Penny Nichols has the London apartment, the classic cat, the villa in France, the fabulous bank account, and the great guy to share them all with. So everything’s perfect, right? Er, well … Pursued by gigolos, gold diggers, an ex-wife, and highly aggressive salesmen, all chasing after their millions, freelancer-turned-heiress Penny Nichols and her boyfriend, Jeremy, decide to take a whole summer off and sock away most of their inheritance. But they allow themselves one big splurge from their wish list—and that’s where all the trouble begins. At an auction on the French Riviera, Penny and Jeremy win much more then they bargain for, as they uncover a centuries-old rivalry involving the theft of a strange priceless treasure linked to Beethoven’s Germany. Investigating everything from a 1920s yacht on the Mediterranean to the legendary superstitions of the island of Corsica right up to a castle on Lake Como, Italy, Penny and Jeremy track down a mysterious elderly count whose fractured memory may hold the piece of this fascinating historical puzzle.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In Belmond’s lilting sequel to A Rather Lovely Inheritance, heroine Penny Nichols exults in being released from her stodgy American life and learns that being newly rich is not all champagne and roses…It’s fluffy and fun, even if you don't have your own yacht.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Belmond’s second novel is bound to charm romantic suspense fans.”


Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Carmen | 2/19/2014

    " Penny and Jeremy start spending their inheritances. Somehow they also manage to get involved with a 100 year old mystery, robbery and suspicious activity. The book is humorous, but not predictable. The characters are well developed. I wish that I had the life Penny has had and her resources. I'm just not sure that I would have made the decisions she did. Mine are not always the best ones. "

    " Another great story without the swearing this time. "

    " I rather enjoyed this book more than the first one. It was an good book, but still not a fantastic book. I am glad I read it and would read another. "

    " Penny and Jeremy seem to have a talent for finding things and solving what nobody else has been able to and the thing is whatever it is finds them they don;t look for it not intentionally anyway. In their case nothing is definitely ever as easy as it looks or as you'd think it would be. "
