Questions to ponder while reading The Art of Inheriting Secrets:

What would you do with an English manor?

Do you like food?

My review of The Art of Inheriting Secrets:

A fun book to read on the beach.

A little bit of romance is thrown in.

I *DISLIKED* Samir's reaction after being asked to slow down. Not OK!
