Jane wants to leave her social obligations behind and find a summer passion. They’ve brought their precocious 11-year-old granddaughter Maggie. A Nancy Drew wannabe, Maggie believes that in a creaky old cabin with a cranky grandmother she must uncover and solve a mystery to make her vacation complete. The Hamilton’s capable maid Alma has come to manage Maggie, a task that will take her places she never dreamed she could or ought to go.
