Publisher's Summary

Katie Price is baffled when a man claiming to be her grandfather leaves her his entire estate in the Scottish Highlands. The bulk of the estate consists of a thriving whisky distillery and a moldering castle, where the eccentric old man actually lived until his death. The will stipulates that Katie must travel to Scotland and claim her inheritance in person.  
As Katie’s stay extends from weeks into months, she uncovers the secret that led to her mother’s birth, and begins to unravel a 250-year-old mystery surrounding the beautiful young wife of the last laird of Clan McBride. According to local lore, Isobel McBride vanished from the castle without a trace shortly after the Battle of Culloden, and some believe that her ghost still walks the battlements at night. A strange dream in Isobel’s tower room leads Katie to Isobel’s hiding place, where she discovers love letters from a man other than Isobel’s husband, his initials being the only clue to his identity. 
As Katie begins to unearth the clues to Isobel’s fate, she embarks on a romantic journey of her own and finds a new life she never expected. 
Author's note: Due to several complaints, the book has been extensively re-edited as of July 20, 2013.

Scottish Love Story

Loved it! The story line & the narrator kept me intrigued the whole time. I couldn't wait to hear what happened next! Honestly, who wouldn't want to come to find out they inherited a castle in a foreign country & discover the story behind the people who once lived in the castle?!

Another Good Read!

What did you like most about The Inheritance?

I knew I would like this book, as I have read a few of this author's novels. However I had not read this one. I like to listen on audible to relax and found this a quite relaxing story. It kept me interested and wanting to know what was coming next. We often anticipate the ending to a story but for me it is not about the end, it is about how we get there!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked " The Inheritance " partly because it was set in Scotland a place I love. I did wonder how this inheritance would turn out, but very well in the end. The story was well thought out, with well drawn likeable characters. Sorry to say goodbye to them!

Have you listened to any of Charity Spencer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

This is the first performance of Charity Spencer I have listened too. it took a chapter or 2 to get with her reading, but she did it very well I thought.
