Librarian Amy Webber leaves her university job to live with her aunt in a historic Virginia mountain town. She lands a new gig managing the charming public library, which has too little money and too many eccentric patrons. The last thing busy Amy needs is a charming new neighbor. Choreographer Richard Muir inherited the farmhouse next door--and its scandalous story--from his great-uncle. Town folklore claims the original owner was poisoned by his wife, who vanished after her 1925 murder trial. When Richard persuades Amy to help him clear the name of the woman his great-uncle loved, their research implicates the town's leading families ... even hers. Amy and Richard crack open the books to turn the page on the town's turbulent past
