•••••••••

REVIEW: SHATTERED FEAR is first of three parts in the introductory story line of Tara Thomas’ SONS OF BROAD romantic, suspense series. This is police officer /investigator Janie Roberts, and wealthy playboy philanthropist Brent Taylor’s story line.

Told from several third person points of view including Janie and Brent SHATTERED FEAR is part one of a three-part serial that focuses on a potential serial killer, and a number of missing and murdered young women in the Charleston area. Police officer Janie Roberts is sent undercover at a local bar where most of the murdered women had last been seen but falling for her number one suspect found our heroine fired before she had a chance to set things in motion. With wealthy philanthropic playboy Brent Taylor by her side, Janie becomes the target of a killer who set his sights on the woman sent to take him down.

The relationship between Brent and Janie is quick to build; an immediate attraction that places our heroine in direct conflict with the demands of her job but a job that she no longer is able to perform. The $ex scenes are intimate and seductive.

SHATTERED FEAR is a quick and thrilling read that sets up the premise and introduces some of the characters in Tara Thomas’ (aka Tara Sue Me) new SONS OF BROAD romance series including Brent’s half-sister attorney Bea Jacobs; bar waitress Tilly Brock; fellow detective and Janie’s friend Alyssa Adams and her boyfriend Mac; and their boss Officer Martin. The requisite evil has yet to be identified but there is more than one player threatening the lives of the people in Charleston, and their purpose unknown. SHATTERED FEAR ends on a cliffhanger-you have been warned.

••••••••

REVIEW:HIDDEN FATE is the second of three parts in the introductory story line of Tara Thomas’ (aka Tara Sue Me) SONS OF BROAD romantic, suspense series. This is police officer /investigator Janie Roberts, and wealthy playboy philanthropist Brent Taylor’s continuing story line. HIDDEN FATE should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately following the events of part one Shattered Fear.

NOTE: If you have not read part one Shattered Fear, there may be some spoilers in my review.

Told from several third person points of view including Janie and Brent HIDDEN FAT is part two of a three-part serial that focuses on a potential serial killer, and a number of missing and murdered young women in the Charleston area. Former police officer Janie Roberts has been targeted by a potential serial killer-a killer that seems all to familiar to our story line heroine. From Charleston to Washington DC, Janie and her new beau Brent Taylor will find themselves the victim of a stalker who knows a little too much about their whereabouts, and their daily destinations. What ensues are the on-going threats against Janie Roberts, and the fall out when Janie becomes the captive of a once-friendly face.

HIDDEN FATE is another quick read; a suspenseful build up that follows a madman as he is forced to make good on a promise to ‘The Gentleman’ in charge. The premise is intriguing and engaging; the romance continues to develop towards a happily ever after. HIDDEN FATE ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.

TWISTED END
(Sons of Broad .7)
by Tara Thomas
Genre: adult, contemporary, romantic, suspense

Amazon.com / Amazon.ca / B&N / KOBO / Chapters Indigo /

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date February 20, 2018

Welcome to the sultry streets of Charleston, where simmering desire and dark danger rule…

First comes desire.
Then comes love.
But Janie and Brent need to stop the man out to ruin them,

Before they can live happily ever after

••••••••••••

REVIEW: TWISTED END is the third of three parts in the introductory story line of Tara Thomas’ SONS OF BROAD romantic, suspense series. This is police officer /investigator Janie Roberts, and wealthy playboy philanthropist Brent Taylor’s continuing story line. TWISTED END should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately following the events of part two HIDDEN FATE

NOTE: if you have not read the first two serialized instalments there may be some spoilers in my review.

Told from several third person perspectives including Janie and Brent TWISTED END is the conclusion to a three-part serialized story line focusing on the take down of a serial killer targeting young women in the Charleston area. With Janie Roberts missing, her best friend and fellow police officer Alyssa Adams, along with Janie’s boyfriend Brent Taylor, discover the true identity of the man stalking our story line heroine. With the killer one step ahead, Brent and Alyssa track down a man who is more than familiar to the story line characters. What ensues is the search and rescue of Janie Roberts, and the potential fall out as one man goes down while another remains on the run.

TWISTED END is a very quick read; a lively, action-packed, intriguing conclusion to the introductory story line that introduces the players in a game of cat and mouse. Although the identity of ‘The Gentleman’ in charge has yet to be revealed, my suspicions run towards a prominent figure in the Charleston area- a man who will continue to target and terrorize the local female inhabitants. The premise is energetic; the characters are animated; the romance is fated towards a happily ever after.The identity of the killer is easily deduced early on in the series; the identity of ‘The Gentleman’ in charge is an on-going puzzle but I have my suspicions. The series continues with Tilly Brock’s story DARKEST NIGHT (February 27, 2018).

I will add, that in all honesty, I am not a fan of serialized novels. It is difficult to comment for any serialized story line, when there is little to no difference between each progressive instalment on the author’s writing style, world building etc. A serialized novel is ONE book that has been divided into several instalments with each successive instalment furthering the story-thusly-writing a myriad of reviews for a partial story tends to focus on the events and not on any particular changes to writing skill, structure and sound.

  1. Very nice reviews, Sandy. Looks like a different and nice new series for the author. Sounds good, but I do not like serials. However, I just noticed its only 3 parts, and all within the month. Not too bad.

    • and the series continues with more books this month as well….but each new book is a full story as far as I know.I think they are pushing the first book as a serial….as a lead up to the series.
