Helen Wiels Wagner is as stunned as the rest of the town at the death of a woman she'd never considered her friend. While everyone from the sheriff to the woman's husband is willing to accept the tragedy, Helen is unable to do that. It's not denial, Helen is certain; it's that things aren't adding up right.
Nor are things going well at her new temporary job. She still isn't sure if she wants to be a librarian, but she's positive that her job as cashier at her cousin-in-law's garden center won't turn into a career for her. And that conclusion has nothing to do with her obnoxious supervisor or her annoying coworkers.
Downtime at the garden center gives Helen too much time to think about the circusmstances of the woman's death. When no one will give credence to her theory, Helen decides to take matters into her own hands.
