It’s Christmas time in Caerphilly and Meg Langslow has her hands full. She has family staying at the house, Michael is getting ready for his one man show and Meg is in charge of the Helping Hands for the Holidays project, helping neighbors that need it the most. One of the projects is Harvey the Hoarder, who has so much stuff in his run down house. Meg gets him to agree to let them clean out the house and put stuff in storage that he can go through, so they can fix up things in the house.
Harvey’s family has a long history in the town and he has family that wants the house believing there’s hidden treasure there. And sure enough one morning Harvey is found dead and a list of suspects is formed. The police begin their investigation and Meg is right along to assist like she usually does.
