(Adam Dutton & Beverly Laborde Series #1)
Winner of the Virginia Indie Author Project from Biblioboard and Library Journal
Revenge is best served ... bold.
When Beverly Laborde becomes a con artist to exact vengeance on the man who shut down her grandmother's antiques business and sent her to an early grave, Beverly comes face to face with the handsome but haunted Vermont police detective, Adam Dutton.
But Beverly and Adam soon face an even worse problem than their inconvenient growing attraction toward each other: they've both incurred the wrath of the wealthy and formidable Reggie Forsythe. Forsythe’s criminal tendrils seem to reach into all areas of Vermont politics and the Northeastern Antiquities League. And he’ll do anything to keep his dark secrets safe.
Beverly and Adam enlist the help of a sympathetic antiques dealer and the mysterious “Mr. X,” but will it be enough to prove Forsythe is guilty not only of theft and bribery but possibly murder? Beverly and Adam soon learn that if they can't outgun their nemesis individually, together they just might have a fighting chance.
