Nina Hill's life is perfect as it is, thank you very much.
She has an adorable little apartment, a fabulous job at a local bookstore (Knight's), and a grumpy cat (Phil).
Nina looked down and smiled...with the plentiful sarcasm and soothing rows of book spines. It was heaven on earth.
And on her wild days - she plays trivia at a local bar (provided it isn't one of the places she's been banned from) (it happens, okay?). Tom, her greatest rival, can be a bit of a jerk and Nina takes extreme pleasure in showing him up.
Her life comfortably circles around books. And honestly, she wouldn't have it any other way.
"Are your criticizing Harry Potter?"
"Never. I'm a Ravenclaw."
But unfortunately, what you want and what you get isn't always the same thing.
Nina's mother is a world class photographer and as a result, Nina spent most of her childhood curled up with a good book along with her live-in nanny.
In short, Nina is not overly fond of adventures (at least in real life).
Now, nearly thirty years old, Nina learns that not only did her mother actually know who Nina's father was... but also her father is dead.
And she's in his will.
But in order to claim it, she must meet...her (many) relatives (shudder). Strangers. Dangers. And all that.
Annnnd, all this turmoil continues to spiral.
