Summer Harvest Secrets
It’s June in Lancaster County, and farmers are harvesting their ear-ly summer crops. Martha Classen Watts and her sisters, Elizabeth and Mary, are excited to go strawberry picking and attend the annual Strawberry Festival at the Beiler farm. That is, until their friend Rachel Fischer tells them the Beilers’ crops have failed, and there are hints of sabotage. Who would destroy the strawberry fields and why? Martha dives into the mystery, determined to help her friend Willa Beiler and her family.
Meanwhile, with hot weather around the corner, Elizabeth is busy with a new venture—–making homemade ice cream to sell at Secondhand Blessings. With baskets of fresh strawberries and a treasured recipe in hand, Elizabeth makes a delicious first batch. The enterprise looks like it could be a success—–especially when Mary’s old friend and artist Pierre Lavigne comes to Bird-in-Hand and offers a helping hand.About Mysteries of Lancaster County
