A Question of Inheritance by Elizabeth Edmondson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is the sequel to A Man of Some Repute, and continues the story of Selcechester Castle. Now the the 17th Earl is dead, the title is settled on Gus Mason, a widowed professor from America. He arrives with his teenaged daughters, and none of them are too excited at the prospect of living in the drafty old castle. The protagonists from the first book, Hugo and Georgia Hawksworth, and Freya Wyrton are all present. It's Christmas and the house is full. Even disgruntled and erstwhile Sylvia has arrived with an art dealer and purported fiance in tow. Soon the shenanigans begin when Gus experiences some near fatal accidents. Then one of the Castle's guests meet an unfortunate end. All is well at the end of the book, and there is room left open for a continuation.
