I loved Enduring Promises of the Heart by Valerie Loveless. So I was so excited when I saw that she had a sequel coming out! I loved the clever way this author wrote this one as well.
Mary and Liz are back in this book. They’re both married now. And Liz is still writing her serial for the newspaper. But, things get more and more complicate in the lives of these two. And Liz’s sister Harriet also gets thrown into the mix. I had to laugh at the way these three try to snoop on Liz’s and Mary’s husbands. This ends up causing problems for all five of them.
The author allows the reader to see things from so many perspectives. I loved that, it really helps the reader to know what’s happening and why.
And, of course, the reader gets to read Liz’s serial as well. I loved these parts. They are just fun, and filled with adventure, danger and intrigue. I loved the way these parts added to the rest of the book.
I loved this one! If you haven’t read Enduring Promises of the Heart, you’re going to want to read that one first.
I was sent a copy of Unbroken Promises of the Heart as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
