In For a Penny
Coastal Villages Press
2nd edition January 1, 2002
Coastal South Carolina ... ancient live oaks, pristine beaches, the remains of antebellum splendor ... Bay Tanner’s world is paradise until she witnesses her husband’s horrific death. Wounded and grieving, Bay retreats to her beach house on Hilton Head Island until a cry for help forces her out of hiding. Can she ignore the plight of her ‘old money’ friends and family whose involvement in a shadowy land scheme may lead them to financial disaster? And what does all this have to do with Rob’s murder? When a body is discovered floating near the ruins of an old plantation house, Bay is forced to confront these questions and admit that one thing is certain—someone is making a killing in real estate.
