The Cemetery Club

(Darcy & Flora Cozy Mystery Book 1)

By Blanche Day Manos and Barbara Burgess

Goshen Cemetery lay quiet and peaceful under a benevolent spring sky. Darcy Campbell and her mother, Flora Tucker, had no inkling that in a few moments, the scene would change and they would face a horror on the ground and a threat from above, beyond their imaginations.

Becoming entangled in a centuries-old legend, being targeted by a group of ruthless men, and discovering a long-lost love were not in Darcy’s plans when she returned to her birth place, Levi, Oklahoma. She merely wanted to soak up the peace of her mother’s home and try to heal the wounds left from her husband’s death. Fate, however, had other plans for Darcy and Flora.
