Castle of the Shimmering Sands by Georgette Overton
Naive and sublimely happy with the essentials of life, Valerie Hansen finds herself an heiress and a potential murder victim.
Valerie Hansen, a descendant of the Hightower nobility of England, has been raised to find joy in the simpler ways of life until she finds herself in a unique position. Her missing uncle, presumed dead, has left her the object of hostility by a family she has only known from the stories of her grandmother. She must determine who to trust within the family and those who serve them, including the mysterious man who was closest to her uncle and has been stalking her within her own home in the East. The accidents that befall her, the hidden passages and rooms, and the unusual history of the Hightower family come together in murder and mystery with a touch of humor.
