Inheriting her aunt’s old Maine cottage has led Avery
Baker down a new career path—home renovation. Finding
a property’s hidden potential has rewards and
challenges—not to mention certain unanticipated
dangers. Like murder...
Avery and her hunky handyman boyfriend Derek Ellis are
renovating another house in Waterfield, Maine. But
it’s not just any house. It belongs to local news
anchor Tony “the Tiger” Micelli—and
it’s a quaint cottage with limitless possibilities.
Even more exciting is that the makeover is going to be
filmed as part of a home renovation TV show.
Unfortunately the road to cable TV fame is a bumpy one: this
DIY spins into a DOA when Tony’s corpse is found at
the cottage, flat on his back and not from natural causes.
Turns out there were a few people who wanted Tony dead, and
that the murderer might have his sights set on a few more
Waterfield residents. That means it’s up to Avery to
nail the killer. Before someone yells "Cut!" and it's all over.
