Item description for There is a Season (Cheney & Shiloh: The Inheritance #3) by Lynn Morris & Gilbert Morris...
Overview A holiday in the warm environs of Florida comes as an answer to prayer to Cheney and Shiloh Irons-Winslow. New York City is experiencing a brutal winter, and the demands of Cheney?s medical practice have nearly overwhelmed her. So they set sail on Shiloh's clipper, 'Locke's Day Dream', and head to Sangria House, a gracious mansion in old St. Augustine.
Arriving wet and cold in the middle of a rainstorm, they find the house locked and deserted; obviously no preparations have been made to receive them. But they decide to make the best of it and settle in with good grace and humor in anticipation of a relaxing time together... Then they make a horrifying discovery, and Cheney and Shiloh immediately suspect foul play. Sangria House was supposed to be a place of rest and renewal. Instead, it seems to be harboring disturbing secrets.
Solving the crime?without falling victim themselves--will require all the resources they can muster.

There is a Season (Cheney and Shiloh: The Inheritance) Jul 13, 2006
As always the authors, Lynn & Gilbert Morris have done well again. The story holds your interest and the continuing history of Cheney's family enfolding is fun to read. My only suggestion is that I would like to see Cheney & Shiloh's relationship develop more.
Do married couples act like this? Aug 12, 2005
Cheney and Shiloh take time off to take Cheney's parents to Florida to recupriate from winter illness. But a body is found in the wine cellar and they have to figure out who killed the owner of the house and how they did it. The pages are packed with the funniest dialog between husbands and wives I have ever read. This mystery keeps you in suspense and laughing until the very end.
great book even after long wait Aug 2, 2005
I have read all of the Cheney Duvall series and love them all.The long wait for this new book was worth it.It is intriguing and easy to understand.I always learn something new and fascinating by all the research done in the writing of the book.As usual I think the new Cheney Duvall book is a hit.
1800's CSI Cheney and Shilo style! Jul 29, 2005
I waited very impatiently for this newest installment to the Inheritance series and I'm completely satisfied with it! Once again, another great book from the Morris duo. I can only hope for more Cheney and Shiloh books! I'd hate to see them go!
Trying to escape the brutal NY winter, Cheney and Shiloh take Cheney's parents and her brother Dev's family to winter in the balmy South. When they arrive at the house that Victoria has rented, they discover a body in the cellar and so much more! I love reading about Cheney's pure enthusiasm when faced with the prospect of doing an autopsy and looking at slides of "liver juice and eyeball jelly" (as Minerva puts it). I also thought it was very clever that Grinder's will involved the use of Shakespeare's "Macbeth". Great book, highly recommended!
Great new book in the series Jul 13, 2005
For those of you who have read and loved all of the "Cheney Duvall, MD" books and the "Cheney & Shiloh: The Inheritance" books, you will not be disappointed with this continuation in the series. I could hardly put it down until I finished reading it!
The great things about this book are the same in the rest: the author has a gift for description, from the character's attire, post-Civil War mannerisms and etiquette, to the setting the book takes place in. It really makes the reader be able to acurately picture exactly what is going on. Also, each character is very well developed with their thoughts and emotions and you find yourself curious about every single one.
"There is a Season" includes almost all of the main characters from the previous two novels. Cheney and Shiloh, of course, but also Cheney's parents, Dev and Victoria with their 3 adopted children (Dart, Solange, and Lisette), Bain Winslow, plus our favorite hired help like Sketes, Fiona, and Jauncy. The plot was different (murder wasn't really something Cheney had experienced until the last novel) and intriguing.
The only disappointment I had was that there is not very much about the relationship between Cheney and Shiloh. Cheney didn't even personally enter the book until a few chapters had gone by. Maybe the first two books of "Cheney & Shiloh: The Inheritance" had more relationship development simply because it was the beginning of the Irons-Winslows' marriage. Dev was also absent until the end of the book, so there was hardly any information on the Dev-Victoria relationship or what Dev thinks of his new introduction to parenthood with his adopted kids.
Overall, it was a great read and I will read it many times again. I hope there will be more in the series!
