Thread and Buried by Janet Bolin
Willow is continuing to work on settling into her home and has been working on getting Blueberry Cottage stabilized so that she can rent it out. After a skeleton is found on the grounds of the new hotel under development, making the townfolk remember Snoozy who disappeared with a supposed treasure, the town isn't at all surprised when the treasure box is unearthed in Willow's backyard during the work on Blueberry Cottage.
A community picnic renders the Police chief "under the weather" with food poisoning, and Willow takes up the search for the cause and the culprit.
The characters are wonderful - well-developed allowing for good and bad traits to stand together, as well as strength of character while supporting others. The mystery is well thought out and has sufficient twists and turns to keep the reader entertained.
