REVIEWER:  Brenda Larnell | RATING: A
REVIEW: After reading the long awaited novel, A LOVER’S VOW, that vowed to expose the killer of Sylvia Granger, mother to Jace, Cade & Dalton, I must say that I was not disappointed. The prolific Brenda Jackson gives us a whopper of a story to end the mystery of who killed Sylvia and to end the series of the Granger brothers.

As in the previous two novels, the setting is Charlottesville, Virginia, the home of the Grangers, and a lush, and beautiful area that screamed “money”.

The plot, of course, centers around the mystery of who killed Sylvia Granger and why. Let me say that inspite of the clues Mrs. Jackson laid out in the previous two novels, I was still W A Y off in my guess as to who killed Sylvia, and W A Y, W A Y off as to the reason she was killed. I won't spoil it for any one who has not read this novel, but I have a feeling that you will be shocked too!

The hero, Dalton Granger and the heroine Jules Bradford can certainly be nominated for the hottest couple if the year in Romance novels. The chemistry between them is sizzling. Of the three brothers, I pick Dalton as my favorite. Jace (A BROTHER’S HONOR) and Caden (A MAN’S PROMISE) are true Brenda Jackson alpha, millionaire, handsome heroes, but Dalton’s swag stands out. The heroine, Jules is a perfect match for Dalton because like him, she pushes that proverbial envelope in the way she lives her life.

This is a must read series if you are a true follower of Brenda Jackson. Her writing skills are on point in this last story of the Granger Trilogy. It's a good possibility that she will piggyback on this Granger series and write about some of the interesting side characters that are introduced. (Hint- the men hired by Sheppard Granger to guard his sons.) Pick up a copy of A LOVER'S VOW. I vow that you will not be disappointed!
