Trouble is brewing in the Cornish village of Nanviscoe, and this time it might be too much even for kindly widow Dorrie Resterick to solve . . .
Dorrie Resterick has enough to worry about without the arrival of Stella Grey and her family in the village - she's already planning a surprise welcome home party for her honeymooning niece, Verity, and her new husband Jack, as well as trying to convince the locals that the ghost of Jack's disturbed first wife, Lucinda, is not haunting their marital home. But it soon transpires that the ghost may be realer than Dorrie first imagined, as something - or someone - seems determined to cause trouble . . .
