#BookReview :: Antique Legacy (Alicia Trent Series #4) by Eileen Harris

While the almost castle crumbles around them, Alicia desperately searches for the answers she wants and needs. Every creepy room demands a thorough search. Someone is trying to kill her, and she doesn't even know why, let alone, who. Each room she searches is a challenge and each is either fascinating or horrifying. The huge cat now follows her everywhere, even into closed rooms. If she can discover his secret before one of the murder attempts succeeds, maybe she can find the answers she needs.  

 I absolutely love this series….

Alicia is on for another adventure. When she receives a legacy from her family, that she never knew existed, at first she is surprised. Then slowly as it sinks in, she is nervous and apprehensive. She has inherited a house in England and now that she is on her way to check out her inheritance, she also gets to meet her ‘family’ for the first time. Nothing is as she expected. The house is in a patched up condition, the family is not so heart warming but there are lots of antique pieces for her to look up… There are also weird things happening all around that makes it very clear that Alicia is is unwelcome at her own house. But she has a responsibility to decide what to do of her inheritance.

Alone in a different country all together, will Alicia come out alive or is she way over her head?

This book, I have to say, is the one with the darkest storyline in the series. For one, Alicia was all alone – without Barry or Lawrence or Nick to help her out. The action that takes place in the story is also darker than the others. Without giving away any spoilers, all I can say that the series has developed to a point where things get much more complicated. The look into Alicia’s heritage is fascinating though the same cannot be said about her present family members. None of them seem to be particularly likeable even though some of them do redeem themselves in the end. There’s a bit of development in Alicia relationship status that was out of the blue too. And, I have to say that the climax was the best – I didn’t see it coming!

The author’s narration style remains the same, making it easy to get into the story.  I did miss the other characters though. After following the series from the beginning, I have come to like the other’s in Alicia’s life as much and do expect to see more of them each time. Overall, the book keeps up with the rest of the series – its got action and drama that keeps the pages turning!
