When Eve Forrester received the notification from a solicitor to announce she had an inheritance from an unknown person, she was informed she had to travel to the French Riviera to find out what it was. Clifford, Eve’s cold and aloof husband, was against her going, especially on her own, but she put her foot down. Soon enough she was on her way, admittedly for a few days only, but she was on her own and heading to glamour – something she had never imagined.

It was 1948 and the war was over. But the effects lingered everywhere Eve looked. Learning her legacy was a quarter share in an elegant but run-down villa called Villa La Perle, she was enchanted when she saw the delightful pale pink villa which overlooked the glittering Mediterranean sea. Even knowing the other three were the wife of the man who had died, and his two sons – and the fact they didn’t want anything to do with her – couldn’t change her pleasure.

But Eve wanted to know why she was included in this legacy. Who this man was she had never heard of before. And as her determination to find the answers ramped up, so too did the danger. Someone wanted her gone. The French Riviera was a glittering façade – one that could turn deadly if she wasn’t careful…

Fatal Inheritance by Rachel Rhys was a wonderful read. Mystery, intrigue, glamour and danger – what a combination! Set mostly in the French Riviera in the aftermath of war, the descriptions and the beauty of the author’s words captivated me. Fatal Inheritance is my first by this author, but I’m sure it won’t be my last. For fans of historical mysteries, this one will hit the spot! Highly recommended.

With thanks to Penguin Random House for my ARC to read and review.
