Book Description

It was a comedown for Emily Lamont to arrive at the small mountain gallery in Gatlinburg after running the prestigious Newman Gallery for so many years. Still, it wasn't as though she had many other options. The Newmans never made a clear will leaving her the gallery, although they meant to. With the Newmans' only nephew inheriting their property, and the gallery, Emily felt moving to Gatlinburg to manage the Creekside Gallery her only option. Now she simply needed to make the best of it, including banging heads with the man who felt his mother should have inherited the gallery instead of her.

Garrison Log Homes owner, Cooper Garrison, felt bitter when the Creekside Gallery changed hands without his mother getting an option to buy it. She'd managed the gallery since he was a boy, and now some woman, not even a relative of the Newmans, had inherited it. Grudgingly, Cooper agrees to fix up the apartment above the gallery for the new owner, but when she arrives, she is not at all what Cooper expects. Despite being attracted to her, problems from the past keep Cooper running from a deeper relationship. When an unexpected event sends Emily back to Philadelphia, Cooper is forced, at last, to examine his heart.

My Review

Lost Inheritance is the eleventh book in the Smoky Mountain series by author Lin Stepp. I have read several books in this series and found them all to be delightful. Stepp lives near the Smoky Mountains and her love of the mountains comes through in her books. Her extensive research of the area adds value and merit to the series. I find that Stepp really captures the nature of the people of the mountains in her novels.

Lost Inheritance tells the story of Emily Lamont, the new owner of a gallery in Gatlinburg. Emily had expected to inherit a gallery in Philadelphia from her unofficially adoptive parents. Instead she inherited a small gallery in Gatlinburg. Enter Cooper Garrison who had always thought his mother should have been given an opportunity to buy the gallery. Before you know it sparks are flying...

Lin Stepp's books are always well written and a pleasure to read. Lost Inheritance is indeed a treat. Pick up a copy to see if Emily and Cooper find their happy ending. It is available in the beginning of April.

Highly recommend Lost Inheritance.
