Baker & Taylor
Two unlikely friends--Jane Thistle, the urbane, world-traveling widow of a military officer, and the provincial Phoebe Twigg--turn sleuth once again when a sudden thunderstorm reveals some 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. Reprint.

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 Alabama hometown, while Jane, once happily married to a career military officer, has traveled all over the world. But somehow, these two women, both of them widowed, always manage to make life in the slow lane a wild ride...

Yes, Tullulah can be a sleepy little town. But no one sleeps through the night a violent thunderstorm knocks down a tree on Jane’s property—one that uncovers a pile of skeletal remains beneath. Thanks to her travels, Jane happens to know a bit about archaeology, and has friends in high places. So she invites an archaeological expert to come over for a look...only to find that things in Tullulah are not at all as they seem. Now it's up to the town's superior senior sleuths Thistle and Twigg to dig up the truth.

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.
