Publisher's Summary

In best-selling author Rochelle Alers' passionate, uplifting new series, four friends from very different backgrounds find new beginnings amid the sultry beauty of New Orleans.

Corporate attorney Hannah DuPont-Lowell always pictured herself returning to New Orleans to retire - just not yet. But after her Manhattan company abruptly lays off its staff, there's no better place to figure out a next move than the porch of her plantation-style home.

Nestled in the stunning Garden District, the DuPont House has been in Hannah's family for two centuries. With its 18 rooms and two guesthouses, it's far more home than widowed Hannah needs. Still, it could make a wonderful inn, especially if she can convince her friends and former coworkers Tonya, Jasmine, and Nydia to join in the venture. But in the meantime, Hannah has a high school reunion to attend.

College Professor St. John McNair, Hannah's onetime classmate, is still the finest guy in any room. Between Hannah's willowy, blonde beauty and his uncanny resemblance to Marvin Gaye, they make a striking pair. And gradually their rekindled friendship moves toward romance. Still, Hannah is too bruised by her late husband's infidelities to trust a man again. But her friends' arrival and encouragement just might show her a path through uncertainty - straight to a vibrant, joyful new life.

    I enjoy books on courtroom drama; espionage; murder mysteries; some but not all of the romance novels; I enjoy listening vs. reading.

    Story
    "New Life Starts with Allowing yourself to Trust"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Inheritance to be better than the print version?

    Well I think it would be helpful to have the male characters narrated by male readers. Using one narrator can confuse the listener as to who is speaking at the moment since the narrator sometimes forget to change their voice levels and tones to match the character they are narrating for at the moment.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Inheritance?

    The moment most memorable for me was when Hanna Dupont Lowel was introduced to the cousin of Senjin (the Chef - Ustus). Senjin seemed to be jealous of the attention Hanna received from the Ustus.


    Which character – as performed by Simi Howe – was your favorite?

    Tonya and Hanna seemed to be the most level headed among the group of the women in the story


    Who was the most memorable character of The Inheritance and why?

    Hanna - I liked her goal of opening a B&B with the family estate. Her train of thought was very productive, and business driven.


    Any additional comments?

    Hanna's choice to distrust Senjin without listening to his explanation was very immature on her part. If she had put herself in his place I think she would have reacted differently.

    "the city that live within "

    I really feel there could have been a more passionate story for the book to take place in New Orleans There wasn't much suspension or thrills. I love new Orleans and I don't think the city that lives within was felt. Perhaps the characters should have been in a smaller town. I'd prefer if the main character was someone I could see myself in.

    "Worth the read"

    Starts slow but worth the read. Lots of New Orleans and American history. Good segment on food, recipes, and hospitality. I'm reading again. Tips on serving guess and good manners. Good read.

    "A wonderful love story and newfound friendship!"

    This is a wonderful story about love and friendship! Hannah was a to find the friendship in the most unlikely women. A return to New Orleans was what was needed in Hannah's life.
