Emily Beauregard applies for the position of innkeeper on Jonas Tallent's Devonshire estate he knows she isn't telling him everything. She is hunting a treasure her family hid many years ago to ensure the future of her family who are finally out of the clutches of an evil uncle (this one hits several cliches on the way down). Only when she enlists Jonas' aid does she start to understand the clues, while also making a success of the inn. Danger builds as they get closer to the answer to the problem and each other.
It's pretty predictable but entertaining.
