Unclaimed Legacy, by Deborah Heal

Abby and Merri discovered an odd computer program that allows them to view history in real time.  But it only works at certain times and places.  The program begins working again while they are house sitting for a friend, and allows them, along with their friend John, to solve a family mystery for the elderly twins that live next door.  In the process, they all get a little more than they bargained for.

This is the second book in a series, and I must say that I enjoyed this even more than the first.  We see the return of two major characters in Abby and Merri.  We also see further development of the character of John, and get to watch his relationship with Abby unfold.  Furthermore we are introduced to a whole new cast of characters who are quite endearing.  I love the characters of Eulah and Beulah.  I find them adorable, and can truly see them in my mind's eye.

I found the writing on this follow up book a bit tighter, and I think the story flowed nicely.  I find the parts of the story where the reader is thrust into history to be incredibly compelling and educational.  This is so much more than your standard time travel story, and the book spans so many genres that I think it will appeal to a wide variety of readers.

I see a lot of growth in this talented author from her first book to her second.  I am excited to see where her writing takes us all in the future.

I received a review copy of this book courtesy of the author in exchange for my honest review.
