Fatal Inheritance by Rachel Rhys

Hello my friends,

Today I am reviewing "Fatal Inheritance" by Rachel Rhys a story of dysfunctional families and long-hidden secrets, set against the decadence of the Côte d’Azur.  Great summer beach read.
Print Length: 400 pages
Publisher: Washington Square Press (June 11 2019)
Sold by: Simon & Schuster Canada, Inc.

Get swept away to the enchanting South of France with this “exquisite and shimmering” (Lisa Jewell, New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone) suspenseful historical novel, where perilous secrets lurk under the glitz and glam of seaside wealth. 

She didn’t have an enemy in the world…until she inherited a fortune.

London 1948: Eve Forrester is stuck in a loveless marriage, isolated in her gray and gloomy house when out of the blue, she receives a letter. A wealthy stranger has left her a mysterious inheritance but in order to find out more, she must travel to the glittering French Riviera.

There, Eve discovers she has been bequeathed an enchanting villa overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and suddenly, life could not be more glamorous. But while she rubs shoulders with the rich and famous, challengers to her unexplained fortune begin to emerge—challengers who would love to see Eve gone forever.

Alone in paradise, Eve must unlock the story behind her surprise bequest—before her unexpected twist of fate turns deadly…

Fatal Inheritance by Rachel Rhys is set mostly in 1940's French Riviera in the aftermath of war, I found the authors descriptions transferred me and it pulled me in right away!

Wonderful characters that are well developed and I found I wanted to know more about them and their story.  The mystery, intrigue, glamour and danger make for a great mix to keep you intrigued and turning the page.

This historical mystery is interesting and well plotted. The story moves at a steady pace, and I had a hard time putting it down. 

I requested and received an advance reader copy of this book from Simon & Schuster Canada and Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
