During the frenzy of the December holidays, salon owner Marla Vail finds herself in deep trouble when a client dies at her day spa after a facial treatment gone wrong.

Amidst the twinkling lights and festive cheer, Marla dives headfirst into the glittering world of high society.

With the body count rising and murder overshadowing hot stone massages, she gives her investigation the full spa treatment.
