Below are recent reviews for Testament:

on February 19, 2018

Brew up a pitcher of sweet tea and settle into your most comfortable chair. You won’t want to put this book down as T. M. “Mike” Brown takes us back to Shiloh for more southern hospitality with Liddy and Theo Phillips.

I was immediately pulled into the town’s daily routine, via its established churches, the hardware, the smokehouse diner, to be reacquainted with residents introduced last year in Sanctuary. The town’s enthusiasm has grown exponentially with the rebuilding of its youth center and the new family park soon to be dedicated. High school football brings most of the town out and darker days of the past seem to be on the run. But with the advent of an odd floorboard in the Phillips house and what’s found underneath, you perceive there’s more to this story than grits and barbeque.

A previous resident returns to one of Shiloh’s most prominent families and apprehension builds as the usually unflappable Theo tells Liddy “…hope my gut’s wrong, but I sense she’s up to something.” The storm rises and there are more wrinkles to Shiloh’s story than linen pants on a hot southern day as Theo is thrust into the breach as peacekeeper.

This second rendering for T.M. Brown did not disappoint and kept me reading until I finished in one sitting.

I received an advance copy in return for an objective review. Thanks, Coach Brown. – Linda J Pifer

Testament is another outstanding novel by author T. M. Brown

Testament is another outstanding novel by author T. M. Brown. It’s a page-turning mystery, with plenty of suspense. I have read this author’s previous novel Sanctuary and enjoyed it very much. But I like Testament even more. It has a more in-depth level of mystery and intrigue. Good plot twists that will keep you guessing until the end. The book revolves around people living in Shiloh, a small town in south Georgia. We met these characters in the previous book, although some new characters are also involved. If you enjoy reading mysteries, you will love Testament. A great read.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you for the review copy. A retired publisher and his wife move from the busy life in Atlanta to a small quiet town for a new beginning. When Theo ends up taking a part-time job writing at a local paper he begins to unravel a story that has been laid to rest for years. Some of the locals are happy to have the truth revealed and others work against Theo, and his attempt at what could be more than just a magnificent story. I liked the book, the plot was well thought out. The characters were well developed and interacted well with one another. There were also a few aspects of this book that I really related to well. At times I felt like the author was describing my own very small town. I liked the familiarity. Also, as a writer myself I could relate to Theo from the beginning. My favourite character other than Theo, was Megan, I liked her story because of who she is as a character, what she goes through, and how she handles things. I did however find the book to be a bit too long due to some repetitive scenes, and I found it to be a bit preachy at times. But overall, I liked the book, and give it 3/5 stars.
