A Rumored Fortune by Joanna Davidson Politano is superb writing. Seriously, good writing. So good that I had to really pay attention to every single sentence. I prefer a book that I can read, something light, quickly. This had to be read in silence with my full attention. It reads like a classic and not something put out in 2018. It's in its own realm.
The story centers on Tressa Harlowe and the castle she grew up in. Her father's death has set the town in a frenzy. Everyone is showing up for money due them. Extended family arrives to help in the treasure hunt for the rumored fortune.
Unfolding the story is slow, this does not move very fast at all, and almost minute by minute. There are some twists and turns I never saw coming. Surprises throughout the second half of the book.
Very good reading if you have the time and attention to give it. This is not a beach read, this is a soaking in the tub read.
