Lucy Prestipino, a free-spirited snowplow driver, blows her witness protection cover when she plows up a dead man.


Lucy Prestipino has a new life, a new job, and a new look. She also has a new name--Happy Holiday.
The U.S. Marshals Service is hiding her in a small town in the Allegheny Mountains of Western Maryland. Peter Etchers, a cantankerous deputy marshal, is protecting her from those who want her dead, but she misses her former life as a Baltimore bicycle messenger and all her old friends.
She doesn't miss Romero Sanchez, the notorious gang kingpin. She rues the day she accidentally crashed her bike into his car.
Happy is slowly adjusting. Her job plowing snow from dangerous mountain roads provides the thrills she craves. And Maryland State Trooper Jimmy Bittinger is now a friend. Life is getting better.
Until one snowy night she plows up a dead man.
The police and medical examiner determine the deceased, Bernie Singleton, died of accidental hypothermia caused by his intoxication. Happy attends Bernie’s funeral. Bernie’s widow, during a moment of profound grief, tells Happy that on the night her husband died, he called her to announce he had a wonderful “surprise.” The widow is haunted by the fact she never learned what it was. Happy offers to investigate the “surprise.”

The “surprise” investigation leads to the malicious destruction of Happy’s home, the loss of her budding romance with Jimmy Bittinger, the unearthing of Bernie’s dark secret, and the discovery of a missing one-million-dollar lottery ticket. Happy ends up trapped inside her snowplow with Bernie’s killer. She outwits the killer with her snowplowing skills. As she drives over a bridge, she intentionally maneuvers her plow’s blade into the bridge’s expansion joint. The principle of “inertia” causes the snowplow to stop suddenly and wreck, allowing her to escape and disable the killer with a tire iron.

As a result of the ensuing publicity, the U.S. Marshals Service moves Happy to Venice, Italy. She is learning how to become a gondolier. Jimmy finds her. They reconcile with a kiss under the Bridge of Sighs.
