Story Rating: *****
Cover Rating: B
From the very beginning, Strength of a Promise drew me in. The beginning hints at a lot of big secrets that are revealed with perfect timing – right when the reader actually needs to know the truth. It’s suspenseful, romantic, and was a nice, quick read that I finished in a single day.
Thad is a total hunk who’s “promises” make him all the more a swoon-worthy guy. He’s also not perfect, which makes it all the better for me. I have big issues with perfect heroes. Flaws are wonderful!
Diana is a sweetheart with a sassy attitude that I adore. She’s a doting mother who definitely didn’t want anything to do with Thad – but letting him in proves to be a wonderful thing!
The cover is good, and it does draw the eye. The cover made me imagine the story would be more of a western romance than it really was, however, so it doesn’t entirely accurately portray the story.
