Review: Grave Shift by Blanche Day Manos and Barbara Burgess, narrated by Michelle Babb

Cozy Mystery


Pen-L Publishing

Release Date:
February 19, 2016

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Before the long nightmare ended, Darcy would often wish her mother had not opened that letter from an unknown woman. But, she did open it and shared it with her daughter, plunging both Darcy Campbell and Flora Tucker into a tale of an unsolved mystery, a web of secrets, and the discovery of an unsuspected traitor.

In tracking down clues about the disappearance of a young woman, Darcy and Flora leave their hometown of Levi, Oklahoma, and drive to Amarillo, Texas, then back again. Following leads that have long been covered, both women find more than one surprise including some discoveries about themselves.

My Review

This is a new-to-me series. It’s the second one in the Darcy & Flora Cozy Mystery series. It’s always fun to be introduced to a new series. I didn’t feel as if I was missing anything by not having read the first one. A mother/daughter sleuth team is a bit different and works well with these two.

The plot is interesting with an engaging cast of characters. The narrator, Michelle Babb, has a wonderful talent for giving a different voice to each character. It makes for an enjoyable listening experience. I’m looking forward to listening to more of this series.
