After the last Westbrook Department Store Christmas party, Pippa McNabb’s cheating husband was murdered wearing a Santa suit. A new year, a new Christmas party, a new dead Santa – this time, after having a bad reaction to an appetizer Pippa gives him, he lurches from the store out onto the street only to be run down by eight tiny reindeer. Pippa is suspect, but so is naturalist Sky Thornton, who was driving the sleigh. Sky seems intent on helping Pippa, but he also seems to know too much about her. Is he really trying to clear her name, or is he trying to frame her?
