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.
“Promise me one thing. Promise me you’ll live.”
Emotional. Beautiful. Love.
This book. I’ve not felt as much, while reading, for ages. Reading The Promise was more than reading a story. More than feeling the words on a page. It was so much more than 26 little letters can ever hope to be. It is also something that has to be experienced for yourself. All of the unadulterated moments of joy. The shredding pain of lies unraveled. The lightness of hope, thought to be long lost. Melody Grace sent me on a rollercoaster with this book. One I had missed so desperately and had begun to think I had lost the location of. I thank her for helping me find my way back to the depth of emotion that she let me experience.
The Promise was so well written. The prose so artful, so lyrical at times. It was fitting for the characters, whose artistry wound through the pages, filling up their moments and my mind. It was clear from the first perfectly worded sentence that Melody Grace was more than your average author. The words she wrote were so full of life, of passion, it was beyond a privilege to read this book. The Promise, the words she bled onto these pages, is a precious gift she has given her readers. One that should be cherished and held delicately in the safest corner of your hearts.
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?
