Hidden Legacy was actually very good! I didn't read the companion novel before this one (mainly because I didn't know there was a companion novel!), but that didn't keep me from thoroughly enjoying this story.

I liked the second chance romance and the characters were nice. There were scenes of suspense and danger and basically everything you look for in a LIS.

All in all, I recommend Hidden Legacy if you enjoy LIS.

*I received a complimentary eBook copy of this book for my honest review. As always

Though this is labeled "Inspirational Romantic Suspense" and the MC's faith is important to them, it's not a "hit the reader over the head so they will convert" story. The emphasis is definitely on the mystery behind the murder attempts on Caroline & the baby she is adopting. Throw in a second-chance thread & it's a good story. ...more

Harlequin gave me this short, larger print book and I am very glad they did. It was well written, inspiring because of the comments, the main character Jason made, which influenced Caroline. Caroline and her baby were targeted for death and Jason helped along with friends to find out what was going on--the whys and whos. Lots of action, suspense, and love in this one. Just my kind of book.

Intense action, intriguing suspense, great character development, sweet and gentle second chance love story, an adorable baby - this story has it all, and does it well!
The characters are multiple and likable, from protagonists to the supporting cast and crew, they have all distinctive characteristics, they are unique, with their strengths and weaknesses, and they all have something about them that made me have a connection with them, understand where they were coming from, and like them all the

"The house had been ransacked." What a great opening line for a heart-stopping romantic suspense. It promises so much, even as it raises questions in a curious reader's mind. If my tummy wasn't flipping over the relentless attacks against Caroline and little Henry, it was flipping over a certain Detective who just happens to be an old love interest. The one that got away, though Caroline's heart is having a difficult time believing that it's really over. She's guarded. He's wary. But their past ...more

I can now happily say I’ve read everything this author has published. She’s a fresh voice in Christian Romantic Suspense and this book did not disappoint. The twists keep coming right til the very end. Can’t wait to read her next offering.

This book is full of mystery, suspense, romance, family and so much more. I am not sure if it is part of a series or not, It seems it would be a great one if not. I fell in love with most of the characters and want to know their history and future. If you enjoy police/FBI type books you will love this one.

Caroline Harrison is excited about the upcoming adoption of Henry, yet when it seems someone is trying to kill them she must rely on the only man who has ever broken her heart. Will thy be able

Is redemption real? Can a person change? Is forgiveness available for everyone?

These are underlying questions that Lynn Blackburn addresses in her latest romantic suspense book, “Hidden Legacy”. Blackburn’s command on weaving a tale is powerful.

North Carolina-grown Caroline Harrison had all the trappings of a happy life. Rich. Beautiful. Loyal to a fault. Little did she know this loyalty put her life—and soon-to-be-adopted son’s life—in danger.

Jason Drake, retired military and now County Sheri

Excellent book. It was exciting, suspenseful, and even a little romantic at times. The mystery of the attacks, the love coming back to the surface little bits at a time, and the family/friends coming together to take care of each other really made for the perfect "must sit and read in one sitting" experience.
I do not like to give a summary because I think those reading reviews should really just read the book for themselves. This is one I would highly recommend. Buy it if you can, or if you are

Recommended to Jennifer by: Avon Lake Public Library
3.5 stars--I've read other Lynn Blackburn novels but not the companion novel to this one. There's a history between Jason and Caroline that I didn't understand for much of the book. Oh, I knew they'd been together at one time and then broken up, but the details were all a bit hazy which made it hard to understand how they related to each other currently, as they reunite to try to keep her almost-adopted infant son safe.

I felt the suspense wrapped up rather quickly--more time was taken to set th

Be prepared to sit on the edge of your seat. Suspense at its finest. The characters seemed so real. I am afraid I have become rather attached to them. It was disappointing in a way when I finished because I wanted to keep reading about Caroline and Henry as well as Jason. It also helped that the story is based in an area where I used to live so I could visualize the places in the book. This book was also great on an inspirational level. I love reading books that although they are fiction, they k ...more

Action packed

Action from the very first page, Caroline is in the process of adopting her best friends son. When things started going crazy, someone broke into her house and the intruder took a shot at her and Henry. Jason had left Caroline because he thought he was not good enough for her but now he is back working for the sheriff's department. Can he protect her and baby Henry and maybe recapture what they had before. This story had attempted murder, fire ants, drones, and forgiveness.

This was an excellently written book. The action and suspense reeled me in from the beginning and wouldn’t let me go. The romantic aspect was on point, and I loved little Henry.

The only downfall is that I didn’t realize there was a book written before this. I would’ve read it before had I known, but it’s only a minor downfall.

I would for sure recommend this book! It’s a great read.

"Hidden Legacy" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. This is the second book in the series, though it works as a stand alone. However, this book did "spoil" what went on in the first novel.

The suspense was created by someone trying to kill Caroline and her son. I loved the scene where Jason's mother tells them to get inside (rather than get romantically distracted in the open) since someone's trying to kill them--but what does she know, she's just a housewife! lol. Go, girl!
