The Third Son
Reviewed by Sharon Broom
T.L. Vance's fast-paced novel of love, greed, violence, betrayal and deceit is loaded with tension from the beginning to the end. The plot is intriguing, and the characters are real and complex, faced with dilemmas and choices.
British-born and wealthy, Kells Berkley returns from a trip frustrated that his roommate Bryant has moved a young and beautiful American woman, Cydney Nash, into their home. To further complicate matters, Bryant is engaged to marry Cydney, who he'd only known for three weeks. Kells doesn't understand their relationship or engagement but he understands Bryant. It's not as if Bryant hasn't done something like this before.
Cydney isn't comfortable with her engagement to Bryant. But she does want to apprentice with a prestigious architectural firm. With a chance at her dream job she has agreed to move into Bryant and Kells' home.
Bryant must leave for Rome on business and so Kells and Cydney are together in the men's home. This becomes a difficult situation for Kells as he's attracted to and is falling in love with Cydney.
As love blossoms, Kells tries to resist it and Cydney. It would be a betrayal of his friendship with Bryant to become involved with his friend's fiancee. But is Bryant a true friend? Will events bring Kells and Cydney together or will their relationship be shattered forever?
