Twenty-year-old Nellie Monroe has a restless brilliance that makes her a bit of an odd duck. She wants to be a private investigator, even though her tiny hometown offers no hope of clients. She gets her first big break when she meets Amos Shetler, but she has to don a bonnet and infiltrate the Amish in order to solve the case.
New Yorker Sadie Maddox is the toast of the classical music world—and a bit of a diva. But lately her CD sales are sagging, not to mention parts of her anatomy. Maybe it's time for a change. So when her agent suggests a professorship at a small liberal-arts college, Sadie decides to give it a go. All is well until Sadie realizes the college is in Iowa and she is being banished to a pig farm against her will.
