Amidst the 2020 pandemic, Norah Sloane has been sheltering in place with her ex-boyfriend—the equivalent of three toddlers in a trench coat pretending to be an adult—who abruptly informs her he thinks she needs to move out. Coincidentally, her estranged father has just died and left his family's home to her, and in a fit of defiant frustration, she packs her bags—and her cats—and drives five hours north to the tiny village of Hope Falls to claim her inheritance.
Selling the big old house during a global pandemic is out of the question, but the bills are paid for a few months to give her time to get on her feet. It's the best solution, all things considered.
So what if it's haunted?
(Nothing bad happens to the cats.)
