But the sudden arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith at rival British news agency Reuters puts her hard-earned livelihood at risk.

I enjoyed the twists of the story very much but I found it hard to get past the incorrect address of the baronet title, especially considering it was made a point of early in the book. A basic internet search (or some reading of a classic with a baronet character) would have shown the correct address is "Sir Colin" not "Sir Beckwith".

This was a book full of drama, romance and action. I loved the character of Lucy and her determination whatever the cost. Colin was someone you could love under his British reserve. I will definitely get the next book in this series. ( )

A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden is set in the early 1900's and is full of action, adventure and romance. This story comes to life due to Ms. Camden's superb story telling and historically rich settings. I have to say, this may be one of my favorite books by Ms. Camden. I can't wait to read book 2 of this series!

I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own. Thank you to Ms. Camden, Bethany House Publishing and Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. ( )

A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden, © 2017

My Review:

New York City 1903
Complications from generations back become forefront in the lives of Lucy Drake and her brother Nick. Competing with her Uncle Thomas and her cousin Tom Jr. becomes a full-time job, besides her actual decoding employment with the Associated Press. Will she and Nick be able to stay afloat, securing their rightful inheritance with Drake water valves? Seasoned and applicable knowledge handed down enables Nick to continue building the valves, but to what advantage when they are continually sucked into court to dispute their rights?

As if that isn't enough, Lucy becomes enwrapped with the London correspondent at Reuters, the British equivalent of AP. Both news agencies are housed in the Manhattan Western Union Telegraph Building a few floors apart. One advantage ~ or possibly disadvantage ~ is that they both are fluent in the signals of the short and long 'dots' and 'dashes' of Morris code. A homing pigeon becomes an ally between them delivering top-secret messages beyond the wire services. Sir Colin Bethwith, whom she honors with the title "Mr." Bethwith, will be at an advantage to form a friendship with her. Both uncertain which news agency will come out on top, they are dedicated to their positions and arrive early ~ early enough that they join together in investigating slow ups and snags beyond their usual messages. The international news agencies may discover their top sources.

This story will wrap you in as you are eager to discover the wiretaps and outcomes of good versus evil.

***Thank you to Bethany House Publishers for sending a print copy. This review was written in my own words. No other compensation was received.*** ( )
