Love Lies and Promises by Joanna Lambert.Love

(Authors online, 2010.)

Review by Laura Parish.

Love Lies and Promises follows on from where When Tomorrow Comes concludes.
When her romance with Matt Benedict doesn’t go as planned, Ella and Matt aren’t reunited until 1969. Things seem to be going well until Ella finds out he’s to marry someone else. Trying to put the heartache Matt causes behind her, Ella marries rich bad boy, Andy Macayne. Thinking she has it all, it’s not long before Ella’s past comes crashing back.

The Behind Blue Eyes trilogy continues and for me, it didn’t disappoint. Ella and Matt continue to master the art of bad timing and when it does look as if they will get together, something seems to once again separate them. I wanted to know if, by the end of this book, they would have worked things out and found each other.
There are moments where the plot and the behaviour of the characters surprised me (like in the first book.) I took this second instalment on holiday and finished it within a couple of days. I couldn’t put it down or wait to download the third instalment to find out what happens next.

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.
