Deadly Legacy by Margaret Daley Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations Series Book Seven This is also part of The Inheritance Multi-Author Series Lacey St. John felt truly blessed. After her husband's death three years ago, she'd been living in unsavory areas of New Orleans. Working extra jobs to make a better life for her and her son. Then out of nowhere, she finds out she has inherited the home she grew up in—which Mr. Hopewell had turned into a bed and breakfast. Sheriff Ryan McNeil usually had a pretty quiet job, until now. Between burglaries in the area and a death—his deputies and himself were kept busy. Too busy, as he wanted to get to know his new neighbor better. Life wasn't quite as wonderful as Lacey had hoped it to be. But as her handsome neighbor reminded her, the Lord is in control. This book is part of a multi-author collection where each story starts with the characters receiving some type of inheritance from the billionaire, Mr. Hopewell. Great romance story with a heaping side of suspense.

Deadly Legacy was a very exciting story! I loved the setting and that Lacey returned to what was once her home. It was filled with interesting characters, such as Mr. and Mrs. Bell, who currently run the bed and breakfast. Lacey had to learn how to settle back into life with her son after a disastrous marriage and difficult time after her husband died. Things were finally looking up, especially as she reconnected with a man she knew as a child. The relationship that built between Ryan and Lacy was great and made for a nice romantic read. Add in danger from an unknown source and it put just the right amount of uneasy tension into the book. This was an enjoyable romantic suspense novel. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

When Lacey St. John receives the letter from Mr. Harold Hopewell’s attorney naming her as the new owner of the Calvert Cove Bed and Breakfast in Calvert County in Maryland, she hopes this is her chance to turn her life around and provide a home for her eight-year-old son, Shaun. The childhood residence she’d grown up in has become a thriving bed and breakfast and now it miraculously belongs to her. Lots of memories, some good, others not so much, surround her converted childhood home. When neighbor Sheriff Ryan McNeil’s dog, Mick, finds Shaun during a game of hide-and-seek with his mom, it’s love at first sight for boy and dog. Ryan introduces himself, and Lacey remembers him as the boy-next-door that her older sister had a crush on. Ryan is working a series of burglaries in the area and strange things begin to happen at the bed-and-breakfast. Will Ryan solve the burglary ring before something happens to Lacey and Shaun? As the three spend more time together, will things work out for them to become a family? Author Margaret Daley is aces when it comes to writing suspense with a hint of romance. Each book in the Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations series is stand-alone. A fast-paced, page turning adventure you won’t want to miss! I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

I've often thought what I would do if I suddenly came into some money and what would I do with it! Well, this happened to Lacey, although she suddenly got a B & B - the house she grew up in - in a will and it was totally unexpected but it came at the perfect time. She is a single mom and very down on her luck. She is in great financial need, having paid off her former husband's debts and wondering what she can do next since she has a son to raise. She is so excited to go back to the house she was raised and has many happy memories. It is a B&B but she looks forward to working there as the owner. And, the added plus is that a childhood friend, Ryan, lives next door and he is the sheriff now! But, then bad things begin to happen around town and Ryan has to deal with a burglary ring, then a dead body in the woods and I wont say more but the book is great! There is lots of action and it's a great story. I loved the secondary characters too! Margaret knows show to write romantic suspense! Definitely pick up a copy of the book and enjoy!

Deadly Legacy is a fast-paced book in the Strong Women, Extraordinary Situations series. What would you do if you suddenly received a letter from an attorney that you are now the owner of a bed and breakfast? Taking it a step further, it is the home you lived in as a child and was converted to a bed and breakfast after it was sold to pay the debts of your father. How would you feel to learn that the man next door is someone your older sister had a crush on before your family moved away? But the thing that kicks up the pace is not particularly the B and B or the neighbor, but the fact that a burglary ring has been active in the area and someone is seen snooping around the carriage house the first day you arrive back at your former home. This is all happening to Lacey as she steps into the role of owner of the B and B. Add in the fact the B and B is being renovated while she and her son are trying to get acclimated to their new home. For action, clean romance, and suspense, I recommend the book. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
