Legacy excerpt

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.

  3. Thanks for this. I really enjoyed it. You’ve already caught my attention with this chapter and I am excited about this book. 😁

    Job’s a good ‘un

  4. Good to hear from you. 2021 has not started well for my family, and the crop of new books is a perfect way for me to get swept away to another world. Thank you!!!

  7. I, was always told not to wish my, life away.
    But when it comes to a new Nora release
    The waiting is torture.

  8. I’m going to wait for the book since I’m a greedy ready and will want to keep reading. I’m looking forward to the book.

  14. What wonderful characters. I love the prelude to a mystery that immediately pulled me into it’s spell.
    Can’t wait to read the rest!

  15. I shouldn’t have read this. May? Really? That’s so long to wait!!!!!

    1. I tell myself that every time there is a preview chapter. “Don’t read it. It will make the wait longer.” But I always cave. I had the same visceral reaction to this first chapter as I did with Under Currents, I wanted to hurt the abuser. It proves what a great writer Nora is. I had to put my iPad down before I threw it, stomp around then write this. I can hardly wait to finish this book.
