It's been three years since his fiancée's mysterious suicide, and Jace Montgomery still hungers for answers. Stacy was kind, funny, and in love -- why, on a trip to England, would she end her life in a room above a village pub? Then Jace stumbles upon a photo of a rambling estate tucked inside one of Stacy's books -- and a cryptic note dated one day before her death: "Ours again. Together forever. See you there...." Drawing on his family's vast wealth, Jace returns to England to purchase the unsightly Priory House -- and soon discovers it is haunted by the headstrong ghost of Ann Stuart. Unraveling the ties between past and present with the help of a beautiful local journalist, Jace must at last reconcile his heartwrenching loss and his own hopeful future.
