at my siteVictoria Eastman places an ad in the newspaper for a husband hoping for a positive future for herself and her boys She accepts an offer to meet the only man who didn’t mention her wifely duties out of the several who answered her ad All her hopes and dreams for the future are scattered when she arrives in Wyoming Territory to learn that her possible future husband has diedColt McBride runs his family’s ranch with some hired hands after his brothers left to find their future when their father died Colt’s fast draw with a gun has kept him safe so far in a territory that reuires protection from others wanting what’s yours When his best friend turns up dead Colt blames the one man who is making all their lives a living hellEuan Wallace a rich rancher determined to buy up all the land around him or use his hired guns to help him acuire it manages to stay just one step ahead of the law Especially when he has the sheriff on his payroll and kills the judgeWhen Victoria finds out that her now deceased mail order husband has willed her his farm she decides to stay on in Wyoming Territory and send for her boys Colt feels responsible for his best friend’s betrothed and tries

Victoria and sway her opinion toward his innocence hoping to obtain her farm Will Colt stand by and let Victoria marry Euan before he proves his guilt in his best friend’s deathA creative story PROMISES KEPT includes a mail order husband ranchers struggling to keep their animals fed and watered farmers hoping to retain their land soiled doves causing trouble a saloon overflowing with whiskey gambling and gun fights – not always in that order cattle rustling plus gunslingers on both sides determined to prove their prowessI’m particularly fond of mail order bride stories and westerns so I especially enjoyed the several twists in this one In addition to the future husband winding up dead Victoria is running from something but we’re not sure what There’s also the mystery of the twin boys she’s protecting as well as the past that haunts herI enjoyed this story but there were a few things that felt awkward There seemed to be too many characters playing the same type of roles when they could have been combined to make the story less confusing such as two soiled doves causing the same trouble or two gunslingers as villains Also I didn’t realize this book was inspirational until toward the end Without any warning the faith message came into play and it felt out of place I enjoy inspirational stories with a faith message but there’s usually some hint earlier in the novel that it’s heading in that direction The violent nature of the God fearing hero didn’t always make sense How can he attend Sunday services read the Bible and think about killing people consistently and still be a viable believer I get it that it’s the West in a really rough time and everyone has to defend themselves but Colt seemed a little blood thirsty and out for revenge for someone trying to convince Victoria to reconnect with her faith Had he been struggling with his faith and it was Victoria doing the convincing it would have been less of a red flagThere was good adventure in this story and some endearing characters Victoria’s boys are cute and they soften Colt’s rough nature The dog was a good addition but there was a situation with him that made me wonder about its inclusion Victoria is a brave woman restarting her life in a rough territory especially with the boys and as a single source of income for their survival I liked her choice of friends and ability to stand up for herself when necessary Even though Victoria was stereotypically gorgeous in a territory full of men her good heart and innocence was charming I liked that her cooking was a big attraction as well and that the book didn’t rely on just her beauty for all the men tripping all over themselves around herAlthough I’m looking forward to books in this series I felt that PROMISES KEPT seemed rushed at the end Adding characters toward the end makes sense for the next book but I would have preferred to get to know them a bit at the beginning It just seemed rushed and overly convenient as a set up by adding them at the end making the flow a bit choppy and not as natural as I expected from the majority of the book The last few chapters took away from the main characters’ romance so maybe the book should have been a bit longer to compensate for the new introductionsEven though I found some inconsistencies they were never enough to stop me from reading The flavor of the west pulls the story forward with promise of resolution A good beginning to a western historical series with potential PROMISES KEPT sets the stage for book two FINDING PROMISE Look for LAST PROMISE due to release April 26 2016 Western inspirational fans will enjoy Scarlett Dunn’s creative styleReview by Dorine courtesy of Romance Junkies and The Zest uest Print ARC provided by the publisher
