It's Christmastime in sleepy, snowy Colorado, and Erin Gilbert and Steve Sullivan have a sweet holiday - and their new romance - to look forward to... The town, on the other hand, is up in arms! The beloved Goodwin Estate has been sold to enterprising out-of-towners and is getting a major makeover just in time for the holidays-putting interior designers Erin and Steve smack in the eye of the storm! The estate's new owners have a different idea of holiday decor than the rest of the community-one that includes inflatable elves, giant Santas, and some decidedly gaudy gingerbread facades... When Erin's blowhard ex-boyfriend shows up just in time to make Sullivan insane with jealousy, and a local building inspector is found strangled with a string of Christmas lights, Gilbert and Sullivan think that a Christmas getaway may be the safer plan... But when a bungling sheriff accuses Erin of murder and there's another ghastly killing, the only way out for Erin is to turn detective (she's done it before!). Her new project: design an answer to a mystery with too many clues...and far too many suspects!
