A Dangerous Legacy is the latest novel from Elizabeth Camden. As of now it is a stand-alone, but a sequel is on its way.
One thing I love about Camden’s novels is the unique perspective on historical details that she centers on in each novel. For instance, in A Dangerous Legacy Camden weaves in details about the race to string a telegraph wire across the Pacific, a Panama Canal versus a Nicaraguan canal, and getting running water in the upper floors of buildings. These are the kinds of technological advancements that I don’t often think of or take time to appreciate, but that I enjoy when Camden brings to light in her novels.
As for characters and plot, this book includes the angsty romance typical of Camden’s works, where the characters don’t like each other but end up having to work together, then end up falling in love, the male character deciding that it just won’t work out, and then the heroine saving the day and the man falling head over heels for her all over again.
So, all in all, I’m a little disappointed that it’s just the same ol’, same ol’ with a new historical focus. I do like the cover, however, and it was cool that it released on my birthday. 🙂
