I’m not a TV watcher, but I love Downton Abbey so when this book was pitched to me, I was immediately intrigued. The Heiresses is aimed at the YA market but has the trademark money, intrigue, secrets and scandal spin that has made Downton Abbey addictive viewing. Here’s a blurb to whet your appetite:
Seventeen-year-olds Thalia, Erato and Clio are summoned to glittering 1926 London by Hestia, an aunt they never knew they had. They are shocked to discover they were separated at birth and are in fact triplets and the rightful heiresses to their deceased mother’s fortune. All they need to do is find a way to claim the inheritance from their greedy half brother, Charles.
The sisters move to Hestia’s house in Belgrave Square to begin their new lives. But amid the confusion of new romances and money, they each struggle to find their way. Thalia knows she can never return home to her dark past; Erato’s dreams threaten to slip from her grasp; and Clio must save the only mother she has ever known.
As the battle for their shared fortune grows more complex, the girls realize that they can’t trust anyone – least of all each other.
A thrillingly addictive saga of love, betrayal, money and intrigue.
