A Rather Lovely Inheritance by C.A.Belmond

Penny Nichols is an American working on a big-budget film as an historical researcher in the south of France when she receives a phone call that will change her life.

Penny, named after her British great-aunt, Penelope, finds herself the recipient of a rather lovely inheritance. Or so she thinks. Penny, now in London, meets relatives she hasn't seen since she was a child; some of them she wishes to have never met up with again! Penny's fine-honed research skills are put to good use when she realizes there's something fishy going on with Aunt Penelope's two wills, one British and one French. She soon discovers tales of double lives, greedy cousins and historical treasures that will take her all across Europe in a fancy sports car, no less. Along the way, Penny also discovers love, of course.

A sweet, quick read with a rather Bridget Jones heroine - thoroughly enjoyable.
