Though he scoffs at the thought of ghosts at his Colonial era manor Melody House, Stoneyville, Virginia Sheriff Matt Stone agrees to allow a ghost hunter to look into the sightings. Sweetening the pot is that his friend Adam Harrison of Harrison Investigations will pay him for the honor. However, to his chagrin, Adam fails to show up, but instead his associate Darcy Tremayne arrives.
Matt displays animosity towards Darcy because she reminds him of his selfish former wife and he ridicules her so-called abilities. However, she quickly shakes everyone up when she finds the century plus old skull of a battered individual in the nearby forest. Soon through her connection to her deceased beloved teen pal Josh, she makes contact with an agitated spirit. She begins to worry over falling in love with the Sheriff, who may be a serial killer.
