A Lover's Vow - Brenda Jackson

A Lover's Vow
Brenda Jackson
Mira, Apr 28 2015, $7.99
ISBN: 9780778318002

Dalton Granger is very happy for his two brothers who have found love (see Jace in A Brother’s Honor and Caden in A Man's Promise), but he chooses to remain a steadfast confirmed bachelor.  However, Dalton loathes admitting even to himself let alone his siblings that the mutual hostility between him and private investigator Jules Bradford, sister of Jace’s new wife Shana, disturbs him.

Jules investigates the homicide of Dalton’s mother over fifteen years ago in which their dad went to prison for committing uxoricide.  As Dalton assists Jules, their squabbling ends with respect and love as each realizes that their skirmishes were a defense mechanism to hide from the truth of how they really feel.

The third and final Granger romantic suspense is a rousing climax to an enjoyable miniseries though newbies need to start with the previous releases.  The overarching whodunit is superbly handled while the changing relationship between the last standing Granger and the Bradford sister enhances a thrilling finish.
