About Fever Tree:
When a handsome and mysterious stranger arrives in Crooked River, the town is consumed by rumors. Although a deeply private young man, Dieter befriends everyone from deckhands to shopkeepers. On the rebound from a disastrous relationship, the charming but hesitant Maggie Paterson falls in love. Teddy Mink, the towns notorious, paranoid drug lord, convinced that Dieters a narc, formulates a plan to silence him. Maggies recently estranged ex, who moonlights as a drug runner for Teddy, jealously agrees that Dieter must be handled no matter the cost.
From the moonlit beaches of Quintana Roo to the waterfront docks of Crooked River, Florida, Fever Tree is a beautifully written story that charts the surprising journey of a deeply troubled young man zealously guarding the secrets of his past.
