Publisher's Summary

Augusta “Tucker” Delacroix is perfectly content running a successful oil field supply company until her brother and business partner, Jim Bob, dies suddenly. Things go from bad to worse when she gets a call from Monique, a beautiful stranger who turns out to be Jim Bob’s mistress and mother to his son. Monique needs financial support for her child, and Tucker steps up - it’s what family does. Willow Vernon has never approved of her sister’s affair with a wealthy married man, but when Monique becomes ill, Willow assumes care of her nephew. When Tucker insists that financial support should give her custody rights, Willow’s ready to go to battle. Tucker’s the same kind of irresponsible philander as Jim Bob, and she’s not falling for the Delacroix charm like Monique had, no matter how tempting Tucker might be. Family ties bring Tucker and Willow together, but they could also tear them, and any chance they have at love, apart.

Exceptional work.

This is an amazing work. Over the years my preference in books has changed, as many things do. The Inheritance checks off all the boxes for me. Believable and thoughtful plot - check. Characters that you cheer for and cuss - check. A believable path from the worlds drama to a place of happiness- check. A love that transcends the world - check. The vibrant picture of heat Ali Vali paints between the characters is a great bonus.

Personally seeing a family that is almost as dysfunctional as my own and being able to laugh is priceless.

Do yourself a favor and fall into the world created between the covers Ali Vali never seems to disappoint and The Inheritance is no exception.

Tucker's Voice

I know this is a good story—I do. But I could NOT get past Tucker's voice. It was too off-putting to continue. I might read this one instead because I'm returning this version. The manliness coupled with the accent just made it impossible to endure or believe she was sexy. I do love Lori Prince normally though ... just not this time.

Tucker's Voice??

I am a huge fan of narrator Lori Prince but she just missed the mark on this one. Tucker sounds like a man (alot) which makes it very unappealing. I had to stop in chapter 3. The concept sounded good but I just could not get past Tuckers voice.

Excellent book

I love Ali Vali’s books and this one was completely different that her usual books. I love Lori Prince narration but I didn’t care for the voice she gave Tucker.
All in all a great book.

Excellent Audio!

I Enjoyed The Inheritance. Summary? Family connections and drama usually lead to problems. I had already read the book.

loved it

I absolutely loved this book. I also loved Lori Prince's narration, a lot of the comments said a lot of people had an issue with Tucker's voice. I found it just fine because I could tell these characters apart.

This had my favorite trope of family. I will listen to this a few times. I cried, and cried and felt love and heartache. I hated one character, then wanted to smack some weasels. loved the baby. highly recommend this... I'm weak for this trope though, family or forced family for Convenience... my kryptonite.

Touching story

The author took the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions throughout this book. One minute you were in a heated love scene the next a drama filled family situation, then this reader found herself laughing for a bit and then crying at the way the scenes were written. The emotional content of this story was beyond great and kept this reader in suspense as to what would come next. This is a love story that can actually mimic real life experiences. Wonderfully written and thoroughly refreshing as well as completely enjoyable.
