THE INHERITANCE by Olivia Mayfield ~ Blurb Blitz & Giveaway

Tour Schedule

Maggie Willings knew that returning home for her estranged grandfather’s funeral would not be easy, but she never expected the reading of his will to be the most difficult part. The four people named in the will—Maggie, her brother Robert, her ex-boyfriend Andrew, and her grandfather’s far-too-young girlfriend Bethany—are given a challenge: find out the truth about what happened to Maggie’s younger sister Cassandra, who vanished over eight years ago, and win the entirety of the estate.
Maggie is thrown by the strange request, reluctant to drag up painful memories of her sister’s disappearance, and bothered by her lingering attraction to Andrew, who wants to team up to solve the mystery. But there are ten million dollars on the line and Maggie has no idea where to start—or who she’ll be able to trust.

“Wait, we need to talk,” Andrew said. “About all of this.”
Her heart thudded. She looked up.
Andrew paused. “You’ve changed,” he murmured out of nowhere, unashamedly staring at her, gaze practically raking her hair, her eyes, her figure. His blue eyes were striking, thorough. “You seem different now.”
Her skin grew hot and tingly. She felt on display for him, studied in a way she hadn’t been looked at in a long, long time. “I grew up.” She raised one eyebrow. “You’ve changed too.”
Amazing. She was sitting here, having a real conversation with the guy who’d broken her heart all those years ago. But now they were competitors in a twisted game none of them really wanted to play.
Cassandra. The center of her family’s world, even years after her disappearance. Maggie couldn’t escape it.
“I had to change,” Andrew said with a dismissive shrug, interrupting her thoughts. “I was a kid, and I was incredibly stupid. As you remember all too well, I’m sure,” he added with a wry smile.

She thinned her lips, her pulse thrumming in her ears. Not going down that road right now. She needed to focus.
“What did you want to talk about?” she asked him to get them back on track.
The flicker of emotion in his face fell away, and he became businesslike. “I have a proposal for you regarding the investigation,” he said crisply. “We pair up and help each other.”

    1. Hey Andra! You're right the cover is great. I have to admit, I was too busy looking at the blurb and excerpt to notice the cover before. :(

    1. Hey Rita.

      That's what I told Olivia. I'm really curious to find out why the Grandfather set his will up this way and why he choose to have the people involved that he did.

  6. Hi Olivia,

    You are a new-to-me author so it will be interesting to follow your tour and learn more about you and your books. This book, The Inheritance', sounds quite intriguing. What made you decide to add Andrew in the group of potential heirs? Of course, I haven't read the book yet, but he seems to be a bit out of place in that group of family members. Certainly Bethany wasn't a family member, but at least she had close ties to the grandfather. Care to elaborate on this?

    1. Exactly Karen. I don't know where the book is going and I don't have a feel for it. But it's like the grandfather was playing matchmaker. If you notice, the book is Part 1. So who knows what's going to happen.

    2. Keep reading--there's more info on Andrew and his part in the competition as the story goes on. :D
