The Inheritance | George E. Smith

Excerpt from Chapter 7 – “The Breakfast Meeting”:

MAGDALENA PROVIDED A HUGE BREAKFAST buffet of
fried eggs, sausage, biscuits, fresh fruit and steaming hot coffee
for the heiress and the ranch manager. Bright sunshine warmed
the chilly desert morning air as Lady Caroline and Ken Battle
enjoyed their coffee at the patio table.

Dr. Donaldson had alerted lawyer Cyrus Pender of Lady Caroline’s
arrival so that a Rock Springs reading of Sir Geoffrey’s will
could take place as soon as the parties involved found it convenient.
Lady Caroline wanted the document read as soon as possible
and asked Ken Battle when it would be convenient for him to
go into town. Surprised, Ken questioned why he would be
required to attend the reading of her father’s will.
