Book Atlanta provided this synopsis of Moonrise:

A new wife arrives at Moonrise, a forbidding old Victorian house in an eerily beautiful setting (complete with a neglected noctural garden), hoping to be embraced by the family and friends of her new husband, a charismatic journalist whose previous wife died under mysterious circumstances. Instead, she finds herself rejected and reviled, unable to forge an identity apart from the lingering presence of her predecessor. No matter how hard she tries to gain acceptance from her husband's daughter and his circle of friends, something -- or someone -- is determined to drive her away. Her arrival unexpectedly sets forces in motion, ultimately leading to the uncovering of long-hidden desires and the tragic consequences of betrayal. She soon wonders if she can trust anyone, even the man she loves.
