Review: Promise Cove by Vickie McKeehan
a promise kept
can change your life.
Reeling from the violent death of her husband in war-torn Iraq, Jordan Phillips is at her wit’s end, left to fend for herself and her baby. Alone and desperate in backwater Pelican Pointe, she faces an uphill battle against a judgmental and hostile town as she tries to rebuild her life. But when a mysterious and handsome stranger with a tragic secret appears, her fragile new world threatens to come crashing down around her. A heartbreaking story of love and romance, Promise Cove will hold you breathless until the very last page.
Possible Spoiler Alert! I have read this author's work before and I have enjoyed it. With this book I just fell in love with the story and could not put this book down. We enter into the lives of Jordan and Nick. Jordan is a widow when her husband died. She is on her own and trying to make everything work, but it has been hard especially with a baby and a town not liking her for whatever reason.
Jordan and her late husband Scott had a dream to build a B&B which I think was awesome. You can just see how much Jordan wanted this dream to work. But she is going through difficulties then comes into the picture Nick! We learn why Nick is there through out the story and I think it is just amazing he is keeping his promise. But what happens between Jordan and Nick we see it coming but it is like it takes forever for the light bulb to click! My heart went out to Jordan in this story she was written as a strong woman that is always so positive it seems even when things don't look to be going her way. And so friendly even to those that are rude and hateful.
The way that Jordan portrays the scenery at the B&B is just so awesome, that I wouldn't mind going to stay there.
There was one part in the story that I got a bit teary eyed and that was toward the end where Jordan gets a surprise at her house.
Now the only reason I am giving this book a four star rating is the fact that when Nick "comes clean" as to why he is there Jordan already knew. She wanted him to open up to her which I think is awesome, but it was like they both kept running away from each other and it drove me batty. I understand why he didn't but it still bothered me a bit.
This is one book that I recommend to those that enjoy a good down to earth romance and a story line that will keep you engaged.
Vickie writes romantic suspense. She's the author of three distinctive, very different series of books, The Evil Trilogy, the Pelican Pointe series, and the Skye Cree novels. She's just finished her ninth book, The Bones Will Tell, the second story in the Skye Cree saga.
Vickie loves to write and enjoys getting two people together where she mixes in a good mystery or suspense guaranteed to challenge the budding relationship between the two main characters.
Her female leads are usually strong-willed, independent women and definitely not the kind who sit around whimpering, waiting for someone to rescue them. Not only that, when you read one of Vickie's books, you'll get a happy ending.
In her spare time, Vickie loves the outdoors, loves to play video games, and enjoys watching football with the hubby. If you've ever read any of her books, you know she's a die-hard Raider fan, which means she has the patience of Job.
She lives for chocolate, but then who doesn't? She'll kiss for a cup of coffee in the morning. She's convinced the best food on earth is French fries. And she could easily be a vegetarian if not for bacon.
