DARK LEGACY (Book) - 5/26/2003 7:23:23 PM|
Writer Janssenís Dark Legacy is a richly detailed, page turner of a narrative drawing the reader into the tale from the opening lines of the prologue. Active interest is held fast right down to the last paragraph in this roller coaster of a trepidation filled romantic novel. There is just enough romantic passion to titillate the edacity of those who enjoy the genre, and more than enough anxiety driven suspense to keep those of us who enjoy an unsullied thriller absorbed.
Entertaining read, Happy to recommend.

By Christine Janssen
Published by Wings Press
eBook and Trade paperback
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Someone is out to get Victoria Wells. Could it be her tenant, a con on parole after serving time for the murder of his wife, or her deceased husband's partner, the wealthy lawyer, who is a little too eager to help, or the down-on-his-luck friend of her husband who is trying to blackmail her by threatening her daughter, or her daughter's abusive boyfriend, or ... No I'm not going to give away any of Christine Janssen's carefully crafted suspense. From the first page, the first murder, Christine had me hooked, really hooked. I was part way through a Janet Evanovich novel, when I picked up DARK LEGACY. I was just going to read a few pages, but hours later, Evanovich was forgotten, I had to know. I was totally caught up in Victoria's life. I wanted to warn her that someone was stalking her, out to kill her, but I, like her, didn't have a clue. Christine has written a superb suspense novel of menace and misdirection. I am in awe of her ability to weave a story, giving us glimpses into the mind of the killer, without revealing which one it is, to keep us guess exactly what's going on.
DARK LEGACY is also a romance, one that doesn't rely on the instant infatuation, excess lust, or silly contrived problems. The romance is mature, real, and very satisfying. Nor is all the sex sweetness and light, there are some pretty hard edged stuff, that really grabs you.
Christine has created a cast of characters that are deep and complex. She lets you delve into the minds of these people until they become vividly real. Not just the hero and heroine, but all the characters are solid and very memorable, some chillingly so.
Would I recommend DARK LEGACY--there is nothing not to recommend. DARK LEGACY is romantic suspense at its absolute best.
