The Promise by Melody Grace is NOW AVAILABLE!!
By Melody Grace
Release Date: October 15, 2016
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.
Well, dang. I love Melody Grace. I know, when I start one of her books, that it will be full of love, trial, lots of heat, and, ultimately, the proverbial happily ever after. That last part is a given, and it’s one of the reasons that I grab and devour everything she writes.
And, now, THE PROMISE. Trademark Melody, from the relatable characters to the razor-sharp dialogue, the humor, the gang of friends that rounds out the story. But, oh, goodness, the feels in this one. Truly, I’m still picking up the pieces of my heart, folks, because Melody got me good with this book. I can’t remember the last time I cried this much while reading a love story, and I’m sure that I will be suffering with a book hangover for quite some time.
I don’t want to give away any of the plot, because you truly need to experience this book as it unfolds. Let me just say that THE PROMISE is far different from any book that Melody has written to date, and, while it devastated me, it was a beautiful beautiful part of her that I am happy to have experienced. Love, happiness, despair, loss, they’re all here. But what stands out the most, and what will remain, is that love surprises us when we’re least expecting it, and that life is a gift not to be squandered, but to be grabbed and lived with abandon, gusto, and joy. 5+ stars for this, one of my favorites of 2016. Grab your copy, and your box of tissues, and dive in to THE PROMISE.

Hi! 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?
