Rebecca Reviews ~ A Dangerous Legacy (Empire State #1) by Elizabeth Camden

Paperback, 352 pages
Published October 3rd 2017 by Bethany House Publishers
Lucy is determined to keep working as a telegraph operator at a news agency, even though the arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith threatens her position. When she discovers Colin's shocking secret, she agrees to assist him if he helps her find her family's stolen inheritance--not realizing that the trail leads into a web of treachery, danger, and conspiracy.

Rebecca's Review
5 STARS!!!

"Colin remained motionless for a full minute after the door slammed. Lucy Drake was as attractive as he remembered. He wished she wasn't."

Battling decades of law suits regarding the rights to a family invention, Lucy Drake and her brother Nicholas, are exhausted with their attempts for full disclosure and justifiable inheritance. As a telegraph operator with the Associated Press, Lucy discovers an unlikely ally within the rival British news agency Reuters, a Sir Colin Beckwith, when information crosses her desk regarding potential criminal activity instigated by her estranged uncle.

In spite of the magnetism of attraction that flares between the two almost immediately, Colin is fighting his own dragons; his inheritance, a once fine English estate, needs an infusion of thousands of dollars to keep it from disintegrating; thus, demanding that he marry an heiress, which at the moment, Lucy is not.

As Lucy and Colin engage in covert investigative jaunts, the depth of danger substantially increases; someone is watching their every move and is quite determined that the truth remain cloaked underneath a heavy veil of lies. Elizabeth Camden has penned an intriguing story, introducing characters who display an amazing array of courageous qualities.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. The opinions stated above are entirely my own.

Rebecca is a graduate of Bryan College with a degree in Christian Education, and is currently serving at the First Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church in Gastonia, North Carolina as the Director of Children's Ministry. With nearly 28 years of experience in her field, she has had many opportunities to use her love of reading and writing in creative ways across the generations. A wife, mother of four "nearly" grown children, and grandmother to four beautiful grandchildren, Rebecca has been able to return to her love of reading and more recently reviewing, with a renewed passion for the "beauty of story".

~Happy Reading, Y'all~
