Unfortunately, the best-laid plans are going to the ghosts! The Earl of Maitland arrives—pursued by a headless horseman! Felicity’s other boarders turn out to be a pair of eccentric spinsters and a psychic. Strange noises are oversetting all the guests and someone is digging up the garden every night! Something very odd is happening at Rhoades Arbor and it may lead a beautiful landlady and a captivated earl into the shadowy unknown when a buried secret reveals the most thrilling mystery of all…love!
