Late summer casts its golden hue over Buttercup, Texas, but for farmer Lucy Resnick, tranquility is shattered when she wakes up to a shocking discovery -- her beloved flock of chickens has fallen prey to a mysterious chickennapping. As Lucy searches frantically for her feathered friends, her life takes an even darker turn when she stumbles upon the lifeless body of her renter, Jo Nesbit, in her historic rental cottage.

Lucy delves into the Jo's life, and soon uncovers a tangled web of connections between the deceased woman and the townspeople of Buttercup... connections that reach back decades. It quickly becomes clear that Jo was entangled in a complex web of secrets, some of which may be linked to an unsolved murder from years past. But Lucy's relentless pursuit of the truth doesn't sit well with someone who would prefer the past stay buried.

As Lucy inches closer to the heart of the mystery, threats escalate, and she realizes that the killer is willing to stop at nothing to keep their dark secrets from coming to light. Will Lucy untangle the web of lies and deceit to solve the murder and expose the secrets that haunt Buttercup?
