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."

Review:

""The List" is mandatory reading for anyone who wonders about the impact of new media on Washington's political culture. Tanabe has written a novel that is delicious fun and incredibly revealing about life at the intersection of politics and journalism."--Nicolle Wallace "New York Times bestselling author of Eighteen Acres "

""The List "is a wonderfully witty insider's romp through Washington. Karin Tanabe has as sharp a tongue as she does an eye for detail, about everything from political scandal to office politics. And I thought New York was a tough town!"--Cristina Alger "author of The Darlings "

"This absorbing, quick-turning story takes us behind the doors of the big auction houses into the homes of the art-collecting elite and onto the international marketplace with sure-handedness, and in fascinating detail. Karin Tanabe writes with passion, intelligence, and a lot of wit, and the book is insanely difficult to put down."--Jessica Lott "The Rest of Us "

With "The Price of Inheritance", Karin Tanabe pulls off a triple-coup: she gives us a juicy insider's look at the high-stakes auction business, a late-coming-of-age (and enticingly New York) love story, and a truly suspenseful mystery that crosses borders from Rhode Island to Iraq. Any one of these on its own would have been a compelling read. But all three at once? I couldn't put it down."--Allison Lynn "author of Now You See It "

"The List" is a breezy, dishy romp through Washington, DC politics, journalism, and scandal a witty and caffeinated glimpse into a world few of us ever see, let alone know as intimately as Karin Tanabe surely does. But underneath the considerable pleasures of its glimmering surface, it's a surprisingly moving coming of age story about a young woman navigating the bumpy terrain between ambition and ethics, between her hunger for professional success and the quiet truth of her own heart. --Lauren Fox "author of Friends Like Us and Still Life with Husband ""
