About this ebook

“I adored it… Made my eyes well up and my heart melt. Great ingredients mixed into a wonderful story… Sit back and enjoy this fabulous book. You will not regret it, believe me.” Goodreads Reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Indigo Bay may be Stella’s perfect home, but it has always been tinged with sadness. The waters of the lake, deepest blue and visible from every window, are a constant reminder of her biggest mistake—and the reason she has always promised never to let anyone into her heart. But everything changes when dark, handsome Paolo arrives in town.

As a whirlwind romance develops quickly into something deeper and stronger, Stella starts to wonder if maybe—just maybe—she might deserve some happiness after all. If Paolo has found something to love in her, can she learn to love—and forgive—herself?

But then Paolo asks her the biggest question of her life, and what should be a moment of joy turns into one of panic. She can’t marry Paolo while keeping her biggest secret from him. But if she tells him the truth, she is sure she’ll lose him forever.

Maybe true love is worth risking everything for. Is it time for Stella to leave her past behind—and make new promises?

A heart-breaking and hopeful story about learning to trust in yourself and the people you love, Promises at Indigo Bay will show you that it’s never too late to try for your happy ending. Perfect for fans of Robyn Carr, Carolyn Brown and Debbie Macomber.

This is my first book by this author, but it definitely won’t be my last. This is a beautiful story about love and family. Stella and Paolo, her boyfriend, live together and are very much in love. She thinks things are perfect the way they are. Then Paolo gets bad news. His visa extension has been denied and he has to return to Italy. Will Stella end up marrying Paolo? Grab you copy and get ready to enjoy some laughs, especially when Paolo’s mother and Stella interact. We also learn why Stella is the way she is, as we get further into the book. I received an advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley and Bookouture and this my voluntary and honest review.
