I believe I would have enjoyed it more if I had read previous books in the series but it does well as a stand alone.
The story begins on Groundhog's Day, February second, in Frog Ledge, a quirky small town, where if you were not born there, no number of years qualifies you to qualify as a true resident. Stan is a transplant of less than a year, but she is dating Jake, who has deep roots in the area.
Before the groundhog (Lilypad) even has a chance to poke her head out and make her prognostication, the town historian is missing. Her daughter, Sarah, with psychic powers feels something is terribly wrong.
Throw in a town full of characters that all have secrets, Stan's uptown Manhattan mother, who has an infatuation with Frog Ledge's mayor, who himself is none too popular, the cast of a popular tv ghost chasing show, and a side job for Stan as a reporter for the local newspaper, how will she ever find time to bake organic pet treats for the animal hospital open house and organize a canine wedding? Plus keep her man happy.
There are several mysteries and storylines going on that twist and turn into each other.
Enough to keep you guessing for days.
