The main character in the book is Avery, who is a transplant from New York who has fallen in love with Waterfield, Maine. She works with her boyfriend, Derek, at renovating properties. In this book, they are renovating the home of a local TV personality and fiancee of Derek's ex-wife, Melissa. A DIY television show is planning to tape the renovation.
Avery and Derek walk the crew through the house on the first day, and set up a time line for the film. The next morning Avery and Derek arrive at the house to start their renovation and soon find out that the homeowner has been murdered by a screwdriver. Suspicions soon fall to Melissa, but Avery does not think she is the killer. Avery and Derek soon find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery that they have to solve.
The story is very well-detailed and the plot is excellent. She does a tremendous job blending in the back story. It's a quick read and one you will not be able to put down until you turn the last page.
