Book (Mama) Review: A Brother's Honor

By Marlene Engel

Granger Aeronautics, which was once number one as the provider of aerospace products and services, has lost a lot of clients in the past year and was in jeopardy of going under. Fifteen years prior, Sheppard Granger (one of the owners of Granger Aeronautics) was convicted of a crime that he didn’t commit. On Sutton Hill, the Granger Family estate, Sylvia Granger was found shot to death. According to authorities, her husband’s fingerprints were found on the murder weapon. Determined to run the business himself, prove his son’s innocence and raise his three teenage grandsons, Richard Granger would die fighting for the things that meant the most to him. And on his deathbed, he asked his grandsons (Jace, Caden and Dalton), who are now all grown up and each successful in their own rite, to promise him that they would not only find out what was causing their once successful company to fail, but to do it while trying to prove their father’s innocence.

Determined to bring Granger Aeronautics back to the top company that it once was would be a challenge, especially since they didn’t know who in the company they could trust. Knowing that they needed more help than they were able to do on their own, they decided to hire Shana Bradford of Bradford Crisis Management. Shana is not only great at her job, she’s also strikingly beautiful with a rule that she would never get involved with a client. But from the first day that Jace Granger met with Shana, they both knew that keeping their relationship strictly professional wasn’t going to be easy. Will working side by side, day in and day out prove too difficult for Jace and Shana? Or will they throw out the saying that mixing business with pleasure is never a good idea?

I really didn’t know what to expect when I decided to read A Brother's Honor. I’ve read several Harlequin novels, but have to admit that they’re not my first choice when choosing a book. I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. The characters were relatable, the storyline caught my attention right from the beginning and it was full of unexpected events. I was enjoying the book so much that I didn’t want it to end. To my surprise, this was book one in a series. While this book had the three brothers, it mostly followed Jace. The second book that is due out next summer follows a different brother, Caden. I am beyond excited knowing that I can continue to read about these amazing brothers. I loved this book and would definitely recommend it to others.

Thanks to McAllister PR for the book in exchange for an honest review.
