A New England organic farmer goes looking for a fox in the hen house when her kindly neighbor is murdered in this cozy mystery.
With the weather getting warmer, organic farmer Cam Flaherty is busy pruning blueberry bushes and taking care of the new batch of chicks that just hatched. But when her fellow fowl-raiser Wayne Laitinen is found dead at his breakfast table one morning, Cam must put down her trimming shears and put on her crime-solving hat. The kind-hearted chicken farmer didn't have any enemies—or did he?
A wealthy financier has been working hard to convince Wayne to sell her his land, while a group of animal rights activists recently vandalized his property. Money troubles were threatening to sink his marriage. And a thirty-year-old scandal was driving a wedge between him and one of his oldest friends. 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.
