"A great second book in The MacInness Legacy series!"
The idea of sisters writing a series is a great one
especially sisters like Julie and Sandy Moffett who tie
their stories in together beautifully.
Alexandra Gables has come to Salem, Massachusetts on the
pretext of cataloging rare flowers for Joshua Williams. She
has no way of knowing that her father and Joshua have an
ulterior motive for her being in Salem, that of meeting
Joshua's son Pierce, a stubborn bachelor who is a
Alexandra meets Pierce when he comes to collect her at the
dock thinking she is supposed to be Alexander Gables.
Alexandra doesn't tell him that he's searching for her
until they've gone all over town looking for the mysterious
Mr. Gables. When Pierce finally realizes that it's
Alexandra he's really supposed to collect, he is a bit
peeved but he doesn't stay angry at her for too terribly
long, He finds that she's much too fascinating a woman for
When strange occurrences start to happen to Alexandra and
then she starts to experience strange visions, she doesn't
know what to think. She's had premonitions before but these
are frightening, especially when she visualizes his new
ship going down in a gale. How does she go about warning
Pierce without his thinking she's crazy or a witch?
This second book in the MacInness Legacy trilogy is every
bit as intriguing as the first one was. I was especially
impressed with how this story flowed right along with the
first book and then the time came for the scenes to be
intertwined, they were done so flawlessly. Alexandra and
Pierce are made for each other but will forces beyond their
control keep them apart? I think my favorite character in
this book was Newton, the iguana. I look forward to reading
more from Sandy Moffett.
