The return of CW McCoy

While showing a mansion in the tony resort town of Spanish Point, former police detective CW (Candace) McCoy discovers the naked body of a rival real estate agent, a black bra wrapped around her neck. A rival agent, the woman has filed a wrongful-death suit against CW. And now the woman’s dead, in a mansion near the tony resort town of Spanish Point, Florida . . . just in time for the showing.

The murder is the least of CW’s problems. Her career is faltering. The hot new cop she’s dating may face assault charges. Both her best friend and mentor question her judgement. And back-to-back hurricanes threaten to flatten the coast.

As the bodies mount, CW must uncover the truth about her friends, her lover and a serial killer who specializes in murdering female agents . . . before she becomes a victim herself.

The third outing for CW (after Peak Season and Tourist in Paradise), Curb Appeal is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes and Kobo, as well as bookstores everywhere.

Haunted by a father who destroyed her family and a skinhead who wants to finish the job, CW must confront her violent past as well as a dangerous future as she uncovers a conspiracy that leads from the sunny beaches of Florida to the statehouse.
