Book Review Unclaimed Legacy by Deborah Heal

"I call it time-surfing," Abby said. "It's like being there,
 except no one can see or hear us."

"Whatever you call it," John said, "that was crazy--what we just did.
 Beyond realistic. I mean, I was in that guy's head
and knew everything he was thinking."

Abby's weird computer program is working again. And it comes in handy when they agree to help the Old Dears next door with their family tree. Except Abby and John learn more about one of the ladies' ancestors than they ever wanted to know. Convicted in 1871 of murder and arson, Reuben Buchanan is a blight on the family's reputation. But was he really guilty? Abby and John get inside the mind of a murderer to find out.

But while they're rummaging around in the Old Dears' family history, they discover the truth of God's promise to bless a thousand generations... and a legacy waiting to be reclaimed.

Deborah Heal is a former high school English teacher who loves reading, gardening, and learning about southern Illinois history. She is married and has three grown children, three grandchildren, and two canine buddies named Digger and Scout. Today she lives in the St. Louis Metro East area, but for many years she lived not far from the setting of her first novel, Time and Again. In Unclaimed Legacy, the second in the trilogy, Abby, John, and Merrideth must clear the name of a man wrongly accused of murder--in a 150-year-old case! The author is currently working on book three.

  Unclaimed Legacy is book 2 in Time and Again series and it’s very enjoyable to read. The characters are all the same with a couple of new ones and the setting is mostly the same, but in a new small town.
  Abby is still working on her summer project of helping tutor a young girl whom is doing well even though she is going through a lot of family problems.
  Even though I said this is a nice book to me it’s to much the same. I know the story is about different people, but the time surfing on the computer from different houses seems all the same to me. This book is just continuing from book one almost like one continuing book. I grew tired of the same story line even though it was different. Hard to explain unless you have read the book.
  I also found Abby’s “boyfriend” tiring with his quick escapes from any kind of emotions. Like holding hands, showing affection, quick kiss etc. You can control yourself without completely staying away from someone.
  This book is sweet for younger girls and Abby would be a good role model for them. If you like this kind of book it is a quick, easy read.

I have great news! Unclaimed Legacy will be free for Kindle on Amazon Oct. 29-Nov 2!

I hope you'll take advantage of this FREE event! Not only to do you get a free copy of my book Unclaimed Legacy, I also benefit with royalties and a rise in ranking for my books.

Don't forget to go back to post a review of Unclaimed Legacy after you finish reading it.

And did you know that even if you don't own a Kindle, you can read it on your computer?

If you haven't read Time and Again, book one in the series, you'll want to before you read Unclaimed Legacy. The cheapest way to get a copy of Time and Again is to order it from my website (until my supply is gone).
