Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Countless layers of betrayal overlap in this tightly knit tale by the husband-and-wife writing team of ``Judith Michael.'' After the death of their parents, Laura and Clay Fairchild are trained in the stealthy art of burglary by their stepbrother Ben. In setting up the wealthy owners of the world-class Salinger hotel chain, Ben intends to avenge his father for injuries done him by Felix Salinger. Laura scotches this plan, however, by striking up an unlikely friendship with Owen, the clan patriarch, who takes the reserved young woman under his wing and is repaid tenfold by her fierce devotion. In this happy home, Laura finds a family and a lover, Paul. But she loses everything when Felix uses her past to thrust her out of paradise during a bitter contest over Owen's will. Determined to regain her legacy, she creates an exclusive hotel empire that rivals that of the Salingers, while Ben makes his mark on that family through a more underhanded route. Then a twist of fate nearly destroys their hard-earned achievements. Although the plot twists are sadly predictable, lively characterizations and a smooth, assured style add up to first-rate commercial entertainment that far surpasses their most recent novel, Private Affairs. Paperback rights to Pocket Books. (April)

    Money, Mystery and a Powerful Woman...

    I've loved Judith&Michael's style... Especially in Deceptions and Tangled Web, but INHERITANCE is the best! I read it my early twenties and it has always been a stand out... I decided to read again almost a decade later to see if it was really as good as I remembered... I was NOT disappointed... I think I liked it even more the second time. (My husband even read it!... Then bought me another Judith Michael book.) This is one I wish they would write a sequel too. It has money, mystery and a powerful women EARNING revenge. A classic in my library.
