AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Trisha Kent, by inheritance a silent partner in a Queensland (Australia) furniture firm owned by distant relatives-by-marriage, leaves Melbourne to meet the family she's never seen, and to decide how she should vote in a proposed takeover. Awaiting her in Queensland: a brace of brothers at the firm's helm; the firm's attractive accountant, who'll teach Trisha to ride horseback, and then some; a paraplegic craftsman, as bitter as his wife is loving; and the aggrieved wife of Cousin Julian–who had not only dipped into the till and skipped off for distant parts, but had actually tried to murder his spouse. Before the sort-out, there'll be a murder and an attempted one, arson, a gun-barrel confrontation and the work of an exceptional mare who earns her oats.'
