Digging Up the Remains

Paperback, 304 pages
Expected publication: August 25th 2020 by Kensington Publishing Corporation

Goodreads synopsis: 
A festive fall is in full swing in Goosebush, Massachusetts, but when a snoopy reporter is felled by foul play, it's up to Lilly and her Garden Squad to spook out a killer . . .

Between hosting a haunted house on her lawn, serving on the town's 400th Anniversary Planning Committee, and prepping for the Fall Festival's 10k fundraiser, Lilly's hands are full. She doesn't have time for prickly newspaper reporter Tyler Crane, who's been creeping around town, looking for dirt on Goosebush's most notable families . . . until he's found dead on the race route moments before the start.

An unfortunate accident? Or did Tyler unearth a secret that someone in Goosebush is willing to kill to keep? By planting nasty rumors and cultivating fear, Tyler sowed a fair share of ill will during his brief time in town. Weeding through the suspects will be thorny, but Lilly and her Garden Squad are determined to root out the autumnal assassin before the Fall Festival flops . . .


4.5 stars

This is the third book in the A Garden Squad mystery series by Julia Henry.

As the fall festival commences, a reporter/blogger has come to town with blackmail on his mind and, of course, he ends up dead with a whole slew of suspects in his wake. Lucy meets this blogger and immediately is on to his game but his reign of  fear branched out pretty far into the community and thus making everyone a suspect for his murder.

I really enjoyed this one. The community was fun and I liked so many of them. Kinda like going home and seeing all the old friends you have missed for so long. The mystery was compelling and the character’s just resonated with me so much. 

This is definitely a series I want to follow. I think I still need to read book one in this lovely series. I gotta get on that soon! Give this one a go!

If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.

I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
