About the Book
A surprise inheritance. A cache of family secrets. A choice that will change her life forever.
Lillian Doyle has lived her entire high-society life with her widowed mother, believing her father died long ago. But when news arrives that her estranged father only recently passed away–in jail–Lillian is startled to find that the man has left a business and all of his possessions to her, making her a rather unusual heiress.
When she goes to take possession of her father’s house in a backwoods Georgia town, the dilapidated structure is already occupied by another woman who claims it was promised to her son, Jonah. In her attempts to untangle the mess, Lillian will discover not only a family she never knew she had but a family business that is more than meets the eye–and has put a target on her back.
To discover the truth and take hold of the independence she’s always dreamed of, she’ll have to make friends with adversaries and strangers–especially Jonah, the dusty and unrefined cowboy who has secret aspirations of his own.

Review of The Swindler’s Daughter
This was a great book. I have started to really appreciate historical fiction again, maybe because I wish for simpler times than what we’re living in now, and this book was great. I quickly grew to like Lillian, she wasn’t the spoiled woman that I assumed she would be. The storyline was great and I absolutely LOVED Alma and Lewis’ relationship. Her mother and Melanie grew on me too. Jonah, I wasn’t sure what to think of him and while it took me a while to warm up to him and find his intentions noble, he was a great character for being opposite Lillian. I would definitely read more from this amazing writer. I love her writing style and her storylines kept me turning the pages. Definitely a book I will recommend to many.
I was given this book as a complimentary copy but was not required to write a review.
