Things start happening..vandalism, getting locked in the basement, fake telegrams. And more. But then, when they don't scare...it escalates to attempted murder. Somebody is very serious about breaking this will. Read and find out. You won't be disappointed.
A good suspense mystery. I was unable to guess who did it until I was told. Pandora and Michael make two unforgettable, fun characters. My verdict...I'm glad this is not my family!!!
Uncle Jolley was an eccentric but very wealthy old man who disliked and distrusted most of his family but was very close to and doted on his niece Pandora McVie and distant relative Michael Donahue (his mother had been Uncle Jolley's niece by Jolley's son's second marriage). The only problem was that Pandora and Michael had never been good friends.
Uncle Jolley had the last laugh on his close family members when he died. He left his collection of magic tricks to his son, and a nephew who kept the first dollar he had made was left the last dollar Jolley made, appropriately framed. Grand nephew Biff was left his collection of matches in the hope that at last he would set the world on fire.
When it came to the main bequest Jolley left most of his considerable wealth and his huge house (Jolley's Folly) to Pandora and Michael "because they understood and cared". The bequest came with a kicker - they had to move into Jolley's Folly and live there together for six months (with only 2 days away) for the estate to revert to them in equal shares.
Jolley sets up Pandora and Michael to live closely together and really get to know one another. He also stirs up his family to find ways to make sure that Pandora and Michael can't fulfil the requirements of the will.
It was an entertaining and interesting romantic setup, against a background of dirty business by the family. I needed the break and it was especially rewarding as the Kindle book had been discounted to pocket change.
What a great story. Finding out about the family and each other. Loved th e characters from the start. Hard to put down until I found out how it played out.

Uncle Jolley was eccentric to say the least, and when he died, his will was no exception. Having made all his bequests, the solicitor announced that Pandora and Michael would inherit his estate if they managed to live together for 6 months. Ever the romantic this was hours way of getting the 2 of them together. However, the pair disliked each other with a passion; once they'd thought about it, they decided to agree to his wishes, if only to make sure the rest of his relatives did not get his estate.
That's when the fun and games start, someone's out to make the pair fail. Part of the rules were that they could not spend more than 48hrs from the estate. Someone sends them on wild goose chases, start vandalising the property and even worse!
Will this tear them apart or throw them together?
I liked the characters and how they were written, the story flowed really well too. This book is really worth a read.
Good read and well worth it.
