Erin Murphy's wedding is getting closer and so is Christmas. While the town decorated the storefronts in Jewel Bay, MT, she and her fiance, Andy, discover they have the wrong lights for their building. She takes them to the correct store to come upon her former kindergarten teacher screaming at her oldest daughter. Erin brings Merrily back to the Merc with her and they become friends. But she is found dead the Monday after the fight on her parent's property and is being accused of stealing from the company that had hired her, a former boyfriend.
Erin receives a phone call from the owner of the hardware store, where Merrily had been employed, he asks for her help, but then starts pushing her away. This doesn't stop her and the new deputy from Florida doesn't seem to be interested to hear what she knows and she is more determined to find out who had murdered Merrily.
This was a really good story for me. It is holiday themed, Christmas, and took care of another state that I hadn't finished on the reading challenge I am working on (all 50 states). I listened to this story more than reading it, getting an ebook version was difficult and I was driving a lot Thursday and Friday.
