A PROMISE TO KEEP by Melony Teague, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

A Promise to Keep is a delightful blend of adventure, romance, suspense, and inspiration. Combined with delicious wit and humor and colorful imagery, this debut novel by Melony Teague is both emotional and realistic. I loved the shared history and connection between the two main characters, Savannah and Michael. They are engaging, layered, and lovable, and I enjoyed seeing the interaction and growth between them. I especially enjoyed two of the settings in the book—Niagara Falls and the Tetons. They are favorite places to me, and it was fun to visit them between the pages of this book.

I recommend this to readers who enjoy amusing second chance stories with great, realistic characters. I’m looking forward to more books from this author in the future.
*I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

BackCover Blurb:
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?
