Adelle Powers, or Dell as she is known around the town of Lakeshore, is living her dream life. She and her best friend Rosie Ryan are owners of the wonderfully quirky Pine Lake Inn, a very popular Australian tourist destination. Running her own inn is the only thing she has ever wanted to do and it is her pride and joy.
So when Dell’s friend Jessica calls to say she’s coming for a visit Dell is ecstatic and can’t wait to show it off to her friend. Surprisingly Dell finds that Rosie is less than thrilled about the visit and can’t understand why. They were all such good friends, or so she thought.
It would seem that Rosie may know something about Jessica’s past that Dell doesn’t. Some sort of secret that Rosie is reluctant to share with her. When Jessica is found dead in her room the following day it would appear that her secret past may have finally caught up with her.
Horrified by the death of her good friend in her very own inn, Dell soon gets drawn into the mystery. And things take a turn for the very weird when Jessica’s ghost visits her, more than once, directing Dell to clues that have been overlooked by a very incompetent police investigation.
Soon Dell finds her own life in peril as she gets further into the mystery surrounding her friends life, and death.
