I’m writing this post on Groundhog’s Day (though we’ve pretty much experienced THAT for 11 months, right?) and it looks like six more weeks of winter. But that doesn’t mean we can’t dream about reading under warm, sunny skies while sipping a cool beverage, right?
Unless, of course, you’re in the southern hemisphere and dream of cold days and warm cocoa.
Personally, I think Legacy (out May 23) fits the bill for any kind of reading experience and I’m pleased to share the first chapter.
The official cover copy reads:
Adrian Rizzo met her father for the first time when she was seven. It was the same day he nearly killed her mother, Lina.
A decade later, Adrian is as cool-headed and ambitious as her mother. They aren’t close, but they’re cordial as long as neither crosses the other. And then the vicious letters begin to arrive. While Lina dismisses the death threats as a routine part of her daughter’s growing celebrity, Adrian can’t help but find the vicious rhymes unsettling.
Year after year, they arrive with different postmarks, but the same menacing tone.
Sometimes it even seems like the terrifying messages are indeed routine, like nothing will come of them. Until the murders start, and the escalation begins.
You can find the excerpt here: Legacy.
