Promises at Indigo Bay by Ellyn Oaksmith / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @ellynoaksmith 

Blue Hills #2

Our life together meant more to me than he could possibly imagine. I just wanted another night. I thought I knew what was coming. A proposal. If only it had been that simple.

Things are finally working out for Stella Gallagher. Unlucky in love and faced with limited options in her small town, she was beginning to give up on romance altogether, until mysterious Italian Paolo Gentillo moved to Chelan…

Paolo is smart, kind, gorgeous and, most importantly, they’re completely obsessed with each other: Stella has finally found her match. Everything would be perfect, except there are things she hasn’t told Paolo—she doesn’t know how he’s going to feel about her when he finds out about her past…

So when Paolo proposes, Stella panics: it’s way too soon. She wants to be with him, but suddenly they’re talking about forever. He doesn’t even know the real her, she’s scared to face up to her secret, and she’s never felt so alone. Is the damage from her past going to threaten her chance at a perfect future?


Book 2 of this series and I adored it. I really enjoyed the first one, but this one even entertained me more.

There were still some devastating revelations, but there was a lot of humour too. Some funny little things that made me smirk and some sad ones that broke my heart AND a scene that made my eyes well up and my heart melt. Great ingredients mixed into a wonderful story.

The author has created some characters you want to hug, others you would like to slap.

Deal with the bad times and live your life to the fullest is an important message I will keep in mind.

I loved the views over Lake Chelan and Lake I-am-not-telling, because we are going on a trip.

My advice : sit back and enjoy this fabulous book.  You will not regret it, believe me.

I hope I will meet up with these lovely people again soon. In the meantime, the countdown has started. 5 stars.

Thank you, Ellyn Oaksmith and Bookouture
