I recently read my first Meryl Sawyer book & loved it. So I was excited to start this one when I found it. However the edge of the seat suspense that I found in the other book was severly lacking in this one. And honestly when it did get suspenseful at the end, I was so annoyed with the story line that I didn't care if they did kill off all the "good guys". It takes place in wine country & there is a lot of details of what it takes to run an old fashioned winery, which didn't interest me. It does has a hot Navy SEAL, & includes some great sex scenes, so it's not all bad. The Navy SEAL receives a desparate note from a man claiming to be his father, that he needs help now. He takes off to discover a family he never knew he had, plus winds up trying to solve the mystery of how his father suddenly died.
This book has twists and turns that you don't expect. Sexy, tense, thrilling...all of the above. I loved it!
Navy SEAL Brody Hawke discovers a twin brother and a father he never knew he had. When his father dies, Brody travels to Napa Valley for some answers. There he meets Tori Anderson, his brother Elliott's fiance. Sparks fly between Tori and Brody while they try to solve the mystery of his father's death. Good, quick read- I wouldn't say this is one of Sawyer's better books, though.
Brody Hawke is shocked when he receives a letter from a man who insists he is Brody's father. Brody doesn't believe it until he sees a pictures of his identical twin brother, Elliott. Traveling to Napa Valley, he finds his father has died and he has inherited part of the family vineyard. Brody also meets Tori Anderson, Elliott's fiancee. Drawn together, Brody and Tori set out to solve the mystery of his father's death.
This is a standalone romantic suspense book by Meryl Sawyer. I learned a lot about the running of an old-fashioned winery which I found interesting. But, I found the book wasn't particularly suspenseful. The romance wasn't bad. I was just glad that Tori had already decided to split with Elliott before Brody came onto the scene. What I did like was all of the twists and turns in this story. I was very surprised by some of the secrets that were uncovered. I also like the developing relationship between the brothers. My rating: 4 Stars.
