Book review: Legacy

Legacy by Nora Roberts
Many thanks to NetGalley, Little Brown Book Group UK, and Piatkus for letting me see an advance reader’s copy of Legacy, which is one of three recent/soon-to-be releases with ‘legacy’ in the title.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, which starts when the main character Adrian (female) is only seven years old. It touches on her life for the next ten years, and then the following ten years in more detail.

The slowburn suspense, which increased as the story progressed, had me gripped. This is the first novel I’ve read in a long time that has kept me turning the pages, staying up late, and sneaking in extra chapters whenever I can.

The characters are great, I loved them all. But I did get confused with some of the gender fluid names, and I got a bit lost as to which character was speaking. There was also a lot of head-hopping, which didn’t help me either.

It is a great tale, though, with a lovely setting at Traveler’s Creek for the most part. I’ll certainly look out for more stories like this one from Nora Roberts.
