David Kristich, son-in-law of Louisa Daniel, discovers he owns a dilapidated warehouse courtesy of the will of his natural father with whom David had minimal contact. When checking out the warehouse, David, wife Emily and Louisa discover human bones. Not only does the family find bones, they also find a park behind the warehouse which adds to the intrigue of the building. In addition to the problem of an empty building, David also inherits a group of preservationists who wish to keep the historic atmosphere of Pleasant Creek intact. A second group of money-hungry land developers wants to profit from the sale of the land. A third faction wants control of the building to keep the bones a secret.

These groups pester many aspects of David's life-his office and business operations and his activities with his family at swim meets, picnics and investigating his new acquisition. Before David can dispose of his 'gift' from his father, he must first solve the mystery of the building. Louisa and Emily use their resources to help solve a romantic legend surrounding the bones and the mystery of how those bones became a part of the building.
