This is the second book in this series I read. The first is When Camels Fly. You can read my review of it here.
Maggie Madison has done it again. She has been abducted! All because of a paper she was about to deliver on a possible water source under the Middle East that was referenced in the Bible and by the Reformationist Luther. Grace-who is the Mom who talks to herself a lot (but who could blame her) immediately sends a call to arms to her family. Jeff, the brother who just happens to be on his honeymoon and her husband who swears he is going to get Maggie and keep her home on the ranch! Maggie manages to extricate herself and meet up with her family but just has to find the last piece of the puzzle that will prove her theory. Mom is still mumbling to herself. Grace's old professor gets in on the act then he and his octogenarian twin disappear! More mumbling from Grace. As they travel from Paris to Rome and other countries intrigue follows (with more mumbling from Grace). Meanwhile two of their companions are vying for Maggie--should Grace get involved? When Mark (Dad) literally rides to the rescue and everyone thinks the real troublemaker is dead-----------You and I both will have to wait for the third in this series!

A friend's deception. A family's dilemma.
While cataloguing looted antiquities in Brussels, archaeologist Grace Madison discovers that her daughter has vanished in France, and her son's bride has been attacked in Switzerland. After the Madisons unearth a relic whose taproot pierces the Ancient Near East, they realize that before they can save themselves, they must rescue an old friend. If he'll let them.
They sacrifice hearts and lives in a race against eternity on a four-thousand-year-old trail crossing three continents.
Because choosing what's right is all that's left.
Praise for When Camels Fly (Parched Series Book I):"Page-turning international suspense--this writer is on her way up."-DiAnn Mills, Christie Award winning author
"An exciting novel of suspense, intrigue, and mystery. Very nicely done."-Paul Johnson, Readers' Favorites
"It's obvious from the writing that the author has spent time here."-Ellis Shuman, Times of Israel
"The book was fantastic, and nearly impossible to set down. Highly recommended."-Kathryn Bennett, Readers' Favorites
"A unique, totally out in left field, never been told story. I love that."-Every Free Chance Blog
Advance Praise for My Brothers Keepers:"The Brothers' Keepers, book 2 in the Parched series, delivers masterful international suspense driven by contemporary family dynamics. Light the late-night oil because you won't want to put this book down."-DiAnn Mills, Christy Award Winner
"I thought Horton peaked with her first novel, When Camels Fly. I'll admit, I was wrong. The Brothers' Keepers is magnificent! The main characters from her first novel are beautifully developed in this sequel.
This is a more accessible novel than When Camels Fly mainly because of the location -- Europe. She incorporates the history of the places her characters visit, and she weaves an incredibly feasible story around these events. The story is as complex as When Camels Fly, a good thing that requires close reading, but it is well worth the effort.
I highly recommend reading When Camels Fly before this one and continuing journeying with the Madison family!-Leigh Bennett, Reader
"I am once again became enthralled by the exploits of an intelligent, older woman and her family whom I first got to meet in When Camels Fly. It's so rare to find a heroine that the more mature amongst us can relate to on some level. I look forward to learning more about Grace, Mark, Maggie, Jeff and Becca as they become embroiled in yet another adventure after Maggie goes missing and an attempt is apparently made on Becca's life whilst she and Jeff are honeymooning in Switzerland."-Anne Rogers, Reader
