From the back of the book:
Lucy Drake's mastery of Morse code has made her a valuable asset to the American news agencies as a telegrapher. But the sudden arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith at rival British news agency Reuters puts her hard-earned livelihood at risk. Newly arrived from London, Colin is talented, handsome, and insufferably charming.
Despite their rivalry, Lucy realizes Colin's connections could be just what her family needs to turn the tide of their long legal battle over the fortune they were swindled out of forty years ago. When she negotiates an unlikely alliance with him, neither of them realizes how far the web of treachery they're wading into will take them.
My thoughts on Elizabeth Camden:
Elizabeth Camden is an amazing writer who has written several books that I have throughly enjoyed. She writes from her heart, from the history and knowledge that she knows. She creates memorable and loveable characters who take you on adventures and make you feel as if you are walking right along with them in many of their journeries. Her elements of faith bleed through the back story and don't come across as being shoved down your throats.
My thoughts on A Dangerous Legacy:
I haven't finished the whole book but to the part that I have gotten is very well written, has lots of drama and makes you like certain characters more than others. I love the idea of the plan between Colin and Lucy to work together for the benefits of both parties. I absolutely loathe uncle thomas and his sneaky ways. I have always admired the way people first began to communicate in this country before telephones were made available at every turn.
It must have been interesting to be able to evesdrop on calls and to hear other people's business. Once can only hope there wasn't inappropriate behavior if you catch my drift. Colin grated on my nerves at first but then I started to understand him better and he wasn't so bad. I feel bad for people like Colin who have served in war and deal with PTSD. I am hearing impaired and loud noises scare me from time to time but what he goes through is way different and affects alot of military people.
I have one friend who has it so badly that he has to hide in the basement with military-efficient headphones and play video games to block out the noise of the fireworks. It really can make them think they are back in the war-torn areas fighting for their lives and the lives of others. I wish people would think about that before they just go too fire-work happy.
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. As always, I will leave you with who I can see playing the characters.
