In the quiet Cotswold village of Finch, Lori Shepherd is in for a surprise. Her wealthy American father-in-law, William Willis, Sr., has purchased a splendid ten-acre estate to renovate. William Sr. is expecting gentle, small-town existence, but with countless women vying for his attention, shifty servants, and the discovery of a mysterious painting, he soon realises life in Finch is anything but.

When Lori and William become embroiled in a case of deception and false identity, things become even more complicated. It’s nothing Lori can’t handle – until moving furniture, strange sounds, and the theft of the painting prompt her to call on her Aunt Dimity’s otherworldly help. Can she succeed in uncovering the estate’s shadowy past?
