Book Review: A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden

188Page-Turning Romance and Intrigue in Award-Winning Author’s Next Historical Novel

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.

What I Loved: Where do I start? There was a detailed plot that kept the story moving at a steady pace. Camden is gifted at bringing a scientific study to light and she did well here with the details of plumbing and telegraphy. The setting comes to life. The bad guys aren’t one dimensional. The heroes and heroine are medal-worthy. But where A Dangerous Legacy shines the most is in the relationships between the characters. From page one, Lucy and her brother, Nick, grab your attention for their plight and their endearing relationship. Then there’s the playful banter between Lucy and Colin. Not to mention the more toxic relationships sprinkled throughout the story. I truly enjoyed every minute of it and I can’t wait to see what becomes of Nick Drake.

Rating and Recommendation: I’m giving A Dangerous Legacy 5 stars and recommending it to those who enjoy Christian Historical Fiction.

~I received a copy from Bethany House. I was not compensated for my review. All thoughts are my own.

Audio Version: I had the pleasure of picking up the audio version and can highly recommend it as well.
