Publisher's Summary

Darcy Campbell might have expected life in a small Oklahoma town nestled in the beautiful Ozark foothills to be as idyllic as the scenery. That, however, is not what she finds when she returns to her hometown of Levi after the death of her husband.
One autumn morning, Darcy and her mother, Flora Tucker, are enjoying a cup of coffee in their hundred-year old farmhouse when Darcy gets an urgent telephone call. The contractor who is digging the foundation for their new home insists that Darcy drop everything and come to the building site as quickly as she can. He has found a mysterious object deep in a hand-dug well and he needs Darcy's help in retrieving it.
The ancient, crumbling package pulled from the well contains two items that are as shocking as they are inscrutable. In trying to decipher the meaning of these long-buried objects, Darcy and Flora discover a dark secret from their family's past.
A kidnapping, a brush with death, and a stranger's greed add to the mix. The era of World War I becomes enmeshed with the present day as Darcy and Flora unravel a tangled web of deceit that has ensnared their family.
Volume 3 of the Darcy & Flora cozy mystery series.

Twisty!

This mystery is like peeling an onion, the layers just keep uncovering more and more of the past and it all impacts the present. The publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers here. This series is compelling, suspenseful, and yet has plenty of humor. I have enjoyed every one that I've read and can't pick a favorite.
I prefer audio and Michelle Babb is great!

Great Story and Great Narration!

Darcy and Flora are at it again. Blanche Day Manos has once again crafted a well balanced story. The characters are well rounded and grow more and more with each book. The plot is fantastic and keeps you interested to the end. Michelle Babb is the most fantastic narrator and her interpretation of Darcy and Flora is spot on. She brings the story to life. Manos and Babb make a great team. A must listen that you will highly enjoy.
