READ AND REVIEW
THE COLOR OF A PROMISE (THE COLOR OF HEAVEN) BY JULIANNE MACLEAN
Release Date: July 26, 2016
From USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean comes the next instalment in her popular Color of Heaven Series, where people are affected by real life magic and miracles that change everything they once believed about life and love.
Having spent a lifetime in competition with his older brother Aaron—who always seemed to get the girl—Jack Peterson leaves the U.S. to become a foreign correspondent in the Middle East. When a roadside bomb forces him to return home to recover from his wounds, he quickly becomes the most celebrated journalist on television, and is awarded his own prime time news program. Now, wealthy and successful beyond his wildest dreams, Jack believes he has finally found where he is meant to be. But when a giant commercial airliner explodes in the sky over his summer house in Cape Elizabeth, all hell breaks loose as the wreckage crashes to the ground. He has no idea that his life is about to take another astonishing turn…
Meg Andrews grew up with a fear of flying, but when it meant she wouldn’t be able to visit her boyfriend on the opposite side of the country, she confronted her fear head-on and earned her pilot’s license. Now, a decade later, she is a respected airline crash investigator, passionate about her work, to the point of obsession. When she arrives in the picturesque seaside community of Cape Elizabeth to investigate a massive airline disaster, she meets the famous and charismatic Jack Peterson, who has his own personal fascination with plane crashes.
As the investigation intensifies, Meg and Jack feel a powerful, inexplicable connection to each other. Soon, they realize that the truth behind the crash—and the mystery of their connection—can only be discovered through the strength of the human spirit, the timeless bonds of family, and the gift of second chances.
REVIEW: THE COLOR OF A PROMISE (THE COLOR OF HEAVEN) BY JULIANNE MACLEAN
The Color of a Promise by Julianne MacLean
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I am a little disappointed in myself. How could I not have known Ms. Maclean wrote contemporary romance. Having read a number of her short stories and full length historical romances, I have been aware of her as an author for quite a while. Her historicals are full of the fantasy fairytale settings that are loved by most women and the warrior hero ready to lend a hand to the damsel in distress but after reading The Color of a Promise, her gift for writing inspirational and dramatic stories is an extraordinary find. The Color of A Promise mixes drama, cinema and motivational writing into a fascinating read that touches the heart, gives food for thought and sparks hope. Jack and Meg found a place of protection during a time of tragedy and that is all a person can hope for in life. I received an ARC of this wonderful novel in exchange for an honest review. I am going to have to look into the rest of this series.
