Lethal Legacy is another fast-paced suspense novel by Carol J. Post that should keep most readers turning those pages and annoyed by any interruption. As the frequency of danger and unexplained accidents increases, the long buried connection between Andrea and Sheriff Deputy Bryce Caldwell pushes its way to the surface, demanding another look at their relationship.

Once again I found myself buried in an excellent story by this author who has a talent  for writing captivating suspense. Great character development and vivid details kept the story believable. Every time it looked like the characters could take a breather, something else would happen. There was a good list of possible people who had reason to want Andrea injured or even dead but my guesses at a possible suspect changed as the tale progressed. A few plot twists and surprises along the way and an unobtrusive Christian message combined to make this an enjoyable read. If you have not read a Carol J. Post novel, Lethal Legacy might be a good place to start.

He’s her only chance to survive

Andrea Wheaton thought her parents’ tragic deaths were accidental—until she’s attacked during a burglary at their home. Now she’s also being targeted. Her ex-sweetheart Sheriff Deputy Bryce Caldwell insists on protecting her, though she refuses to trust him again. But with a killer closing in, can she and Bryce uncover her family’s secrets before it’s too late for them both?


From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special events decorating company, Carol’s resume reads like someone who doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. But her one constant has always been her love for writing. She lives in Central Florida with her husband and enjoys sailing, hiking and camping. Her daughters and grandson live too far away for her liking, so she pours all that nurturing into caring for three fat cats and one spoiled dog
