"Unable to resist the lure of one last investigation, Jane makes it her business to find some answers. Though normally a woman of few words, Jane manages to talk herself into every corner of Green Haven, and in a small town like this, it isn't long before the wrong person finds out that she's been asking the right questions. In Green Haven, all answers lead to the ocean -- and when Jane finds herself at sea, in the ferocious grip of an almost perfect storm, she has the chilling realization that her life may well be in the hands of the very murderer whom she's been seeking."--Jacket
Shiver hitch by Linda Greenlaw( Book )
4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 484 libraries worldwide
"Jane Bunker thought she'd escaped the pollution, noise, and dead bodies of the big city when she left her job as a Miami homicide detective and moved back to the idyllic town of Green Haven, Maine. But through her work as a marine insurance investigator, it appears she's left behind the bustle of the city, but not the murder. When Jane is called to the remote Acadia Island to assess the damages from a house fire, she also finds a badly burned body in the charred rubble, and it turns out that the victim is the owner of the house, a wealthy woman who just happens to be one of the most hated women in town. As Jane investigates further, she becomes embroiled in a plot as thick as New England clam chowder, which involves convicted felons, a real estate scam, and the deep conflicts between the locals and the summer folks. On top of trying to find what might be a murderer on the loose, Jane is still living with her bonkers landlords, the Vickersons, who are delighted when Jane finds out that her brother Wally (who has Down's syndrome) is going to move in with them, after losing his assisted living arrangement. It's all Jane can do to keep all the moving pieces together, much less figure out who would want to burn someone alive--and why"--
Slipknot by Linda Greenlaw( Book )

When Jane Bunker moves back to the sleepy Maine fishing village where she was born, it's to escape the seamy crime scenes and unsavory characters that crossed her path in Miami. Surely, whatever crimes are committed in touristy, idyllic Green Haven will be mild by comparison. So it's a shocker when Nick Dow, the town drunk, turns up dead--and it's no accident. The more Jane digs, the more confused she gets. Nothing is what it seems, and the whole town is in each other's business. Clearly, the killer is hiding in plain sight--and he could be anyone!

Bimini Twist by Linda Greenlaw( Book )
2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 176 libraries worldwide
"Jane Bunker returns in another thrilling, small-town mystery set in Down East Maine. It seems like everyone in Green Haven knows that Jane Bunker has scored an invite to the ultra-exclusive Summer Solstice Soiree--and they all assume she'll be in attendance, as one of the few eligible single women in town. Of course, that's the last place Jane would like to be; hobnobbing and making small talk with the upper crust isn't exactly her idea of a good time. She prefers to put in her hours working as an insurance investigator, and part-time as the deputy sheriff. When she gets to work one morning, the sheriff asks her to take a break on her personal war on drugs--it seems that she's been so successful catching dealers and interrupting the flow of drugs in the area that she's called too much attention to just how bad it's gotten, and the community is worried that all the attention on the drug trade will deter the summer tourists that Green Haven so badly needs to keep the economy going. Instead, Jane takes on a missing person case--a young woman working at the Bar Harbor Inn has disappeared. The Inn employs foreign exchange students from all over the world during the busy summer season, and the missing Bianca Chiriac is one of them. When it becomes clear that Bianca isn't just sleeping off a late-night party, Jane is plunged into the underbelly of the resort town, and must find the missing woman before the worst happens"--
