The #1 New York Times bestselling author presents a new novel of a mother and a daughter, of ambition and romance, and of a traumatic past reawakened by a terrifying threat…

Adrian Rizzo was seven when she met her father for the first time. That was the day he nearly killed her—before her mother, Lina, stepped in.

Soon after, Adrian was dropped off at her grandparents’ house in Maryland, where she spent a long summer drinking lemonade, playing with dogs, making a new best friend—and developing the stirrings of a crush on her friend’s ten-year-old brother. Lina, meanwhile, traveled the country promoting her fitness brand and turning it into a billion-dollar business. There was no point in dwelling on the past.

A decade later, Adrian has created her own line of yoga and workout videos, following in Lina’s footsteps but intent on maintaining creative control. And she’s just as cool-headed and ambitious as her mother. They aren’t close, but they’re cordial—as long as neither crosses the other.

But while Lina dismisses the death threats that Adrian starts getting as a routine part of her daughter’s growing celebrity, Adrian can’t help but find the vicious rhymes unsettling. Year after year, they keep arriving—the postmarks changing, but the menacing tone the same. They continue after she returns to Maryland and becomes reacquainted with Raylan, her childhood crush, all grown up and as gorgeously green-eyed as ever. Sometimes it even seems like the terrifying messages are indeed routine, like nothing will come of them. Until the murders start, and the escalation begins…


Simmering, satisfying, and suspenseful!

Legacy is a slow-burning, sinister tale that takes you into the life of Adrian Rizzo, who, after meeting and surviving her father’s attempt to murder her at the age of seven, has grown into a confident young woman with a close-knit circle of friends, a successful business, and an extended family who love her dearly, but things are not as rosy as they appear and a psychopathic poet with a long-standing fixation on Adrian seems to be getting more obsessed and dangerous by the day, and the safest place for her to be might just be in Maryland with her grandfather and childhood friend.

The writing is intricate and tight. The characters are well-developed, complex, and loyal. And the plot is an engaging mix of friendship, family, obsession, danger, secrets, love, hatred, mayhem, and romance

Overall, Legacy is another solid, enticing, charged outing by Roberts that has everything I look for in a romantic suspense novel and more.
