The entire town of Cranberry Cove is popping with excitement. Monica Albertson is baking cranberry goodies by the dozen, and shopkeepers are decking out their storefronts for the first annual Winter Walk - an event dreamed up by the mayor to bring visitors to the town during a normally dead time of year. But it's the mayor who turns up dead during the grand opening ceremony, his lifeless body making its entrance in a horse-drawn sleigh.
It's June in Cranberry Cove, and Monica Albertson's plan to sell cranberry relish to chain stores is taking off. The cranberry bogs are in bloom, and local beekeeper Rick Taylor and his assistant Lori Wenk are bringing in bees to pollinate the blossoms. When a fatal prick fells Lori, the buzz is that Rick is to blame. In trying to clear her friend's name, Monica discovers that more than a few people in Cranberry Cove have felt the power of Lori's venom.
