Meg Langslow must solve a murder at a state fair and rescue a kidnapped prize chicken in the next in Donna Andrews's award-winning, "New York Times" bestselling series Meg Langslow is helping Mayor Randall Shiffley organize the Virginia Un-Fair, Caerphilly's entry in the race to replace the old state fair (which has gone bankrupt). While patrolling the fairgrounds, Meg runs into her friend Molly, who has been building a successful business making artisan cheeses. Molly is terrified that she may lose her farm because her idle husband has left her for a rich hobby winemaker and is demanding his half of the land. Meg enlists Mother's help to find Molly a divorce lawyer, which Mother is all the more willing to do because the unfaithful husband's new girlfriend is the bete noire of the wine pavilion (Mother's kingdom while the fair lasts), due to her execrable wines, hideous labels, and aggressively bad behavior. She is so universally disliked that Meg begins to worry about her safety. But it's Brett (the unfaithful husband) whose murdered body she and Michael find that night--and Molly who is swiftly accused as his killer. Meg is convinced that her friend wouldn't so much as harm a fly, but can she find the real killer before it's too late? Will she be able to sort the truth from the winemaker's accusations? And will she ever track down the stolen bantam rooster that went missing on the first night of the fair?
