Overview

Having led a sheltered life-except for a major trauma-twenty-three-year-old Belinda easily falls in love with the handsome, suave Adam. He talks her into running a scam. An extremely wealthy woman is dying and wants to find her granddaughter, who disappeared at three years old. Belinda agrees to pretend to be Kathy, the granddaughter, but while exploring the mansion she has flashbacks and wonders if she really is Kathy.
After she marries Adam, his actions sometimes indicate that it was only for the inheritance. Kathy suspects that her grandmother is being poisoned. She doesn't know who to trust in the household: her grandmother's doctor, the nurse, the chef, the memoirist, even her husband. When her grandmother makes Kathy the sole beneficiary of her will, the lawyer includes a stipulation to protect Kathy from any fortune hunters. She now believes she is safe. But is she?

Excellent book. I really enjoyed reading it and had a hard time putting it down. Even at work I would sneak a chapter in between jobs. Looking forward to the next one and future books by this author.

Meet the Author

After retiring I decided to try my hand at writing. I loved reading and would read a book in one sitting. Once I starting writing my first novel, Blood On White Wicker, the characters took over and I let them. I've been writing that way ever since, and wish I had done this my whole life.

    Good Read

    This book came to me free from Smashwords. The book was very short and a good read. Plot, technique, writing mechanics were very good.
    Kathy joins a scam to pass herself off as the long lost grand daughter of a very wealthy woman. To her surprise she finds that she really IS the said grand daughter and that the woman she believed to be her mother aware of the scam. How the scam plays out to Kathy's good was nicely put. Ms Holloway has an honesty in writing that I liked. She does not make herself out to be a Patterson, Doyle, or P. Cornwell. Ms Holloway has the ability to join the ranks of the great mystery writers. I look forward to reading more of her work. Thank you Ms Holloway for a good read.
