When Daniel Tripp arrived in the village with Heather for seasonal work, all sorts of shenanigans start. Bob is hired to investigate. What has happened to Mel's bike and who is sending blackmail letters? After Nettie finds a body in the village duck pond, many residents breath a sigh of relief, until Dan’s unconscious body was found near The Hidden Woods Hotel. The residents are becoming jumpy with good reason, as Inspector Dowling, in charge of the South Wairarapa investigation, arrives to a second death. The information gathered by Nettie, Mags and Bob helps the inspector with his inquiries, but have they gathered enough to solve the crime. It seems there are two bodies and more suspects than they can cope with. Bob has shared a tried and true favourite recipe, a popular treat with the Nettie's Knit shop knitters.
