"Love trancends time and can conquer all"
On a much-needed vacation from both an overly strenuous
and the reemergence of an abusive ex-boyfriend (Sean),
Christine Hart goes to Florida. When she arrives at the
Monk Inn Bed and Breakfast she suddenly finds herself
facing the place that has haunted her dreams for years.
For Alejandro Martinez Garcia, the arrival of Christine
will finally allow him to exact a revenge he has waited
over two hundred years to dish out. However, first he
needs to squash the emotions she stirs within him and
convince her to help the descendants of his family save
Dealing with a ghost who makes her heart flutter and
accelerate is one thing, but dealing with what Alejandro
calls "her past life" is harder for Christine to accept.
When Sean follows her to Florida, Christine and Alejandro
must quickly solve an old mystery and deal with old hurts
before history repeats itself.
Eden Robins has written a wonderful tale of how despite
everything, love both transcends time and can conquer all.
Because Christine is the reincarnation of Christina -- who
initially betrayed Alejandro - I had some confusion between
the two women. This and some rough transitions between
sentences were distracting and hardly seem mentionable but
because of this, I wasn't sucked in.
YESTERDAY'S PROMISE paints a wonderful visual image of
Augustine for the old world of Christina and modern world
of Christine; however the history of the area bordered on
being too much.
I think I have a hard time with ghost stories in
because even though the ending was heart warming, it wasn't
quite what I wanted/needed. I liked Alejandro. He had
been wronged by Christina, and had been waiting two hundred
years for the incarnated woman to return so he could have
his revenge. He tried, but found himself falling in love
with her instead.
I laughed and cried. YESTERDAY'S PROMISE is a fun story
and good for a light read.
