Book Overview

“Promise me one thing. Promise me you’ll live.”

Claire Fortune arrives in Boston with an old notebook and her best friend’s dying wish – to finish the scribbled bucket list that Hope didn’t have time to complete. Moment by moment, Claire builds a life she never dreamed of – until Theo walks into the coffee-shop one crisp September afternoon, and her careful plans scatter on the winds.

Sometimes a chance meeting can change a life forever.
Sometimes fate knows exactly what we need.

Perfect for fans of ‘Me Before You’ and ‘The Fault in Our Stars’, ‘The Promise’ brings together two people searching for a love that can overcome tragedy. A heartbreakingly romantic novel that challenges us to live – and love - every day as if it were our last.

My Review

What an adventure! From the moment I read the blurb I just knew that this book would definitely hit me on the right spots and I have never been so happy I'm actually right! I've read a couple of books from the author and by far, this is my favorite from her!

Honestly, there are so many things to say about this book. The on point lines, the laughter I shared with it, the way I could relate at the same time reflect on the characters and the whole plot of the book was just, absolutely beautiful. Also, fair warning, I cried, hard, for this book.

I've mentioned before that I've read a couple of books from the author, right? Now trust me when I say that there is something about this book that is different than her previous ones. I'm actually really happy of how this book turned out although I felt a lot of heartache from the book plus, the fact that I can't share too much without revealing the plot just... makes me want to cry again.


Hi! I’m Melody Grace, author of the bestselling Beachwood Bay series. Some things about me:

1 I’m a small-town girl turned California beach lover.

2 I spent my childhood with my nose in a book before deciding to try and write one myself. I love all kinds of genres – from thrillers to YA and mystery – but romance has always been a passion of mine.

3 I love pistachio ice-cream, vanilla lattes, bad action movies, and Grey’s Anatomy (yes, I’m still watching… I can’t quit!).

4 I have an uncanny sense of direction. I once drove halfway across Canada without GPS or a map!

5 I have two adorable rascal cats named Bucky and Steve, I rescued them as kittens, and yes, I spoil them rotten.

6 I’m allergic to chocolate 🙁

7 I love sexy, heart-felt reads with strong heroines and swoon-worthy men. Why don’t you check out a couple of my books and meet your new book boyfriends?
