Spring may be around the corner, but organic farmer-turned-sleuth Cam Flaherty will have to set aside her seedlings as she tills the soil for clues in the mysterious death of a local poultry maven . . .
With the birds once again chirping, Cam should be spending her days pruning blueberry bushes and taking care of the new batch of chicks that just hatched. But murder knows no season. When her fellow fowl-raiser Wayne Laitinen is found dead, Cam dons her crime-solving hat and quickly digs up a bounty of motives. Scandal, blackmail, cover-ups. There’s a fox in the hen house. But where? With some help from her off-again, on-again flame, police detective Pete Pappas, Cam will have to crack this case before Wayne’s killer flies the coop forever.
