Full synopsis

With no mobile phone reception and the castle threatening to become a burden around her neck, Dani has no choice but to restore it to a thriving family business.

Can she get the better of sceptical locals, isolated conditions and meddlesome ghosts to restore the castle's fortunes? And could she have found her romantic soulmate in the gorgeous but ghostly form of Gabriel? Dani's convinced he would make perfect boyfriend material - if only he hadn't died 250 years ago!
