We are the Brennans Review

We are the Brennans Review

Title: We are the Brennans
Author: Tracey Lange
Style: Contemporary
Rating: 4/5

When Sunday is involved in a bad car accident near her home in Los Angeles her brother convinces her to come home to the east coast to be with her family and ex-fiancé she deserted 5 years ago with no explanation. Sunday wants to rebuild her life even though tensions are high. When a dangerous man from the past threatens to derail the family business, Sunday decides to unleash the secrets and reason for her departure. The Brennans will be forced to revisit the past to find a way forward.

I adore when stories are told from multiple perspectives and Tracey Lange is flawless as she shifts perspectives from one character to another. The story is pretty solid too as it contains all the components of a dysfunctional family:  secrets, betrayals, and regrets. Despite all that you can tell this family loves and cares for one another and that they will always have each other's backs.  The characters were likable and well developed. At times the story felt a bit predictable but overall I enjoyed it.  The narration done by Barrie Kreinik made the story come alive for me. If you enjoy stories that contain family drama and secrets then this story is for you.

Thank you NetGalley and Macmillian Audio for an advanced reader's copy in audio format in exchange for my honest review. We are the Brennans releases August 3rd.
