Additional Information

In this enthralling new novel from the author of The List (a “smartly paced and dishy debut,” Publishers Weekly, starred review), a young woman working in the high-end art world stumbles upon a rare antique—and an irresistible man with a dark past.

After eight years in the American Furniture department at Christie’s, twenty-nine-year-old Carolyn Everett is a rising star. But one wrong decision and a scandal leaves her unemployed and broken. Desperate to piece her life back together, Carolyn leaves New York City to work in a tiny antique store in Newport, Rhode Island.

One day at a small county auction, she discovers a piece of Middle Eastern pottery, which she purchases for twenty dollars on a hunch. Curiosity sends her on a mission to find its original owner, and she eventually winds up in the town’s United States Navy Base—and in a relationship with notorious womanizer Marine Sergeant Tyler Ford, who claims the relic came to him as a gift from his translator during the early days of the Iraq War. From two different worlds, Tyler and Carolyn become obsessed with the mysterious relic—and each other—until the origin of the art comes under intense scrutiny and reveals a darker side of Tyler’s past. Carolyn still feels like there’s more to the story, but can she risk attaching herself to another scandal—and does she truly know the man she’s fallen in love with?

The Price of Inheritance is a rare find of a novel. Engaging, suspenseful, and full of intrigue, it delves into the elite world of big bucks deals and dangerous black market promises, where one woman must decide whether she’s willing to gamble her greatest asset—her heart.

A special thank you to Atria Books and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

THE PRICE OF INHERITANCE by Karin Tanabe is an intriguing novel into the world of contemporary art crime, and historical aspects, while weaving a tangled web of suspense, romance and mystery.

Carolyn, age twenty-nine, single, a Princeton graduate-- resides in New York, a senior specialist in American Furniture at prestigious Christie's, a name and place that speaks of extraordinary art, unparalleled service and expertise, as well as international glamour.

Accustomed to a fast pace life, with high stakes glamour of arts, Carolyn has buried herself in her work at Christie’s, driven to excel, involved with auctions, private sales and prestigious and affluent clients with emphasis on Post War and Contemporary, Impressionist, and Modern Art, and Antiquities.

However, after eight years at Christie’s she finds herself in the middle of a... Read more
I’ve always had a fascination with the auction world, especially Christie’s and Sotheby’s, which is why I picked up The Price of Inheritance. The book starts out in New York, fueled by the crazy world of auctions, but then moves to the wealthy beaches of Newport, Rhode Island. There was a bit of an Edith Wharton feeling to the parts set in Newport, with all the old money and scandal, but with a very modern vibe brought by the characters from all walks of life. The main character, Carolyn, is someone you will definitely cheer for, as she tries to carve a place for herself among the wealthy in Newport, and so is her love interest Marine Captain Tyler Ford. She spends much of the book falling in love with him while investigating him, which makes for a sexy and suspenseful cat and mouse chase. Smart and a page-turner. Definitely five stars.
