Easy reading mystery set in a "small rural town in Canada". First book for the author and first of a series. Polly Deacon is a puppet-maker and helps out her aunt's friend, George, with his goats in exchange for living in a small primitive cabin on his property. When George and Polly go to the local dump to dispose of one of his goats that has died, they discover the body of well-known wife abuser, John Travers. Small town secrets and unusual characters follow with a little romance thrown in.
