Ava the Almost Dachshund: Available for pre-order on APRIL 15, 2023!

The Bone Farm

Since at least 1955, the Watkins Farm has been hiding secrets – bones. And lots of them. When unsuspecting contractors uncover the burial ground, it becomes national news, and Celia is determined to uncover the story first.

The more she digs, the more connections she finds between the grisly farm and the last person she ever expected. How did all those people die, who killed them, and what part did Celia’s friend play in the terrible crimes?

This is the third installment of the Celia Brockwell Suspense series, including Chosen By a Killer and Revenge al Dente.
