Granny leads a secret life in the small, unique community of Fuschia, Minnesota. It's not just her all junk food diet, multiplying pets, or her shocking bedtime attire that makes Granny one in a million. No, Granny is an undercover cop, charged by "the Big Guy" (the town's police chief) with preventing theft in local stores. Granny takes her job seriously and daily foils many shoplifters using her trusty spiked umbrella and amazing acting skills.

Granny has a new addition to her arsenal of crime fighting weapons as Fuchsia, Minnesota's most colorful detective. Now, along with her famous crook-hooking umbrella, she's acquired a scoundrel-skewering knitting needle. And just in time! Residents of Fuchsia seem to be dropping dead like flies! First, it's Granny's neighbor Sally (who gives up the ghost in her weed-filled front yard), followed by Esmeralda Periwinkle (the squirrel lover on Main Street).
Granny may be retired as Fuchsia, Minnesota's one-woman undercover sleuth for the Fuchsia Police Department, but that doesn't mean she still doesn't need a trusty weapon. Her weapon of choice? A pink snow shovel. When Granny runs over a dead body with her snowmobile, she unwittingly sets off a chain of events that involves mislabeled corpses, empty graves, and stolen money - lots of it! Who's at the bottom of this years-old crime?
A trip to her old farm ends in Granny forking a dead body in her silo. When the body turns out to be Granny's long lost love Robert Blackford, Granny is flabbergasted. When her devious twin sister, Amelia, the very person who stole Robert from Granny many years ago, shows up searching for her long lost son, Granny reluctantly agrees to help her find him. Of course, Granny's fiancé, Franklin Gatsby, is concerned for Granny's welfare and doesn't like it when she goes out sleuthing - one of Granny's favorite activities.
