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. Learn more at www.DarcyScott.net.

Reese's Leap -- An Island Mystery
In this sequel to the award-winning Matinicus, five women on a Maine island retreat are forced to host the bachelor botanist, Gil Hodges, stranded there in the fog. When a diabolical stranger appears out of nowhere bent on a twisted revenge, it falls to Gil to keep the women safe, despite a dawning awareness that not everyone will make it off the island alive.
Matinicus — An Island Mystery
Steeped in Maine island lore, this century-spanning double mystery pits a renegade fishing community against an unhappy child-bride of the 1820s, a defiant twenty-first-century teen, and a hard-drinking botanist who escapes to the island of Matinicus to avoid a crazed ex-lover and verify a rumored 22 species of wild orchid, only to find himself hounded by the ghost of a child some 200 years dead.
