The Cemetery Club
~ Book 1 of the Darcy & Flora Cozy Mystery Series ~
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.
Praise for The Cemetery Club
I love cozy mysteries, and I found this Christian cozy to be enjoyable. Darcy is a reporter who,
along with her mother,gets entangled in a mystery to solve the death of one of her mom's good
friends. They find themselves in a world of trouble, including a tornado, a car wreck, and being stalked.
This book has plenty of adventure and a nice message too.
~ Ronda Del Boccio
I've read Cemetery Club twice and enjoyed both readings. A good author, in my estimation grips
the reader's attention on the first page and the authors did that with this book. I couldn't
put the book down until I read it all. That's a good book.
~ Carol Knapper
Grab a cup of coffee and settle in to read this adventurous cozy mystery. The story is
appealing to those who love suspense but not harsh language.
~ Nancy Kay Grace, author of The Grace Impact
Great characters and excellent read. Kept me in suspense. Looking forward to Book No. 2 in this series.
Danger! Intrigue! Romance! What more could you ask for in a wonderful new cozy? Darcy and
Flora are a daughter/mother duo who will captivate your interest and keep you coming back for more.
