While on vacation in Scotland, Jessica McClain thinks she has found the perfect man in Nick Blanton, a handsome and charming artist. But just a few months into their marriage, Jessica begins to suspect that Nick is not at all whom he seems. For one, his wife, Anne, has died suddenly before he marries Jess, and Jess then finds out Anne is Nick's second wife. His first spouse, a well-known artist named Margot Wynant, also died under mysterious circumstances. Thankfully, she has help in the way of an old friend, Miller Pennington, who also loves Jess and is determined to watch out for her and the estate her parents left her. Now Jess must discover the truth about Nick before she becomes the third and late Mrs. Nick Blanton.
