A photo assignment at the cemetery leads Callie Cassidy to a corpse—this one above ground. Now, her search for the killer unearths some long-buried secrets…

Callie’s mother Maggie, a notorious hobby jumper, has embarked on a new pursuit—grave rubbing. When she recruits her daughter to photograph her first endeavor at the local cemetery, Callie brings golden retriever Woody and tabby cat Carl along for the outing. It’s a breathtaking autumn morning in Rock Creek Village, Colorado. Golden aspen leaves rustle in the cool breeze, and the air is filled with the scent of pine. What could go wrong on a day like this?

Then, a ghostly woman emerges from the trees, bleeding from a head wound and claiming to have no memory of how she arrived, or even who she is. Maggie quickly identifies her as a woman who disappeared from the village forty years ago—without a trace.

If that’s not enough intrigue, Woody disobeys her and sprints deeper into the cemetery. When Callie catches up to him, he is sitting sentinel at the tombstone of a recently deceased villager. And behind the stone, a man lies on the ground—with a pickaxe jutting from his neck.

Callie recognizes him as the low-level mobster who has been dating her best friend Tonya’s mother—and they’d been having problems. Did Tonya’s mother kill the man? Could it have been the mysterious woman? Or maybe someone with ties to his crime family?

Callie can’t resist investigating—and this time, Detective Raul Sanchez welcomes her assistance. Because if they can’t solve the crime soon, the town may be facing grave consequences…

Q&A With the Author:

What was your inspiration for writing this book?

Cemeteries have always fascinated me, especially those with history. I could spend hours wandering among the tombstones, reading names and dates, visualizing lives lived and lost and creating stories around them. So, it seemed only natural to set a mystery in Rock Creek Village’s graveyard.

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

The growth of the various characters and their relationships is my favorite thing about each book I write, and this one was no different. It’s also so much fun to create a puzzle for readers to solve alongside Callie and her friends. Getting just the right clues and twists is a task I always enjoy. For this particular book, though, I took pleasure in creating a mystery that began forty years earlier. Trying to co-mingle the past and present presented a challenge it was fun to navigate.

Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about?

I will switch gears for the next few months as I immerse myself in a new series, Seahorse Cove Cozy Mysteries. The series will be set in a Texas port town that plays host to cruise ships. Just imagine all the mayhem that might occur when a new ship docks. I know I am! The series is in the early stages, but I’m planning for book 1 to be released sometime this fall.

Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future?

I’m not finished with Callie and Rock Creek Village yet. I love these characters so much they might as well be family. Callie will be back in 2025.

Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans?

I’m grateful to readers for taking this journey with me. It’s been such a pleasure to connect with so many people. I love getting readers’ emails and engaging in conversations. The support and encouragement of people I’ve never met in real life astounds and gratifies me. I also appreciate the bloggers who help me connect with readers. You’re the best!
