Baltimore-born Jen Pierce is starting to settle into her new job as a reporter at the Wimsy Voice, and her new life in small-town Wimsy, Maine. The town's busy enough to keep a reporter hopping, though violence is usually on the level of one neighbor punching another in the nose after they've both had too much beer. Then, in very short order, a handsome stranger moves to town, and a local preacher is murdered at the barn-raising for a newly settled Wiccan couple. Jen's bucolic life is about to get interesting.
