It's a case that cuts just a little too close to home for Margaret and her loved ones in the latest crime to hit their not-so-quiet town!
Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and everyone is busy making preparations to celebrate while juggling work and chores. Margaret and her son Zach talk about extending their family and getting a puppy. While opening her store, she hears Maria Luis screaming and pointing down the alley. There, Margaret beholds the grumpy dog-groomer, Mr. Stewart, lying dead in the dirt.
Detective David Graham is at the forefront of the investigation, and he warns her to stay away from the case. It doesn’t wash well with Margaret, who fiercely protests his concerns until he has little choice but to let her help him hunt down leads.
Mr. Stewart was a man who’d been all bark – but Margaret witnessed his secret kindness towards others despite his attitude. He had his heart in the right place, and now it was cold in a morgue; the thought fuels a fire inside her to catch his killer and bring the person to justice. Margaret and David’s complicated relationship as they interview residents and business owners who’d butted heads with Mr. Stewart to make sure the grump can rest in peace. If they let their guard down, the consequences could be devastating.
