BLURB FROM GOODREADS:
Kate, Jenny, and Mandy. Langston Lockwood’s daughters. His tyranny drove them away. His suicide draws them home. They inherit his land, his millions, and his mysteries. Meet the women of the Rocking L and the men who come into their lives. Together, they begin the journey to discover the truth about The Lockwood Legacy. From the pain of the past they find the strength to build a dynasty.
“Someone murdered Langston Lockwood, and regardless of how he had treated them all, she owed it to her father to find out who did it.”
I like being invested to the story of these three sisters. The book is told on three different POV’s and I thought it was going to confuse me, but it actually worked for me instead. I became more into the story because of it and I understand the characters even better.
People said Langston Lockwood killed himself. But her three daughters have a different theory. Its up to them to bring justice to their fathers death and found out who the culprit is.
Its great that the mystery doesn’t end even though we found out what truly happened. Through out the book, you’ll really find yourself wondering and asking about what really went down when Langston Lockwood put a bullet on his head. See, Langston isn’t the most polite person in their town. He pissed off a lot of people when he was still alive that’s why anyone could have done it.
I really did not guessed the conclusion so that’s why I liked the mystery in this book. Don’t you just love books that keeps you guessing? What I didn’t like though was how it was revealed. It was a bit flat ad it was too early to reveal it that’s why the thrill was snatched away from me. But its great that, like I said above, the mystery doesn’t end even though we found out what truly happened. Turns out, something big is happening behind them and I can’t wait to find out what it is on the following books.
The best part here are sisters. I adore every characters in here. Even the guys! I love how different sisters are but how wonderful they are together. The romance was not that highlighted but its there and it was simple and sweet.
Overall, Langstons Daughters is a great series starter. The characters are good and it has a bit of everything. Perfect for your bookclub!
Juliette Harper is the pen name used by the writing team of Patricia Pauletti and Rana K. Williamson. Like the characters of their debut series, The Lockwood Legacy, Juliette is a merging of their creative energies.
Pauletti, an Easterner of Italian descent, is an accomplished musician with an eye for art and design. Williamson, a Texan from a long line of hardheaded Scots, knows the world of the Lockwoods like the back of her hand.
“We decided to write under a pen name because neither one of us by ourselves could have created Kate, Jenny, Mandy, and their world,” says Pauletti. “Juliette is a little bit of us both. We want to be her when we grow up.”
“Patti teases me that I just don’t want to own up to writing a book with romance in it,” Williamson adds, “but that’s not true. I like the Lockwood women and the way they tackle everything life throws at them. And before we’re done, they’ll be ducking a lot. I imagine coming into the office every day and saying, ‘Okay Juliette, what’s going to happen now?’ She tells us, and we get it down on paper.”
