Publisher Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents Legacy, a new novel of a mother and a daughter, of ambition and romance, and of a traumatic past reawakened by a terrifying threat…

Adrian Rizzo was seven when she met her father for the first time. That was the day he nearly killed her—before her mother, Lina, stepped in.

Soon after, Adrian was dropped off at her grandparents’ house in Maryland, where she spent a long summer drinking lemonade, playing with dogs, making a new best friend—and developing the stirrings of a crush on her friend’s ten-year-old brother. Lina, meanwhile, traveled the country promoting her fitness brand and turning it into a billion-dollar business. There was no point in dwelling on the past.

A decade later, Adrian has created her own line of yoga and workout videos, following in Lina’s footsteps but intent on maintaining creative control. And she’s just as cool-headed and ambitious as her mother. They aren’t close, but they’re cordial—as long as neither crosses the other.

But while Lina dismisses the death threats that Adrian starts getting as a routine part of her daughter’s growing celebrity, Adrian can’t help but find the vicious rhymes unsettling. Year after year, they keep arriving—the postmarks changing, but the menacing tone the same. They continue after she returns to Maryland and becomes reacquainted with Raylan, her childhood crush, all grown up and as gorgeously green-eyed as ever. Sometimes it even seems like the terrifying messages are indeed routine, like nothing will come of them. Until the murders start, and the escalation begins…

Enjoyable characters, and a bit of love. The dramatic violence was predictable, but it was just as I thought it would be in the end. Nice to see strong female characters, I would recommend.

Disappointed with Nora Roberts

Didn’t like all the killings and the brutality involved. Wanted more love scenes. More making love in detail.
Loved the dogs. Loved the town the kids.
I didn’t like the whole fitness empire. It wasn’t as real with a mother daughter duo.
Like the PI. Loved the grandfather. I wasn’t her best work. I’ve enjoyed better.

Way too long…but good story

Typical Nora Roberts. Extended families and lots of drama. Good storyline but way too much excruciating minutiae of daily routines that you must just page through. It finally all came together towards the end. All and all a feel-good read with a happy ending
