Judith"s worst nightmare comes true when Vivian Flynn, her husband"s first wife, moves two doors down from the Hillside Manor. She brings along her new husband, former minor league baseball player Billy "Blunder" Buss, who is many years her junior. But as the B&B business is going well and Vivian isn"t causing any problems for the Flynns, Judith adjusts to the situation. The idyll soon comes apart when Vivian, now mysteriously wealthy, announces her plans to extensively add on to the small house and also purchase the corner property. Residents are up in arms and vow to fight the project to the death.
But Vivian"s past catches up with her when Frankie Buss comes to town. It seems that Bill and Frankie"s late father, Porter Winslow Buss, was married to Vivian for six months before he died at the age of 88. Vivian inherited most of his wealth and she also acquired Billy, who she promptly married after a brief period of mourning. Now Frankie is contesting the will and trying to cut a deal with Vivian and Billy. Naturally, Frankie and his wife check into Hillside Manor. And naturally, somebody gets killed...
