“Promise me one thing. Promise me you’ll live.”

Claire Fortune arrives in Boston with an old notebook and her best friend’s dying wish – to finish the scribbled bucket list that Hope didn’t have time to complete. Moment by moment, Claire builds a life she never dreamed of – until Theo walks into the coffee-shop one crisp September afternoon, and her careful plans scatter on the winds.

Sometimes a chance meeting can change a life forever.
Sometimes fate knows exactly what we need.

Perfect for fans of ‘Me Before You’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, ‘The Promise’ brings together two people searching for a love that can overcome tragedy. A heartbreakingly romantic novel that challenges us to live – and love - every day as if it were our last.

Rating: ☆☆☆☆

A promise to live...

Claire moves to the city to carry on with her best friend's bucket list.  When Theo walks into her coffee shop and her life, he is a distraction that she doesn't need but he gets under her skin.

Theo is one of those characters that takes a while to warm up to as the way he treats Claire at times is not great.  Flitting in and out of her life without much courtesy towards Claire.

Claire is on her journey of discovering her freedom and trying new things, living life to the fullest.  It is tinged with sadness and can be considered an emotional read.

This has been compared to books like 'The Fault in Our Stars' but having stayed away from these types of read previously, I can't say if this is true or not.  On its own merits this was a sad and weepy read.  It gives you pause to think about life and living life to the full, putting your own life and issues into perspective.  A thought provoking read.

Author Information

Hi! I’m Melody Grace, author of the bestselling Beachwood Bay series. Some things about me:

1 I’m a small-town girl turned California beach lover.

2 I spent my childhood with my nose in a book before deciding to try and write one myself. I love all kinds of genres – from thrillers to YA and mystery – but romance has always been a passion of mine.

3 I love pistachio ice-cream, vanilla lattes, bad action movies, and Grey’s Anatomy (yes, I’m still watching… I can’t quit!).

4 I have an uncanny sense of direction. I once drove halfway across Canada without GPS or a map!

5 I have two adorable rascal cats named Bucky and Steve, I rescued them as kittens, and yes, I spoil them rotten.

6 I’m allergic to chocolate 🙁

7 I love sexy, heart-felt reads with strong heroines and swoon-worthy men. Why don’t you check out a couple of my books and meet your new book boyfriends?
