It's a dream come true for historic preservationist Ashley
Wilkes: her restored Victorian house is on the Olde
Wilmington by Candlelight tour. But her dream quickly turns
nightmarish when a docent is murdered in the library, and her
friend, history professor Binkie Higgins is the likely suspect.
As the bodies drop faster than dead needles off a dry Christmas
tree, Ashley's as busy as Santa's elves: proving Binkie's
innocence, rescuing sister Melanie and a historic property from
a ruthless developer. And, la-di-da, solving the Atlantic Coast
Line's 40 year old payroll robbery.
