ABOUT THE BOOK:
Book 2 in the Providence Falls Trilogy. Outlander meets The Lake House (movie) in this epic love story that crosses continents and centuries. Master storyteller Jude Deveraux joins forces with up and coming author Tara Sheets to create a series that will appeal to women’s fiction and romance readers alike. A rogue thief in 1840s Ireland is sent by angels to a contemporary small town in America to make amends for his crimes in the past. Forbidden to tell anyone why he is there he must convince the woman he loves to marry another man or be damned for eternity.
In one century she loved him madly, and in another she wants nothing to do with him
In this second book of a trilogy, the story of Liam O’Connor and Cora McLeod continues. While they were lovers in the past, things are very different in the present. Liam and Cora are both police officers and roomates in Providence Falls, North Carolina. Liam is trying to do as the angels have commanded–make sure Cora falls in love with another man—but Cora is not the impressionable innocent girl Liam remembers. She’s strong and smart and not easily manipulated. Liam is forced to face the truth about himself as he comes to realize that he truly isn’t the right man for Cora. But, as Liam is coming to that conclusion, Cora is starting to see him in a new light.
Liam wants Cora for himself, but with his soul hanging in the balance, he must choose between a stolen moment in time or an eternity of damnation.
An Impossible Promise is romantic, fun and pure escape.
AN IMPOSSIBLE PROMISE is a slow burn contemporary story, but also A dual timeline going back to 1844, that I was pulled in to from the very first page. To be honest, I fell in love with the cover the minute I saw it. I knew I would read it anyway, because I love Jude Deveraux, but the cover really pulled me in. I would love to be able to walk through that field. I loved everything about this beautiful story and I’m excited to recommend it to my reading friends. These authors always have a way of grabbing their readers and they never let us go.
AN IMPOSSIBLE PROMISE really takes a turn that will have you unable to put this beautiful story down. The story picks up a little while after the first left off. Liam comes from 1844 to the present and some of the new things he experiences are very funny. I will never eat another Oreo without thinking of Liam! In the present Liam and Cora are police officers and are focused on solving a case involving a gang, murder, and stolen money. Liam is trying to get Cora together with Finn but she’s more interested in Magnus! She has to marry Finn so that her life doesn’t end in tragedy.
AN IMPOSSIBLE PROMISE is filled with twists and turns and had me staying up way too late one night to finish! I had to know where Jude Deveraux and Tara Sheets were taking us and what would happen to Liam and Cora. There is so much heart in their writing that I’m always left with a huge smile on my face and my heart very happy. I could totally see AN IMPOSSIBLE PROMISE becoming a big screen movie and I would love to see it. All of the characters are very interesting and believable, so much so that I felt as if I’ve known them for a long time. Another cliff hanger!!!! These women are trying to kill me!
