Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Harriet Westaway - better known as Hal - makes ends meet as a tarot reader, but she doesn't believe in the power of her trade. If she did, what would the cards say about the choice that lies ahead of her? When Hal receives a mysterious and unexpected letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance, she knows that it wasn't meant for her because Mrs. Westaway is not her grandmother. Struggling with crippling debt, Hal is presented with a difficult choice: ignore the letter, or use her cold-reading skills to potentially claim the money and change her life. After a loan shark pays Hal a threatening visit, she decides to attend Mrs. Westaway's funeral. She meets the family at Trepassen House, the Westaways' country estate. Once there, Hal discovers more secrets than she could have ever imagined. There is something very, very wrong with this family, and somehow Hal and the inheritance are at the center of it.
