A Will and A Way
3.5 Stars

When her beloved uncle Jolley dies, Pandora is not only devastated but also furious as the eccentric old coot has left her his entire fortune with one condition … she must share it with Michael Donahue, a distant cousin by marriage who has always been her nemesis. Michael is none to happy to learn that he will have to spend six months in close quarters with the one woman who rubs him the wrong way … or is it that they rub each other the right way?

Michael and Pandora have great chemistry and their love/hate banter is entertaining. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the enemies to lovers trope is one of my favorites. Despite their initial animosity, there is thankfully very little angst as Pandora and Michael communicate with one another rather than falling into the silly misunderstandings trap.

The minor suspense plot adds an additional layer of tension to the story and the romance although the explanation and resolution are predictable.

As this is one of Nora’s earlier standalone contemporary romances, there are certain things that make it feel dated such as the fact that Michael and Pandora are in dire need of cellphones.

All in all, an easygoing read for those in need of some lighter fare. ( )

Book description
It was worse than winning the lottery--much worse. This bequest might mean more money, but the strings attached had Pandora McVie tied up in knots. Respecting Uncle Jolley's last wishes meant spending time isolated in the Catskills with Michael Donahue, her least favorite--though best looking--distant relative and co-beneficiary. Living with a carrot-topped termagant wasn't Michael's idea of a good time, either, but he realized they were stuck. Jolley was a matchmaker to the end--and apparently for some time beyond. What could happen in six months? Michael answered that one himself: almost anything.
