It was a bone from a baby's arm. Like a twig on Sage Westfield's glove, the ends crumbled away by the action of the sieve, it was still distinctive to a trained eye.

'Lady George?' Sage took a step into the hall. the golden retriever padded over, wagging her tail, followed by Lord Banstock, who took a bite out of a sandwich held in one hand.
This week I am spotlighting a recent arrival on TBR Mountain. A Baby's Bones by Rebecca Alexander is the first in the Sage Westfield series. It was a Kindle Daily Deal for $1.99 then. Here is the description from Amazon:
Archaeologist Sage Westfield has been called in to excavate a sixteenth-century well, and expects to find little more than soil and the odd piece of pottery. But the disturbing discovery of the bones of a woman and newborn baby make it clear that she has stumbled onto an historical crime scene—one that is interwoven with an unsettling local legend of witchcraft and unrequited love.

Yet there is more to the case than a four-hundred-year-old mystery. The owners of a nearby cottage are convinced that it is haunted, and the local vicar is being plagued with abusive phone calls. Then a tragic death makes it all too clear that a modern murderer is at work . . .
