Review: Mississippi Nights by D.M. Webb

Mississippi Nights is a family drama dealing with two brothers, one a decorated police officer and the younger one a firefighter.  Getting right into the book we are witnesses to a tragic accident that has set the two brothers at odds with each other.  Sgt. Jeremy  Boyette was unable to save his brother David’s fiancĂ©e, Rebecca, from a car explosion, though he certainly tried and has the scars to prove it.  David unjustly accuses Jeremy and takes off for the big city for three years.  David finally decides, like a prodigal, it would be better for him to return back home so he could at least be near his parents and older sister’s family and Jeremy’s family.  However, David returns home with hidden demons and a secret that is eating him alive.  This book deals with addiction and how some secrets can eat your soul, and what it truly means to be your brother’s keeper.  Can David forgive Jeremy and embrace the second chance he has been given with the very lovely Maggie, the preacher's daughter?  I received a copy for an honest review from The Book Club Network, Inc. and the opinions are my own.
