Things only get worse when Link Fairweather is found dead in the Mough's north pasture, with Josh's winter scarf beneath his body. Josh is immediately arrested and nearly everyone in town thinks Josh is guilty. Everyone except Ellie. It's up to Ellie to clear Josh of the charges before he's formally indicted, or her dear friends, the Moughs, could not only lose their business but their eldest son too.
With Charlie on hand to help her, Ellie sets out to find the real killer before all hope is lost - or someone else winds up dead.
