Fatal Inheritance by Rachel Rhys

On September 23, 2018

By Sophia Whitfield

Step back in time to 1948 in this glittering novel that sparkles with a hint of mystery.

Eve Forrester is trapped in a loveless marriage with a stuffy husband who enjoys having ultimate control over her.

When she receives a letter regarding a mystery inheritance she decides she must go to the French Riviera where her benefactor awaits.

The legacy is an enchanting villa on the French Riviera overlooking the Mediterranean. More glamorous than Eve had ever imagined,  she soon begins to see the people around her are not quite as entitled as they might seem.

Alone in the vast villa, Eve is determined to unlock the secret behind her legacy. Why did her now deceased benefactor feel the need to leave her something when they had never met and have no family connection.

This the tale of a dysfunctional family with secrets long hidden, grappling with their changed circumstances.

Rhys takes a visceral look at life behind the glamour. The lengths people will go to keep up appearances.

A terrific read to lose yourself in.

You can buy the book here in Australia and here in the UK.
