He’s her only chance to survive

Her ex-sweetheart Sheriff Deputy Bryce Caldwell insists on protecting her, though she refuses to trust him again. But with a killer closing in, can she and Bryce uncover her family’s secrets before it’s too late for them both?
Happy Almost Release Day for Carol J. Post! Lethal Legacy, the second book in Ms. Post’s Murphy, North Carolina series releases tomorrow, September 1st, and I have had the pleasure of getting to read and review it. (Quick note—though this book is a part of her Murphy, North Carolina series, each book can be read as a standalone.) Check out my thoughts on it below.
Lethal Legacy was a fast paced mystery that moved along quickly. The book hits the ground running with action happening almost immediately. I welcomed that approach to the telling of the story—it helped to capture my attention instantly when I started the book and quickly engaged the curious part of my mind.
I enjoyed both of the main characters of the book. Andrea is a strong, independent woman who has worked hard to get to where she is in life, but comes to realize where she is might not really be the desire of her heart. Bryce is a strong, but sweet protector who’s learned some painful things from past mistakes. I appreciated the redemption of their relationship. That being said, the character growth seems to happen fairly quickly in the story and there’s not as much time to delve as deeply into the characters as I would have liked. I think I would have enjoyed getting to know them even better if there had been time for that.
Overall, I found Lethal Legacy to be a fun, fast paced mystery with a healthy dose of romance. If you’re in the mood for a quick, light read with a mystery at the forefront, Lethal Legacy would be a good choice for you.
