    Picturesque, mysterious, incredibly captivating!

    Fatal Inheritance is an alluring, compelling tale predominantly set in the idyllic French Riviera during 1948 that takes you into the lives of the rich and glamourous Lesters. They are affluent. They are privileged. And like most families with money and power everything is not always as it seems and behind all the fame and fortune hides an abundance of lies, secrets, temptation, scandals, secrets, heartbreak and tragedy. The prose is polished and lush. The characters are multi-layered, alluring, and materialistic. And the plot is a well-paced, sweeping saga filled with familial drama, love, loss, mystique, heartbreak, romance, rivalry, greed, red herrings and jealousy. Overall, Fatal Inheritance is a beautifully crafted, exceptionally absorbing novel that transports you to another time and place and immerses you so thoroughly in the decadence, lifestyle, luxuries, and scandalous behaviour of the characters you never want to put it down. It is a true guilty pleasure and undoubtedly one of my favourite novels of the year.

    What a beautiful read! Thank you to NetGalley, Simon & Schuster and author Ms. Rachel Rhys for this Advanced Readers Copy. Completely drawn in from the first chapter. "Fatal Inheritance" is an engaging story about an unhappy woman who receives notice by mail, that she has been left an heritance by a complete stranger. "Eve Forrester" begins looking... for her connection to this stranger...for herself...for love and for the answers to that missing thing in her life that she can't quite grasp. Our story begins in England and unfolds in the French Riviera Eve finds more than she expects...glamour, greed, intrigue...and secrets maybe best left untold. With a great cast of characters that play on in your mind long after the last page has been read. This is a delicious read you shouldn't miss!

    A Disappointing Read

    In 1948, Eve Forrester, a young Englishwoman in a loveless marriage, learns that she's been named in the will of Guy Lester, an Englishman living in France who Eve never met. Eve travels to France, determined to discover her connection to Guy Lester. What she discovers is not likely what she expected. The title "Fatal Inheritance" is very appropriate for this story, and parts of the story itself are interesting. On the whole, however, I found this book a tedious read.
