I am looking for a book I read some time between 1995 and 2005. The details are a little fuzzy but it was a fiction book. A woman buys a house that used to belong to someone well known in that area (possibly she was a fan/scholar of his history?). The man who used to own it either died or disappeared mysteriously one night during a party at the house. I think it was near water and he was famous in some way. When she moves into the house, she finds he is still there either as a ghost or possibly due to time travel. She helps him to figure out what happened to him. Towards the end of the book, he returns to the night before his disappearance / death armed with the knowledge she helped him discover, maybe changing his history.
