A town wide picnic is all fun, food, & games—until Kate stumbles on another body…

The annual Hazelton, Vermont Labor Day Picnic is something all the residents look forward to each year. Kate has spent the past week organizing everything to help her family and neighbors enjoy a relaxing community event. As a relatively new family to the area, the McKenzies look forward to beginning this tradition.
