So, how many Ladies of Legend books are there?

And in what order do I read them? 

We often get asked these questions. To be honest, the "how many?" question sometimes throws us and we start counting on our fingers. Do we count the mini-series within the big series, and what about that spin-off series that Maddie has? 

The "what order?" question is a little easier. A little. You don't have to read our books in order. They all stand-alone and we believe you can pick up any book and fall in love with Legend and characters. But sometimes readers do want an order, so we've pulled the list together in the order they were published (sort of). This includes boxed sets. 

Here's the order of publication:

Return to Legend - most recent release!

Second Chances by Magdalena Scott

Anne McClain Bradley has returned to Legend, Tennessee after a personal tragedy sent her successful, well-ordered life reeling. Midnight Shelby McClain has offered Anne the apartment over The Emporium, and Anne is cautiously hopeful that her family connections in Legend can be mended after years of hard feelings.

Pete Garrity is new in Legend, having been hired as the general manager of The Legend Post-Dispatch by the newspaper's elderly owner. Pete has a past he won't discuss, and no one in Legend has ever heard of him. As a hideaway, the little town seemed perfect. But now that he finds himself stuck in Legend with no way out, Pete worries that his career is finished. What a surprise to find Anne Bradley in Legend--she might be just the answer to his dilemma.

But every time Anne looks at Pete, she's reminded of the pain she came here to escape.

Legend has a way of healing broken hearts, no matter how longstanding the brokenness. But first one must believe in possibilities...for second chances, and for moving forward with hope.

Return To Legend

The first two books in the Return To Legend series have been released!

Crossroads
by Janet Eaves

Desperation has a way of changing everything.

There is no way anyone could have ever convinced Sharon Clark she’d one day return to Legend, Tennessee.

With her mother playing the leading role of town slut when she was growing up, with the townspeople either pitying her or looking down their noses at her all her young life, with the child she’d carried and hidden from the town’s prying eyes and expected condemnation all those years ago, going back now is just not an option…

But desperation has a way of changing everything….

Marty Fields is a pet psychic. She’s spent a lifetime explaining animal communication to skeptic citizens of her small town. Only Ms. Addie understands her gift.
