It feels fitting that I’m revisiting the Texas Trilogy after many months because that is EXACTLY what Lorraine Heath did as she published this novella nearly 20 years after the publication of Texas Splendor.
Texas Legacy is the perfect novella to wrap up the series as we see the second generation of the Leigh family – particularly Dallas’ kids. This is basically one long Lorraine Heath epilogue, and I LOVE her epilogues as they always make me emotional. And boy, did this novella make me feel ALL the things. It’s truly amazing that Heath managed to cram in so much heartache and emotion in so few pages.
I absolutely adore the Texas Trilogy series, and Texas Splendor wraps up the main novels with sweet baby Austin’s story, though I don’t think I can call him that anymore as he’s now a man with some emotional baggage. I’ve been looking forward to Austin’s story since Texas Destiny, yet this book is my least favorite in the series. Don’t get me wrong – I still enjoyed this one, but it didn’t pack the same punch as the other books.
I mustache you to read this book. Sorry – it had to be done as I cannot believe I fell in love with a character with a MUSTACHE.
Words fail to express how much I adore Dallas Leigh – he made this book for me. And boy, Lorraine Heath takes you on a journey with this book. This book is filled with so much love, yet so much heartache and pain – very typically Lorraine. But it’s so beautifully done that I cannot fault her for the sad bits.
