A Promise to Keep ~ Review

A Promise to Keep
By Melony Teague

Attending her high school reunion is the last thing Savannah Sanderson wanted to do, but she made a promise. And she wasn't about to break the promise she made to her late husband. But she'd rather stay among the stacks of books that help hide her away from most of the world.

Michael McCann left Point High after graduation and before his best friends got married. He couldn't stand to see the girl he loved getting married. But he never told Savannah how he felt and then Nick won her heart. And he's never found anyone who could measure up to Savannah.

Could their 20 year HS reunion be a second chance or will the prison that Savannah has created for herself keep her from living life? A Promise to Keep is a book that will keep the reader hoping that Savannah will become the person she used to be. One who realizes that risks are a part of life. And that without small risks one cannot truly live. But even more one hopes that she can recapture the faith that she once held to so tightly, a faith that she has let slip away to pain and anger.

Those who like heart-warming reads and Love Inspired books will enjoy this offering from Melony Teague. The characters are likable and one can see both Savannah and Michael's viewpoints as they embrace the unexpected and unplanned detour that life has just handed them. What would you risk for a second chance at love? This is the question that both must themselves and sometimes the answer is one that means a major change in life, thought, and heart.

I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
Research librarian Savannah Sanderson wants nothing more than to escape into her happily-ever-after novels with their larger-than-life fictional heroes. But a promise to her late husband has her attending her dreaded twenty-year high school reunion, drinking ghastly punch, and taking desperate measures just to keep her vow, even if she has to hide behind the d├ęcor to do it.
Once a reckless troublemaker, Michael McCann fled town after graduation. Now a professional technical rescuer, he’s back for the reunion, but on his trip down memory lane, he soon comes face to face with unresolved issues, namely Savannah.
Before the night is over, a pact between these two old friends will lead them on an adventure into uncharted emotional territory where Michael must confront his past regrets and find the courage to reveal the truth. But can Savannah fly from her sheltered nest and risk her heart on a real-life hero?
