The Swindler's Daughter Review



 About the Book

 A surprise inheritance. A cache of family secrets. A choice that will change her life forever.

Lillian Doyle has lived her entire high-society life with her widowed mother, believing her father died long ago. But when news arrives that her estranged father only recently passed away--in jail--Lillian is startled to find that the man has left a business and all of his possessions to her, making her a rather unusual heiress.

When she goes to take possession of her father's house in a backwoods Georgia town, the dilapidated structure is already occupied by another woman who claims it was promised to her son, Jonah. In her attempts to untangle the mess, Lillian will discover not only a family she never knew she had but a family business that is more than meets the eye--and has put a target on her back.

To discover the truth and take hold of the independence she's always dreamed of, she'll have to make friends with adversaries and strangers--especially Jonah, the dusty and unrefined cowboy who has secret aspirations of his own. (Goodreads)



My Thoughts

I really wanted to love this book. I love the idea of it and the overall plot I found interesting. I just struggled to get into the story. There are some very unique ideas in this book that I haven't really read much on which is great. I like the mystery that flows throughout the entire story and I do enjoy Jonah's character. The setting is fun and I did get a little frustrated with a couple of the characters but the ending wrapped everything up nicely. I think the main thing is I just couldn't click with the characters. A lot of people have really enjoyed this story, it just wasn't my favorite. I know many others will love it!

Three Stars.
