aboutthebook

An old-money East Coast family faces the suspicious death of its patriarch and the unsolved theft of a Goya painting rumored to be cursed…

There were four cousins in the Morse family: perfect Kenny, the preppy West Coast lawyer; James, the shy but brilliant medical student; his seductive, hard-drinking sister Audrey; and Teresa, youngest and most fragile, haunted by the fear that she has inherited the madness that possessed her father.

Their grandfather summons them to his mansion at Owl’s Point. None of them has visited the family estate since they were children, when a prized painting disappeared: a self-portrait by Goya, rumored to cause madness or death upon viewing. Afterward, the family split apart amid the accusations and suspicions that followed its theft.

Any hope that their grandfather planned to make amends evaporates when Teresa arrives to find the old man dead, his horrified gaze pinned upon the spot where the painting once hung. As the family gathers and suspicions mount, Teresa hopes to find the reasons behind her grandfather’s death and the painting’s loss. But to do so she must uncover ugly family secrets and confront those who would keep them hidden.

DaisyGal’s Review:

In an effort to branch out in my reading, I have really been trying to step outside of my comfort realm and find new authors that haven’t crossed my path before. In doing so, I happened upon a new Indie author, Emersyn Vallis, and her Fate Series, which includes Adjournment, Hanging Pawns, Sacrifice, and End Game. The intrigue and mystery of the series kept me on the edge of my seat, and the adorable characters and light- hearted humor were just the icing on the cake to this sweet romance!
