Michael Phillips draws the Secrets of the Shetlands series to a close with The Legacy. I always struggle saying goodbye to characters, and Loni, David, Audney, and the rest are no exception!

While at times I found the pacing a tad slow, I enjoyed reading Emily's and Loni's parallel plots. Brogan turned into a joy of a character, as did the new reverend; Phillips bravely introduced new characters late in the game - and succeeded. I also found the side plot of Brogan's father and Winston Churchill fascinating! Churchill is such an institution, I was concerned that he might be under- or overdone, but I needn't have worried. Phillips' careful hand and exquisite development brought him to life and made me curious to dig deeper into his own life and history. (I'm sure this means a[nother] trip to Blenheim is in order!)

I know Phillips enjoys bringing previous characters into new books, so I hope to see Loni and David appear in future works. The Legacy is a winner!
