Ten years ago Maralee Kowalski left her home of Salem, Massachusetts with the dream of becoming a star. After losing jobs as a weather girl and home-shopping network host, she is returning from Florida as the newly-named, thirty-three year-old widow Lee Barrett, to live with her Aunt Ibby and to apply for a position as a real television news reporter. While the position is already filled, the psychic host of Nightshades has just walked off the show; permanently, as Lee learns firsthand. Lee may not be a believer, but she has acting experience the program director is looking for in a replacement. Before she knows it, Lee has her foot in the door of WICH-TV and another new name, Crystal Moon.
