~The Legacy Tree~

by Rida Allen 

      Heroine: tall, plump or more

     Robyn Douglass and Erik Richards have been fast friends ever since they met as pre-teens at a family campground.   A return trip to the same campground years later soon turns into a steamy sojourn when the rains come pouring down and trap the two friends in their tent. 

    But can Robyn and Erik live with the change in their relationship once the sun returns from behind the clouds?

      What worked for me:

      The prologue was wonderful; I really could hear the two pre-teens talking "at" each other.

      The love scenes were very sensual, but tastefully done.

     Size-wise Robyn was definitely well-rounded, but the author leaves it up to the reader to decide just how abundant her curves are.

What didn't work for me:    

       Being the talkative, pushy kinda gal I am, I couldn't really get into Robyn or Erik's heads as far as how they came to let their new romance stall.

       I know, I know.  There really are twenty-five year old virgins in the world. But it always surprises me to find one in a non-inspirational contemporary novel.

        I love details.  This is why I read traditional Regencies.  The bulk of their pages are made up of such minutiae that only a detail-oriented person could put up with.  I think "The Legacy Tree" could have been that much richer had there been more background information woven into its pages.

Overall:

   This sweet novella was a fast, fun read, especially if you cherish friends-turned-lovers stories. (Keep an eye out for Erik's brother's story: "Truth and Lies".)

Warning: there are some very steamy passages in this book.

   If you liked  "The Legacy Tree" you might also enjoy "Love at Large", "Miracles", "A Worthy Heir", "Carried Away", "More to Love""Etta Mae's Little Theory", "His Seductive Revenge", "Love by the Pound", "Tales from the Heart", "Teacher's Pet", or "Too Much Temptation".
