It has been too long since Macy Martin has returned to Beacon. The perfect little town tucked away in the mountains of New Hampshire is the place she has always called home and the place she never thought she would leave. That all changed three years ago though when her mother died and her life was changed forever.
The only way to deal with the loss was to get away from Beacon and from the memories. A move to Los Angeles was the answer and it didn’t matter who she hurt when she left, including Nick McCann, the man who had owned her heart and the man she hadn’t forgotten.
When Macy finally returns to Beacon to spend Christmas with her family, she finds the little town hasn’t changed. Its streets are still lined with holly and lights and the large evergreen in the town square is lit up just as it has been every Christmas for as long as she can remember.
While Dawn Luke travels to her hometown of Arkansas to tend to her sick mother, London Carter is called upon to investigate the murder of a young teenager whose body is found stuffed under the exit ramp of an overpass. It was apparent to London that the murderer wanted to make sure the kid was dead, but the motive for the killing was far from obvious.
Summoning the assistance of Detective Rachael Bowler, the two are finally able to locate the actual crime scene and that leads them to the identity of their young victim. But instead of providing answers, the identification leads to more questions. Could a secret involving the young man lead them to the killer, or will it only muddy the waters and interfere with their investigation?
