A Brother's Honor (Grangers #1) by Brenda Jackson Review & Giveaway

The Granger brothers left behind their family's Virginia estate—and the bad memories it holds—years ago. But their dying grandfather's request brings them home: to a failing business, a legacy of secrets and a deathbed promise to make things right.As the eldest brother, attorney Jace Granger is determined to take responsibility for Granger Aeronautics, his family's failing business. But the years of mismanagement seem impossible to untangle. As CEO, he hires a consultant to turn the company around. Smart, sexy Shana Bradford is the right person for the job—and the right woman to turn Jace's world upside down.

But the passion between them is jeopardized when old secrets begin to emerge. A woman from Jace's past suddenly reappears. And an explosive discovery changes everything Jace thinks he knows about his mother—and his father, who was convicted of her murder.

Jace Granger tried to leave his family history behind once before. But this time he needs to face the past…or risk losing his future.

Three brothers. One legacy. A lifetime of secrets.

Brenda Jackson is a master storyteller.  A Brother's Honor is the first book in a new series, and after finishing it, I have to say it may be her best series yet if the rest of the books are as great as this one. 

Jace, Dalton and Caden were raised by their grandfather after their dad was imprisoned for murdering their mother.  Now, years later, granddad is dying and so they come back home.  Jace takes the reigns of the family's struggling business but he knows that it's going to take someone with experience with bringing back fledgling companies to their former glory to help him.

He hires consultant Shana Bradford.  Not only does she know what she's talking about, she and Jace also have immediate chemistry.  As their relationship begins to deepen, the brothers begin to work on the other promise they made at their granddad's deathbed - clear their father of the murder of their mother.  But digging deep into the past brings up other secrets, and the family dynamics they believed in the past are changing.

Brimming with sizzling, hot romance, murder, secrets and espionage, A Brother's Honor is a superb romantic suspense.  The characters are well developed and Jackson gives a brief glimpse of what to expect in future installments with the brothers.  The plot pivoted and moved forward at a great pace, with a satisfactory conclusion, yet leaving this reader clamoring for the next book.  Don't miss this one!

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
