As with most of Ms Ward's books her characters are what draw you in. The storyline is well developed as are the people. One of my favorite characters is momma. You'll have to read the book to understand.
In the BDB series each book highlights a certain specific character. In this series you're continually exposed to each of the major players lives with each book. This type of writing makes the storyline the center and allows you to see how each, in this case, family member, is effected by what's happening. I like seeing each character's life progress throughout the series, assuming that will continue, and discovering what their part is in the whole picture as well as their backstory continuing to unfold. Love Lane and Lizzie.
However, I've read a lot of reviews concerning people's disappointment that each story doesn't end with an HEA for the character that's highlighted in the book. If you're expecting this series to be the Kentucky version of the BDB you WILL be disappointed. That's absolutely NOT what this series is. This series is a family saga that's going to continue with each new book. I wouldn't say it's a soap opera as others have described it but it definitely is a sweeping saga right now centered around a specific event and the trainwreck that event leaves for others to clean up. This series doesn't have a lot of hot steamy sex. Instead it allows you to imagine what's going on. It's not really a romance but has a definite romantic tone. I don't know about you but I'm glad JR is writing something so different than the other books she's written.
The plot centers around the death of the patriarch of the family who was an evil bastard. At first it's thought of as a suicide but then turns into something else entirely. The saga looks at each family member, their character pros and cons and to some degree how the father effected their lives and shaped who they have become as adults. In one part Lane talks about how, if he had been the brother kidnapped, that Edward would have come and gotten Lane himself and how Lane didn't have it in him to do the same for Edward. That confession was really movin, honest and a real insight to the character of Lane. This is where JR excels. Lane is a good guy but like all of us he's flawed and JR shows that. I find seeing a whole person much more interesting than seeing only the hero. I'm also really happy to see that not everyone is 20 years old ( as an aging women lol.) I like experiencing characters of all ages. A book seems much more mature, adult and real when there is a wide range of people in different spaces of life, but that's me.
JR is a very good writer. In the romance genre which the BDB is in, she stands out as her books don't come across as so formula being banged out every other month like a James Patterson. Her writing in this series excels as well. I'm looking forward to future books in the series.

I don't think Edward did it.
Lane and Lizzie are working things out, Chantel is out! Edward loves Sutton but can't act on it, Max is back, Gin is up the creek without a paddle and William is DEAD! Things are looking up while going down at the same time in this one...
The characters are real, flawed and relatable, even though they are rich and create the world's best bourbon. The reader can't help but want to be a part of their twisted world. The author keeps the reader on the edge of their seat and doesn't let up on the rollercoaster ride that she takes the readers on.
This book must be read after book 1, otherwise you will have no clue what is going on. A great read!! Impatiently waiting for the end!
