The second book in the Shady Hollow series, in which some long-buried secrets come to light, throwing suspicion on a beloved local denizen. It's autumn in Shady Hollow, and residents are looking forward to harvest feasts. But then a rabbit discovers a grisly crop: the bones of a moose. Soon, the owner of Joe's Mug is dragged out of the coffeeshop and questioned by the police about the night his wife walked out of his life--and Shady Hollow--forever. It seems like an open-and-shut case, but dogged reporter Vera Vixen doesn't believe gentle Joe is a killer. She'll do anything to prove his innocence ... even if it means digging into secrets her neighbors would rather leave buried. A VINTAGE CRIME/BLACK LIZARD ORIGINAL.

The town of Shady Hollow is once again upset when the bones of a moose are found in an orchard. The only suspect is Joe, the owner of the local coffee shop whose wife disappeared years ago. & it‘s up to Vera Vixen to prove his innocence.

This whole series is so charming! The characters are distinct, & the setting is lovely. The mystery was really clever & paced very well, & Vera is such a great protagonist. She‘s plucky & determined! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I just finished the first book today - I agree, it‘s delightfully charming! 3w
BookBr I just picked up the first book, totally charmed by the premise, and can‘t wait to read! 3w

My library got the e-books of the Shady Hollow cozy mystery series in finally so I‘m working through them. They are fun cozies told from animal POVs & I find they just work if you can picture the friendships & relationships between the different animal characters. I really like Vera our fox reporter/detective & the small town vibe. This one centers on the disappearance of popular coffee⬇️

DebinHawaii … shop owner Joe‘s wife (moose) a decade+ before when bones are found in the orchard. Vera is on the case while also reporting on an elegant silver mink opening an etiquette teaching business in Shady Hollow. A quick read & good fun, start with the first book: 1mo

Taking a break from trying to gather some things for my upcoming Maine work trip along with other errands. Camping at the coffee shop for a bit with the barista‘s recommendation of the Kai Club sandwich & my usual dirty chai latte with Oatmilk & a pump of coconut syrup.

Reading a few chapters of the tagged book & all the #5JoysFriday post I haven‘t gotten to yet. 💛💛💛 Then journaling catch up & some #LitsyLove replies.

This is another pretty much perfect cozy read.
And as much as talking animals living in a small town are fantasy, that bit remains incidental to the mystery.
And there are so many sly bits that made me giggle.

This is such a cute cozy mystery. Read it in one go. Make sure you have your favorite Autumn treats and hot drinks. It was very predictable and I figured it out very quickly, but it was about the setting and the cozy autumn vibes. Especially since it is raining on and off.

11 year murder mystery to solve

The second in the shady hollow series, it gets easier to forget they are all animals, this has more of a mystery to work out, and long overdue justice is finally served. Joe learns where is wife is, and why, Vera learns to trust Orville. Better than book one, or I‘ve got better at ignoring obvious problems.
