No cold case is more important than the one that destroyed her own family

Every small town has one unsolved case that haunts its memory, festering for generations below the surface with the truth of humanity's darkness. Star Cavanaugh is obsessed with the one that tore her family apart.

Over sixty years ago, Daisy Doe was murdered and discarded outside Pineville, Alabama, buried without a name or anyone to mourn her loss. When Star's father tried to solve the case, he was also killed. Now a cold-case detective with resources of her own, Star is determined to get to the bottom of both crimes. But she'll have to face an entire town locked in corruption, silence, and fear--and the same danger that took two other lives. The only people in the town she can trust are her grandmother and the charming Mike Luinetti, and both of them trust a God Star isn't sure she believes in. Can Christians so focused on the good really help her track down this evil?

With an irresistible combination of sharp suspense, faith, humor, and authentic regional flavor,
Burying Daisy Doe will draw fans of Terri Blackstock, Margaret Maron, Jaime Jo Wright, and J.T. Ellison.

Praise for this book

"A terrific read! Burying Daisy Doe has it all?a gripping story, excellent pacing, great characters, and a richly detailed setting." - Rick Acker

"Burying Daisy Doe is Ramona Richards’s most chilling, most captivating work yet. When Star Cavanaugh moves into Pineville to investigate the cold case murders of her grandmother and her father, she has no idea of the Pandora’s Box she is about to open . . . and I had no idea how late I was about to stay up reading to find out what happened next. The intricate storyline goes beyond a simple ‘hero versus villain’ suspense tale to the dueling capacities for good and evil that reside in us all. Burying Daisy Doe is the kind of book that makes you want to sleep with the light on yet compels you to read into the night, as answers reveal more questions. It kept me guessing and kept me up late . . . and I can’t recommend it highly enough." - Jodie Bailey

"Burying Daisy Doe is a gripping story that exposes the secrets of a small Southern town caught up in three generations of evil. It took the courage of Star Cavanaugh, searching for her grandmother’s and father’s murderers, to uncover the truth in a tale that will keep you in suspense to the end." - Patricia Bradley

"I’m reminded yet again why Ramona Richards is one of my favorite suspense writers. And this may be her best book yet! Riveting from the beginning and filled with suspense . . . I bet you can’t just read one chapter!" - Kathy Harris

"I absolutely loved Burying Daisy Doe and cannot wait for the next Star Cavanaugh Cold Case. Richards seamlessly combined all the things I love into one fabulous story: a heroine to root for?and a hunky police chief she’d be a fool to resist?a tightly-plotted mystery, a small town peppered with lovable, quirky characters, and ultimately, justice for those who’d waited much too long to receive it. This series will definitely go on my ‘auto-buy’ list. Highly recommended!" - Connie Mann
