Her friend Molly is accused of the unthinkable and her daughter just adds to the issues at hand. There is the case of the mysterious digging. Amidst all this Lucy and Tobias’s romance may not be going the way she wants, her goats may be harder to handle than she wants and her truck is making abnormal noises and last but not the least, the town may be in more danger than anyone guesses. With her grandmother’s spirit continuing to aid her, family and friends come together to make sure the town has a Merry Christmas after all.
