5 out of 5 stars (5 / 5)

Inside this gorgeous swan is an ugly duckling just waiting to get out.
Family. Can’t live with them, can’t let them be wrongly accused of murder. At least, that’s how it works for Ivy and the Galloway clan. Now her best friend, Jilly Blackwood, is in a similar bind.
Jilly hasn’t seen her grandmother since feathers flew in a family feud years ago. That suited Jilly just fine because her true family—the one she found in Clover Grove—is more than enough.
But when Gran calls from her retirement community asking for help, Jilly can’t say no. Someone has died under suspicious circumstances and neighbors are blaming either the vicious swan that just moved in … or Jilly’s grandmother. Gran may be quirky, but Jilly knows she’s not capable of murder.
It’s time for Ivy, Keats and Percy to join Jilly on the road trip of a lifetime. Will the crime-solving team make it back to Runaway Farm alive?
Join hobby farmer Ivy Galloway and her brilliant sheepdog, Keats, as they wrangle rescue animals and ruthless killers in this lighthearted cozy mystery series for animal lovers. If you enjoy a little magic with your mysteries, Ellen Riggs is also the author of the Mystic Mutt Mystery series.
