I have a really awesome book to share with you today called The Price of Inheritance written by Karin Tanabe that I think you will enjoy reading.
In this enthralling new novel from the author of The List (a “smartly paced and dishy debut,” Publishers Weekly, starred review), a young woman working in the high-end art world stumbles upon a rare antique—and an irresistible man with a dark past.
After eight years in the American Furniture department at Christie’s, twenty-nine-year-old Carolyn Everett is a rising star. But one wrong decision and a scandal leaves her unemployed and broken. Desperate to piece her life back together, Carolyn leaves New York City to work in a tiny antique store in Newport, Rhode Island.
One day at a small county auction, she discovers a piece of Middle Eastern pottery, which she purchases for twenty dollars on a hunch. Curiosity sends her on a mission to find its original owner, and she eventually winds up in the town’s United States Navy Base—and in a relationship with notorious womanizer Marine Sergeant Tyler Ford, who claims the relic came to him as a gift from his translator during the early days of the Iraq War. From two different worlds, Tyler and Carolyn become obsessed with the mysterious relic—and each other—until the origin of the art comes under intense scrutiny and reveals a darker side of Tyler’s past. Carolyn still feels like there’s more to the story, but can she risk attaching herself to another scandal—and does she truly know the man she’s fallen in love with?
The Price of Inheritance is a rare find of a novel. Engaging, suspenseful, and full of intrigue, it delves into the elite world of big bucks deals and dangerous black market promises, where one woman must decide whether she’s willing to gamble her greatest asset—her heart.
Wow, this book has so many plots running around that it's a wonder that poor Carolyn could have ever figured it out, but with determination and resolve, she decided to find out all she could about this bowl that seemed to fascinate many people, some good and some very bad.
She learns a valuable lesson that even though people may be rich, that doesn't mean that they came by it honestly and she gets caught up in the middle of something that she had no idea was going on.
Even some of the people she trusted were not who they really seemed to be. This book is full of action and it continues throughout the book. This is one of those books you won't want to put down until you know the ending!
