Cousins Amanda, Sophie, and Fanny Broadmoor are as close as sisters, but when their grandfather dies, the terms of his will just might destroy their bond. 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. But when she receives a surprising inheritance, she discovers just how ...more

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

It has been a while since I read this, but I remember thinking it was okay, but not that great. Some of the stories twists I found made me uncomfortable, and I remember thinking it was a bit boring. I would have to read it again to give it a deeper review.
I read this once before back when it first came out (GR says that was in 2008) so while this is a re-read for me, only parts of it sounded vaguely familiar to me. The book really isn't all that great, but I re-read it because my library has the whole series in audiobook & this gives me something to listen to at work.

Though I only give this book 2 stars, it is a good enough story that it didn't completely bore me. Or drive me crazy. It definitely could have been much better, but... it also co

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.

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 i

You know you’re blessed when you have a Grandma who owns shelves of wonderful Christian books to read. I was able to borrow The Broadmoor Legacy series by Tracie Peterson from her, and I'm glad I did!

Tracie has this style of writing that I have loved every time I’ve read one of her novels. It might be kind of odd considering her books tend to be a bit slower, and that’s normally not my preference. In this case, she had been able to draw me into the
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.

A Daughter’s Inheritance follows the story of the Broadmoor cousins Fanny, Amanda, and Sophie. They are each beginning to reach their majority age and being thrown into the woes of adulthood. This specific book in the trilogy follows Fanny Broadmoor after the death of her grandfather - the last living relative who raised her after being orphaned at a young age. During the reading of her grandfather’s will, the family finds out that the patriarch of the Broadmoor clan has left one-third of his es ...more

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

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

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'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.

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!

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.

I thought I would enjoy this more than I actually did. To me I didn't much care for the main characters. I found myself more interested in Sophie and Paul. Which is what I will be starting next.

I can only give three stars because I really have no desire to read the rest of the series. It was an interesting story, albeit already done, but it dragged a bit and I got frustrated because I saw the character's "innocence" as being dumb. The bad guy was awful, conniving, malicious and hateful but people don't treat him as such and aren't nearly as suspicious of him as they ought to be if they were smart. There were a few times where I felt the "historical factoids" felt inserted instead of a ...more

A Daughter’s Inheritance was an entertaining and engaging read that had a few surprises along the way. I didn’t think the layout of the story followed a typical track and was pleasantly surprised when a character took a different approach to an issue than I was expecting. There is a romance, but it is more in the background to the schemes of the villainous characters. This made the book extra enjoyable because you were constantly wondering what was going to happen because of the most recent sche ...more

I love Tracie Peterson's writing style. It's always sweet while always offering a sense of wonder about what will happen next. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the abrupt ending. I turned the last page expecting to see another chapter and /BAM/ there was none... So I must wait patiently until I can purchase book two to find out what happens next.

The book was well written and the characters were interesting but there was no wrap up for Franny! I expected for Franny to get her happy ending with Michael but by the end of the book it doesn’t even feel like we are close to their romance being resolved. I wouldn’t be surprised if Franny and Michael did not get married until book three.

When I got A Daughter’s Inheritance it was free for the nook. I feel like the book is worth taking a look at and if you enjoyed the first book, pick up the rest

I was most intrigued by the places in which this book takes place. The Thousand Islands of New York is truly a playground of the rich, so the Broadmoor family certainly fits. The controlling and greedy Uncle Jonas is a bit overdone, and some other twists in the narrative make it fun fiction rather than anything believable. Fanny Broadmoor is a year shy of her inheritance which Uncle Jonas stops at nothing to wrest from her. The cousins add some humor, while the faithful boatkeeper, Michael, the ...more

“Strange that she could clearly articulate her cousins’ beliefs, but when it came to her own convictions, Fanny experienced difficulty. Perhaps because she disliked confrontation, she had never clearly decided what she believed. Fearful of being ridiculed or appearing foolish, she typically kept her thoughts to herself. Only when she talked to Michael did she feel she could freely express herself. From all appearances, Theresa felt entirely comfortable in his presence, also.” 0 likes
