Marti and Nick have inherited The Bully Pulpit Diner in Logland, Illinois, and their
first Christmas season is not off to a good start. When Marti heads to the laundromat
to retrieve clean linens, she finds the body of town grouch Louella Belle Simpson
cycling through the dryer.
Louella Belle has racked up a lot of ill will by constantly voicing her opinions on
Logland inhabitants' weight and food consumption. Chief Elizabeth Friedman has
few clues and little help from the alarmed Logland residents. When a second body
turns up in the senior citizen apartment parking lot, it seems the killer wants to
silence anyone who's a threat.
And then someone goes after Skelly, the medical examiner who likes to needle the
chief. As Elizabeth and the small Logland police force wade through suspects and
clues, they learn some poignant facts that serve as a reminder of why we need to
reach out to people who aren't easy to help.
Join the eclectic mix of Logland characters as they try to solve a murder and
