    Sheriff Cas Larkin has his hands full running for office again when two homicides, more than 100 years apart, surface. Cas believes the two deaths are connected and his wife, Connie, an amateur local historian and ever the romantic, wants in on the action. While Cas investigates the fresh murder, Connie digs into Maryvale's founding family's records kept in the Library's basement and encounters a classic haunting requiring more than a séance to unravel. As the pair chase hot clues and follow cold trails, the truth behind two murders and a 100-year old love triangle hangs in the balance.

Luckily, Sheriff Cas Larkin is on the case. But when Cas visits the secluded cabin Mattie rented to finish her next book, he finds her nearly dead.
