Recently, Matinicus (prequel to Reese's Leap) has won both the "Best Mystery," 2013 Indie Book Awards and the Bronze Prize for Regional Fiction from the 2013 IPPY Awards!
Synopsis:In this much-anticipated sequel to the award-winning "Matinicus," five longtime friends—briefly freed from their complex lives for an annual, all-female retreat on Adria Jackman’s remote, 200-acre enclave of Mistake Island, Maine—are forced to put the partying on hold to host the hard-drinking, bachelor botanist, Gil Hodges, stranded there for what could be days. A hopeless womanizer, Gil is secretly pleased at the layover, but soon finds Mistake’s deeply forested interior deceptively bucolic and the women a bit too intriguing for comfort, stirring both glorious memory and profound regret. When a diabolical stranger appears out of nowhere, insinuating himself into the fold to exact a twisted kind of revenge, it falls to Gil to keep the women safe, despite a dawning awareness that not everyone will make it off the island alive.
Review:Reese's Leap is the second part of the Island Series and the first book in the series I have read. Two men stranded on a island during a woman's only retreat then having to protect the woman as events take a turn .An Intense Mystery once I started reading I was pulled through out the rest of the book anticipating each event as it unfolded.I really cannot put into words how great this book is it's one that you have to read for yourself.I highly recommend this book and will definitely be reading the Prequel.

Author Bio:DARCY SCOTT is a live-aboard sailor and experienced ocean cruiser who’s sailed to Grenada and back on a whim, island-hopped through the Caribbean, and been struck by lightning in the middle of the Gulf Stream. Her favorite cruising ground remains the coast of Maine, however, and her appreciation of the history and rugged beauty of its sparsely populated out-islands serves as inspiration for her Maine Island Mystery Series, which includes 2012’s award-winning "Matinicus" and the newly released "Reese’s Leap." Book three, "Ragged Island," is currently in the works. Her debut novel, "Hunter Huntress," was published in June, 2010 by Snowbooks, Ltd., UK.
