All Fired Up

Book 1

Marianne Dunaway has returned to Orcas Island on an innocent dare only to discover that trouble awaits. Her sister won't speak to her and someone on the island is stirring awake island folklore of stolen jewels all pointing to an unsolved case linked to her grandfather's past. Just when threatening notes make it clear that this is no joke, and someone wants her grandfather to pay dearly, a handsome stranger knocks on her door offering to assist. Coincidence? Or a true hero to the rescue, but at a price.
