Finalist, 2018 Bony Blithe Award for Best Canadian Light Mystery

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.

Rickie Blair’s Digging Up Trouble

Verity Hawkes is now living in Leafy Hollow which
is a small town in the Ontario province. Her Aunt
Adeline has disappeared. Her Aunt’s lawyer believes
that her Aunt is dead, making Verity the heir.
Verity has also taken over her Aunt’s landscaping
business. She has learned about the various types
of gardening plants. So when she is asked to spruce
up the landscape near the crypt of a famous Leafy
Hollow historical figure, Verity notes trampled weeds
near the crypts door.
When the crypt is opened, a newly murdered man is
found. How did the man get into the crypt? Who
murdered him? Why was he murdered?
While investigating this, Verity and her crew discover
yet another murdered victim.
Verity has a once feral cat, General Chang who came
to live with her. He helps calm her fears. He will be the
hero of the book.
This is a complex plotted book. Besides mystery, suspense
the book has a touch of humor.
The characters are well written, very colorful, quirky and
an interesting group.
