The Promise of Breeze Hill Review


 About the Book

Anxious for his brothers to join him on the rugged frontier along the Mississippi River, Connor O'Shea has no choice but to indenture himself as a carpenter in exchange for their passage from Ireland. But when he's sold to Isabella Bartholomew of Breeze Hill Plantation, Connor fears he'll repeat past mistakes and vows not to be tempted by the lovely lady.

The responsibilities of running Breeze Hill have fallen on Isabella's shoulders after her brother was found dead in the swamps along the Natchez Trace and a suspicious fire devastated their crops, almost destroyed their home, and left her father seriously injured. Even with Connor's help, Isabella fears she'll lose her family's plantation. Despite her growing feelings for the handsome Irish carpenter, she seriously considers accepting her wealthy and influential neighbor's proposal of marriage.

Soon, though, Connor realizes someone is out to eliminate the Bartholomew family. Can he set aside his own feelings to keep Isabella safe? (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I have enjoyed Pan Hillman's writing and was anxious to read this new story. I like the setting and Connor O'Shea is a great hero for this story line. It took me awhile to warm up to Isabella but in the end I enjoyed all of the characters in this book. At times it was a bit slow for me, though I know others have loved this book more than me. It was just a difficult book for me to fully enjoy. There is some sweet romance and good writing it just wasn't my favorite book by Hillman. 

Thanks to Tyndale for offering me a free copy to read in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
