Summary

First runner up for a Swirl award. 

Brooklyn's Song is a mystery that features a multi-ethnic cast of characters. This "absorbing story” begins with lead character, Brooklyn Pierce, witnessing the attempted assassination of her father, the first elected African-American Governor of New York, Sage Pierce. 

Leading the ensuing investigation, Korean-American detective Song Kai is immediately thrust into a perceived web of political conspiracy, forcing him to delve into Governor Pierce’s past and the apparent suicide of his wife 23 years prior. After developing feelings for Brooklyn and unearthing dark and tragic secrets, Song is plagued by the memory of his own wife’s death and the possibility of taking down the father Brooklyn so loves and admires. Twists turn into a heart-wrenching and shocking climax that reveals a deep and profound love.

Great book bad narrator..

The plot for this book was actually pretty good. However the narrator was drier than the Sahara. Her voice was really monotone and actually put me to sleep early on in the book. Somehow I managed to press on once I woke up from my nap. I would say definitely buy the book. However, I would not say listen to the book on Audible. Bad narration can really ruin the whole experience. 😕

One of the best romance -suspense books I've read in a long time. Very tight plot and unique writing. Going in I didn't know what to expect .I was pleasantly surprised.

Great characters


Brooklyn's Song by Sydney Arrison has a great story with strong characters. The story is your normal cop falls for victim storyline but why makes this one better than most is the characters. You really get to like them and want them to be happy.

As far as an audible goes, the narrator had it tough with many different voices. Her main character Voice was good but the
She lost me in some of the other characters. I can only imagine how tough that is to do many voices.

I would however definitely listen to another audio again by this writer.

Great book!

Any additional comments?

It was refreshing to see Brooklyn Pierce portrayed as an educated, moral woman. Song was so sexy and Mattice was the comic relief and overall it was a fun suspenseful and romantic book.

A book with a little of everything!

I love books that have good story lines. This is my first Sydney Arrison book, and it gave me a little of everything I love. Brooklyn is the daughter of the governor. After an attempt on the governor's life, Brooklyn meets detective Song Kai. And from there we have an incredible story. From the whodunnit of the murder attempt to the budding love between Brooklyn and Song, I was drawn in. There are a few twists and turns throughout the book, some angst and sadness from the past to overcome and abundant passion with the two main characters. I have to say that the character of Mattice, Song's partner really brought a lot of humor to the story as well. What a great friend who just tells it like it is! Arrison knows how to weave all the different parts together for a wonderful story.

Rose Lane did an beautiful job performing this book. She has a rich, warm voice giving the story the emotion necessary to draw you in. Loved the narration!

Wow!!! What a story!

What a book! This story is full of action, drama, suspense and love! Both the author and narrator were new to me & I was glad I found them. I will most definitely look for more of their books. I really enjoyed the unexpected twists and turns. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Awesome

I liked the flow and plot of this book. Everything was valid and the struggles were fair and similar to the true life. I liked that it was an appeal at first sight that extended into more senses and excitement. Both Song and Brooklyn had to let the past to move forward with each other. I highly recommend this interesting story.
