About The House Guests

In the wake of her husband’s fatal sailing accident, Cassie Costas's relationship with her teenage stepdaughter unravels.

But Savannah hates her new home, her school, and most of all her stepmom, whom she blames for her father’s death. Cassie, who is futilely searching for answers about the man she shared a life with, can't find a path back to Savannah's heart. Nor can she find a trace of the family's missing investments.
