Jake Russell, the friendly police chief in town so small initially worries about mysterious outsider heiress Cassandra 'Cassie' Nightingale, who moved into the house held to be haunted by the 'grey lady', and opens a strange gift shop full with attributes of occultism, soon causing the rumor she's a wicked witch. After Cassie kindly helps his brave son Brandon (and his sissy sister Lori) with a dog, bully Kyle -abused by his own poor dad- and their own fears, Jake soon makes friends with her, even romantically interested. Yet the 'chief' is professionally obliged to handle a flood of complaints and harassment started by the mayor's haughty wife, her busy bodies-bunch, and teenage brats. Finally Derek Sanders, Jakes's only deputy, hits on Cassie's hidden background.
Not all witches are bad...
Did You Know?
When Cassie is telling Jake about her childhood, she makes reference to being sent to an orphanage "'back' in the U.S." Since Middleton is supposed to be somewhere in the United States, she should have said "'here' in the U.S." This seems like a mistake due to the fact it was filmed in Canada. This actually is not a mistake, as she was discussing her parent's death while traveling in Europe. Since during that time she was in Europe, it would make sense that she would say "back in US" since she was not in the US at the time. See more
