Publisher's Summary

The town of Promise, Texas, is a good place to live, to raise a family, to spend the rest of your days with the person you love.

Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane, also known as Dr. Texas, certainly think so. The last thing they expect is a threat to their marriage. But in September, disagreements begin to escalate, with the "help" of an attractive young woman who's got her eye on Cal.

After months of emotional upheaval brought on by doubts about their marriage, the two separate, and Jane returns to her childhood home in California, taking their children.

Cal, now alone on his ranch, is forced to confront what he really wants in his life, what he needs. Jane is confronting the same questions.

Glad it was short ...

I listen to a lot of Debbie's books and like her. When I'm paying for books, I go for at least 8 hrs, preferably more. I thought this new 'Romance' addition would be a good opportunity to listen to some of the shorter ones. I'll have to say that i was GLAD this one was short. Most of it was arguments ... and the reader did a great job of making them SOUND like arguments! Not a fun listen for me ... Your tastes may differ. ;)

Typical Macomber....Promises fulfilled

Every Debbie Macomber Book contains enough detail so you know every character and to enjoy every moment of past, present, and upcoming romances, marriages and lives. If you enjoyed Promise, TX as much as I did, this book brings it all together.

Narrator’s voice is so annoying...

I had to stop listening. Just sounded like bickering. And boring story line was probably written in a day.

Another 5 star book

Debbie Macomber has written another heart touching novel. I really ejoyed it and appreciate a book based on christian values. I don't know how she does it, but she continues to write them so effortlessly.

Horrible narrator

In all fairness I couldn’t get through this book. I love Debbie Macomber’s stories but this narrator’s voices were so over exaggerated I couldn’t even pay attention to the storyline. If I could have given it one star I would have.

Not my favorite storyline. The writing was good.

Story line was weak. I normally really like this author. The characters were didn't have believable responses.
