Falling in love with the south of France was no surprise to Katherine. Choosing to walk away from her past and start over was completely unexpected. A new country, a new lover, and the promise of a bright future beginning in mid-life … who knew?
Now there were the exciting dreams of restoring the property on the Cap, of beginning a new career, of experiencing the traditions of Christmas in Provence, of falling even more deeply in love with the man who inspired these hopes.
It was all so perfect, until it wasn’t.
She had embraced new possibilities in life and given her heart only to discover something was being kept from her. Something terrible from her lover’s past. Something that could destroy everything.
What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger, had become her mantra. Would it be enough?
Read on for my thoughts on Promises To Keep. No true spoilers, promise.
Completely starting your life over is never easy at any age. Yet, Katherine has made the decision to move to France permanently. This means a new home, a new career, new friends and particularly a very special man to share her life with.
Philippe has brought Katherine back to life again. His love became her rock. While they renovated, and explored and simply loved life – there was danger lurking.
Promises To Keep is such a stunningly visual novel. Through Ms Sands’ words we are given such a landscape that comes to life off of the pages of this novel. Emotions as well make this novel well worth anyone’s time to experience this beautiful world. When Philippe’s past comes crashing into his and Kat’s present and future everything that Kat had trusted in and gambled her second chance on came into question. The suspense will follow them through this story and I’d imagine you’ll have plenty of guesses before the reveal. I don’t feel I can give too much away without spoiling the suspense.
Never give up hope and hold on to love no matter what – these are lessons that Kat will cling to. Will they be enough? You’ll have to read Promises To Keep to find out that answer. And the time spent in the south of France will be well worth the suspense.
I would highly recommend Promises To Keep and I look forward to returning for the next novel.
*I received an e-ARC of Promises To Keep from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. That does not change what I think of this novel.*
