After a romance turns sour, Piper Lamb decides to pursue her dream of opening her own shop of pickles and preserves, called Piper's Picklings, in the idyllic small town of Cloverdale. But she isn't in town long before she encounters a barrelful of trouble.
The Cloverdale fair offers Piper a sweet opportunity to promote her business. With her new assistant, Amy, she sets up a booth centered around an eye-catching display of the ever-popular dills in an old-fashioned barrel of brine.
But things turn dicey when fairgoers witness a fight between Amy's boyfriend, Nate, and town council blowhard—and bagpipe player—Alan Rosemont. When Rosemont is found floating in Piper's barrel, Nate becomes the prime murder suspect. With Amy's boyfriend in a pretty pickle, there's no time to dillydally. But as Piper searches for the real killer, she needs to be careful to preserve her own life...or she may end up a pickled Piper herself.

Piper Lamb hoped her new shop of handmade pickles and preserves would take off with a bang. But finding the body of a local bagpiper in her pickle barrel turned things sour fast.
