Inheritance by Nora Roberts

Inheritance by Nora Roberts Book Summary


Inheritance is the first in The Lost Bride Trilogy by #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts—a tale of tragedies, loves found and lost, and a family haunted for generations.

1806: Astrid Poole sits in her bridal clothes, overwhelmed with happiness. But before her marriage can be consummated, she is murdered, and the circle of gold torn from her finger. Her last words are a promise to Collin never to leave him…

Graphic designer Sonya MacTavish is stunned to learn that her late father had a twin he never knew about—and that her newly discovered uncle, Collin Poole, has left her almost everything he owned, including a majestic Victorian house on the Maine coast, which the will stipulates she must live in it for at least three years. Her engagement recently broken, she sets off to find out why the boys were separated at birth—and why it was all kept secret until a genealogy website brought it to light.

Trey, the young lawyer who greets her at the sprawling clifftop manor, notes Sonya’s unease—and acknowledges that yes, the place is haunted…but just a little. Sure enough, Sonya finds objects moved and music playing out of nowhere. She sees a painting by her father inexplicably hanging in her deceased uncle’s office, and a portrait of a woman named Astrid, whom the lawyer refers to as “the first lost bride.” It’s becoming clear that Sonya has inherited far more than a house. She has inherited a centuries-old curse, and a puzzle to be solved if there is any hope of breaking it…

Inheritance.. It had no ending. What a scam!!!!

Cha Ching grandma

The inheritance. Absolutely loved this book. Not the ending, needs a second sequel. Have to know what happened. Please continue the story!!

Lovely new trilogy. This is was a fun book. Written differently from most NR books but its essence is similar. Worth the read.


Could not put it down !!. The mermaid painting with crystal ball , and another world inside of it and do on … it’s the perfect description of this book ! A world , in side of a world !!! Next please !!!

Bad ending. The ending is horrible actually no ending no resolution….will never read this author again.

Inheritance. Great story line and attraction to love makes this an interesting read. Keeps you turning page after page!


Sucked me in. The only think I dislike about NR books is the fact we have to wait so very long for them… I need the rest. Ow


The Inheritence. Usually even books with sequels are stand alone. Not this one. I’m so upset I’ll be darned if I buy more.


Great history story. If you like strong women and antiques with a hint of ghosts then this book is for you.


Inheritance. I was very disappointed in this book! I will not buy another Nora Robert’s book….ever!

1of 3. Wonderful beginning


A great read is an understatement!. Nora never disappoints!! The story strolls then races then gently drops you off a cliff at the end! I love it and hate it at the same time!


Spoooky. So good and scary enough I look over my shoulders. Kept me interested the whole time. I can’t wait for the next one.


I’d wait if I were you. It’s honestly not worth the buy right now. With the way she’s writing this particular series it’s better to wait until all three of the books have been released. This way you can read a complete story. Also you’ll have the bonus of them being cheaper. Each book is going to take about a year to publish according to her website. Why pay $15 for an e-book when you’re not gonna be able to complete the story for three years just wait for them to go on sale save yourself the money and the hassle and the frustration.


terrible ending, don’t waste your time or money. Read through this ridiculous premise of a book, wanted to see how it would resolve. After 528 pages no resolve at all. Never reading a Nora Robert’s book again.

Liz Hale

Slow & predictable. The story seems to just go in circles. Not much character development. NOT Her best work.

Love to Tango

Is there a Book 2 ?. Come on Nora Roberts, what gives. I was so engrossed with this book, could not put it down, only to discover there is NO ENDING to this book. You are left wondering what happened. Very frustrating and disappointing.


Nora is the GOAT!. But, why did I read this book??? And now have to wait for the next one! Nora is one of the best - if not THE BEST - author of our time! She has incredible ability in blending several styles of writing in one book. I’m always enthralled when I open a book of hers and this one is no different. Now, I wait for book 2.

It’s me, Lena

Can’t wait for the next one!!. This was a fun book. I can’t wait for the next one!


Love to read. Nice read

Sheri Shrimp

Terrible ending…... I loved everything about the read until the ending. If there is no sequel, I will chalk it up to complete disappointment. Never have I felt this way about a Nora Roberts book. Save your money!


Great read!. Soo good I couldn’t put it down. My only regret is that I have to wait for the next book.


Simply magical. Nora Roberts never fails to draw you in and leave you wanting more!

Jekaplan florida

Epic haunting. This is a great book! Nora’s writing is so vivid in this book, you feel like you are in this house, filled with ghosts, good and evil, and all that happens. The abrupt ending has me worried that there isn’t another book to follow and finish the story.


Great read. I’ve been reading Nora since her first book. This novel reminds me of all those original books I couldn’t put down. The kind that you stay up reading even when you have to work the next day.

Grandma JMH

Classic Strong Creative Women with Classy Men. The haunted house and 200 year legacy creates interesting intrigue as the back drop for budding romance. Lots left undiscovered makes this next trilogy fun to anticipate reading.


Disappointing. It was a fun read, but the ending was very disappointing. Nora Roberts just left the reader in the lurch. It was like she just stopped and decided not to finish the story. The author did not leave you wanting more with a teaser, the story just ended. I thought I was missing a final chapter…too bad!


Captivating from the first chapter. As always an awesome read.

Inheritance. Loved it! The twist & turns, the unknown, the good, the bad and the ugly! Amazing, Nora hits another home-run! Now I need to wait for #2!!!! Ahhhh.


Fantastic and riveting, can’t wait till the next one.. Loved all of it.


Can’t wait for the next book. It such a great book


How long will you release the rest of the story?’. Loved the book but will there be a second book to finish the story?!


This book literally just stops. Good book and intriguing story, if a bit corny at times. But be forewarned it just ends abruptly. I realize it’s a trilogy but her other trilogies at least have a resolution to the smaller story. This one doesn’t.


Wonderful. Oh such a great book can’t wait to read book 2 And 3 Such a brilliant writer thank you Nora


Another Hit Trilogy!. Imagine you discovered your fiancé in bed with your cousin and cancelled your wedding. He sabotaged you at work until you quit your job and decided to work on your own. After all that trauma and change, a stranger arrived at your door and informed you that your deceased father had a twin brother he never knew, and that twin had just passed away. He had left you his house in Maine, as well as other assets, the only condition being that you would have to live in the house for at least three years. The uncanny thing was that you discovered that your father had drawn pictures of this house and brother, despite never having seen or been aware of his connection to either. Would you pack up your belongings, rent your house, and move from Boston to a small town in Maine to live in a haunted mansion which had been in your family for generations? In Inheritance by Nora Robert’s, that is exactly what Sonya MacTavish did. This is the first book in The Lost Bride Trilogy and is expertly written in the author’s distinctively playful style. This is a story of self-discovery and romance with a paranormal twist. There is a mystery to solve to break a family curse as well as plenty of ghosts, both friendly and hostile. The story ends in a cliffhanger which definitely entices the reader to anticipate the release of the next book in the trilogy. I definitely recommend this book for lovers of romance and paranormal/fantasy stories. I am voluntarily submitting this honest review after reading an advanced complementary copy of this novel thanks to Netgalley and St. Martin’s Press.

Super sophie 1000

Great book. Really enjoyed this book, can’t wait for book 2! You got me back into reading, thank you


Best Ever. This is a great story. Left me hanging wanting the next book. I love everything about this story. Just need MORE. Thanks Nora. For those who said “No Ending”. It’s BOOK ONE. There are more to come.


Inheritance. Great book...terrible ending!!


Fun read, unexpected end. I didn’t realize it ends with a beginning


Not Nora’s Best Work but Entertaining Enough. I usually love her trilogies but this one was weak and lacked the deep character development that Nora usually produces. Interesting story but not gripping. I’ll read the next 2, hopefully they’re more developed.

Stena B

Ok. Repetitive


Inheritance is great . She is living her family’s sad past. Beautifully written! Descriptive but not so detailed that you get lost in them. Suspenseful but not a horror story that gives you nightmares. The ending: wow! Need the next one now. Please.

Pooooooooooo Eli

Inheritance. Absolutely love it!


Great book!. Mysterious, draws and keeps your attention, with a splash of love and sex. Not like her usual trilogies that follow one book per person and have way more sex scenes; this book focuses on the storyline completely. I can’t wait for the next book!


Love at First Ghost!. I can not wait for the other books! A goshtly good time.


Best ever!. My favorite Nora Roberts book is always the one I just finished reading. I’ve read this one twice already. Guess I’ll take a breath before reading it again. Unfailingly crafted with heart, adventure, humor and wisdoms, meticulously bound between the covers.


Ghosts, really?. I kept hoping this book would reveal an actual mystery where an actual person was haunting the manor. Many don’t believe in ghosts so the book seemed like a fairy tale instead of literature.

A.M. Parrott

Excellent book with surprises. Very good read that keeps you on your toes the entire time. I can’t wait to read Book 2.

Lady Fannie of Omaha

Inheritance. Kept me riveted. BUT, NOW I can’t find the next two books in the trilogy. BUMMER. Wish they would let us know what’s coming next. Very disappointed that I CAN’T CONTINUE.


Enjoyable reading. Kept me sucked into the plot to the end . Did not want to set it down

Bonnie’s Opinion. Well, that didn’t finish like I expected. Hope the 2nd book in the series comes soon! Just enough magic to keep me interested but not over the top.


Inheritance. Excellent book can’t wait for the next


Warning. Book is too good, you’ll be devastated to wait for the 2nd. This book was so good that I’m devastated I have to wait a year for the second.

Harry Dubya

The most unfulfilling ending ever.. Good storyline, good characters, got a little slow about halfway through, and then abruptly ended with no conclusion. The sequel isn’t supposed to come out for another year, at which point, I will have forgotten all about this one. This formula works for a mini series when the next episode comes out in a week… It does not work for a book! At least not for me.


Great read. Waiting for book 2 I hope will come soon.

Inheritance. I really liked most everything, except i was hoping there would another one to finish the story

Loved it!. Wonderful start to a new trilogy. Sonya MacTavish has just inherited from an unknown uncle a mansion, but that is only the start of the mystery. Her father was a twin and separated at birth from his brother, but why she wonders. Her uncle will left her not only with the mansion but funds for the upkeep, mysteries and a few ghosts, with the stipulation that she needs to live there 3 years. Trey who was a friend and lawyer of the deceased Collin Poole shows Sonya around the place and admits that it is haunted and the mansion nickname is the Lost Brides. The name was given due to all the brides that died on their wedding day, including her uncle’s bride. As Sonya settles in little unexplained things happen, some good, a few annoying and some scary but she isn’t going to let the ghosts drive her out of her home. The story has the typical magic that draws in throughout the book. Parts reminded me of the show Ghosts, which I love. And as with the majority of Nora’s trilogy, the story continues with a cliffhanger. I just hope book 2 will release soon. I switched back and forth between book and audiobook and reread or relistened to parts in the audiobook. The narrator was fantastic, but with the book was easier to backtrack when needed. Thank you NetGalley for this eARC. I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an Advance Reader Copy of this story. #NetGalley #Inheritance #StMartinPress #MacmillanAudio #TheLostBrideTrilogy #NoraRoberts This is a review of the audiobook.


Dolly. This is not a Nora Robert’s book. Very disappointing with the storyline carried way too long. Premise was great disappointed not really developed.


Beyond enjoyable!. OMG! I’m not even sure what I want to say but this surpassed my expectations. I enjoy reading most everything that Ms Roberts/Ms Robb writes but this was beyond enjoyable. It has everything from romance, betrayal, great primary and secondary characters with a touch of spookiness thrown in. I so want to be friends with Sonya and Cleo! And, don’t even get me started about the ending! I’m not sure how I’ll be able to wait for the next one! This is one series that every Nora Robert’s fan should have on their TBR pile!


Excellent first book in newest series.. Loved this newest trilogy from one of my go to authors. Ghosties, curses, love, romance and of course an evil witch bring this story to the top of my “can’t wait til the next” list. Add to your TBR list,and don’t miss this one. Excellent!


Broken Promise. Interesting characters, fun dialogue, plus a plot that builds nicely toward a climax. Except there isn't one. The book simply stops in the middle of the story, and leaves all that hanging. As this is said to be a series, perhaps we should all wait until the whole series is published before we spend another dime. What a disappointment!
