Jill struggles with several challenges including 1) she is on the verge of a divorce from her husband, Grant 2) he hasn't forgiven her for miscarrying their baby, and 3) she has undertaken the expensive restoration of an old Victorian mansion, which she also suspects is haunted (books mysteriously appear and rocking chairs rock by themselves). When Jill's father in law, a local attorney in Blackberry Hill, suffers a heart attack and ends up in the hospital, Jill discovers that she will be seeing more of her estranged husband, who is back in town taking over his father's law practice. When an angry husband of one of Grant's clients decides to take revenge on the attorney who sent him to jail, and threatens Jill's safety, Grant and Jill find themselves together again.
