book blurb

Claire Fortune arrives in Boston with an old notebook and her best friend’s dying wish – to finish the scribbled bucket list that Hope didn’t have time to complete. Moment by moment, Claire builds a life she never dreamed of – until Theo walks into the coffee-shop one crisp September afternoon, and her careful plans scatter on the winds.

Sometimes a chance meeting can change a life forever.

Sometimes fate knows exactly what we need.

Perfect for fans of ‘Me Before You’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, ‘The Promise’ brings together two people searching for a love that can overcome tragedy. A heartbreakingly romantic novel that challenges us to live – and love – every day as if it were our last.


about the author

Melody Grace

Melody GraceHi! I’m Melody Grace, author of the bestselling Beachwood Bay series. Some things about me:

1 I’m a small-town girl turned California beach lover.

2 I spent my childhood with my nose in a book before deciding to try and write one myself. I love all kinds of genres – from thrillers to YA and mystery – but romance has always been a passion of mine.

3 I love pistachio ice-cream, vanilla lattes, bad action movies, and Grey’s Anatomy (yes, I’m still watching… I can’t quit!).

4 I have an uncanny sense of direction. I once drove halfway across Canada without GPS or a map!

5 I have two adorable rascal cats named Bucky and Steve, I rescued them as kittens, and yes, I spoil them rotten.

6 I’m allergic to chocolate 🙁

7 I love sexy, heart-felt reads with strong heroines and swoon-worthy men. Why don’t you check out a couple of my books and meet your new book boyfriends?

my review

5 Stars

I think I’m still crying. This book – The Promise – absolutely gutted me.

Every time I read a book like The Promise I think – I’m never doing this to myself again. I can’t handle having my heart broken. I need the happily ever afters. I need to feel blessed out and euphoric.

Yet I cannot help myself when a favorite author goes and publishes a book with a blurb I just can’t ignore. I have to read it.  And that’s how I find myself wading through a highly emotional journey like Claire and Theo’s.  And that’s how I end up ugly crying in the middle of the night.  Again.

But it was so freaking worth it – you have to experience the pain to get the pleasure of Claire and Theo.  Their love story was incredible.  There are some many layers to this plot and each one pulls you further into the lives of the main characters.  It’s an amazing book.

Don’t miss out on The Promise, it is a must read romance.
