Free download for nook. I forgot to review this when I finished it a week or so ago, but I can say this: It was extremely frustrating thinking I would get some closure on the heroine's love story, and then not getting it. I know it is part of a trilogy, each of which focuses on one of a trio of female cousins. I figured each book would somewhat bring closure to the main character, but that was not so, at least for this first one. Also, it appears that the plotline of the scheming uncle trying to ...more
Free Nook book, I think.

This book is not too bad a read, but it's a little slow, the characters a little bit two-dimensional, and the story doesn't tie up any loose ends. It's properly titled, though —the big focus of the story is Fanny's inheritance, about which some of her relatives are not very happy, particularly her uncle who feels that he should have gotten her share. He spends the entire book plotting to get that money from her somehow so he can pay off his debts — his biggest strategy in
Technically, I haven't finished this book but it was incredibly boring and I just couldn't finish it. I tried picking it up last night and just didn't grab my attention. Trust me I tried, but I decided to just stop reading it. I'm just really glad It was a kindle freebie and I didn't spend my money on it.
First my rant on Trilogies or serial stories: Oh the frustration of it all! I got all the way to the end of this title only to find absolutely ZERO resolution to the fundamental crisis and plot to the story! I knew before I started this was a trilogy but I at the least expected a partial resolution but noooooo, nothing! I normally don't get up a good rant over a book but I'm really sore about it. Dear author: if you don't plan to bring the book to a satisfactory conclusion or at least a partial ...more

"A Daughter's Inheritance" Book One in The Broadmoor Legacy series written by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller has been released in audiobook format by Oasis Audio and this is a winner. There is a reason why children love to hear stories read to them by their parents and they enjoy the reading even more when the parent uses voices to identify the characters; it makes the reading much more enjoyable. And while we may grow taller we never outgrow the love of having stories told to us in voices an ...more
I really wanted to like this book, but it just seemed to drag on and on. I really can't pinpoint what I disliked about it, but it just seemed so far-fetched, that I really didn't care for it all that much.
I didn't realize this was the first in a series when I downloaded it as a Kindle freebie (I really need to do better research). However, even had I known it was part of a series I would have expected more resolution to the plot than what the novel provides. There is basically no closure, which I found extremely frustrating, especially since the book dragged on a bit but I kept reading to find out how it ended. The shifts in point of view were annoying, as there was often little to signal the shi ...more
This was a Free Kindle Book from Amazon.

I really wanted to like this book, but it just seemed to drag on and on. I really can't pinpoint what I disliked about it, but it just seemed so far-fetched, that I really didn't care for it all that much.

Will I read the other 2...probably just to see what happens to the 3 cousins.

Winter Thibodeaux
I LOVED this book! It had just enough detail to keep me wanting to read more and more. I couldn't put it down and stayed up past midnight MULTIPLE times so that I could finish it as soon as possible. I can't wait to get my hands on the next books in the series!

I really enjoyed this book. It's about a girl, Fanny, and her wealthy family in New York during the late 1890s. While the majority of her relatives are spoiled by greed, Fanny's concerns are far less superficial. She cares about people rather than wealth or status. While Fanny's life is fairly comfortable, she has an uncle who goes to great lengths to try and control her life (in order to control her substantial inheritance). Since this is the first book in the series, the ending lacks closure.

Öncelikle kitabın tarihi aşk kitabı olduğunu söylemeliyim ve "The Broadmoor Legancy" serisinin ilk kitabı ve seri üç kitaptan oluşuyor. İlk kitabı - Miras - Fanny Broadmoor'u konu alıyor diğer iki kitapta kuzenleri Sophie ve Amanda'yı konuyu alıyor...

Gerçi diğer okuduklarımızdan biraz farklıydı. Yazarların dili güçlü ve üslupları da akıcı ancak konusu çok durağan... Kitapta ilk 100 sayfayı okumak biraz sabır gerektirdi çünkü sıkıldım ama ondan sonra konusu
A Daughter's Inheritance by Tracie Peterson & Judith Miller

I snagged this as a Kindle freebie a while back. And I'm very glad I did!

A Daughter's Inheritance is the story of the Broadmoor family, specifically we focus on Fanny Broadmoor. Fanny tragically lost both of her parents and has been in the guardianship of her beloved grandfather ever since. She is very close with her cousins, Sophie and Amanda Broadmoor, and when their grandfather dies things change drastically.

Fanny finds that she h
Kari Trumbo
A Daughter's Inheritance isn't even actually a good name for the book, since technically it's a granddaughter's inheritance. I wanted to like this book, But I really just can't. Even the cover of the book is all wrong, Fanny has auburn hair in the book and even complains in the book that she is not blond like her grand-mere was.
The author attempts to make Fanny deep and caring, but it falls flat, in fact, all of the characters seem very shallow and one-dimensional. The whole middle of the book i

This book had a few interesting characters. However, Reader - Beware! You might be as disappointed as I was that the primary characters - Franny and Michael - have no resolution to their love story at least in this book. Furthermore, there were so many minor shenanigans going on throughout the book which came to absolutely nothing, it was frustrating.

Uncle Jonas was a big thorn in the flesh to everyone in the story. His constant contrivances which resulted in nada/zilch/zero only served to irrit
Nice just about sums this book up. Good-ish storyline, okay characters, nice setting, but nothing that really stood out to me. There was an awful lot of dialogue, and not much art in the writing, which meant that the story got a little stodgy in places.
Still, I'm going to read book two to find out what happens. ; )
Becky Waters
Again-purchased at a church rummage sale--bought on the basis of what I read on the cover-hopeful that it wouldn't be trashy, boring. I wasn't disappointed. Evidently it is a series and this just happened to be the first. I do hope that the next one picks up where this one left off... A good find!
Plot line to steal the inheritance from her by Uncle Jonas was extremely hokey. This novel had potential, but the unrealistic plot scheming made it a bit pathetic.

Money makes the world go round- at least in the Broadmoor family. Amid the ballgowns, summers away at the island, and growing up with two cousins who are like sisters to her, tragedy strikes in the life of young Fanny who is left to the guardianship of an unscrupulous uncle. Greed takes over and her Uncle Jonas will stop at virtually nothing to claim for himself what is legally hers.
This is the first installment of a tale that takes place in The Thousand Islands area in its heyday and depicts th
I like the story line. However, I found the ending ended very strange to me. To me the uncle got away with too much.
Lisa Crenshaw
I became completely engaged with many of the characters and wanted to know more about them and their point of view. When the story ended I was shocked, it seemed as though I had just opened the book. I'm looking forward to finishing the series and seeing how these girls lives turn out. Great protagonist and great villain. I do hope we will learn more about Amanda and Sophie in the next two series as well as keeping up with Fanny. I didn't feel we had learned as much about Michael in this story. ...more
This is a great story; romantic, clean, and heartwarming.

The setting of the book was so important to the plot, that it was a little jarring when the setting completely changed. I felt like I didn't know the characters (except Jonas) outside of Broadmore Island and somehow I expected them to be different off the island.

This book made me think a lot about social classes. Classes must exist if anyone wants to experience something nice or luxurious. For example, the wealthy can only have a fancy par
From the start of this book it has reminded me a lot of Luxe by Anna Godberson who wrote books set in the similar time frame. This book was a freebie I picked up on kindle download last year and have finally got around to reading it. It's set in Rochester new York where my family are currently living, but so far I haven't recognised any of the areas they are referring to in the book. Set with a back drop of society events and marriages for financial gain, this book centres on Fanny and her life ...more

Money means a great deal to people. A young woman, named Fanny, inherits a great amount of money from her grandfather. Her Uncle Jonas is very displeased that she has inherited such money. He goes through many lengths to get this money without her knowing. Fanny finds love but comes to find out she may not be able to have this man. Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller’s A Daughters Inheritance captured my interest throughout the whole book.

The book is set in the 18th century. During that time young

This is the first book of The Broadmoor Legacy. Fanny is a 17 year old who was raised by her father until he died when she was 11. Her mother died giving birth to her. Then her grandparents took over until they passed away. The setting of the book is the late 1800's and in Rochester, NY and The Thousand Islands where the weathy Broadmoor family has their summer home which is more like a castle. When the grandfather died he left Fanny her father's share of the estate and her uncle as her guardian ...more
This book is meant to be read as part of the trilogy as nothing is actually resolved at the end of the book. There is a lot of expected aspects to the novel. You come to expect the way God is on hand for the good guys in Peterson’s novels so despite the coincidence of Michael meeting the religious miner (although still a bit hard to swallow), you let it go to move the story along. The history and research was well done, however at times it is long-winded and drawn out.

The female characters are s
As the first novel in a series, this is something that I am extremely eager to continue to the next novels. Many times if there is a series where questions are left unanswered for the next novels they are abrupt and annoying in their wait for answers. With this novel I find I have anticipation for the next book in the series, but I'm not left on a ledge in annoyance. I'm glad I've already purchased the second book, and received the third for a review - I cannot wait to read them.
