Penny finds that she is now the owner of the garage of the villa which Aunt owned and of course everything that is in the garage. Apart from old tools and rusty tins, there is a pristine, hugely expensive car which needs just minor repairs but this is only the tip of the iceberg. Enter an evil cousin Rollo and his equally oily mother who are out to get whatever more they can get from the inheritance.
The book was light - romance, complicated family relationships and skeletons in the closet (lots of skeletons actually), a chase through several countries trying to locate a missing painting and general fun. I also think people had a lot of fun in the 1920s period and we are staid in comparison!
A nice warm feeling at the end. Good always prevail the evil are vanquished and happy ever after. Just what I needed.
