When real estate agent Benny Dempsey stumbles across Beckford Manor just outside Salem, MA, he immediately sees a financial investment worth millions. This large Victorian mansion that has been unoccupied since the 1970s would be an ideal haunted attraction for ghost hunters that flock to Salem in search of a macabre experience. Benny convinces his half-brother, Henry Valentine, and his wife Elizabeth to buy the home and run it as a haunted bed and breakfast. Unfortunately, the only ghost residing inside Beckford Manor is of a lonely librarian named Wilbur Nash and he wants nothing to do with the plan to promote him as a morbid curiosity. Elizabeth is the only person who can see Wilbur and the two become immediate friends. So when Benny decides to tear the house down and sell off the land, Elizabeth has to scrabble to save Wilbur from an uncertain fate. This funny and sweet story is an uncommon romantic comedy in the vein of Harvey.
