One day, he discovers a postcard stuck between the pages of a book that belonged to his fiancée. Addressed to her, it bears the cryptic message, "Ours again, at last. See you there". The front of the card is a photograph of a house. Feeling that this might be the clue that could help him understand what drove her to suicide, he seeks out the house and buys it. He soon learns that the house is haunted by a headstrong and feisty ghost, Ann Stuart, whom he is forced to tangle with if he's ever to solve the mystery. Ann died under circumstances similar to his late fiancée, and he has a hunch that there is a connection between the two.
In the midst of his investigation, he's presented with a bit of a public-relations problem. Nightingale Augusta Smith is a journalist who writes for the paper in the small town where Jace has bought the house. She writes a slanderous article about him and refuses to print a retraction until he agrees to let her help him in his dealings with Ann Stuart.

Old House Lover
The idea of this story is not bad; I just get really tired of the idea that all the English think Americans are uncouth idiots. The narrator of the story sounds like a little girl when portraying some of the female characters. I think I would have enjoyed it more in book form.
