Broken Promise – Tara Thomas

Broken Promise – Tara Thomas


I was fortunate to receive this novel as an Advance Reader Copy, in exchange for an objective review.

Kipling Benedict is the eldest of the three Benedict brothers, whom are the heirs apparent to the large shipping company bequeathed to them by their father. Set in beautiful Charleston, SC, Kipling has seen both of his brothers marry, but after having his heart broken at a young age, he has vowed to remain single, despite his hidden interest in Charleston PD’s Officer Alyssa Adams.

Alyssa Adams has an agenda of her own. After losing a sister to murder when she was 15 years old, she has made it her life’s work to avenge her sister and to protect society, a story she shares with Kipling over an impromptu cup of coffee one afternoon. As they talk, they discover a connection between them – a company named ‘Finition Noire’.

Soon, a young woman who proclaims to be the Benedict’s sister – Jade – goes missing, and Kipling receives a call from an individual who claims to have her. He joins forces with Alyssa in attempts to find her.

As the search for Jade intensifies, we learn of ‘The Gentleman’, and a clue left behind by Alyssa’s sister all those years ago, that ties into the present as Kipling & Alyssa give in to their chemistry and search for answers and for Jade. Just who is ‘The Gentleman’ and why does he have it in for the Benedict family?

I absolutely LOVED this book! Non-stop action and suspense, and some great reveals into the motivations and backstories of individual characters and how they became to be. It kept me guessing – and guessing wrong! Great read!! I will most definitely be watching for more from Tara Thomas!!

Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!! I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!! I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!! Thanks for stopping by! :)
