Overview
Despite Liz having to share her business with her ex-husband, she continues to keep a tight rein on things, so everything runs smoothly. That is until her great-grandfather, Alexander, passes away and leaves her his house in Scotland, with the stipulation that she must live in the house for 3 months before she can sell. Ghostly visits from Alexander and unexplained visions have her questioning her sanity while being drawn into a new love and joint quest to determine if Alexander's death was an accident. And if it was murder, is she next?
Description
Despite Liz having to share her business with her ex-husband, she continues to keep a tight rein on things, so everything runs smoothly. That is until her great-grandfather, Alexander, passes away and leaves her his house in Scotland, with the stipulation that she must live in the house for 3 months before she can sell. Panicked at the idea of being away from work for so long, Liz reluctantly stays in Scotland trying to find a way out of Alexander's requirements, only to find that he might have been murdered and is visiting her via ghostly dreams. Past life visions, a growing attraction to her great-grandfather's young research partner, and news from home that her ex is trying to take over her business, threaten the safe distance and control Liz has run her life by. Now she will have to learn to trust others and open her heart to solve what really happened to Alexander and save the man she was destined to love.
