The last thing interior decorator Maggie Harding expected was to have her one and only weekend fling come back to bite her in the butt. Maggie is used to living her life according to her rules for living. She is a slave to order, control, to-do lists neatly checked off to the last item. To her, they equal a life lived within safe boundaries. So the one time she gives into impulse and has a wild, intensely passionate weekend of sex and pizza with Tyler Brody, she does not expect to ever see him again.

Five years later, Maggie runs into him at a house party in the Hamptons, with uber rich folk and Hollywood A-list stars. Tyler’s got more than cocktails and lounge chairs in mind when he sees Maggie. If the sexy smile of his face is anything to go by, Tyler is very interested in taking up where they left off – pizza included.

Nonetheless, Maggie is trying to avoid making the same mistake – even though her body has a very long memory and is screaming at her to jump while she can. The make matters worse, one of the guests is found dead on the lawn and the remainder of the attendees are put under house arrest, while the authorities investigate. Just when Maggie has seen a way out of her predicament, this happened. Now, in order to get away from the most alluring man she has ever met, Maggie has to find a killer. But will she be able to take the last step away from Tyler when she has the chance.

Murder in the Hamptons lends a kernel of truth to the old adage that no good deed goes unpunished. Amy Garvey has penned a hilarious, fast paced, amateur sleuth whodunit. This newcomer has a hell of a bright future ahead of her because she only gets better and better.
