As always, it is a pleasure to return to Tinker's Cover and catch up with Lucy Stone once again.

Christmas is fast approaching and Lucy finds herself offering to host an annual Christmas cookie exchange to keep the tradition alive. The cookie exchange just serves to emphasize the friction between the women at the exchange. Lucy is doing her best to keep peace among the group, especially when Tucker Whitney, a new young coworker of Lucy's friend Sue at the childcare center shows up to the exchange. Lee Cummings accuses Tucker of being a homewrecker and destroying her marriage to her husband. The grand finale of the exchange occurs when a water leak upstairs causes Lucy's ceiling to collapse on the table of cookies for the exchange, and Lucy is humiliated.

Soon Tucker is found strangled, and suspects abide. Much of the town seems to think Lee's husband, Steven Cummings is responsible for the murder, but after having met Steve, Lucy has her doubts and feels compelled to investigate the murder.

Meanwhile, Lucy catches her high school son, Toby, smoking pot and hears that the high school is teeming with drugs. It seems unthinkable to Lucy that there is such a drug problem in Tinker's Cove.

Lucy is up to her head, trying to catch Tucker's murderer, keep Toby in line and filling out his college applications, and finish her Christmas shopping and baking. Can Lucy find the real killer and survive the holiday in one piece?
