Product Description

*Re-edited and re-published in June 2013

A woman striving for independence.
A man with a charmed upbringing.
A small town filled with welcoming and quirky characters.
Caroline had led the life of a high society daughter and wife, one that was filled with soul-destroying emotional abuse. When her husband unexpectedly dies, she finds herself broke and flees New York without a plan or destination in mind. Her travels lead her to Promise, a small town on the New England coast.
Following instinct, she settles in Promise and begins to explore her new found independence and the pleasurable side of love with ruggedly handsome local, Luke Edwards. Her contentment is shattered as past resurrects itself and she needs to find the courage to face it before she can truly re-build her life.

"Finding Promise" by Aneesa Price is a wonderful novel written in beautiful prose and has a believable and heart felt story line. I am not often taken in by romance novels like this, being often too cynic to enjoy love stories. However, the first few pages follow a very sad and grief struck Caroline. Not that her late husband has been the perfect husband, no, her feelings about her life back in New York are remarkably ambiguous.
Anyone who ever lost someone knows how time stands still or moves slower. Price mimics this perfectly in her prose. You can simply feel the sadness and the weight pulling her down as Caroline comes to realises she needs a new life. Price gives her character an eye for beauty and does not let her crash but gets her to move on with the view of a new life and new projects, like that house in Promise that she is going to restore to beauty.
I thought it was excellent writing how over the course of the first ten % of the book on my kindle the heaviness drops of Caroline and her spirit comes back. The story picks up pace just perfectly timed. She finds a new social life and on a girl’s night out she gets noticed by Luke, the brother of her new friend Luke and his business rival Brady.
Rebuilding the house becomes symbolic for the re-building or actually new building of her own life in this lovely place Promise, full of helpful people.
It is time for her scars to heal and become independent, shake of the ghosts from the past and learn to live for real.
Fortunately Price does not make it simplifying and unrealistically east for her heroine, nor does she create unconvincing obstacles in the way of romance. The problems Caroline faces are deep and they are being dealt with perfectly within the course of the novel.
I highly recommend this book to you if you like to feel good after you read a book. A must read for romance fans.

HASH(0xa2c1d654) out of 5 stars Go girl, go! Sept. 3 2012
By Wanda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A 5 * review of a very sweet romance.
Ok, so I am not the romance type, I was, long ago, when I was a teen and money was little and time was in abundance, I used to read a book a day of my sisters Mill's and Boons books after I finished reading my own book. But I over dosed on romance and too this day, I am not a fan of overly much romance in a book or heaven forbid a romance novel.
Thus, when starting this book, I went - oh my...... ok. Here we go. And indeed I went.
The one reason why this book made such a strong positive impression on me is because the woman in the book does something.
I hate it when a woman arrives at a home, look at the place, garden etc and say, I will get this place together. Translating in her waiting for a man to save her.
Not it this story. The woman realizes what she can and can't do and go at it with a passion. She gets help when she needs it but no glossing over the work parts to get to the hot steamy part here. Oh no, here you read how she works, how she comes to make decisions and how she works at her situation and her future. No astounding plot twists, no surreal insight. It is a romance, an adult romance at times. But still a romance. But one where the characters are human flawed and smart enough to know it. I loved the book for the fact that it is a real story. Not a romance disguised as a story. I can't wait to read more by this author.

Caroline Lowell is looking for a fresh start and a little independence. As she begins her new journey she could have never imagined what she would find when she took the exit to a small town called Promise. Friends, independence, and even love finds her in Promise but is she ready for the kind of love that is awaiting her? As she begins to learn what it means to be a friend and part of a small town she starts on a renovation of the house she fell in love with the first day she was in town. Now, as she works closely with the man, Luke, that is renovating her house, she realizes that she is trying heal herself as well as the house. Luke has fallen in love with Caroline but is she ready for the commitment? Her new friends want to see her happy but can they help her heal? Caroline really loves Promise and realizes that she is finding her own place in the small town when her friends suggest that she open her own business baking her famous baked goods. When her business takes off her friends Faith and Rachel decide to help her open a bakery in town. Now, she is forced to go back to where she came from to raise enough capital to get started but is she ready to face her demons? Will love be able to conquer all or will it come crashing down like the waves that beat at the base of the cliff below her new home? Will friendship and a place in town help her heal or will she be forced back to her roots by her overbearing, stuck up, snotty family?

If you enjoy awesome, heartfelt love stories then this is the story for you! Mrs. Price knows how to keep you interested from the first page to the very last! I love the way you can get totally wrapped up in her stories and you find yourself right there next to her characters feeling what they are feeling! I can't wait for the next book in this series! Please check her out! I know you won't be disappointed!

HASH(0xa2c1d984) out of 5 stars Poor grammar made it impossible to read this book March 16 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While the story was probably a good one, I gave up after about 30 pages because the grammatical and punctuation errors were just too distracting. The author (or at least her proofreader) does not know when to use commas and when NOT to use commas, and she specializes in sentences with the wrong verb that doesn't match the subject. After trying to ignore the errors and follow the story anyway, I just gave up. It is rare that I don't finish a book I start, but this one was just too painful. I started another book (different author who DOES understand the rules of writing), and it was like a breath of fresh air. Sorry, Aneesa, but I just couldn't stick with it.

By Janie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given this book by the author in return for an honest opinion.

Wow!!!! I'm not really the sort for romance to be honest, But holy hell this was a damn good read!!!! The plot and storyline was brilliantly strong throughout. There is something about this story that will appeal to all women no matter what their frame of mind or the current situation in life!!! This really was an exceptional read!!!!

HASH(0xa2c1deb8) out of 5 stars Building your PROMISE in life Nov. 30 2012
By Anne Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Author Aneesa Price has done it again!! What a spectacular story you'll find as you begin "Finding Promise". Yes, it's a romance, but also so more. You'll understand what I mean when you read this book.

It's a journey, a fresh start in life and a PROMISE of happiness. Caroline is looking for all that, and she finds it plus amazing new things to be added to her life. (not going tell you)

A little town called Promise offers Caroline a glimpse at just how great of a person she is. What she can do by herself, taking charge of the situations, tackling them one by one, then and only then does she ask for help on the ones that she can't do by herself. GO Caroline, you can do it.

A lesson in life as a women, for that matter as a person... you can do things on your own, even though you have always that you couldn't and you had always leaned on or depended on the help of someone. You, yourself can build that future, a place, a home, a promise of self gratification, but most importantly is that your own future is YOURS so take a shot at building your own future.

Finding Promise will lead you through new beginnings, new friends, a new life, and yes a new love! Healing comes with time, as you rebuild trust. Opening your mind and heart to a whole new world. Kind of like the way Caroline is rebuilding or renovating her new home. Time and a lot of patience is what it takes. Oh my, the sense of worth that you will gain and find is elating. It brings a smile to my face just thinking of the end results of whats in the Promise, the promise of feeling complete. Of self worth.

Thank you so much Author Aneesa Price for this brilliant novel. One we all can take a piece from and apply to our own lives.

Readers, don't be turned away from the thought of this being a romance, because it's also a lesson in life. Please take the time to read this one, "Finding Promise" will have you reading it to the end, and not being disappointed at all.

Excellent and brilliant read. I highly recommend.
