The Cold War gets cozy in this retro-cozy spy caper set in 1967, a year of music, miniskirts—and murder! Actress Noelle McNabb works at the Country Christmas Family Fun Park in Yuletide, Indiana, but she longs for the bright lights of Hollywood.
Real-life drama comes her way when a stranger with a fatal gunshot wound stumbles across her doorstep. When she attempts to finds the man’s murderer, Noelle encounters a super-secret spy agency, SIAMESE (Special Intelligence Apparatus for Midwest Enemy Surveillance and Espionage). SIAMESE recruits Noelle on a quest to find missing microdots under the guidance of a street-wise agent, Destiny King. As Noelle goes undercover in a cheesy nightclub and faces the enemy in late-night chases, she uncovers family secrets and finds her moral values put to the test. Along with her pet cat, Ceebee, and the kooky residents of Yuletide, Noelle discovers it takes a village to catch a killer.

 Is it a spy thriller or small town murder cover-up to protect the tourism trade?
Murder just doesn't happen in a place dedicated to Christmas and Santa's village.
Noelle is a small town girl with big time actress dreams. Does she have more talent than playing a green faced witch?
Filled with details of the 1960s cold war era, is there really a secret agency called SIAMESE, along with some very funky feline references. 
When a stranger drops nearly dead in Noelle's living room and disappears from the hospital to which he is rushed, she can't leave this mystery alone.
Full of Get Smart gadgets, a mysterious Man From Uncle investigations coordinator, a touch of Mod Squad and some seemingly other worldly information, this secret agent adventure is far out.
