Book Review and Giveaway - Legacy of Lies Author: Christy Barritt On Tour with Celebrate Lit

 


About the Book

Book: Legacy of Lies

Author: Christy Barritt

Genre: Suspense

Release date: November 15, 2021


The justice system failed her family—and so did her hometown.

Madison Colson knows deep down that her father—a convicted serial killer—is innocent. But believing it and proving it are two entirely different things. Unable to help her father, Madison has spent most of her adult life overcompensating by helping others. When her aunt dies unexpectedly, duty calls her back to Fog Lake, Tennessee, a beautiful but painful place she’d rather forget.

Terrifying events begin to unfold once she arrives, unleashing her worst nightmares. The Good Samaritan Killer—or a copycat—is back, and now Madison Colson is his target.

FBI Special Agent Shane Townsend is determined to stop the deadly rampage that has sent the tightknit community into a frenzy. But he needs to earn Madison’s trust first. The task feels impossible, especially considering his father is the one who put her dad in prison.

With the whole town on edge and pointing fingers, tension escalates out of control. Madison and Shane must sort the facts from the lies—and fight for a legacy of truth—before The Good Samaritan Killer has the final say.

More from Christy

I wrote Legacy of Lies after watching an interview on TV of a woman whose father killed several people. I tried to put myself in her shoes. How did she cope under the weight of what her father had done? How did people treat her differently? How did her father’s decisions affect her future? From there, I had the idea to highlight a group of three siblings who were dealing with this. I’d already done another four-book series in the mountain town of Fog Lake, Tennessee, and I really loved setting those books there. I decided to revisit the area and make it the place where these three siblings had grown up—and where they had to return.


My Thoughts 


Christy Barritt has done it again. Just when I think her books can get any better - Boom she writes  Legacy of Lies. Legacy of Lies is book five in the Fog Lake Suspense Series. I have not read any of this series stories - but I had no problem following along. Things that you will get when you read a book from this author: Late nights, page turning and complete shock. 

Madison is convinced that her dad is not what everyone has made him out to be. She feels that he is not a serial killer. She knows that she cannot help him now, so she has made it her life work to help others. However, she returns back to Fog Lake, Tennessee after her aunt dies and all of a sudden she is a killer's target. FBI Special Agent Shane  wants to help Madison, however it's his dad that put her dad away. Now that violence and uncertainty has plagued this town again, can he get her to trust him? 

This story is filled with twists and turns. I would think that I had everything figured out, then boom another path presents itself. On Madison's dad - I am not 100% convinced he is innocent but the author writes in that shows there could be shadows of doubt. The characters stories were well written.
