What's it all about?


You wake up one morning and get a phone call summoning you to London for the reading of your great-aunt's last will and testament. And just like that, you're an heiress, with a highly unusual motorcar, a vintage wardrobe, a posh London townhouse, and a mysterious legacy at an elegant villa in Antibes. You'll follow in the footsteps of some fairly glamorous forebears who’ve bequeathed a family secret for you to puzzle out. But not everyone thinks you deserve it; you'll meet up with some rather eccentric characters and you'll have to sort out friend from foe. Nevertheless, the champagne’s flowing, and the Mediterranean beckons with great food, art, music, history and fashion, leading right up to the gamble of a lifetime.

Are you game? Open the book, and go for the ride!

Regards,

CA
