A reputation as a small town busybody sleuth. A gum-cracking boss who keeps calling her 'babe.' Now a suicidal phone stalker?

Great. After solving the messy mystery of her neighbourhood handyman's lye-induced death, thirty-something Sophie Mae Reynolds makes preserves by day and answers phones at a crisis centre by night.

What better way to keep a low profile? But on her very first night, Sophie Mae gets a call from a man who is threatening suicide...and her.

Overhearing the caller's irate outbursts, her morally bankrupt boss Philip Heaven severs the line.

As harassing calls to her home increase, Philip comes down with a deadly case of food poisoning. And his eerie last words keep ringing in Sophie Mae's ears: 'Threat.

Meant it.' Now stirring up the town with talk of murder-by-preserves, Sophie Mae and her hunky boyfriend Detective Barr are on a blood-red trail of rancid beets to find and stop the crafty killer.
