Cover Reveal **and giveaway**

by Julie, enjoying the 40 degree heatwave in Somerville

Drum roll, please! I am delighted to share the cover for Garden Squad #5, The Plot Thickets, with all of you!

Another fabulous cover in this series! Here’s the blurb about the book:

The ever-quintessential New England town of Goosebush, Massachusetts truly shines in springtime, but when an underhanded undertaker digs herself an early grave, it’s up to sixty-something gardening sleuth Lilly Jayne—and her fellow Garden Squad members of course— to unearth the cryptic killer…

With spring’s arrival in Goosebush, Lilly and the Beautification Committee turn their eyes to new projects. A cleanup of the historic Goosebush Cemetery may be in order, after Lilly and Delia find the plots there sorely neglected and inexplicably rearranged. Lilly soon discovers that Whitney Dunne-Bradford snapped up custodianship of the graveyard once she inherited Bradford Funeral Homes. But before Lilly can get to the bottom of the tombstone tampering, she stumbles upon Whitney’s body at the Jayne family mausoleum…

Though at first it appears Whitney died by suicide, Lilly has doubts, and apparently, so does Chief of Police Bash Haywood, who quickly opens a murder investigation. Plenty of folks in town had bones to pick with Whitney, including her stepdaughter, Sasha, and funeral home employee, Dewey Marsh—all three recently charged with illegal business practices. But when the homicide inquiry suddenly targets an old friend, Lilly and the Garden Squad must rally to exhume the truth before the real killer buries it forever…

Chronologically, in Goosebush time, this book takes place a year after Pruning the Dead. and several months after Wreathing Havoc. It will be released on October 25, 2022, and I can’t wait for you all to read it!

You can pre-order it from your favorite bookstore,, Amazon or Barnes&Noble!

Readers, I want you to be able to comment, but I don’t want to make this too taxing, so how about this–how much do you love this cover? To celebrate, I’m giving away 3 copies of Wreathing Havoc to a commenter!
