Publisher's Summary

After eight years in the American Furniture department at Christie's, 29-year-old Carolyn Everett is a rising star. But one wrong decision and a scandal leaves her unemployed and broken. Desperate to piece her life back together, Carolyn leaves New York City to work in a tiny antique store in Newport, Rhode Island. At a small county auction, she discovers a piece of Middle Eastern pottery, which she purchases for 20 dollars on a hunch. Curiosity sends her on a mission to find its original owner, and she eventually winds up in the town's United States Navy Base - and in a relationship with notorious womanizer Marine Sergeant Tyler Ford, who claims the relic came to him as a gift from his translator during the early days of the Iraq War. Tyler and Carolyn become obsessed with the mysterious relic - and each other - until the origin of the art comes under intense scrutiny and reveals a darker side of Tyler's past. Carolyn still feels like there's more to the story, but can she risk attaching herself to another scandal - and does she truly know the man she's fallen in love with?


What the Critics Say

"Lushly detailed and ambitious in scope, The Price of Inheritance is rich in romance, war stories, and betrayals. A priceless read by a writer of immense talent." (Amber Dermont, New York Times best-selling author of The Starboard Sea)

Entertaining light listening. I liked the setting in the world of high-end auction houses and the ultra-rich milieu of Newport. The romantic angle was a bit weak, though
