A Transporting Historical Mystery | A Rumored Fortune by Joanna Davidson Politano


Tressa Harlowe's father did not trust banks, but neither did he trust his greedy extended family. He kept his vast fortune hidden somewhere on his estate in the south of England and died suddenly, without telling anyone where he had concealed it. Tressa and her ailing mother are left with a mansion and an immense vineyard and no money to run it. It doesn't take long for a bevy of opportunists to flock to the estate under the guise of offering condolences. Tressa knows what they're really up to. She'll have to work with the rough and rusticated vineyard manager to keep the laborers content without pay and discover the key to finding her father's fortune--before someone else finds it first.

Award-winning author Joanna Davidson Politano welcomes readers to Trevelyan Castle, home of the poorest heiress in Victorian England, for a treasure hunt they'll not soon forget.

Tressa Harlowe’s father possessed quite an extensive fortune, and to best keep it safe, he hid it on his estate—and died without sharing the location. Now, Tressa is left to care for her mother and home without money to do so. She determines to find her father’s fortune, but must simultaneously fend off the wealth-hungry people returning to her life under disguised purposes. Who can she trust? And ultimately, what will her search uncover?

Joanna Davidson Politano’s A Rumored Fortune kept me in suspense from start to finish. She crafts the setting and characters so well that I felt transported into the story and did not want the experience to end. It’s no wonder that I loved this book and look forward to reading much more from Politano in the future. Historical readers, definitely pick up A Rumored Fortune.
