When a brawl breaks out at the local pub during the Thanksgiving gathering, a patron is critically wounded. Jayne thinks the suspect is one of the vigilantes who came to save the village from “that lady sheriff who doesn’t know her job.” Although, it could be someone from the growing group of villagers who aren’t happy with their sheriff’s performance. The one thing Jayne knows for sure is if she doesn’t get a handle on things, it could be time for her to turn in her badge.

Adding more fear to what should be a joyous time of year, strange packages start showing up around the village, each containing a clue as to how the receiver will die. Now, Jayne has to decide if she should focus on a murder that’s already happened or attempt to prevent six more.
