The Inheritance by Jennifer Benson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
***** 3.5 Cranky Stars *****
Rory London inherits Happy Endings Resort from a long lost relative she didn't even know she had. At the age of 26, Rory has very little to show of her life. Alone in the world, the inheritance of this resort is all she has left. Or is it? Jason Duke, Esq. is the attorney handling the Happy Endings Resort Estate. He is a handsome twenty-eight-year-old, part-time resident of Happy Endings Resort. He is also the keeper of some of the ghosts in Rory's family's closet. When a dead body is found on the property, Rory assumes temporary ownership of the resort, in name only, and finds out more than she ever wanted to about a family she never knew she had. Can the blossoming relationship between Rory and Jason survive her family's secrets?
"I always wondered why an attorney needed a sofa in their office. Now I knew it was for reasons like this, when your attorney tells you that your grandmother was a madam and your mother wasn't actually your mother."
This story was definitely cute and funny. Rory London was dealt a bad hand in life. The secrets keep piling up right to the end. Happy Endings resort has all kinds of people: a resident psychic, a horny couple into threesomes and exhibitionism, a lawyer, a PI, a murderer and some of the nicest people ever. Add all of this together with a family you never knew existed and you get a great story.
Although the storyline is great and the editing superb, I really wish the author went into more detail and added more to this story. I found myself asking a lot of questions like "How did that happen?" And "Where are they now?"
Overall, I did enjoy the story and look forward to the next installment.
