Fever Tree

By Tim Applegate

Rumors fly when a mysterious stranger arrives...

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. But what is he running from?
Dieter’s guarded nature and shrouded past fuel the fatal events that unfold. From the moonlit beaches of Quintana Roo to the historic town of Crooked River, Florida, Fever Tree is a beautifully written story about grief and loss, but ultimately healing and finding your way again.
