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?
