Legacy of Lies by Elizabeth Chandler (Review)

(From bn.com)
Something is haunting Megan...She has seen Scarborough House only in her dreams. Now Megan was here, visiting the grandmother she'd never met, and her new found cousin Matt, too handsome by far, who wanted her to disappear. Grandmother was so cold, so distant. Why did she finally reach out to Megan after all these years? And why was Matt so determined to call her his "almost" cousin? For all her prophetic dreams, nothing could have prepared Megan for Matt's astonishment when he first saw her... or the reaction of perfect strangers who looked at her with fascination- and fear...Megan thought she knew who she was. Until she came to Grandmother's house. Until she met Matt, who angered and attracted her as no boy had ever done before. Then she began having dreams again, of a life she never lived, a love she never knew... a secret that threatened to drive her to the grave.
I'm  going to state this right up, I loved this book, but it scared me to death. I read this book right before I went to bed, now if you know me I'm not really big into ghost stories or paranormal books, and well of coarse I got to the one creepy part in the book and it almost kept me up all night in fright. All because I wanted a refresher from my romantic comedies and fantasies, and picked up this short read. 

Legacy of Lies is the first in a series of books called the Dark Secrets that have been recently reprinted in omnibus. Where each girl tells about their "secret", and now since I only own the one I want the rest. The book had a tint of everything that I like to read, fantasy, reality, romance and danger, but also had some paranormal stuff in it too. Legacy of Lies also had some stuff about reincarnations in it too, which I like to think is real sometimes. I really liked the main two characters Megan and Matt (which could be confusing when reading really quickly and well you just look for the first few letters of their name, like I do sometimes). For Megan I would have to say she was a smart girl, that had a problem, not a bad problem but a good one I would say. Matt was someone who I thought was a jerk in the beginning, and at the end was actually acting like a jerk for a reason.

Legacy of Lies is a read that I should have read awhile ago (and written the review awhile ago also), but was stuck on my list to buy books. I really liked this story, but since I got rid of my rating scale I'm not giving it a rating...

(This is something new I'm going to add)
