Review: ‘Claiming Her Legacy’ by Linda Goodnight

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…

Oklahoma, 1890

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…

My Rating: 5 Stars
This book was so very good! I am always so happy when a book starts off well, with believable characters and plots. Linda Goodnight has a definite winner here in my book. I’m very happy that Love Inspired decided to put out a trade-length line.

Goodnight has fashioned these characters so that I felt as if I could almost see inside their hearts and feel their emotions. Her way of describing their feelings and emotions was amazing and I felt as if I had known them for years. Gideon was a really well done male character; his hurts, his anger, his addiction. I don’t think he could have been done better at all. And Willa, who is convinced she is never to be loved and cherished and thinks of herself and plain and simple; it was such fun watching her be developed. This one is great, folks. Full and rich seems a paltry way to describe it, but that’s exactly what it was. I kid you not.

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book via the Net Galley platform. The opinion here is entirely my own.
