Theresa’s Secret Legacy is a work of Christian fiction by author Ray McGinley. The title character is the sister of our protagonist, Chris Brennan, who sadly receives the news that his sister is dead right at the novel’s opening. When the police examine her surroundings, they decide that depression and suicide must be the cause of death, but Chris suspects otherwise. He knows his sister, and so he begins his journey to discover why her life has ended so tragically soon. What follows is a journey to uncover the court case Theresa was reporting on, wherein a Native American tribe attempts to fight for their right to build a new casino. As the plot thickens, Chris relies on his faith to guide him to the ugly truth about Theresa’s death.
For a work of Christian fiction, the central concept of faith was dealt with delicately and very much as a background feature of the novel, which I thought was a masterful stroke. Chris Brennan is a very likeable protagonist who cares very deeply for his sister, and the plot that Ray McGinley has constructed around Chris’s desire to uncover the real truth is well conceived and cleverly done. Fans of cozy mystery type stories will certainly appreciate that angle, and those who enjoy a good legal drama won’t be disappointed either. Theresa’s Secret Legacy is a winding, intriguing tale with heart at its core, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a non-explicit but exciting drama to curl up with.
