BookReview: Promises to Keep by Patricia Sands

Reviewer: Annie

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest interview.

Promises to KeepSummary:

The painful memories from her life back in Toronto will never be distant enough, but Katherine Price finds peace under the autumn sky in the South of France…and a deepening, dizzying love with Philippe. Together, they savor the delicacies and splendor of life, toasting to a future filled with happiness and hope—a life far away from the heartache they both knew so well.

But during a trip to the medieval village of Entrevaux, a strange note turns into a dangerous car chase. Philippe reveals he has a troubling secret—and the couple’s new life together threatens to crumble before it can begin. Now that Katherine has everything she’s ever wanted, is she about to lose it all?

Promises to Keep is the heartfelt second addition to award-winning author Patricia Sands’s Love in Provence trilogy—and a stirring reminder that it’s never too late to be joyfully surprised by love, life, or even yourself.


Patricia Sands brings Katherine Price back to us in book 2 in her “Love in Provence” Series. I put this book down, seriously awaiting book 3! Patricia Sands really knows how to make you want more….Like a serious cliff hanger in a movie or television show, remember, “Who shot JR?”…yes, that kind of suspense.

Kat is staying in France with her new love, Philippe and their love is both strong and beautiful.  Their loyalty will be tested when they take a road trip to Entrevaux, and Kat discovers that Philippe has a secret that he is not quite ready to share. Sensing the danger, Kat is very concerned and anxious about what it is he is not sharing with her. Can she trust him?  How long can she go without knowing what is going on?

Patricia Sands has a gift for filling all of your senses with the wonderment of the South of France.  I was often spellbound by the beauty; with the foods, traditions and scenery. I long to go to a Market there!  I wish I could see some of the pictures that Kat took. My head is flooded with beautiful things right now…this story is simply beautiful. A stunning backdrop always makes for a great story, and Patricia Sands certainly delivers.

I love Kat! All of her adventures are fun and interesting.  She is a character that has a huge zest for life, and it is very exciting to travel alongside her. These stories are like a mini-vacation.  I am seriously considering revisiting my French language classes.

I am happy to report that the full cast of characters from “The Promise of Provence” are back!! Even Andrea and Molly back in Toronto are a large part of this story. You will meet new people, but revisit everyone else.

Above all, this is a story of love. Love for each other, and Love for Life!

Le Plaisir!

    I’m loving that you are loving going along on Katherine’s adventures as her life dramatically changes. It’s always a treat to be in the south of France and it’s reassuring to think that we all have a chance to make changes in our life, if the need is there. Life is full of choices! Thanks for another fabulous review!
