Publisher's Summary

Summer storms can bring unwelcome surprises.

During the rainiest July on record for the people of Ventris County in Oklahoma, in the midst of a violent thunderstorm, a stranger is murdered. 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.

Has the whole world turned on Darcy and Flora?

    "Great Story With Perfect Narrator"

    Blanche Day Manos has crafted another great mystery in her Darcy and Flora series. Darcy and Flora are a well crafted daughter and mother living in a small town in Oklahoma. They are well rounded characters who still have room to grow. Darcy's love interest Grant is the county sheriff and her high school sweetheart. Grant is slowly growing and becoming a more prominent character that will and can grow in future books. The plot is intriguing and has lots of twist and turns. The story keeps you interested to the very end.
    Michelle Babb is the perfect narrator for this series. She brings Darcy and Flora to life. Her overall performance helps keep you listening to the end.
    I highly recommend this great book. The perfect cozy for anytime of day.

    "A Wonderful Country Mystery Series."

    "...a great break from your typical mystery book...and a must have for anyone looking for a great page turner with mystery and mayhem." -- 

    This audio book was very well written and preformed. Congrulations Darcy & Flora The two of you really put your heads together on this peice of excellent literary work. There are not many character's out here that have had me twisted up to the very end. I don't wont to ruin it for the next reader... so all I will say is what a wonderful thrill ride the series was for me. I feel as I though I just stepped off a Rollercoaster. Bravo to Michelle Babb !! your narration's were exquisitely preformed. Bringing character and depth to the story.. This is definitely a MUST read for the Mystery/Thriller genres.

    "Twists"

    I am starting to feel that I know all the regular characters quite well. I love the relationship between Darcy and her mother Flora along with all the neigbours. The pets even have a personality of their own. This was another cozy mystery that was very well narrated. Will there be others in the series? I hope so.

    "Book #4 in series and just better and better."

    I really enjoyed this book which is the 4th in this fun series. This series just keeps getting better and better. Once again Michelle Babb has done a wonderful job of narrating this book. I can't wait for book #5. I was gifted this book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review.

    "Another Good Story"

    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.

    "Hmm, just where did that pie go?"

    Grave Heritage, by Blanche Day Manos, is another great addition to the Darcy and Flora Cozy Mystery series. With a mystery man on Darcy's doorstep in the first scene, readers are drawn into this mystery right at the outset. And with a flood, missing sisters and a couple murders the story just keeps getting better and better. Just who was the mystery man and who is the new guitar-playing pastor at the church? How are they connected to the murders? Can Darcy and Flora solve this one without becoming victims themselves?
    Narrator Michelle Babb does her usual great job of telling the story and bringing the characters to life. Another wonderful listen!
    I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and was not required to give a positive review. The opinions are my own.

    "Another fun sleuthing story of Darcy and Flora!"

    Cozy mysteries aren't my first pick of genres, but I love these stories. Darcy and her mother, Flora are such warm, wonderful characters. I think we all wish we could get along with our mothers the way Darcy gets along with hers. Along with the warmth of their relationship, Ms. Manos throws in suspense, complicated relationships, mysterious people, innocent people who are suspected of crimes and Darcy's trying to deal with widowhood and being attracted to another man (or men).
    The story is fast paced and easy to listen to. The narration by Michelle Babb is clear and fun to listen to. If you like cozy mysteries, I highly recommend this series.

    "Grave Heritage"

    Grave Heritage: Darcy & Flora Cozy Mystery, Book 4
    : Blanche Day Manos

    A cozy mystery that gives the listener just about anything they might want. Old familiar friends and family are back along with several new characters. We get murder, suspense , romance, things that vanish, other things that go bump in the night. Toss in nasty weather, people from the past and serve with pie and coffee for an entertaining listen! I can't wait to see what comes next.


    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Michelle Babb adds the winning touch to this book.

    "Jenny's review"

    What a crazy cozy mystery this one turned out to be and I liked every bit of it!
    Flora and Darcy are a good team in solving some tough issues that are placed in there paths with God watching out for them. With tons of family history coming out of the woodwork and someone who's greed gets the better of them. Darcy's Sheriff Hendly has to jump into action to try and keep her safe because Darcy can't seem to stay out of trouble. When she finds a body of a man that had appeared on their porch the day before then the new preacher isn't who he says Darcy knows she has to find answers.
    Will Grant be able to protect her as she starts digging?

    Michelle Babb does an amazing job bringing all the characters to life and I really enjoy listening to her!!!!

    The only frustrating thing for me is Grant and Darcy are not engaged yet, even though they came really close and the story ended. :)
    I was given this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

    "Another good book"

    Another good book in the series. I did feel that it was a bit short, it could have been fleshed out a bit, but a good addition to the series.
