67. A Rather Lovely Inheritance

By C. A. Belmont
Rated 4 Stars
From: Library

I was in need of a light and easy read and this book was just the thing. Light, fun, and fluffy. The plot doesn't take too much scrutiny but if you can suspend your disbelief and just go along for the ride it is a pleasant way to spend a day.

FROM AMAZON: Penny Nichols, finds herself an heiress after her great aunt Penelope dies. Penny flies to London for the reading of Penelope's will and is met by her dashing cousin Jeremy, a barrister. Jeremy receives Penelope's luxurious French villa, while Penny is given her London flat and the contents of the villa's garage. Although their feckless cousin Rollo is well provided for, too, he is envious of his cousins' inheritances and drops a bombshell: Jeremy might not be a blood relation. The revelation sends Jeremy into a depressive funk, causing him to withdraw from Penny, who becomes determined to discover the truth. As she starts to dig into the family's history, the mystery takes her back several generations, and she realizes the connections among them all are more complex than she ever could have imagined. An entertaining yarn with family drama and intrigue aplenty
