Storyline

Because Felsham Manor is attracting many curiosity seekers based on its impending sale, Lovejoy uses the opportunity to stock the house with antiques, both real and reproduction, to sell to well-to-do customers. Beautiful Charlotte Cavendish, the "Son" in Cavendish and Son objects to Lovejoy's occupation of the house prior to auction, and is relentless in her efforts to get rid of him. As a sidebar, Lady Alfreson, an octogenarian aristocrat apparently suffering from senility, is hounded by her son-in-law, a ruthless compulsive gambler, as he plots to have her institutionalized so he can take over her considerable estate. Written by duke1029
