Seventeen-year-old Fanny has never put much stock in the conventions of society. In fact, she has given her heart to Michael, the family boat-keeper.

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

"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 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!

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.
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

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

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.

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.

I'm glad I picked up this book to read! The plot is enjoyable, the characters are well described, the writing flows well through each chapter, and there are many references to God and the Bible.

I was under the assumption this book would be all about one young woman in particular, Fanny, as she deals with a newfound inheritance. There were sections that talked about secondary characters, such as Fanny's cousins and her domineering uncle, but they added depth to the story.

Don't waste your time or your money. I have no idea why so many gave this book more than 1 star. It's the first in a series, so I'd steer clear of anymore that might come out. Unless something drastically changes, the others will be just as disappointing. In my experience, a book never gets better the farther you read into it. It just doesn't.

The characters are really flat, 2-dimensional obviously contrived automatons except for the villainous uncle.

There is tremendous build-up, but nothing ha

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

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
I don't care for a book that doesn't have not only not a happy ending but no ending at all. I'm trying to figure out how they are going to wrap everything up in the next few chapters, and they don't!!!. They just want you to pay the $5 for the next book. I won't be doing it, nor any other books from these authors. Very disappointed. It goes on and on about the dishonesty of her uncle and there is not a finale to show him get his due.I read several hundred books a year. But none of the ones in th ...more

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

I downloaded this book as a "freebie" for my Kindle and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this story. This is a Christian fiction story which is important to me because that means there is no foul language, explicit sex or sexual innuendo. The story is set in the late 19th century so I appreciate the historic value of the story as well. However, I am noticing a disturbing trend in "Chick Lit" books (fiction for women), and that is so many authors are opting to market their books in ...more

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and it was enough to get me to want to read the other books in the series. A young woman, Fanny, comes from a rich & socially important family. When her own parents died, she lives with her grandparents, whom she loves deeply. Other important people in her life are her cousins, Amanda & Sophie as well as a certain young man. He, along with his family, are the caretakers of the family's Thousand Islands estate, which makes him an unsuitable suitor for Fanny. ...more

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. ; )

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!

Terrible book. I was interested in the romance betweem Fanny and Michael, but the entire storyline was centred on the uncle wanting her share of the inheritance and scheming to do so. She had no interest in the money. Would have be easier to just offer her the mansion to live in on the island with Michael if he could keep the rest of the money.

Worst part about this book was the absolute lack of any conclusion. I had to check that my kindle was working because I thought it left out the last chap

Tracie Peterson was one of my favorite authors about 20 years ago. I got started on "The Broadmoor Legacy" after buying the first book on Kindle when it was on sale for $1.99. While on Spring Break vacation a week ago, I read the entire trilogy.

The series is about three cousins: Fanny, Sophie & Amanada. Set in the 1890's, their grandfather's death leaves wealth to the three families. Each book tells the story of one of the cousins.

Frustrating ending

While written fairly well I felt like I was constantly waiting for something to turn right. I was glad that Fanny, the main character of the book, remained true to the good young woman she was depicted as, but it was frustrating to feel the deceitful ways of her uncle through to the very end with no resolution. I like happy endings, not ones that leave me feeling bad for the injustice done. I'm sure it must resolve itself in the next book but after reading the following books s

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
