    Brandon s Bride is the final book in the Family Secrets series, and it s my favourite of the three Although I ve enjoyed them all, the slow burn romance and the answers to all our questions had me enjoying this one a wee bit .Although Brandon s Bride can be read as a standalone, I do recommend reading the prior books first Throughout the first two books questions appear that leave you with theories as to what will happen and how everything will come together, leaving you desperate for the Brandon s Bride is the final book in the Family Secrets series, and it s my favourite of the three Although I ve enjoyed them all, the slow burn romance and the answers to all our questions had me enjoying this one a wee bit .Although Brandon s Bride can be read as a standalone, I do recommend reading the prior books first Throughout the first two books questions appear that leave you with theories as to what will happen and how everything will come together, leaving you desperate for the answers that come about in Brandon s Bride.In addition to getting the answers we re desperate for, Brandon s Bride also provides a wonderful romance that will have you hooked As I m a big fan of slow burns, this one was my favourite of the three I fell in love with the characters right away and could not get enough of their developing romance It developed wonderfully around the mystery, keeping me hooked throughout.As much as I loved this one, I would have liked a wee bitof the family I really loved the family and would have loved to get to see a lot of them in this one, instead of simply seeing them at the end However, this was not enough to remove my enjoyment of this one, as it was a great end to the series

    Brandon s Bride4 StarsThis 3rd and final installment is a significant improvement on the previous book Not only is the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Maximillian Ferringer explained and in a satisfying manner , but the romance between the cold and aloof Brandon and the feisty Victoria is intense and believable While the details regarding Max s secretive profession aren t all that surprising, the circumstances leading up to his disappearance are original, and leave the reader with a Brandon s Bride4 StarsThis 3rd and final installment is a significant improvement on the previous book Not only is the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Maximillian Ferringer explained and in a satisfying manner , but the romance between the cold and aloof Brandon and the feisty Victoria is intense and believable While the details regarding Max s secretive profession aren t all that surprising, the circumstances leading up to his disappearance are original, and leave the reader with a better understanding of the man Brandon and Victoria s relationship is the highlight of the book as these two lonely people struggle against their attraction, but ultimately realize that they are better together than apart Even though the inclusion of young children in romance novels is not one of my preferred tropes, Victoria s son, Randy, is simply charming and his scenes with Brandon are very engaging The Hot Shot and firefighting storyline provide additional tension and suspense to both the mystery and the romance All in all, a satisfying end to the series

    Rating 4.5I really loved Brandon s Bride From the past books we know that Brandon was the oldest child of Max, staid, responsible who from an early age was an adult taking on the anger of a bitter mother, an absent father and later on his two siblings He worked hard to get back his mother s property and she in turn called him, cold, money minded, workaholic He fell in love with Julia, married her but he was still worked too hard even when she urged him to spend time with her, then she died an Rating 4.5I really loved Brandon s Bride From the past books we know that Brandon was the oldest child of Max, staid, responsible who from an early age was an adult taking on the anger of a bitter mother, an absent father and later on his two siblings He worked hard to get back his mother s property and she in turn called him, cold, money minded, workaholic He fell in love with Julia, married her but he was still worked too hard even when she urged him to spend time with her, then she died and Brandon felt like his father and ran, roaming all around the world courting adventure and trying to lose his money unsuccessfully and also investigating his father s death.He has a lead, his father was friends with three people and one disappeared and one is still alive, so he takes a job as a hotshot and rents a place to live, Victoria s ranch.Victoria comes from a big loving family, she has a struggling ranch and a eight year old to raise Her ex husband turned out to be worthless, a druggie So, when she sees Brandon, sparks ignite immediately.For me the book worked mainly because I liked how these two communicated Brandon was a little closed off, weighed down by the death of his wife who he thought did not die of a simple mugging and on top of that the similarities he felt he had with his father, but Victoria didn t let him back off, whenever he tried to put some distance between them she made him talk things out Like adults they air the attraction between them and Victoria acknowledges she doesn t want to act on it, atleast not at that moment I enjoyed the scene when Brandon wants to give her some money, to ease things through, and Victoria loses it and then Brandon comes to the realization, he gives everything but himself to people I also did enjoy finally finding out what Max did view spoiler he was CIA and Brandon s wife did die of a mugging hide spoiler

    Most people classify this book as romantic suspense and that description applies although I feel it would just as easily be described as a simple drama I enjoyed reading Brandon s Bride because it is well written as the other Lisa Garner books I ve read in the DD Warren series and the characters seem like real people.

    Lisa Gardner is a well known crime novelist who has several books to her credit A lot of people may not know that she started out her career writing under the pseudonym Alicia Scott with Silhouette Intimate Moments Signet is now releasing three of the Alicia Scott novels as the newly renamed Family Secrets series Brandon s Bride is the third novel in the series and the conclusion Gardner s trademark sharp writing style and knack for suspense is definitely present, along with the sizzling rom Lisa Gardner is a well known crime novelist who has several books to her credit A lot of people may not know that she started out her career writing under the pseudonym Alicia Scott with Silhouette Intimate Moments Signet is now releasing three of the Alicia Scott novels as the newly renamed Family Secrets series Brandon s Bride is the third novel in the series and the conclusion Gardner s trademark sharp writing style and knack for suspense is definitely present, along with the sizzling romance and well defined characters of Alicia Scott It s a great combination from a very talented author, that you won t want to miss.What I liked Having been a fan of Lisa Gardner s writing for awhile now, I was somewhat skeptical of this series because I was worried it was before Gardner had honed her craft and might be less like the author I had grown to enjoy But that was not the case Brandon s Bride was still very much a Lisa Gardner esque story It still have all the urgency, the suspense and nail biting moments I longed for and it had something new, a littleromance and sizzle than some of Gardner s later offerings Though I have not read the first two novels in the Family Secrets series, I am now intrigued to find out how the stories with Brandon s other siblings factor into the outcome of this one Gardner did an amazing job of making this a stand alone novel, without giving too much away from the other books, while still giving the reader enough background to keep them from feeling lost The characters in this book were simply enjoyable to read about Victoria is a single mom with a young son to raise and a ranch to make successful I liked the fact that Gardner did not make her into a hard woman She had a lot on her plate and could have easily come off as bitter, but Victoria is anything but She knew what she wanted and she wasn t necessarily afraid of it, but maybe a bit gun shy since her former husband turned out to be what I would call a dud Brandon is the real star of this book though He hasn t had it easy With the lose of his wife still much on his mind, he delves into trying to find out what happened to his father I liked the fact that Gardner allows the reader to see that Brandon is seeking a lotthan just a reason for his father s absence, he is also looking for keys to learning about himself as well I liked all of the information about Brandon s job as a hotshot and it was evenpoignant considering this summer s tragedy with the deaths of nineteen hotshots overrun while fighting a fire It brought a few tears to my eyes, but this part of the book was well written and gave insight into what these guys go through to serve and protect.The romance was hot in this one and Brandon and Victoria s attraction was palpable even from their first meeting I think Gardner did a great job of showing how two people with tragedy in their past can come together and have a shot at a great future I thought the romantic elements were well done and did not take over the book The balance was good and love scenes were steaming What I didn t like I may have hadsympathy for Brandon s father s past, had I read the other books I m not sure Max was a bit too over the top for me His backstory was just a little to unbelievable I was glad that Brandon and his siblings got the closure they needed with finding out what really happened with Max But I did feel like it was a bit too much Bottom Line Other than that, I don t have any complaints about the book It was good It had good balance, great characters and the suspense was certainly present I liked the fact that Victoria was drawn into the action and that Brandon got the closure he needed inthan one area of his life It s a good one, don t miss it

    I wish that there would have beenwith the siblings with this book, what little there was with them was good I also really liked Brandon and his fish out of water role with Victoria and her ranch I liked that Victoria didn t play games, pretty much let Brandon know what was going on What did seem a little too much for me was Max s background While I liked that the siblings learned what happened and could finally put their past behind them, Max s past was over the top.

    I was pretty disappointed in this book as Lisa Gardner is a regular author that I read, however this is an earlier work written under her pseudonym Alicia Scott in her earlier days I found this story about three siblings from different mothers searching for the truth about their family and the mysterious disappearance of their father, an ok read but really it read slow to me There were also so many characters introduced at once in the beginning that I found myself flip flopping back and forth I was pretty disappointed in this book as Lisa Gardner is a regular author that I read, however this is an earlier work written under her pseudonym Alicia Scott in her earlier days I found this story about three siblings from different mothers searching for the truth about their family and the mysterious disappearance of their father, an ok read but really it read slow to me There were also so many characters introduced at once in the beginning that I found myself flip flopping back and forth to keep it straight

    It took me awhile to get through this book as I don t get much time to actually sit down and read an old fashioned book, but once I got into this book, I wasn t able to put it down and just had to find out what was going on with Brandon Ferringer This has been quite an enjoyable three book series for me from Alicia Scott Lisa Gardner
