Janet and Joan had used the money they’d inherited from Mildred to buy Doveby House.

When Roland’s solicitor, Eldridge Quinton, arrives, he and Roland suggest a settlement that would see the sisters paying their cousin far more than they can easily afford.

But is Roland truly their distant cousin? Is the newly discovered will actually genuine? Will the man’s visit ruin Christmas for the sisters, or can their friends help them out of a difficult situation?  (Amazon)
