The inheritance of a lifetime… with a catch
When Sophie’s uncle leaves her a castle in the Italian Riviera in his will, she can’t believe her luck. The catch? She and her estranged sister, Rachel, must live there together for three months in order to inherit it.
Having worked in Rome for four years, Sophie’s excited to revisit to Italy, even if it reignites memories of a cheating ex who soon learns of her return and wants to rekindle their spark. Sophie realises that distance does indeed make the heart grow fonder – but for her friend back home, Chris, who she discovers is more to her than just a friend.
With the clock ticking, can Sophie and Rachel stick it out and heal old wounds, or are the sisters destined to go their own way at the end of the three months?
And does Chris feel the same way about Sophie as she does for him?
A beautiful story of romance and sisterhood, perfect for fans of Alex Brown and Lucy Coleman.
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of this author’s work, and his latest novel is quite delicious!
Sophie and her sister haven’t spoken for years; now, with the death of their uncle they stand to inherit his Italian castle providing they can live there – together – for three months. The castle is worth a great deal of money, but can they survive living with each other?
What a wonderful read! From the very beginning, I felt as if the Italian sunshine was warming my bones. Now, anyone who is familiar with Trevor Williams novels will know to look out for a Labrador and this one is no different. Jeeves is a fabulous character, with all the traits known to this breed and I quite expected to meet him on the rare occasions I laid the book aside. Just as well I have my own two to cuddle! The human characters are just as well crafted and this is an easy flowing read which will definitely put you in the mood for a sunny visit to Italy. With a few ups and downs along the way, it bodes well for the rest of this series. Absolutely terrific, and I can find nothing to criticise. As such, it earns a full house of stars and my hearty recommendation!

I’m a man. And a pretty old man as well. I did languages at university a long time ago and then lived and worked in France and Switzerland before going to Italy for seven years as a teacher of English. My Italian wife and I then came back to the UK with our little daughter (now long-since grown up) where I ran a big English language school for many years. We now live in a sleepy little village in Devonshire. I’ve been writing almost all my life but it was only seven years ago that I finally managed to find a publisher who liked my work enough to offer me my first contract.
The fact that I am now writing escapist romance is something I still find hard to explain. My early books were thrillers and historical novels. Maybe it’s because there are so many horrible things happening in the world today that I feel I need to do my best to provide something to cheer my readers up. My books provide escapism to some gorgeous locations, even if travel to them is currently difficult.
