What’s happening at Musgrove Manner may simply be murder—or it could be something far darker and more sinister!

From the cover:

Zinnia, Mississippi is rife with quirky characters, but the arrival of three sister witches—and their intention to open a Wiccan boarding school—sets the small town on its ear. And bodies begin to accumulate as a result. Faith, Hope, and Charity Harrington are sexy and smart. They’re setting up their boarding school in an old dairy—a piece of property with tremendous development potential. And they’re standing in the way of “progress,” according to some in the town.

When young Corey Fontana goes missing, Delaney Detective Agency is hired to find the youth—who’s well known as a local hooligan. His mother, Kitten Fontana, who is married to the kind of land development, believes the witches have abducted her son and makes no bones about it. She’s willing to pay hard cash to find her son, especially if she can implicate the witches in his disappearance.

When Sarah Booth Delaney and her partner, Tinkie Richmond, find Corey, unharmed, it is only the beginning of a series of events that include midnight dances under a full moon, love potions, and murder. Are the sister witches criminals… or victims? Do they truly have magical powers, as they claim? Sarah Booth and Tinkie must find the answer before more people are harmed.

Join in the fun with Sarah Booth and the gang as they unravel what’s really happening at Musgrove Manor—and who is behind the skullduggery.

You can pick up a copy or order it at your favorite indie bookstore, Amazon, B&N, iBooks, GooglePlay, & Kobo.

And don’t forget that St. Martin’s is offering a great price on ROCK-A-BYE BONES (only $2.99 for the ebook!) for the rest of April. Share with your friends and family if they haven’t read this book.


After my battle with the evil pink garbage can, I have had the staples removed and the wound is almost healed. When the staples were in, it looked like a zipper in my noggin. But that is the past. I’m healed!

I’ve cut the grass for the first time this season. I don’t mind this chore until about July, and then I hate it because I’m hot and the grass and dirt stick to me. Right now, though, I love the smell of the fresh cut grass.

I’m on deadline for the 2019 bones—A GAME OF BONES!—so it’s back to work for me. And don’t forget we’ll have a Christmas bonus this year with a whole new novel, A GIFT OF BONES which is available for preorder now if you’d like to get that chore done and let me say it will make a nice Christmas gift for those who enjoy the series!

Happy May is coming at you! I might have a May Pole dance. (That sounds really, really bad, doesn’t it?) That would be fun!
