There MUST be another book. There just MUST!
This book was fantastic. Epic, even. I DEVOURED this novel. just like with the first novel, this book is fast paced and highly compelling. You can't turn away from it. It demands your full attention.
A big part of this book is dealing with William's death. That brought upon chaos. With financial trouble things were a mess. Lane is trying to keep it all together. To build it all back up and to lead the family. Throw in all the supporting character with helping, or not, and it really kept things interesting.
Gin. She has some decisions to make and it was very relatable being on board while she made them. I am waiting for it to all implode. For everything to come out. Its going to be a chapter not to miss!
I loved getting more Lizzie, Mack and Jeff. Their roles are just as fun to read. They there is Edward. He might be my favorite character of all. His part of the book is full of spoilers so I will leave you with the fact that it is WOW.
All in all the Baldwine family kept it interesting! The second novel in the bourbon kings series leaves you on your toes from start to finish. A compelling read you can't put down. Ward is perfection, as usual.
I need more and I cannot wait until we get it!
#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward delivers the second novel in her Bourbon Kings series—a sweeping saga of a Southern dynasty struggling to maintain a façade of privilege and prosperity, while secrets and indiscretions threaten its very foundation…
In Charlemont, Kentucky, the Bradford family is the crème de la crème of high society—just like their exclusive brand of bourbon. And their complicated lives and vast estate are run by a discrete staff who inevitably become embroiled in their affairs. This is especially true now, when the apparent suicide of the family patriarch is starting to look more and more like murder…
No one is above suspicion—especially the eldest Bradford son, Edward. The bad blood between him and his father is known far and wide, and he is aware that he could be named a suspect. As the investigation into the death intensifies, he keeps himself busy at the bottom of a bottle—as well as with his former horse trainer’s daughter. Meanwhile, the family’s financial future lies in the perfectly manicured hands of a business rival, a woman who wants Edward all to herself.
Everything has consequences; everybody has secrets. And few can be trusted. Then, at the very brink of the family’s demise, someone thought lost to them forever returns to the fold. Maxwell Bradford has come home. But is he a savior...or the worst of all the sinners?
