A Man’s Promise by Brenda Jackson is an intriguing continuation of suspense and mystery that’s accented with love, romance and family.  Mrs. Jackson penned a novel that keeps us guessing and teetering on the edge of our seats.  I was drawn completely into this continuum of the Granger Brothers Series. 

Caden Granger is a highly sought after and successful sax player that leads a band.  He left home and dedicated himself to his music after his mother being murdered; his father was convicted of killing her and after losing the love of his life.  He returns home at the request of his grandfather and stays to fulfill a promise after his death. 

Shiloh Timmons returns home after to open a wine boutique, to a severed relationship with her mother and attempted to inform her former love of what ended their relationship but he would not hear her.

We experience the journey of what their returns home brings about as well as the continued quest to find out who killed Sylvia Granger.

a great read that was packed with emotional moments….

The Real Thing by Brenda Jackson was a great read that was packed with emotional moments. It raises an eyebrow, makes you want to punch someone, saddens you and elates you….all in the same breath. The tale of the journey of Trinity Matthews and Adrian Westmoreland is definitely all the aforementioned and more. As we witness the blossoming of their love, we also witness abuse of power and affluence. Once again, I say, well done Mrs. Jackson.

 Trice Hickman penned a novel that held you enticingly enthralled from the onset.  Break All My Rules is the journey of Erica Stanford who was born of wealth and is an owner of an upscale boutique and Jerome Kimbrough who is a street savvy sanitation worker and dedicated father that has changed his life’s path.

This tale begins when these two meet during jury duty and there’s an instant attraction.  As they try to build a future, their union is plagued with drama from the people around them from non-associates to family to ex‘s .  Having to deal with the obvious differences of their life styles and upbringings, things are farther complicated by their family, familial connections and others that are doing things that add strife to their struggling beginning.   We witness their trials and triumphs then a long held secret explodes…. read this 5 star novel and see if their love can endure.  I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
