Daphne Coleman's life is not going at all as planned, and it just got worse. Here she is, back after college, working full time now at her old summer job as kennel manager at Riverside Lodge and Kennel. So much for her hard-earned degree in Greek and Roman mythology! To make matters worse, the lodge is now owned by a former classmate and the homecoming queen, Cassandra Weatherstone, who's dating the love of Daphne's life while running the place into the ground with her outlandish ideas.

Is the Riverside Lodge and Kennel cursed? Daphne Coleman, an expert in Greek and Roman mythology and a first-class skeptic, thinks it's just a charade. But when a publicity stunt turns deadly at the Riverside Lodge and Kennel, everyone is getting the heebie-jeebies. And, once again, all are suspects in a murder. To drum up business for the still faltering Lodge, new owner Jason Henning (and Daphne's long-time crush) has brought in a ghost hunting team to investigate the "haunted" areas of the building.
Daphne Coleman, with her little Lab cross Naiad, is determined to prove her dog's worth in the Enterprise dog show and agility contest, which now allows mixed breeds to participate, thanks to the advocacy of dog show judge Sinopa Folds. Then murder strikes. The top contender, a beautiful Irish setter, is found dead of poison. Daphne is irate. Who would kill a dog? But before Daphne can find out, murder strikes again, and this time it's Judge Sinopa Folds.
Daphne Coleman is in the dumps. The grand reopening of the Riverside Lodge and Kennel restaurant is a grand success, but Daphne can't get her eyes off the table where her life-long crush, Jason Henning, is drooling over his date, the obnoxious and gorgeous local reporter Helen Meeks. Go figure some guys. And here she is, stuck with the chronic bickering of Elissa and her boyfriend Manny plus her mother's all-seeing, all-knowing eyes on her.
