Publisher's Summary

This is your life Penny Nichols....
Penny Nichols is a historical researcher working on a big-budget film in the south of France when she gets an urgent call. Her Aunt Penelope has just died, and Penny's presence is required in London for the reading of the will.
A rather lovely inheritance....
With only a slim recollection of her eccentric aunt, Penny is astonished to learn that not only is she the bona fide heiress - but she's also been invited to put her research skills to work. This time, the history she's researching happens to be her very own.
To the irresistible dare of a lifetime....
What she discovers about Aunt Penelope, a pair of wills, double lives, secret histories, and a family tree of 'vultures' is about to sweep Penny and a long-lost relative across France, over the hills of Italy, and through half of Europe on the adventure of several lifetimes. This is her life, her past, her chance at love - and Penny's going to live with the kind of passion she's always dreamed of!

A nice change of pace

This was a charming story about a young woman who becomes an heiress unexpectedly, and then events ensue where it all gets threatened as she has to figure out who is trying to steal it all away from her. It was very light-weight, and even though nothing much was a surprise, it was a lovely listen. I believe that the book itself was great enhanced by the wonderful narration of Katherine Kellgren, who also reads the delightful Royal Spyness series. This book was a nice treat if you are in the mood for something that is a bit of love, a little mystery and a good bit of fluff (I mean that in an endearing way). I found it a pleasant listen.

Any additional comments?

For those who like sex, sex, sex and foul language dripping for the pages, this book is not for you. For those who like mystery and subtle romance (thereby engaging the imagination), this book just might be for you! Plus, you will not be embarrassed if your children are around while you listen to this. A very important plus for me!
