Suze is finally adjusting to life in California with her new step-family. She’s even developed a friendship with Jesse, the ghost haunting her room, although Suze suspects her feelings for him may be a little more than friendship. But another ghost has taken to haunting Suze’s room recently. This ghost is desperate to get a message to Red, but before Suze can ask the ghost anything else she vanishes. Assuming the ghost means Red Beaumont--a wealthy business man with an extremely attractive son, Tad--Suze sets out to deliver the ghost’s message. Suze quickly discovers that something is not right in the Beaumont household. To make matters worse, the ghost reappears to tell her she has the wrong Red. Suze tells Tad about the suspicious behavior of his father the family business. Her confessions puts both her and Tad in danger as Tad’s uncle will stop at nothing to keep the business thriving. With a little help from the paranormal, Suze saves herself and Tad before finding the right Red and delivering the ghost’s final message.
