Book Review: That's a Promise by Victoria Klahr #50BookPledge

About the Book:

Pain isn’t new to me. 
I’ve been to hell only to find it never really leaves when you get back. It haunts me through nightmares, unrequited love, lies, broken hearts, and now death. 
A monster almost took my life. 
My best friend carries half my soul a world away. 
My boyfriend broke my heart but refuses to let me go. 
And my father is dead. 
I don’t believe in fate and I don’t believe in happily-ever-afters, but for some reason, I still hope. 
Live, even with a tainted spirit. 
Long for my other half to come back to me. 
Risk another broken heart, just to feel loved again. 
And refuse to let another horror break me. 
In the face of my most recent tragedy, I have to decide whether forgiveness is something I can give. But even if that’s an option, can I be forgiven?

About the Author:

Victoria Klahr (pronounced “Claire”) lives in Elizabeth City, North Carolina with her husband and daughter, Stephen and Alexis. She loves her chug (Pug/Chihuahua), Bandit, and daughter to pieces. She is a huge and proud book nerd who looks at her bookshelf in admiration daily. When she’s not daydreaming about book boyfriends and fantasizing about being a badass heroine like Rose Hathaway, she’s busy doing schoolwork for her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and writing the stories that speak to her in her head. She loves peanut butter with Oreos, good friends, amazing gossip, driving in the middle of merge lanes, comedies, crude humor, pretending like she can dance, pretending like she can kick major ass, and a really, really good laugh.


After reading the description of That's a Promise I was drawn into wanting to know more about the story and what journey the pages would take me on.  Josie is a strong character and very brave.  The pain and heartache she experiences in the book is not something that I would wish on anyone.  The author did a wonderful job with developing the characters and the story, both are very believable and entertaining.  Josie's pain and strength was evident and could be felt so vividly through the chapters. 

  From start to finish I was taken on  a great ride, but reminded that in a blind of an eye life can change and it is important to remember although there are many trials we will go through in life it will get better.  I look forward to additional books in this series and additional books by Victoria Klahr!
