Local author and Realtor Vicki Doudera will sign copies of her latest novel in the Darby Farr Mysteries, “Killer Listing,” Saturday, Sept. 3 at 2 p.m. at the Owl & Turtle Bookshop, 32 Washington St. in the Knox Mill complex.

The first Darby Farr mystery, “A House to Die For,” which was selected for the Best of 2010 list in Suspense Magazine, took place in Maine on an island very like Islesboro. Real estate agent Darby Farr solved the mystery and sold the island home with intelligence and clever surprises. “Killer Listing” takes place in warm, sunny Florida, where Darby goes to help her late aunt’s real estate partner with a fabulous listing. Sure enough, she becomes involved in a murder, and Doudera offers enough unsavory suspects to keep readers guessing who the killer is until the end.

Doudera is a million-dollar broker with a busy coastal firm handling luxury real estate. As-well as the Darby Farr Mysteries, she is the author of three nonfiction books on real estate relocation. She belongs to Mystery Writers of America and is on the board of Sisters in Crime, New England. She also is a member of the National Association of Realtors, was Realtor of the Year in 2009,and serves as president of her local Habitat for Humanity chapter, a charity she supports through sales of her mysteries. Doudera lives in her own “house to die for” with her family in Camden.
