The Hen of the BaskervillesOnce again, Donna Andrews has come up with a very enjoyable Meg Langdorf mystery, Hen of the Baskervilles

Meg, who is married and a mother of twins, works as a blacksmith, and amateur sleuth in the little town of Caerphilly, Virginia. In this story, she is in charge of a local agricultural fair.

This isn't just a typical county fair -- rare breed chickens are stolen from a couple named Bonneville. Other problems crop up at the fair too; including murder.
