Baltimore-born Jen Pierce is starting to settle into her new job as a reporter at the Wimsy Voice, and her new life in small-town Wimsy, Maine. The town's busy enough to keep a reporter hopping, though violence is usually on the level of one neighbor punching another in the nose after they've both had too much beer. Then, in very short order, a handsome stranger moves to town, and a local preacher is murdered at the barn-raising for a newly settled Wiccan couple. Jen's bucolic life is about to get interesting.

"With obvious affection, Sharon Lee introduces us to Wimsy, Maine, where a timeless and timely contemporary mystery leads us and transplanted flatlander Jen Pierce into a world containing witches, internet bulletin boards, an antique electric railroad, and murder -- a world built with the same attention to characters, story, and setting that we have long expected in the Liaden Universe(R) books. Like all of her books, this one is a keeper..." -- Modean Moon, author of RWA Rita award winner The Covenant
