my-review_43_orig - Edited

Broken Promise by Tara Thomas is the third and final book in the romantic suspense Sons of Broad series. There were also three prequel novellas that helped open up the series before the full length novels began. Each of the books switches the main characters/couple but the overall story has been built from the very beginning so it really is best to read the series in order.

This third book centers around the oldest of the three Benedict brothers that have been the center of the series. Kipling is looked at as the head of the Benedict family being the oldest and now it’s his turn to find love with Alyssa Adams, the very same Alyssa who is a police officer that arrested him in the past.

Alyssa became a police officer after the murder of her older sister ten years before. Now signs are pointing to her sister’s death being tied into the threat that the Benedict brothers have found themselves up against. The pair team up together to get answers and find out who has been after the entire family before it is too late.

I have been following this series from the very beginning and was quite excited to finally be able to get answers as to who was behind all of the danger. The unknown gentlemen and his motives for murder and mayhem are finally revealed in the action packed conclusion to the Sons of Broad series. This was a great conclusion that included all of the previous characters and gave a final look into them all in the wrap up. A great series overall for the fans of romantic suspense.

I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
