Darby Farr’s Favorite Brunch by Vicki Doudera
These crepes are favored by the heroine of my mystery series, Darby Farr, a red-hot real estate agent who was raised on Hurricane Harbor, an island in Maine. The first book, A HOUSE TO DIE FOR, was published in April of 2010 by Midnight Ink, and the second, KILLER LISTING, comes out in 2011.
