The Promise Box By Tricia Goyer Review

Seven Brides For Seven Bachelors Series, Book 2

Every year, young Amish men descend on the cozy little town of West Kootenai, Montana, arriving in the spring to live there for six months and receive 'resident' status for the hunting season in the fall. They arrive as bachelors, but go home with brides! In The Promise Box, the second book of best-selling author Tricia Goyer's Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors series, Lydia Wyse, a book editor from Seattle who grew up Amish, returns to the small community of West Kootenai to give comfort to her father after her mother's death. She is drawn back to the familiar Amish ways after finding her mother's most precious possession, a Promise Box of prayers and scripture. What her publisher sees, though, is an opportunity for a sensational 'tell-all' book about the Amish. Lydia soon finds herself falling in
love with Amish bachelor Gideon Hooley. She wants nothing more than to forget her past and look forward to a future as an Amish bride. But will the pain of her childhood---and her potential betrayal of her community---keep her from committing her whole heart?

I was lucky enough to read the first book in Seven Brides for Seven Bachelors Series by Tricia Goyer. I was also lucky enough to join her 2013 Fiction Launch Team.

Oh to the review- I am always pretty pleased with Tricia's writing ability and her ability to help people healed threw her written and spoken words. She seems to be a genuine person via Facebook, since I have yet to meet her face to face. So with that said how could I ever bash any of her books? Yes, I did enjoy the book! Of course I did. Now this book did catch me a little off guard. Not like most books were the love story comes and then you don't know if they fall in love until closer to the end. This one, well it all takes place mostly in the beginning of the book. I WAS AMAZED. We have reasons for that, because you still have some suspense and page turning taking place in the middle and end of the book. I can not wait until the next in the series is out! I am in love with this one, can not stop at just the two, or put it down until finished! Disclosures- I am a part of the authors launch team. All opinions are my own.
