"Legacy" is a great conclusion and - for me - the best book in the series. Like the previous books, it's well written; the writing is captivating and wonderfully descriptive (you can almost see the spanish scenery in front of you). The protagonists are likeable, have edges to them and secrets that make the story exciting. The dynamic between them is interesting as well. Luna has problems to trust men due to traumatic experiences in her past, which is why she does not really welcome Ruy's advances even though she feels attracted to him. Moreover, her reason to be in Spain is to write about the alternative medicine he practices and she regards as quackery which he doesn't know. He also has a secret that could hurt their blooming relationship. conceals something that could hinder their relationship stones. This keeps the book captivating and as a reader, you just wait for both to learn the truth and how they react to it. The development of their relationship is well written and there are many beautiful, romantic moments between them. I must say that Luna's prejudices against Ruy have bothered me a bit, but when you consider what she has experienced, they are understandable. It was nice to see that she slowly looked behind the facade and realized that some things are different than she thought. Of course it is not easy between them. Both make mistakes, there are misunderstandings, they do not communicate well. This was frustrating, but the book itself refers the famous Shakespare quote that the course of true love never runs smoothly and this certainly applies to Luna and Ruy. The chemistry between them is obvious and you feel that they belong together, but they have to overcome obstacles and mature before they are really ready for their happy ending. It was worth it though - I really liked the way the story ended. I also liked that the couples from the first two volumes - Alexandra and Salvador as well as Luz and Andrés - appear again and that you can see how happy they still are after all the decades they were together. I give "Legacy" four stars. The love story was nice, the characters likeable and although there is also drama, it was well balanced and not over the top.
When a troubled young journalist heads to Spain to investigate and expose the truth behind an alternative health clinic touting cures for cancer, she is not only unprepared for what she discovers, but she will also find answers to her own heritage and any ghosts in their closets. At first blush, we can prepare for an intriguing romantic suspense novel filled with hidden agenda, secrets and lies, as two strangers are caught up in a whirlwind romance that steals both of their hearts. Once you begin reading, you know this is something special, something purely in Hannah Fielding’s style, lyrical, enchanted and alive. LEGACY is just another in a string of books by Ms. Fielding that will sweep readers into her world, as she creates the beauty and romance of Spain with her words. Don’t expect a high velocity start, expect to be gently brought into this tale on the breezes filled with the smell of flowers, the feel of the breezes and the energy of the streets. Feel the settings come to life like magic, as Luna undertakes her investigation in a foreign land that has enchanted her as much as the doctor she is investigating. Rodrigo de Rueda Calderon is as brilliant as he is charming and handsome, but what is going on in his clinic? Does he hide secrets? Passion flares, blending with the sights, sounds and sometimes flamboyant citizens of Cadiz. Truly a romance between two people that will be filled with conflict, yet, Hannah Fielding has also given a flare of reality to her tale. One will see the Spanish phrase as Luna hears it and it is as if we hear her mental translation as it is repeated in English. Do NOT let that break your concentration, feel it as a piece of what anyone hearing a foreign language would! Once again, Hannah Fielding has brought the world of romance to life with her quiet and passionate words and descriptions. The final question remains, what will happen between two intense human beings when their truths are revealed? I received this copy from Hannah Fielding's PR in exchange for my honest review, having read the previous books in this series.
