During an autumn scenic drive in rural Crozet, Virginia, Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen and husband Fair discover the body of a murdered accountant lying in a cornfield. Rooting out the guilty murderer in the treacherous center of a lucrative conspiracy requires Harry's farmer's wisdom-- along with the quick wits and extraordinary senses of Sneaky Pie, Pewter, and Tucker.
"Autumn has descended on Crozet, Virginia, ideal conditions for a scenic drive for Harry and husband Fair. Harry's nose for trouble leads her straight to a cornfield's macabre scarecrow--an all too real murder victim that frightens all but the noisy crows. This accountant's gruesome death is only the first of many disturbing events in this normally pastoral corner of the world. While Harry tends her beloved grapes and sunflowers, a killer edges closer--as does Harry's protective menagerie of animals. Halloween's approach brings with it bona fide terror and a beloved local tradition that threatens to become fatal."-- Back cover.

Getting tired of the main character in this series, so smug and entitled. Also too much political commentary crammed in. I do like the animals, but would also like less of the weight-related comments.
