Melanie Trenholm should be anticipating Christmas with nothing but joy - after all, it’s the first Christmas she and her husband, Jack, will celebrate with their twin babies.
But the ongoing excavation of the centuries-old cistern in the garden of her historic Tradd Street home has been a huge millstone, both financially and aesthetically. Local students are thrilled by the possibility of unearthing more Colonial-era artefacts at the cistern, but Melanie is concerned by the ghosts connected to the cistern that have suddenly invaded her life and her house - and at least one of them is definitely not filled with holiday cheer… And these relics aren’t the only precious artefacts for which people are searching.
A past adversary is convinced that there is a long-lost Revolutionary War treasure buried somewhere on the property that Melanie inherited - untold riches rumoured to be brought over from France by the Marquis de Lafayette himself and intended to help the Colonial war effort. It’s a treasure literally fit for a king, and there have been whispers throughout history that many have already killed - and died - for it. And now someone will stop at nothing to possess it - even if it means destroying everything Melanie holds dear.
