Synopsis from Goodreads:

Summer storms can bring unwelcome surprises.

When a friend becomes the second person to die under suspicious circumstances, local sleuth Darcy Campbell is drawn into the investigation. Evidence points toward someone she cares about, but has loyalty blinded her to the truth? Danger is closer to Darcy and her mother, Flora, than either of them suspect. And if the human threat is not enough, Lee Creek and the Ventris River flood, bringing Mother Nature into the fray.

My Review

Another captivating tale in the Darcy & Flora Mystery Series. I listened to this one on audio. It makes for such a nice easy listening experience. I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series that I listened to. Michelle Babb always does a great job of keeping her characters alive, while Blanche Day Manos does an equally great job of keeping readers on their toes.

Darcy and Flora are a delightful mother/daughter amateur sleuth team. I love Darcy’s determination to solve a crime, regardless of the sheriff’s annoyance. The sheriff happens to be her love interest as well. It makes for an interesting side storyline.

I’m hoping there will be more books in this series. They are quite enjoyable.

  2. I haven't heard of this series but I love the covers. They sound like a fun detective team and this sounds like a series I'd really enjoy.
