Football, college politics and a women’s rodeo combine in this mystery. ER nurse Caroline gets caught in the middle when her football-playing son gets in a fistfight with his team mate and town badboy, who is later found dead. Caroline attempts to clear her son’s name, but he’s not cooperating.
This is another great new cozy series, featuring a multiple of murders during the Halloween season. Great drama and plenty of intrigue.
