The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard

Rex, his brother Patrick, and their father Sheriff Shellenberger go out in the middle of the night during a blizzard to search their ranch for newborn calves so they won't freeze to death when they come across the body of a murdered teenage girl. The Sheriff, town doctor, and town judge, all close friends and their children, Rex, Mitch, and Abby all simultaneously hide and seek bits of truth about the unidentified murder victim.

This is the first Pickard book I have read and I really enjoyed it. It was a good mystery and I also enjoyed the small town Midwestern characters.
