Summer in Wisconsin sprouts a home-grown murder on the O’Connor Farm. Frankie’s hunt for clues lands her deep in sheep doo-doo, especially after rare stones surface. Crime-solving is no picnic for the baker/vintner as she hops from farm to vineyard to bakery, keeping up with the tourist season while tracking a killer.
