Blog Tour Book Review – Abby’s Promise by Rebekah Dodson

31st July 2018

Today I’m on the Blog Tour of a book that’s a little bit different to the one’s I have reviewed in the past.  I bring you Abby’s Promise, a women’s fiction, or Should we call it a romance novel? Either way its most definitely not Crime fiction.

About Abby’s Promise

Abby was left heartbroken eight years ago when her best friend joined the Marines. As time moved on, so did she.

Now, Joey is back and attending community college.

When their paths cross once again, the sparks fly. But will secrets from the last eight years leave both broken-hearted once again?

My Review

It’s been a while since I read a good romance novel.

I usually find them either too ‘sexed up’ & lacking in plot or so long-winded they lose their excitement.

Abby’s Promise was neither.

Fast paced and emotional without shoving sex in my face, it provided me with some much needed escapism and I finished it in less than 24 hours.

Rebekah Dodson did the characters justice and allowed space and time to get to know them without Straying too far from the plot.

Joey and Abby’s tale runs the same way as many romance novels (you know the backwards and forwards, a little bit of tragedy and the almost, but not quite, loss of life). but it doesn’t detract from the book at all.

This book is the perfect read for anybody who loves a little romance with an edgy storyline and no” in-your-face’ sex scenes.

    I don’t tend to read romance novels anymore for the same reasons as you, lack of plots seem to be a disappointing counterpart of romance novels so it’s good to hear that wasn’t the case with this book. Sounds like a great storyline with a bit of intrigue

    We always find that romance novels have a bit too much sex for us as well. Sounds like a good storyline x
