Andrea is bored with life. She quits her job to become a fake fiance of a rich man, Charles Carteret, whose sister is depressed. Andrea's job is to bring Regina back to social situations by including her in their activities. Charles' dynamic stepbrother Dan tries to woo Andrea away from Charles. When a couple people on the vacation island die, Andrea is not clear who is involved. Charles' secrecy makes her suspect him and still she rescues Charles when he seems in danger. The beach parties, horseback riding and afternoon tea with a grouchy widow are all a part of this intriguing mystery of who's doing the killing and who will die next at Seaview.
