Jacqueline Seewald is a master of the written word. Her book jumped to life right from the beginning and the story held your attention through to the end. A true mystery, it kept you wondering 'who-done-it' throughout the story. Excellent read that I recommend to everyone! :)

Well-plotted Mystery/Suspense with Heated Romance Too

Michelle Hallam is an Englishwoman with secrets. She has taken over her Uncle’s consulting firm after his death. The new man in her life has no idea just how dangerous she is…

This author immediately throws her main female character into action in the first few pages and keeps you glued to the story from there on out. Michelle has odd talents; an exceptional talent for self-defense, an intelligence that her Uncle has expanded by sharin

*First-Reads Won*

This book was an enjoyable read. It had an interesting plot, likable main characters, and enough going on to keep the reader reading.

However, this isn't the most perfect book in existence. It is good, but for my tastes it is a little romance heavy for being an action book. I was assuming by the title and description this would have more action than romance, but it does not.

Also, there is not much character development for anyone else mentioned in the story besides Michelle and D

"Death Legacy" by Jacqueline Seewald is a true page-turner with elements of international intrigue, espionage and murder. From the moment Michelle Hallam, an investigative consultant, and Dr. Daniel Reiner, a psychiatrist, meet, sparks fly. Not only is there an incredible physical attraction between the two of them but, as they investigate the suspicious death of her husband for Nora Parker, a client of Michelle's and a patient of Daniel's, there's more than one actual explosion. Their lives are ...more

I've been reading a lot of books on Kindle lately - and leaving most of them unread part way through. This book caught me on the first page and kept me interested to the end. While there were a few parts I questioned the protagonist's actions and thought the romance a bit drawn out at times, I enjoyed the story overall. Good action and great readability. (Disclosure: I received an arc but it didn't sway my opinion.)

Awkward writing and scenarios with barely enough intrigue to keep me interested. Unfortunately, the main character's romance and dialogue detracted from the story. Too bad, because there was promise at first.

Readers,

Check out reviews of Death Legacy posted under the hardcover edition. You will also find excellent reviews of this romantic suspense mystery spy thriller in BOOKLIST and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY as well as Amazon.

Unimpressed. It did keep me entertained enough to finish reading it. The female lead has an interesting backstory. The male romantic interest is "I need to brush my teeth" sweet.

I found this book in a lending library by my local Bigby. It was the only book in there that wasn't Anime or a children's book. I usually never would have picked this kind of book out. I found the character Michelle very irritating with her on again off again relationship with Daniel. I also think that the mystery was very predictable. Of course if the CIA is involved people aren't going to be who they say they are or work for who they say they work for. When I realized the ending I was not sho ...more
