Publisher's Summary

A lonely young heiress becomes the poorest wealthy woman in Victorian England when her father dies without telling anyone where he hid his fortune. Can Tressa and the no-nonsense estate manager find the fortune before the greedy relatives get to it first?

Tressa Harlowe's father did not trust banks, but neither did he trust his greedy extended family. He kept his vast fortune hidden somewhere on his estate in the south of England and died suddenly, without telling anyone where he had concealed it. Tressa and her ailing mother are left with a mansion and an immense vineyard and no money to run it. It doesn't take long for a bevy of opportunists to flock to the estate under the guise of offering condolences. Tressa knows what they're really up to. She'll have to work with the rough and rusticated vineyard manager to keep the laborers content without pay and discover the key to finding her father's fortune before someone else finds it first. Award-winning author Joanna Davidson Politano welcomes readers to Trevelyan Castle, home of the poorest heiress in Victorian England, for a treasure hunt they'll not soon forget.

Glad I took a chance! Loved it!

This appears to be second book by this author and I haven’t read her first one - there were no reviews because it is brand new. I’m very happy that I took a chance! The writing is captivating. I loved the way the heroine had backbone and was surprisingly creative. I’d describe the genre as mystery/suspense with some romance. I’m interested to see what she writes next.

Warn me if book is Christian or religion-oriented

I wish audible would label inspirational or religious laden literature so I wouldn't have to waste my time returning these books. I'll just have to start looking up the author before I buy a title since audible isn't going to warn me. Amazon at least indicates if an author is a Christian or other inspirational type of writer - much easier to avoid.

A Novel Full of God’s Wisdom !

This amazing book reveals story within story of God’s love, grace, and redemption in a form disguised as a mystery and romance. I highly recommend it to any reader who is searching for truth in a world that is confusing and filled with misguided assumptions and beliefs. Read it slowly so as not to overlook the treasure hidden inside.

Excellent story

Part romance, mystery, & allegory. I loved the quotes from the notebook of a viticulturist at the beginning of each chapter. I can’t wait to read more works by this author. Loved the unique voice of the narrator, too.

Great listen

Was slow at first, but not so much that I didn’t enjoy the book from the get go. I felt it ended ok , but I wouldn’t have been apposed to a more drawn out ending. It felt a bit awkward and the last scene abrupt. Overall a great listen with good character development and reveals.

Lessons

Invaluable lessons on what’s really important in life and how charity is love. Also how assumptions turn into slander. Choice metaphors.
