The Swindler’s Daughter by Stephenia H. McGee
Mich.—Stephenia H. McGee combines history, intrigue, and romance in her new novel, The Swindler’s Daughter. Set in the Deep South, this captivating tale follows the path of an aristocratic young woman as she copes with life-changing circumstances and discovers a family she never knew existed.
A high-society lady, Lillian Doyle has only her widowed mother for family, believing her father died many years before. But her world is completely changed when she learns that her father has only just passed—in jail. Not only is she shocked by this news, but she also
learns she is the heiress to all of her father’s earthly possessions, including a run-down house and a business.
After Lillian travels to rural Georgia to take possession of her “new” home, she learns there is one small catch—a woman is already living in the house, and she insists that it belongs to her son, Jonah. The inherited business is also more than meets the eye and has put
Lillian into a treacherous situation.
But she isn’t ready to give up on her strange inheritance. With the danger comes the possibility of truth and independence, and she is determined to have both. To do that, she’ll have to turn her enemies into allies, including Jonah, an unrefined cowboy who has secret
aspirations of his own.
