Welcome to Leavensport, OH, where DEATH takes a DELICIOUS turn!
"NO! He’s not the father. You're all wrong! The father is . . .”
Everyone at the festival stood with their mouths hanging open as Lydia, who went into labor on Labor Day, revealed the identity of the baby’s father.
Autumn is beautiful in Leavensport, Ohio, with the colorful leaves and that crisp bit of coolness that dissipates the humid air that blankets the village each summer—but there is a dark cloud when a merchant from Tri-City is killed at the Leavensport Fall Festival.
Suburbanites clash with villagers, an MS flare-up puts Detective Meiser in a wheelchair, two couples announce their engagement, and someone is poisoned! This Labor Day weekend will do more than honor the laborers of Leavensport and Tri-City—it will pit them against one another to find a killer.
