The woman from Paris by Santa Montefiore

Santa Montefiore also wrote "The French Gaardener" which was a delightful story, so I had to try this one.
Lord Frampton dies in a skiing accident, a lovely young woman, Phaedra,  attends his funeral, claiming to be his daughter.  Of course his Wife, Mother, and Children and In-laws are outraged.  To further put a little more salt into this particular wound, Phaedra at the reading of the will, inherits $500,000 and the very famous Frampton Sapphires.  The complications of this story are legion; infidelity, new love, old love, old stories finally seeing the light of day, forgiveness, crooked lawyer, and more!
Loved the story, was a rainy weekend, good for reading, and was a great place to be - an English country estate!
