Amazon Editorial Review

Belmond?s much-beloved debut novel, A Rather Lovely Inheritance was "a rare gem" (Romance Reviews Today) and ?An entertaining yarn with family drama and intrigue aplenty.?(Booklist). Now, in the eagerly anticipated sequel, A Rather Curious Engagement, our American freelancer- turned-heiress Penny Nichols is back for more fun? and another engaging international romp with her English hero, Jeremy.

Penny has the great London flat, the classic car, the villa in France, the fabulous bank account, and a great guy to share them with. So everything's perfect, right? Right? Er, well...

Pursued by gigolos, gold-diggers, an ex-wife, and highly aggressive salesmen chasing after their millions, Penny and Jeremy decide to take the summer off and sock away most of their inheritance for one year. 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 than they bargain for, uncovering a centuries-old rivalry involving the theft of a priceless treasure linked to Beethoven?s Germany, the mysterious island of Corsica, a luxurious 1920s yacht, and a medieval castle on Lake Como, Italy.
A Rather Curious Engagement is a stay-up-all-night read, with an irresistible, unbeatable heroine seeking answers to intriguing questions about history, art, fortune and love. It?s the perfect companion to the first novel.
