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.

A Brother’s Honor was a slow read for me and the story just did not pick up at all. Also, I really could not connect to the characters, Jace and Shana. But there was the intrigue there that keep me reading this story…what it was though, I don’t know. I liked the story well enough and I loved the fact that these Brothers were so close and decided to put their lives on hold to fulfill their grandfathers dying wish, which was for them to come together and save the family’s legacy Granger Aeronautics and get their father out of jail.

This story as all the makings of a made-for TV drama because there was a lot of it going on. We have a family trying to rebuild after their monarch has died. Their father is still in jail for a crime he did not commit. And most of all these brothers must deal with their own personal issues and in this 1st story….a romance trying to survive in the middle of it all. So as I've said, there was a lot going on in A Brother’s honor, but the world building for me was too slow and maybe just a little over descriptive...I don’t think it flowed together very well.

Will this stop me from reading another Brenda Jackson book? Oh, hell no! I love Brenda Jackson, the woman can write her ass off. This book, however was not my glass of wine.

  1. Oh dang yeah it sounds like it's got some major drama going on. Whew. I have this one for review next month. Man I hope I connect with the characters! I had a couple this month that were decent reads but had that same thing. Just couldn't really connect. Thanks for the heads up on it!

  2. Yeah, I hate when that happens. It just takes away from the reading experience.

    I cant wait to see what you think about it Anna ;)

  3. Drama!! lol I started watching Revenge so I've got plenty of drama in my head, but sucks that the story didn't really take off.
