Title: A Lover's Vow by Brenda Jackson
Genre: Romantic Suspense
What I loved about the book: I loved that although this is the third (and final) book in the Granger series, it worked well as a standalone. Since I've read the previous books, I was able to pick up the suspenseful storyline right away. The plot is centered around the three Granger brothers (Jace, Caden, and Dalton) who have returned home to bury their grandfather. They made a deathbed promise to run the family business and find out who killed their mother, Sylvia Granger, fifteen years ago. Their father is incarcerated for her murder, but of course, they believe he's innocent.
The romance in this book centers around Dalton Granger and Jules Bradford. He meets her at a nightclub when she's leaving and he hires a private investigator to find her. Even though the attraction is strong between them, they're determined to resist one another for as long as they can. I also loved that the killer of Sylvia Granger is finally revealed.
What I didn't love about the book: I didn't love that there was a lot going on in this book. To me, it seemed to be all over the place with a multitude of characters to track while trying to figure out who was the killer. Although this novel was supposed to highlight the romance between Dalton and Jules, there were several other romances and affairs interwoven with the plot. And while the sex was great between the two main characters, I think she pushed the envelope from romance to erotica.
Overall, I felt like this was something different from Brenda and I appreciated the mystery/romance storyline. If you love romantic series, this one would be great to add to your collection.
Thanks for reading my latest review. I hope you'll return when the next one is posted!
