Book Review – Promises Unbroken

Promises Unbroken

How much will she risk to save her sister?

Mae Ashton has every reason to stay in Georgia and marry the man she loves, save one—the disappearance of her sister. Although all evidence points to Hazel’s death, Mae’s discovery of a single picture changes everything. If Hazel is alive, Mae will find her. And she’s left everything to do so.

Davis Everleigh isn’t about to let Mae, his fiancée, go just because of a note that hardly explains her departure to New York City. Instead, he follows her to the city and gains employment with the man Mae believes is somehow connected to Hazel.

As Davis and Mae become further entrenched in their effort to locate Hazel, they find themselves facing a corrupt businessman and his ruthless henchman, Alberto Moretti. In a world of lies, will the truth prevail—both about Hazel and in their own lives?

My Thoughts

Wow what a ride! This book was fast paced and full of action!

I really enjoyed Kristina’s writing style, and how she wove faith throughout the whole story. It was rich with truth.

When Davis was first mentioned I wasn’t so sure about him, but boy did he prove me wrong! He was a great character – real, raw and always trying to do the right thing, even though he failed sometimes. Him and Mae were perfect together. When one struggled, the other was always there to give encouragement and support.

Scranton was amazing. A tough guy with a big fist and an even bigger heart. His whole family is just sweet and incredible. Mae really should be happy to get to live with them. XD

And Moretti – I adore those bad guy characters who turn their lives around. And I just knew this guy would be one of those – is that a spoiler? I love how we got a peak into his life/childhood and his internal struggle.

Vin and Lillian on the other hand. *gag* I wanted to believe as Mae did, but no Lillian knew what she was doing, and she wanted it. I did admire her commitment, even if it was misplaced. Vin was a well written and believable villain who seems to have everyone under his control.

I also appreciated that Mae and Davis were already engaged, and the romance was very minimal anyway. To me, it only stands out as about 1% of the plot.

Even though I didn’t agree with all the shooting and violence committed by the good guys, that’s my personal opinion and the author did handle it well.

Content: Alot of action, heavy violence, some shooting and beating up. Drinking, parties, and cursing mentioned, done by the bad guys and cast in negative light.

I love the message of this story. Though we may face pain and heartache here on earth, God’s promises remain true and steadfast. Though family and friends may break their promises, He never does! He is faithful and true! 💖
