Eve Forrester is living in austere post–World War II England when she receives a letter stating that she has an inheritance from a mysterious stranger. As part of the conditions of the will, she travels to the French Riviera where she’s gifted a portion of a villa overlooking the Mediterranean. The family of her benefactor has no idea why Eve has been included in the will and are very suspicious of her and her motives. And although the family is in favor of a quick sale, Eve wants to delay until she can do some investigating into what her connection with her benefactor might be. As she finds herself on the edge of a very different, glamorous lifestyle, somebody, who is not happy about it, is determined to see her gone—by any means possible.
VERDICT Rhys (Dangerous Crossing), the pen name of a London-based suspense author, crafts a part-mystery, part-romance in this intriguing and intricate historical tale of a woman’s journey to self-discovery.
