Overview
It s been a hot, dry spring in Westbury, Massachusetts. As organic farmer Cam Flaherty waits for much-needed rain, storm clouds of mystery begin to gather. Once again, it s time to put away her sun hat and put on her sleuthing cap . . .
May has been anything but merry for Cam so far. Her parents have arrived unexpectedly and her crops are in danger of withering away. But all of that s nothing compared to the grim fate that lies in store for one of her neighbors. Nicole Kingsbury is the proud owner of the town s new hydroponic greenhouse. She claims the process will be 100% organic, but she uses chemicals to feed her crops. To Cam s surprise, her mother embarrasses her by organizing a series of loud public protests against Nicole s operation.
When Nicole is found dead in a vat of hydroponic slurry clutching another set of rosary beads Detective Pete Pappas has a new murder to solve. Showers may be scarce this spring, but there s no shortage of suspects, including the dead woman s embittered ex husband, the Other Man whose affair ruined their marriage, and Cam s own mother. Lucky for Cam, her father turns out to have a knack for sleuthing not to mention dealing with chickens. Will he and Cam be able to clear Mrs. Flaherty s name before the killer strikes again?
