    Popular American romantic comedy actress Tracy Collins is taking quite a risk filming Jealousy, a Regency era psychological drama. Tracy is on location at the prestigious SILVERBRIDGE estate though she stays in a hotel in the nearby town. Tracy befriends shy anorexic Meg Oliver, younger sister of the owner of SILVERBRIDGE, Harry who reluctantly rents his place due to the exorbitant expense to keep his heritage proper.

    A fire destroys the hotel so Meg offers rooms in SILVERBRIDGE to Tracy and her costar, Shakespearean actor Jon Melbourne. When Tracy meets Harry, she finds him attractive, but abhors his boorish behavior. As she stays in his residence, Tracy suffers feelings of déjà vu and visions of ghosts. On top of her strange reactions, someone tries to destroy the movie and only Harry can keep her safe, but who will protect Tracy's heart from her beloved aristocrat?

    SILVERBRIDGE is an exciting contemporary romance with paranormal and suspense elements. The three prime subplots are well written and actually tie together in a cohesive manner. At the same, the triad plus two lesser subplots never allow any key theme to take charge of the tale as if Joan Wolf could not decide between suspense (movie sabotage), paranormal (ghosts), or a contemporary romance. Still the lead couple is a delightful duo and the tale will satisfy most of the audience.
