Wow! Daves story was good, burt Marks story blew me away. The first review so eloquently describes it that I have no further words. Cant wait to read the third in this series. Ms Straight is now on my list of favorite authors. This book is what CLEAN love stories are about. CB

I'll be quite honest with you. When I first started this book I wasn't really into it. There was a lot of backstory at the beginning. It wasn't until around 20% in before things started clicking together for me and getting good. Once again, my habit of not reading a blurb before I start a book has come into play. Yeah, I didn't put 2 and 2 together that this book had a lot to do with book 1. My's been awhile since I read HIS FROZEN HEART. But anyhow, once I got going past that point, I found it increasingly hard to put down. I know that I should have hated everything Mark did and the man he worked for but I couldn't. I really liked Johnny and found it hard to be displeased with him and the operations he ran. Even though Mark couldn't tell, I could see that Johnny really cared for him. I wonder if that makes me a bad person for liking the bad guy. Or maybe I am one of those that see the good in the bad. I don't know, but I really liked this story and the characters within it. FRACTURED KARMA was a fantastic story that once it got my attention I wanted to read it every chance I got. I would eagerly start it up whenever I found I had a bit of spare time. (Which wasn't often this past week). Straight once again writes a story with suspense and intrigue that pulled at my curiosity. Curiosity that kept my mind spinning with different scenarios on how this could end with Mark coming out unscathed. I just couldn't see it. Now I cannot wait to start SHROUD OF LIES! 5 Edge Of Your Seat Stars!

Reviewed by Francine Zane for Readers' Favorite Fractured Karma by Nancy Straight is about Mark Brewer, a foster home kid who grows up to follow a life of crime, but don’t let that mislead you. Sometimes even the bad guys have good intentions. While Mark works his way up in the crime organization, his past comes back to haunt him. Can he do what he set out to do without getting everyone he cares about killed? Nancy Straight hits a home run with Fractured Karma, Brewer Brothers Book 2. Set primarily in Kansas City, this story is filled with reasons to keep reading. From the engaging viewpoint of this young man who was given away by his mom, the reader quickly learns that nothing is black and white, and even criminals have a code of honor. Mark uses common sense to gain the trust of a crime boss, but at the same time, he has a hard time understanding that the omission of information is often as damaging as lying. It is only through a series of unfortunate events, combined with the love of a good woman, that he finally learns that his true self is the man worthy of love and trust. I highly recommend starting this book early in the day because you won’t want to put it down until you have read the last page. Straight is a creative genius when it comes to developing captivating characters. Mark’s journey through life will allow you to travel an emotional roller coaster of discovery, joy, and sometimes sadness. Her fictional crime organization feels more like a family than a group of dishonest thugs. Her plot will make you look at everyone around you just a little differently, and her romance will make you feel young again, no matter your age.

What can I say about this book? It's unlike the other books in Nancy's series and yet she doesn't stray from her ability to weave a story with such passion that you find yourself (literally) laughing out loud and crying throughout the narration. "Fractured Karma" is the tale of Mark Brewer. We met him and his brother Dave in book one, "His Frozen Heart." Unlike Nancy's other tales where a female lead tells the story, Nancy provides the story from Mark's perspective. This makes for a very good read and interesting tale. I certainly don't want to spoil anything, as many of my friend's curiosity was peeked in the first book while wondering what the story was behind the mysterious Mark. Needless to say, I do not think fans will be disappointed. As I read through the tale, I could not help but feel a real connection with Mark's character. His back story and struggles are compelling and emotional. I think many readers who have been guessing will be surprised when they learn his story. I'm a huge fan of Nancy Straight's work and have one or two favorites in her portfolio that I absolutely love; however, "Fractured Karma" has quickly swooped in and taken the lead as my all time favorite. Mystery, romance, adventure, and suspense make for one fun ride and Nancy has found the perfect formula to blend it all together.
