A Rumored Fortune by Joanna Davidson Politano ~ Review

Lucie's Review:
Tressa Harlowe's father didn't trust anyone, not even banks. So when he dies without telling a soul where his ast fortune is hidden, extended family and friends flock to their estate under the guise of offering condolences to search for the fortune.

Meanwhile Tressa must work with the Donegan Vance, the vineyard keeper, to keep the staff happy until she is able to find money to pay them for their service before someone else finds the money.

Tressa faces many pressures, with her ailing mother to take care of as well as running the household. Tressa doesn't know who to trust, as many are offering to help her with seemingly good intentions including her ex-fiance, Andrew Carrington, who broke up with her when his parents didn't approve. Tressa is an artist, and she prays while she paints and finds peace in the vine and branches imagery which is woven into the story.

Donegan is a a very direct and straightforward man, he doesn't sugarcoat things but he tries to protect her from the fortune hunters. Donegan knows things about her father that she doesn't, and he wants to protect her from unnecessary pain. He is a  man of faith and action, he likes to help others and lift their spirits.

Overall,  fantastic read, highly entertaining and intriguing, with plenty of twists and surprises along the way. Interesting side characters, vivid imagery, great dialog with touches of humor. Tressa is a passionate and strong heroine, while Donegan is dashing and opinionated, their strong faith pulls them together while secrets and doubt threaten to part them. A thrilling drama, captivating and well written. Definitely recommend!
