Publisher's Summary

The complete Carter Legacy audiobook collection in one volume.

Tangle Web - The Carter Legacy, Book One

Cassandra Grayson leads a quiet life managing a library in Queens, NY. There’s only one thing missing...her sister.

Cassandra hasn’t seen her sister since the night their wealthy father died from a massive heart attack. She had only been five years old at the time and can barely recall the events of that night. All she can remember is that men came to the house and that it was the last time she saw her sister. 

She hires a private investigator, but he turns up dead. It's clear someone doesn’t want her looking into her family’s past. When wealthy businessman Jackson Evans stumbles into her life, with problems of his own, they realize his family and hers are inexplicably entwined in a web of deceit and murder, spanning two decades.

One by one, everyone who was in her home the night of her Father’s death begin to die under suspicious circumstances. It's a race against time to uncover the truth before she becomes the next victim.

Twisted Ties - The Carter Legacy, Book Two

Chloe Carter has spent the last 20 years as a ghost, hiding in the shadows, letting the world believe she was dead. She was running from the nightmares of her childhood.

Finally able to re-join the with her sister Cassandra back in her life, she desperately wants to leave her past firmly behind her. However, they have two half-sisters, one very much dead, and one possibly a psychopath. 

Things are not looking up. Parker Evans, a man whose own father caused her family nothing but pain, refuses to be ignored. She wants to loathe him, but they need each other. They both have secrets, a legacy of misery left by their fathers and if they ever want to be free, together they must uncover the truth.

Blood Ties - The Carter Legacy, Book Three

Katie Osbourne has never thought of herself as a Carter, let alone thought she had two older half-sisters. For the last eight years, all she wanted to do was raise her daughter, Hailey, and try to put her past behind her. Only her past wouldn’t let her go.

With her ex-husband in prison and her psychotic twin sister dead, she’d thought she was finally free. That was until Detective Dexter came swaggering into her life with his vivid green eyes and quick smile. It’s enough to make a girl want what she knows she can’t have.

Part of the past she is trying so hard to run from is tangled up in a sticky mess with his family, and he has no idea. Her violent, dangerous ex escapes from prison, and she finds herself being stalked; she has no choice but to run again.

This time, running isn’t so easy. She must find the courage to tell Dex the truth and stand with her sisters or run. This time with fatal consequences.

Harlequin novel or mystery?

Felt like a romantic novel most of the time. Barely caught some parts of the book that were important bc I was mainly fast forwarding all the love scenes.

Narration

So I enjoyed the story but the narration left me cringing on a regular basis it was so horrible. If I could have give zero stars for it I would have. I was invested in the story so I continued to book 2 and 3. If I didn’t have issues with my eyes and depended on audiobooks I would have purchased 2 and 3 to read. So story was very enjoyable but listening not so much.

Horrible narration!

The story is not bad, well written. The narration destroys it all. Ms. Gainey can't project male characters or make much distinction between voices. She reads in a way that makes the feelings sound trite.

Good story...

The books are so good. I listen while I commute back and forth to work and definitely makes the drive faster. However lady who does the reading needs instruction of how to pronounce words....it is pretty irritating.

I loved these books!

Not often do I listen to a story that has me on the edge of my seat throughout the books! The story line was different than I had ever heard before and kept me guessing. The development of the characters was great also. This was truly an awesome listen!

Wow, Very Intense From Start To Finish

It all started with a very sick and evil pedophile whose sins wove a web of misery and death for generations. Chaos reigns, and the body count of both the innocent and villains seems never ending. Love eventually conquers all, but not without scars. This series definitely must be read sequentially, I had trouble putting it down. It was much more intense than a cozy mystery, and the romance was a welcome relief from the drama. There is some foul language, but the descriptions of crime scenes are not overly gory, nor are the love scenes graphic. I found the narrator very believable with a good range of voices for a wide variety of characters and emotions. The plot was complex with lots of twists and surprises, and the characters were well developed. I would definitely recommend this series if you like dramatic, romantic, mysteries.

fully enjoyable lisgen

I found the story line very interesting, Charioteers fairly well developed tho they did all seem to be very similar. I certainty didn't guess the end till the last few minutes of each book and then it was just a vague suspicion.It could perhaps have been a bit less graphic with the love scenes as it was a mystery, but that is just my opinion. I hope Wendy Saunders has another audible book out soon. The narrator was neither the best, nor the worst I have heard. She does seem to have a bit of trouble with pronunciation of some words but not enough to render the book hard to listen to.. Practice will I am sure bring improvement. In the mean time the editor should be responsible for corrections imo. All in all I do recommend this book . It will draw you in and keep you listening.

Meh

Story’s just OK. Writing seems a little stilted, partially because of the writing itself and partially because of the performance. Narration is awful. Like, seriously awful. Narrator *really* needs to work on pronunciation... Words like “epitome.” I would much rather voice actors narrate in their own voice than in “accents” they can’t pull off.

Not exactly what I was expecting.

I bought this after searching for a crime/thriller box set. I don't think it really fits in that category and is really a bit more of a romance with a twist collection. That being said, the stories were enjoyable if predictable. No great literary discovery, but something easy to listen to whilst getting the housework done. One niggle for me was the narrator's mispronunciation of some words - as a professional I would expect her to research how to pronounce unfamiliar words. Epitome and draught are not that unusual but I found myself shouting out loud after she mispronounced epitome for the third time!

A very good box set, great story, gripping plot.

A great tale of the Carter sisters. A pity all the main characters were all museum quality human specimens, both female and male, who all escaped injury, except from some trauma, which will be eased by their wealth, of course. All the good folks lived happily ever after and all the baddies are dead or in jail. A lovely story, would have been much better with a bit more of an edge and a bit less fantasy. Still a very good listen

Very captivating

I have to admit, I am a pure Stephen King Fan and didn't think that I would enjoy listening to this book, but I decided to go out on a limb and try this book! I am so pleased that I did, as this book does seem to make you feel that you are in the story as an onlooker, raking up different emotions and testing your detective skills in a way. I was very sad when I was near the end of this book, I wanted it to continue on a lot longer. I am very impressed how the Author has intertwined her stories, which lead back to one place. This is definitely worth listening to and has taught me to open my 'ears' more and broaden my library with different authors, as you never know how good a book can be until you listen on a wider scale.
