Patricia Amble or Tish for short likes to renovate old houses and has just moved into an old Victorian in Rawlings. But she also has a past that she wants no one to know about. So renovating old houses makes it possible to keep running. Two doors down is David Ramsey the commuter geek with the British accent and good looks that makes Trish?s heart swoon. Next door is police officer Brad Walters who is masculine and good looking too but being a police officer is the last person Trish wants around because Brad can find out her past with just the click of a mouse. Both David and Brad are vying for Trish?s attention but she?s afraid to get close to anyone and doesn?t plan to stay in Rawlings once the house is completed and sold.
But Rawlings is a strange little town with lots of secrets of its own. David?s wife has left town. Trish resembles Martin Dietz?s missing ex-fiancée Sandra Jones. Martin Dietz a man with an ax to grind against his ex-fiancée is the one man standing between her and the demolition of a cistern in her basement. The neighborhood watch of Dorothy Fitch across the street, the death of a teenager from arsenic poisoning. And the ghosts that never seem to stop haunting her. She?s been told her house is haunted and believes there is a body buried in the basement but it seems Brad the police officer doesn?t believe her.
Than Martin Dietz is found dead in her basement and she is arrested for murder. She wasn?t home at the time since she was out with David but Dorothy?s word is believed over her own as she says she saw her go into the house with Dietz. And there?s Dorothy?s son Jack just how much does he really know?
So it seems everyone is out to get her but why? Who really murdered Martin Dietz and who is buried in her basement? Is it Jan the wife of the former owner of the house or the missing Rebecca, David?s wife or someone else?
