"Lethal Legacy" takes the reader back to Murphy, North Carolina and in the midst of heartache and a fight to survive. Out of habit, as he does each time he returns home, Bryce looks over at the neighbor's house next door; seeing a vehicle and lights on he decides to go make sure whomever is there is to be there. Bryce is in for a surprise when he discovers the door ajar and the neighbor's daughter on the floor, the daughter whom has not been home in 12 years and whom has a past with Bryce. As Andi shares the story of why she has returned home and how there were 2 individuals with ski masks on in her home, Bryce is alarmed and knows that he has to do all he can to protect Andi and to discover what truly happened to Andi's parents and the odd behavior her father exhibited the past few months prior to the accident that took his life.
I really enjoyed the first book that Carol had written taking place in Murphy and I was happy to be able to return there and be reintroduced to Bryce. This is a well-written story that moves right along at a good pace while keeping me guessing through the twists and turns and constantly trying to figure out the whos, whats, and whys. The relationship and past history between Bryce and Andi played such a big role and yet they were able to put some of it aside to work toward a common goal. The suspense and romance are nicely balanced and the theme of God's protection and love shines through. This is a quick read and a good thing since you will not want to put it down once you start reading!
