A surprise inheritance. A cache of family secrets. A choice that will change her life forever.

Lillian Doyle has lived her entire high-society life with her widowed mother, believing her father died long ago. But when news arrives that her estranged father only recently passed away--in jail--Lillian is startled to find that the man has left a business and all of his possessions to her, making her a rather unusual heiress.

When she goes to take possession of her father's house in a backwoods Georgia town, the dilapidated structure is already occupied by another woman who claims it was promised to her son, Jonah. In her attempts to untangle the mess, Lillian will discover not only a family she never knew she had but a family business that is more than meets the eye--and has put a target on her back.

To discover the truth and take hold of the independence she's always dreamed of, she'll have to make friends with adversaries and strangers--especially Jonah, the dusty and unrefined cowboy who has secret aspirations of his own.

Guide to the setting (Dawsonville) of The Swindler’s Daughter

A note from Stephenia:

Hi y’all! One of my favorite parts about writing a new story is digging into the history of the setting. For The Swindler’s Daughter, my research took me to the town of Dawsonville, GA. It’s a neat place with a lot of stories to tell. If you ever get the chance, I think it would be an interesting place to visit. So, I put together a travel brochure with some sites you might like to see in the area. All tied to the book, of course. What about you? Have you ever visited any of these places? If not, which one would you like to see most?
