It's December in Copper Bluff, and Professor Emmeline Prather is anticipating the university-sponsored holiday concert. Em can't think of a better way to kick start the season, but before she can say "Jingle Bell Rock," a band member dies unexpectedly, and suspicion falls on Em. It will take a Christmas miracle to solve this case, but if there's one thing in surplus this time of year, it's faith.
