"#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward delivers the second novel in her Bourbon Kings series--a sweeping saga of a Southern dynasty struggling to maintain a facade of privilege and prosperity while secrets and indiscretions threaten its very foundation...In Charlemont, Kentucky, the Bradford family is the crème la crème of high society--just like their exclusive brand of bourbon. And their complicated lives and vast estate are run by a discreet staff who inevitably become embroiled in their affairs. This is especially true now, when the apparent suicide of the family patriarch is starting to look more and more like murder...No one is above suspicion--especially the eldest Bradford son, Edward.

Wie sich schon im Vorgängerband „Bourbon Kings“ abzeichnete, kommen nach dem Tod des Vaters eine Menge Probleme auf Lane zu. Sein Bruder Edward gerät unter Verdacht, den Vater ermordet zu haben. Das Unternehmen ist hoch verschuldet und steht kurz vor dem Ruin. Nur noch die größte Konkurrentin Sutton Smythe, die zudem Edwards große Liebe ist, könnte helfen.
Auch bei diesem Band ist der Schreibstil wieder sehr angenehm flüssig zu lesen.
Edward als ältester Sohn sollte eigentlich das Unternehmen in dieser schwierigen Phase leiten, aber seit seiner Entführung ist er dazu nicht mehr in der Lage. Zudem steht er unter Mordverdacht. Aber einer muss sich kümmern und diese Aufgabe übernimmt Lane. Es ist schön zu beobachten, wie er sich vom leichtlebigen Unternehmersohn zum einem verantwortungsvollen und geschickten Unternehmer entwickelt. Neben den bekannten Personen gibt es einige neue, die Schwung in die Handlung bringen. So taucht Amelia, Gins Tochter, auf. Gin war einen Deal eingegangen und sie steht zu ihrem Wort. Ich bin gespannt, ob sie am Ende doch mit ihrer großen Liebe zusammenkommt. Die Liebesgeschichte zwischen Lane und Lizzie tritt in den Hintergrund. In dieser Familie passiert so viel, dass es nicht langweilig wird. Auch über Edward und Sutton erfährt man in diesem Band einiges mehr.
Ich bin gespannt, was hinter den Schwierigkeiten des Unternehmen steckt und wer das Familienoberhaupt William Baldwine getötet hat, denn das wird immer noch nicht aufgeklärt. So ist die Neugier auf den Folgeband „Bourbon Lies“ geweckt.
Wieder gibt es Intrigen und Skandale und die Familie Bradford ist immer für Überraschungen gut.
Ein spannende Familiengeschichte mit interessanten Charakteren, die sehr gut unterhält. ( )

This JR Ward series does not disappoint. I usually learn a bit about bourbon making while getting involved in the family's drama. I'm not sure how I would react in these situations as someone who didn't grow up with money or that kind of family history in one house. ( )

Continuing the not so pretty story of the Bradford family saga. It's a messed up family, that I dound very little to like for the most of the story. It's the secondary characters that are likeable and seem to be the families only saving grace. There's embezzlement, murder, abuse just to name a few and the ending leaves more open endings and very little closer.

And so things start to crumble. Secrets are bound to destroy this family and their fortune. The second book in this series starts out right where the first book left off...

Drama. Secrets. Drama. It seems never-ending with this cast of characters. From all of the drama and secrets, we see some characters grow and evolve. Above their upbringing, the characters are becoming more and more grounded. They will do anything to keep their family's legacy going. But with all of the secrets, it might seem impossible.

Everything from the first book literally hits the fan. Everything is a-muck in this book. I couldn't put it down. With my heart racing and mind reeling, I had no idea where Ward was going to take me in this book! ( )

#2 The Bourbon Kings
Audio narrated by Alexander Cendese

Disappointing continuation of the saga surrounding the wealthy Baldwine family. Other than a couple tearjerker moments, this was a drawn out bit of not much. The various family members are starting to show some pluck and even some of their humanity as they face the imminent demise of their reputation and wealth; some of the most stubborn members of the family finally being honest about their feelings, even if their efforts come too late.

As always, Ward does a great job of creating interesting characters; however, her downfall is her penchant for constantly referring to high-end brands and labels, whether it is cars, liquor, jewelry, artwork, or clothing. I have a hard time believing that people honestly look at their watch and immediately think of it as their "Piaget Polo 7131 c 701".

In saying all this, however, I do want to continue on to the next book because of a nebulous ending and because I do still like these characters (dang it) and want to see how they pull out of the mess their father left for them before his death. ( )
