Book Review – A Chance Inheritance By Carolyn Brown

  • Three cousins who’ve grown apart
  • The love of a grandmother that brings them back together
  • A fresh start they all deserve

Upon inheriting their grandmother’s home and family bait shop, three cousins—Lanie, Jodi, and Becky Cornell—return to Catfish, Texas, hoping to find the fresh start they all need. Turns out living as roommates in Granny Lizzie’s tiny two-bedroom house and running the Catfish Fisherman’s Hut isn’t at all like the idyllic summers they spent as children on the banks of the Red River. The days are long and hot, the tourists demanding and rude. And then there’s Chris Adams, a local river guide who seems to have eyes only for Becky.

But Lizzie’s death has set in motion a chain of events that will cause a new generation of Cornell women to come together. And thanks to this chance inheritance, some local fishermen, and the love of their grandmother, the Cornell cousins discover that sometimes an ending is really the beginning of a brand-new happily ever after.

My Review

Lainie, Jodi and Becky are Lizzie Cornell’s granddaughters. All 3 of them inherited their grandmother’s home and bait shop and they return to Catfish to grieve her passing. While they were there, they realise how much the Fishing Hut meant to the locals and they want to continue the legacy their grandmother have created.

This book is a short story about 3 cousins who returned home to find their new footing in their life. It is a story of family relationship, love and memories of them with their grandmother. Overall it is a sweet read to me.
