Baker & Taylor
Two unlikely friends become sleuths when a sudden thunderstorm reveals skeletal remains hidden amid the roots of a fallen tree and they launch a personal investigation that could turn the tiny town of Tullulah, Alabama, upside down.

McMillan Palgrave

Jane Thistle and Phoebe Twigg are as different as two best friends can be. Phoebe has never seen any reason to leave her small Southern hometown, while Jane, the urbane widow of a career military officer, has traveled all over, only recently putting down roots in Tullulah, Alabama.

At times, Tullulah can be a sleepy little town, but no one sleeps through the thunderstorm that knocks down a tree on Jane’s property and uncovers a pile of skeletal remains buried underneath. Jane has some archaeological experience, thanks to all her travels, and knows a few experts. She invites an old friend to come down to Tullulah to have a look and catch up on old times. When tests discount their best theories and point to a far more recent death, Jane and Phoebe find themselves in the midst of some strange happenings.

Mary Saums’s Mighty Old Bones, the second in this delightful series, rattles Alabama with two of the newest and unlikeliest sleuths throughout the southlands.

Not nearly as engaging as the first in the series. If you could call the first book a mystery with some archaeological bits tossed in, then this is the opposite. There’s so much concern about the land and the site that the plot suffers. Even the paranormal angle wasn’t as charming. This seems to be the last book in this series (so far), and I’m unsure if I’d read a third.
