Legacy Road - A Book Review

Book Description:  Wes Watkins's journalism career took off when he was asked to eulogize Michael Gavin, a stranger to Wes but a hometown hero to the humble folks of Talking Creek, Georgia. While researching Gavin's life, Wes was confronted with an estranged relationship of his own that he wasn't prepared to address, having ignored for years the occasional letters from his imprisoned father. Wes has chosen to focus instead on his growing career and his budding relationship with Emmy. His life is looking up . . . until his marriage proposal to Emmy goes south. Left to wonder if he can reconcile with Emmy before she is deployed to Afghanistan, Wes can no longer avoid the other reconciliation that troubles him. But when Wes uncovers a painful truth about his parents' past, patching things up with his father may prove impossible. Wes's life is close to spiraling out of control. Will Wes learn to forgive? Or will the best year of his life turn into the worst?

My Thoughts:  I really don't like to give negative reviews, but I see no other way around it with this book.  No matter how hard I tried I could not get interested in it.  In the beginning of the book it jumped around from character to character and found myself very confused, not really knowing who was who and what was going on.  By the middle of the book I just wanted it to be over, it never picked up pace for me or captured my interest in anyway.  I have since learned that Legacy Road is the sequel to Hero's Tribute.  Maybe it would of made a difference if I would of read it first, but as it is now I have no desire to read that one either.
