Kate, Jenny, and Mandy. The daughters who inherited Langston Lockwood’s millions and his mysteries. In this, the second book of The Lockwood Legacy, the women uncover not just the secret of Baxter’s Draw, but the secret of their father’s hidden life. Return to the Rocking L for the next part of the sisters’ journey to discover the truth about their family and to understand their own roles in The Lockwood Legacy.
***** Review *****
The Lockwood Legacy continues with Kate, Jenny and Mandy. If things weren’t complicated enough in book 1, Langston’s Daughters, they get much, much more complicated as the story continues.
The suicide of Langston Lockwood is nothing compared to the secrets he kept when he was alive. Nothing surprised the girls more than the requirements of his will: all three permanently move to the Rocking L to live. It was the one thing he thought that would drive them apart. He couldn’t have been more wrong.
As the girls continue to unravel the secrets Langston kept they are struggling to understand the significance of Baxter’s Draw, a piece of land Langston acquired from the neighboring Baxter ranch.
In the midst of digging deeper, Jenny and Josh Baxter are moving forward with their relationship, and so are Mandy and mayor Joe Bob. Along comes Professor Lowell, to root around in Baxter’s Draw. The girls don’t think he’ll find what he’s looking for, but somebody else is sure the good Professor Jake will uncover what he’s wanted to find for several years.
I could not put down my Kindle except to get a few hours of shut eye before picking back up with the constantly evolving story of the Lockwoods. Just as it seems the day is never done, neither is the Lockwood Legacy.
***** About the Author *****
Juliette Harper is the pen name used by the writing team of Patricia Pauletti and Rana K. Williamson. Like the characters of their debut series, The Lockwood Legacy, Juliette is a merging of their creative energies.
Pauletti, an Easterner of Italian descent, is an accomplished musician with an eye for art and design. Williamson, a Texan from a long line of hardheaded Scots, knows the world of the Lockwoods like the back of her hand.
“We decided to write under a pen name because neither one of us by ourselves could have created Kate, Jenny, Mandy, and their world,” says Pauletti. “Juliette is a little bit of us both. We want to be her when we grow up.”
“Patti teases me that I just don’t want to own up to writing a book with romance in it,” Williamson adds, “but that’s not true. I like the Lockwood women and the way they tackle everything life throws at them. And before we’re done, they’ll be ducking a lot. I imagine coming into the office every day and saying, ‘Okay Juliette, what’s going to happen now?’ She tells us, and we get it down on paper.”
