Leaving New York's world of haute couture and a bitter divorce in her rear-view mirror, Carissa Yates claims an unexpected inheritance, a lighthouse in Maine, after her aunt dies in a freak accident. Carissa soon learns that a copyright dispute and a vengeful and manipulative ex-husband aren't the only problems she has to deal with in her new life at Treacher's Cove. The local realtor is pushing her to sell the lighthouse to a developer, her aunt's death is looking less and less like an accident, and the villagers are hiding their own dark secrets. Someone starts playing scary pranks on Carissa, her ex moves to the Cove, and two local men want relationships with her for very different reasons. Carissa's in for a very bumpy ride, especially when she draws the attention of a psychotic killer with a grudge.
