Description:

In #1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward’s thrilling finale of the Bourbon Kings series, the Bradford family dynasty teeters on the edge of collapse after the murder of their patriarch—and a shocking arrest.

At first, the death of William Baldwine, the head of the Bradford family, was ruled a suicide. But then his eldest son and sworn enemy, Edward, came forward and confessed to what was, in fact, a murder. Now in police custody, Edward mourns not the disintegration of his family or his loss of freedom . . . but the woman he left behind. His love, Sutton Smythe, is the only person he has ever truly cared about, but as she is the CEO of the Bradford Bourbon Company’s biggest competitor, any relationship between them is impossible. And then there’s the reality of the jail time that Edward is facing.

Lane Baldwine was supposed to remain in his role of playboy, forever in his big brother Edward’s shadow. Instead he has become the new head of the family and the company. Convinced that Edward is covering for someone else, Lane and his true love, Lizzie King, go on the trail of a killer—only to discover a secret that is as devastating as it is game-changing.

As Lane rushes to discover the truth, and Sutton finds herself irresistibly drawn to Edward in spite of his circumstances, the lives of everyone at Easterly will never be the same again. For some, this is good; for others, it could be a tragedy beyond imagining. Only one thing’s for certain: Love survives all things. Even murder.

My Thoughts:

This is the last book in the Bourbon Kings trilogy and everything you knew or thought you knew got thrown out the window.  Truths become revealed that people may not want revealed in protecting others.  Gin makes some truthful decisions that she really needed to make.  Friends banded together to help the Baldwine's and they uncover who the killer really was which is shocking to say the least!

I loved this series it was great to visit Kentucky and see what people are up to.  It was such fun to travel with Max, Lane, Gin, and Edward to see where they land and what is up next for them.  I know whenever I need some major drama and suspense I can go back and read this trilogy and enjoy the bourbon as it flows!
