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.
