While patrolling the fairgrounds, determined to catch the perp, Meg runs into her friend Molly, who has been building a successful business making goat cheeses.

As always I love the Andrews bird titled books. She is ever so funny. She puts me on the floor at times, I also love the way you get to meet old friends and catch up with what the family is doing. They are all a bunch of nuts and fun to read about. They mystery was just that a good mystery, but most enjoyable is her way of writing. Such fun. I love the way she describes the animals and their interaction with the people. She was very funny with the actions of the llamas and the things they did with them such as the dress up part with Rob in the mix. Great stories and I didn't know who the killer was until the person acted against Meg. It was a surprise but a great ending, everyone got what was coming to them. Look forward to the next in the series.
