***NEWS FLASH***

The murder of a beloved local doctor breaks the three-year crime-free small Kentucky town! With little evidence to go on, the Sheriff Kenni Lowry and residence are on high-alert in the town of Cottonwood, Kentucky. If you
noticed any unusual activity on Poplar Holler Road, please call the local 
dispatch!

Sheriff Kenni Lowry likes to think the zero crime rate in Cottonwood, Kentucky is due to her being sheriff, but she quickly discovers the ghost of her grandfather, the town's previous sheriff, has been scaring off
any would-be criminals since she was elected. When the town's most beloved doctor is found murdered on the very same day as a jewelry store robbery, and a mysterious symbol ties the crime scenes together, Kenni must satisfy her hankerin' for justice by nabbing the culprits.

With the help of her Poppa, a lone deputy, and an annoyingly cute, too-big-for-his-britches State Reserve officer, Kenni must sove both cases and prove to the whole town, and herself, that she's worth her salt before time runs out.
