Grace Madison is in Brussels when she learns that her daughter is missing in France and her daughter-in-law is attacked while in Switzerland. Once Maggie and Becca are found, a partial scroll is discovered and the undercover agent Madison family begins a journey following the trail to find the other half of the ancient relic. The hunt leads to several different locations in Venice, Rome, Germany, the Mediterranean, London, and Israel as they dodge bullets and would-be assassins searching for the same item.

The Brothers’ Keepers is the second installment in the Parched series that follows Grace Madison on archaeological adventures mixed with action that includes her immediate family members who are also CIA agents. The second book is full of locations associated with the discovered relic that pertain to King Solomon and a possible hidden water reservoir that could serve under-served eastern and third world countries. The theme is plausible and written with humor as the group travels from city to city with a budding romance in the making. The book is entertaining and an enjoyable read for adventure, action, light romance, and archaeological buff readers who will not be disappointed. The third installment in the series of novels due to be released in the fall of 2015 will probably continue the story where it ends in the second book.

I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity Group in exchange for an honest opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines.

A friend's deception. A family's dilemma.

While cataloging looted antiquities in Brussels, archaeologist Grace Madison learns that her daughter has disappeared in France, and daughter-in-law has been attacked in Switzerland. But before the Madisons can save themselves, they must rescue an old friend---if he'll let them. Navigating a deadly, four-thousand-year-old artifact trail that crosses three continents, they jeopardize hearts and lives against a foe as old as time---as time runs out.

Because choosing what's right is all that's left.

Edythe, I very much appreciate your sharing The Brothers' Keepers with your followers and look forward to reading what they think of the work either on Amazon or Goodreads. Every review makes me a better writer, and I'm hard at work now on the third installment in the Parched series.

Best to you,
