Brothers' Keepers by N, L B. Horton -my review and guest post.

Adobe Photoshop PDF My review of  The brother's Keepers. I was given a copy of the book for my honest review. After reading, I gave it five stars for a well written book about  Characters first introduced in the author's "When Camels Fly" of the Parched Series. The family is former CIA, M-16 and has connections to the Mossad of Israel. Their cross continent journey is filled with danger and intrigue that will hold your interest from beginning to end.
 Here is an excerpt from the book. 
    Matthew didn’t answer immediately, and I assumed he was determining what to share.      “He thinks it’s a syndicate. Much larger than what we uncovered last year. Very well funded. Global. With a lot of fingers in the environment.” 
   We waited for more. “That’s really all I know.”
   “And what about Laura McAlex?” Becca asked. “She’s the wild card for me ,” Mark said. “I had the rest of this figured out, but she blew a substantial hole in my theories.” He cringed, and I knew he remembered shooting her. “She was about to hurt Maggie and Becca, so I had no choice but to kill her.”
   I squeezed his hand. “You saved our girls.” He nodded at his boots. “ I didn’t do much of the violent stuff for the CIA.”

Advance Praise for My Brothers Keepers:

"The Brothers' Keepers, book 2 in the Parched series, delivers masterful international suspense driven by contemporary family dynamics. Light the late-night oil because you won't want to put this book down."-DiAnn Mills, Christy Award Winner "I thought Horton peaked with her first novel, When Camels Fly. I'll admit, I was wrong. The Brothers' Keepers is magnificent! The main characters from her first novel are beautifully developed in this sequel. This is a more accessible novel than When Camels Fly mainly because of the location -- Europe. She incorporates the history of the places her characters visit, and she weaves an incredibly feasible story around these events. The story is as complex as When Camels Fly, a good thing that requires close reading, but it is well worth the effort. I highly recommend reading When Camels Fly before this one and continuing journeying with the Madison family!-Leigh Bennett, Reader "I am once again became enthralled by the exploits of an intelligent, older woman and her family whom I first got to meet in When Camels Fly. It's so rare to find a heroine that the more mature amongst us can relate to on some level. I look forward to learning more about Grace, Mark, Maggie, Jeff and Becca as they become embroiled in yet another adventure after Maggie goes missing and an attempt is apparently made on Becca's life whilst she and Jeff are honeymooning in Switzerland."-Anne Rogers, Reader
