The Swindler’s Daughter by Stephenia H. McGee.
About the Book
A surprise inheritance. A cache of family secrets. A choice that will change her life forever.
Lillian Doyle has lived her entire high-society life with her widowed mother, believing her father died long ago. But when news arrives that her estranged father only recently passed away–in jail–Lillian is startled to find that the man has left a business and all of his possessions to her, making her a rather unusual heiress.
When she goes to take possession of her father’s house in a backwoods Georgia town, the dilapidated structure is already occupied by another woman who claims it was promised to her son, Jonah. In her attempts to untangle the mess, Lillian will discover not only a family she never knew she had but a family business that is more than meets the eye–and has put a target on her back.
To discover the truth and take hold of the independence she’s always dreamed of, she’ll have to make friends with adversaries and strangers–especially Jonah, the dusty and unrefined cowboy who has secret aspirations of his own.

The Swindler’s Daughter by Stephenia H. McGee is a historical romance from Revell.
I’ve wanted to read one of Stephenia McGee’s books for awhile, so when I had a chance to review The Swindler’s Daughter, I was thrilled. It sounded like just the type of book I would enjoy … and I did!
I loved the enemies-to-lovers romance between Lillian and Jonah. The empathy the author created for both brought tears to my eyes. Their spiritual struggles were so relatable, too. And how they grew to care for one another is so sweet. Then there was the mystery, which had me guessing until the end. I wanted everything to work out for these characters I had grow to love.
If you enjoy historical romance with a bit of intrigue, then grab a copy of The Swindler’s Daughter. It’s a touching story that I’m so glad I had the chance to read. I hope you’ll enjoy it, too.
