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…

    Loved it. It had family, drama, love, mystery, and it flowed beautifully! It made you sad, happy, & intrigued. I cried and laughed, and I loved the unexpected. I couldn’t predict what was going to happen next like you can with a lot of books. The dogs were just genius!
  • Loved the book and all the details about friendship, loyalty and importance of family.

    Nora Roberts can tell a story that brings you right into the setting. Her writing and descriptive powers had me sharing the scenes with the characters. When the characters were angry I was angry; when they were sad I was sad; and for the first time in a long time, the scenes of joy brought moisture to my eyes. A must read! A word of warning tho… Get a lot of rest and start this book fresh from that rest, because once started you won’t want to put it down until you finish it!

    Is the book formulaic? Yes, but but the formula works for Mrs. Roberts. No surprises, but fans will enjoy this nice comfortable read from their queen.
  • Another suspenseful story…

    Riveting story that keeps you on the edge of your seat! Although you can surmise the direction of the story, the way it twists through will keep you wondering. A truly great story of inner strength, resilience, community and love that will totally entertain.

    I stopped reading at page 400 something. No plot. I’ve read many of Nora’s books. She must have had a ghost writer.

    This is one of the most engaging stories I ever read. I read for pleasure. The characters were so vivid and believable. Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors. The book is long but I never wanted it to end.
