The Will by Rebecca Reid

Happy Friday! Today I’m on tour with The Will with Random Things Tours. This is the first book I’ve read by Rebecca Reid. I’m so grateful to be part of book tours because I get to know authors and books that I would not normally have found.

The Mordaunts aren't like most families…

For one, their family home is Roxborough Hall - a magnificent, centuries-old mansion in the Norfolk countryside. For another, the house isn't passed down from parent to child - but rather to the family member deemed most worthy.

Cecily Mordaunt is dead. On the evening of her funeral, her family will gather for dinner and each will be given a letter, revealing who is the next custodian of Roxborough Hall.

The house is a burden, a millstone, a full-time job…but they all want it. And some are willing do anything to get it.

One family. Eight letters. Who will get what they deserve?


A house that has been in the same family for generations is passed on when the current owner dies via letters. This is the plot of The Will.

There are many characters and many secrets in this family. Drawn together for the funeral of their mother/grandmother, the family members wonder if they will get the house. The reader gets a view of each person which allows you to see their motivation for wanting the house. It also allows you to see the family secrets. I loved reading this book because of the constant surprises.
