A WILL AND A WAY by Nora Roberts was first published in 1986 and republished in 2019. Considering it was originally printed almost 35 years ago, it remains an enjoyable read.
The story has a cute premise where in order to inherit over 100 million dollars, Pandora McVie and Michael Donahue must live together in their late uncle’s home in the Catskills for six months. Related only by marriage, Pandora and Michael have never gotten along, and the only thing they had in common was their devotion to their uncle and his home in the Catskills.
Neither Pandora or Michael are interested in the money, but at the same time they don’t want to see all the greedy relatives inherit if they don’t stay together—relatives that will go so far as to poison them and cut their brake lines to keep them apart. But the more time Pandora and Michael spend together, the more they find they have in common. There are a few steamy love scenes and a warm happily ever after that made it a very enjoyable read.
I did have problems with the hero and heroine not contacting the police until Pandora received a phone call warning her to be careful. There was no real justification for not contacting the police, and I found that annoying, but it was still a good read.
