There's trouble in Finch. Four recently sold cottages are standing empty, and the locals fear that a developer plans to turn their cosy village into an enclave of overpriced weekend homes.
But for once Lori Shepherd can't help. Her infant daughter, her father-in-law's upcoming wedding, and the crushing prospect of her fortieth birthday have left her feeling overwhelmed. Until, that is, she has a chance encounter with an eccentric inventor named Arthur Hargreaves. In the presence of Arthur, dubbed the Summer King by his equally eccentric family, Lori forgets her troubles - and Finch's.
But when Lori discovers detailed maps of Finch in the Summer King's library, she wonders if he could be too good to be true. Is Arthur secretly plotting Finch's demise? With Aunt Dimity's otherworldly help Lori mounts a crusade to save her beloved village from the Summer King's scorching greed.
