About

Welcome to Trevelyan Castle, home of the poorest heiress in Victorian England

Tressa Harlowe's father kept his vast fortune hidden somewhere on his estate in the south of England and died suddenly, without telling anyone where he had concealed it. Now Tressa and her ailing mother are left with a mansion and an immense vineyard and no money to run it.

It doesn't take long for a bevy of opportunists to flock to the estate under the guise of offering condolences. Tressa knows what they're really up to. She'll have to work with the rough and rusticated vineyard manager to keep the laborers content without pay and discover the key to finding her father's fortune--before someone else finds it first.

This book is a treasure in itself and one you won't be able to put down!"--Roseanna M. White, bestselling author of the Ladies of the Manor series and Shadows Over England series

Praise for Lady Jayne Disappears

"In this delightful debut, a sweet romance, Politano pens a clever story-within-a-story full of Victorian intrigue and ghosts. . . . Older readers who miss the great gothic romances of Victoria Holt, Phyllis Whitney, and Mary Stewart will enjoy Politano's tale, as will readers looking for a chaste romance."--Booklist

"Witty, heartfelt, and elegantly penned, the story captivates readers from the first page to the last."--RT Book Reviews

"In depicting Aurelie's dogged pursuit of finishing her father's work, Politano also poignantly explores the rules (spoken and unspoken) of 19th-century English society in this excellent tale."--Publishers Weekly
