After agreeing to stay in Lily Dale through the winter as caretakers of the Valley View Guesthouse and its feline residents, widowed mom Bella Jordan and her son Max are looking forward to the peaceful off-season after a hectic summer. That is until the medium next door, Odelia Lauder, recruits Bella to host a destination wedding for the world's most petulant bride, Johneen Maynard, a friend of Odelia's granddaughter.
Things take an even more stressful turn as the wedding day looms amidst an October blizzard, when suddenly the Spirits start giving Odelia a major heads up that the bride might be fated for death. And if there's any truth to her premonitions, the wedding is off--and that's the least of their problems.
It's a race to figure out who would want to kill Johneen before her attacker has a chance to strike in Something Buried, Something Blue.

Bestseller Staub’s charming second Lily Dale Mystery (after 2015’s Nine Lives) finds widowed Isabella Jordan and her five-year-old son, Max, settled in Lily Dale, N.Y., a spiritualist center. Her neighbors are eccentric but warmhearted, and Bella loves managing the Valley View Guesthouse. If the guesthouse can turn a profit in the off season, Bella hopes that she and Max will be able to live there permanently, so she agrees to host a destination wedding at the inn. But it will be hard to pull off the perfect outdoor wedding when her loathed mother-in-law unexpectedly shows up, a blizzard is brewing, and a spirit guide is warning Bella that something is sorely amiss—not that Bella believes in that sort of thing, or so she tells herself, until the bride turns blue and collapses. Perhaps it was heart failure, or perhaps there’s a murderer in the house. A touch of the paranormal, a hint of romance, and a sweet and sympathetic protagonist will lure readers to enchanting Lily Dale again and again. Agent: Laura Blake Peterson, Curtis Brown. (Oct.)
