Review DIGGING UP THE REMAINS By Julia Henry

Lilly Jayne can always be depended upon when it comes to supporting community projects in her hometown of Goosebush, Massachusetts. Her family roots in Goosebush go back generations. So it’s no surprise that she’s on the planning committee for the town’s 400th Anniversary, which will also include a Fall Festival 10k fundraiser. But when the committee decides the celebration should also include hosting a haunted house on her lawn, she’s very hesitant.

To add to her discomfort, there’s a nosy reporter in town, Tyler Crane, who’s been spending lots of time talking to local residents and doing his best to find Goosebush secrets to post on his widely read social media blog. The posts are nothing that could be specifically called libel. Instead, they’re nasty little hints with no names mentioned, but everyone in Goosebush immediately knows exactly who he’s talking about.

Lilly’s privacy is violated when one of Tyler’s early posts is obviously about her. With the support of her friends, she takes the high road and ignores it. But when Tyler posts even nastier, hurtful ones about other people in town, Lilly becomes increasingly concerned. She knows that a few of the posts involve vulnerable friends who’ve come back home to Goosebush after suffering a traumatic event, determined to rebuild their lives.

The morning of the 10k fundraiser, Lilly and her friends Delia and Roddy check the route in advance to clear it from any debris so the runners won’t slip. They’re shocked to discover Tyler’s dead body hidden under a pile of leaves. The police determine it’s murder, and the suspect list is a long one. But Tyler’s sudden death doesn’t stop the nasty posts from coming, which adds to the mystery.

“Digging Up the Remains” is an excellent example of cozy writing at its best, with a cast of likeable characters and a well-written, logical plot. I can’t wait for the next one in the Garden Squad Mystery series.
