This is your life, Penny Nichols.
Penny Nichols is a historical researcher working on a big-budget film in the south of France when she gets an urgent call. Her aunt Penelope has just died, and Penny's presence is required in London for the reading of the will.
From a rather lovely inheritance...
With only a slim recollection of her eccentric aunt, Penny is astonished to learn that not only is she the bona fide heiress--but she's also been invited to put her research skills to work. This time, the history she's researching happens to be her very own.
To the irresistible dare of a lifetime.
What she discovers about Aunt Penelope, a pair of wills, double lives, secret histories, and a family tree of vultures is about to sweep Penny and a long-lost relative across France, over the hills of Italy, and through half of Europe on the adventure of several lifetimes. This is her life, her past, her chance at love-and Penny's going to live with the kind of passion she's always dreamed of...
"Kellgren's enthusiastic narration sweeps listeners through the beautiful French countryside, the Riviera, and the busy streets of London while making details of vintage cars, clothing, and art history sound utterly enchanting. A little suspense and romance, complete with a happy ending, make for rather lovely listening indeed."
"Penny narrates, so London trained actress and Audie award-winning narrator Katherine Kellgren's youthful, energetic reading suits and artfully captures Penny's plucky, plunging adventuresome, romantic sprit and warmth. Sequels A Rather Charming Invitation and A Rather Curious Engagement are equally well read and fun listening. Excellent matching of skilled reader with the story and characters. Notably charming cover art on the package."
