About the Book
With her family’s legacy on the line, a woman with everything to lose must rely on a man hiding from his past…
Frontier women don’t ride off alone to track an outlaw—not even women as capable as tomboy spinster Willa Malone. But Willa desperately needs the bounty money offered for her father’s killer if she’s to keep their homestead and take care of her sisters. That means she needs an expert tracker’s help. Gideon Hartley has the skill, but the handsome trail guide also has a troubling secret…
Gideon has spent years trying to numb his pain with whiskey. Little by little, their quest—and Willa’s belief in him—is restoring the sense of purpose he thought he’d lost. Journeying into the heart of danger, they’ll have to face down the past together if they hope to protect their future…
In My Opinion
Claiming Her Legacy is the first book I’ve read by Linda Goodnight even though she’s authored a good number of books.
Goodnight brings the reader along as Willa and her two half-sisters fight to keep their home and Gideon fights his demons with whiskey. The first half of the book is focused on character development and setting up the second half of the book and drags once in a while, but the wait is worth the payoff.
And I can’t help but wonder whether we’ll see some of these secondary characters in future books.
