Summary

This is your life Penny Nichols....
Penny Nichols is a historical researcher working on a big-budget film in the south of France when she gets an urgent call. Her Aunt Penelope has just died, and Penny's presence is required in London for the reading of the will.
A rather lovely inheritance....
With only a slim recollection of her eccentric aunt, Penny is astonished to learn that not only is she the bona fide heiress - but she's also been invited to put her research skills to work. This time, the history she's researching happens to be her very own.
To the irresistible dare of a lifetime....
What she discovers about Aunt Penelope, a pair of wills, double lives, secret histories, and a family tree of 'vultures' is about to sweep Penny and a long-lost relative across France, over the hills of Italy, and through half of Europe on the adventure of several lifetimes. This is her life, her past, her chance at love - and Penny's going to live with the kind of passion she's always dreamed of!

Happy escapism

Katherine Kellgren is an excellent reader, and the perfect voice for this piece of very enjoyable escapism. I have read other novels in this series and decided that this is an author who is better listened to than read - Kellgren's lively, sometimes dry narration really lifts the prose which might otherwise be a bit cloying. But this is fluffy fun: the Riviera, art theft, an inherited house - a great antidote to grey British winter weather.

Delightful Story with Excellent Narratation

What did you love best about A Rather Lovely Inheritance?

Story, interaction of characters, dialog, narration -- couldn't pick just one!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Penny & Jeremy (both!)

What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

passion, keeps your interest, makes the story & characters come to life!

If you could take any character from A Rather Lovely Inheritance out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Aunt Penelope (although she is dead in the story) -- fascination conversation

Any additional comments?

For those who like sex, sex, sex and foul language dripping for the pages, this book is not for you. For those who like mystery and subtle romance (thereby engaging the imagination), this book just might be for you! Plus, you will not be embarrassed if your children are around while you listen to this. A very important plus for me!

Story OK

Story line was interesting, but the writing is very flowery and overly dramatic at times. Reader was excellent.
