Jane Jeffry's struggle to put together a Christmas party for her caroling group is further complicated by the arrival of an unscrupulous local reporter in a Santa Claus costume who promptly ends up dead

Blackwell North Amer
'Tis the season to be jolly, and Jane Jeffry is racing to finish her cookie baking, fruit-compoting, house-cleaning, and shopping madness before the arrival of her teenage kids and no less than two moms - her late husband's and the disapproving mater of her significant other, Det. Mel VanDyne.
What Jane is definitely not ready for is the arrival of Santa Claus, who turns out to be a muckraking TV "action reporter" in a red suit - complete with camera crew. This nasty Ol' St. Nick can be counted on to wrap a happy holiday happening into a package marked "scandal," but before he has a chance to color the caroling event with his own sleazy brand of yellow journalism, his red-suited body slides off the neighbor's roof to land, silenced forever, on the horns of a plastic reindeer.
It looks like Santa's mishap is no accident and, with the help of her friend Shelley, Jane goes looking for the Grinch who thought murder was a way to save Christmas.
