Description:
Harriet receives an unexpected letter telling her she's inherited a substantial bequest from her Cornish grandmother, it seems like the answer to her prayers. She owes money to a loan shark and the threats are getting increasingly aggressive: she needs to get her hands on some cash fast. There's just one problem - Hal's real grandparents died over 20 years ago. The letter has been sent to the wrong person. But Hal knows that the cold-reading techniques she's honed as a seaside fortune teller could help her con her way to getting the money. If anyone has the skills to turn up at a stranger's funeral and claim a bequest they're not entitled to, it's her. Hal makes a choice that will change her life for ever. But once she embarks on her deception, there's no going back. She must keep going or risk losing everything, even her life.

Somewhere here there was a decent story with a decent plot but it in my view was told in a somewhat clumsy way. I didn't find it creepy, was it meant to be a thriller, a family mystery, a who done it, I don't know and for me it just didn't flow, the dialogue was boring, whole sections overly long and not needed. My first RW and I'm not sure I want to embark on another.

A slow burner book for me. I found it difficult to like the main character and it was only half way

Another brilliant book by this author. Now got to wait half a year before her next one.
