Stella Hardesty, avenger of wronged women is getting cozy with Sheriff "Goat" Jones when the tornado that is blazing a path of distruction through town blows his scheming ex-wife, Brandy, through the front door. Adding to the chaos, the tornado destroys the snack shack at the demolition derby track, pulling up the concrete and unearthing a woman's body.

Years ago, Neb's wife asked Stella for help in getting him off oxycontin. Stella doesn't believe that the gentle man could kill any woman, and promises the frantic wife she'll look into it. Chrissy Shaw, now fully employed at Stella's sewing show, helps with snooping arund as Stella must negotiate the unpredictable Brandy and the alluring Sheriff.
