A mysterious casket. A rising body count. A new mystery has bloomed…

Verity Hawkes misses her recluse lifestyle, but she’s finally starting to settle in as Leafy Hollow’s resident landscaper. At least until a village-wide cupcake battle helps turn one new visitor from a skeptic to a corpse in record time. When her friend’s crush shockingly confesses to the crime, Verity is once again asked to investigate…

Potential clues come in as fast as the suspects: a documentary film director, a wacky artist, and a feral-cat enthusiast, to name a few. It turns out everyone in town has skeletons in their closet… even her new friends. If Verity doesn’t find out the truth soon, then the next local legend buried in the ground… could be her.

Digging Up Trouble is the charming second installment in a series of witty cozy mysteries. If you like puzzling whodunits, eccentric characters, and countless laugh-out-loud moments, then you’ll love Rickie Blair’s Leafy Hollow Mysteries.
