Hayley Powell, food and cocktails columnist for Bar Harbor's Island Times, is...well, kind of broke.
So when she's selected for that extreme coupon-clipping reality game show coming to town she's thrilled, especially when her competition is nasty nurse Candace Culpepper.
But when Haley stumbles across a face - down-in-the-snow Candace-scissors gleaming between her shoulders - she knows the next thing she'll be selected for will probably be a police line-up.
Meanwhile, though Hayley's BFF Mona was only joking about "taking Candace out," Bruce Linney, the Island Times crime reporter, definitely isn't laughing. And what about the smarmy, cold-hearted host of the show, Drew Nickerson, who may have been having a steamy affair with the intentionally-iced nurse?
Hayley needs to cut to the chase and find the killer.
Everything may hinge on a stray coupon, but Hayley better keep her eyes on the real grand prize: staying out of permanent cold storage!
