A RATHER CURIOUS ENGAGEMENT

C. A. BELMOND    Book Number: 81004    Product format: Paperback

A companion to A Rather Charming Invitation code 81003, we return to the life of Penny Nichols. Now in her London apartment, she has the classic car, the villa in France, the fabulous bank account and the right guy to share them all with. So why isn't everything perfect? Pursued by gigolos, gold-diggers, an ex-wife, and highly aggressive salesmen all chasing after their millions, freelancer-turned-heiress Penny and her boyfriend Jeremy decide to take a whole summer off and spend most of their inheritance. But they allow themselves one big splurge from their wish list, and that's where the trouble begins. At an auction on the French Riviera, they uncover a centuries-old rivalry involving the theft of a strange priceless treasure linked to Beethoven's Germany. Investigating everything from a 1920s yacht on the Med to the legendary superstitions of the land of Corsica right up to a castle on Lake Como, Penny and Jeremy track down a mysterious elderly Count whose fractured memory may hold the pieces to a fascinating historical puzzle. Pure delight, 363pp in paperback.
