Penelope Standing has a lot going on. Her dog walking business is booming, mail deliveries give her a great excuse to snoop, and her husband's retirement party is shaping up to be an interesting affair.
Then she finds Hippie Harold dead in his living room.
At first glance it looks like botulism might be the cause. Penelope knows better. Town crank Howard Stone, proprietor of Homespun Harold's All-Natural Emporium, had taught everyone how to safely can their fruits and vegetables for decades. Botulism? No way!
But was arguing about organic food and recycling enough to get him killed?
Penelope's need to track down the truth may send a killer after her!
