Summary

A powerful new stand-alone novel from global best seller Nora Roberts - a story of a mother, a daughter and a traumatic past reawakened.

The first time Adrian met her father was the day he tried to kill her....

Adrian Rizzo didn't have the easiest childhood, to put it mildly, but she's worked hard to put it behind her, and to the outside world she is a beautiful young woman with a successful, high-profile career and a wonderful family and friends.

When, out of the blue, she receives a death threat in the post, she is shocked but puts it down to someone's jealousy of her success and tries to forget about it. But Adrian doesn't realise that it's more than just spite. Someone is very, very angry about her happy life and will stop at nothing to bring it all crashing down.

Fantastic Narration

I absolutely loved this audiobook. The narrator, January LaVoy, did a fantastic job putting voices to the various characters. The flow of her narration was excellent. One of my pet hates when listening to audible is when they switch between the male/female voices and it just jars for lack of a better word. There were no such issues here. I especially liked how January changed the voice for the teenage Adrian as she grew to adulthood. The story itself, well it’s Nora Roberts – an author I always feel I can rely on. If I’m being 100% honest I do prefer her books where there is a more mystical element but that is down to personal taste and in no way affected my enjoyment of Legacy. I have to finish by saying that in future if I’m in two minds over whether or not to buy an audiobook the name of January LaVoy as the narrator will be the deciding factor for me.

Enjoyable

Nora Robert's books now tend to be as much about people finding their tribe or their chosen family as much as about romance or suspense. This was an enjoyable addition to her collection. The romance was a bit of a slow burn. While the villain was predictable, there was a nice build up of tension leading to the climax at the end. well narrated
