The Wedding Promise by Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer is a very, very excellent book.
Liza takes over an Inn on Angel Island that her Aunt and Uncle use to run. They have passed away, so Liza and her brother could sell the Inn or run it. They decided to run it. That was what Book 1 The Inn at Angel Island was about. It was a super book also. In this book The Wedding Promise two young people fell in love in this area and thought it would be wonderful to be married at the Inn. Liza is very n
Another book read to the wife. She loves to be read to, she always has. Reading is one of the few things that we can do together

We both thought that this was a so-so book. The wedding planning details were boring and dragged along for much of the book, but finally after some drama, the wedding happened. Then there was some last minute drama with Liza and her carpenter friend that felt like it was thrown in to complete the book. There is a third book in the series, but I'm not sure that we will

This was the second in the Angel island series By Thomas Kinkade and kathryn Spence. It did not disappoint and was an enjoyable read.

He brought in some of our favorites from his Cape Light series. I enjoy hearing about those character as that series has come down to a Christmas book only each year.

This book is about a young couple who wants to get married at the Inn, that was so prominent in the first book. Liza, who took over the Bed and Breakfast after her aunt died, reluctantly tries hostin

As Liza continues transforming her inn on Angel Island, she is approached by an excited couple who knew her Aunt Elizabeth and wish to be married outside the inn in the gardens. But Liza has never put on a wedding and isn't sure she can handle the job, especially with the inn still being in disrepair. Her friend Claire and Daniel, the local carpenter and handyman, encourage Liza with the promise that her aunt would have been thrilled to accommodate the young, romantic couple. When Daniel asks Li ...more
I just love the Thomas Kinkade/Katherine Spencer books. I have read all of them. I would call their titles light Christian romances with a focus on the geography of coastal New England. The two series are: Cape Light and Angel Island.

New England, and especially the coast, have always been favorites of mine so I enjoy most titles that are set in these areas.

I happen to be Jewish rather than Christian, but I do read lots of Christian fiction, especially historical fiction, because the plots, chara

The Angel Island series is just an enjoyable read. It's easy to feel like you're right there at the Inn along side Liza having coffee while Claire is making something spectacular in the kitchen.

In Kinkade and Spencer's second book returning to Angel Island, Liza is working to get her inn up and running. She has lots of help (with construction) from the handsome Daniel and of course Claire, the angel-like cook/housekeeper/wise advsior. Liza gets her first wedding scheduled at the inn and is thrilled to be like her aunt who ran the inn for so many years and hosted wedddings. But is the inn ready for a wedding or is Liza ready to deal with the bride's mother and the stress of having a "pe ...more
If I could rate this among all the others in the Cape Light/Angel Inn series, it would get four stars. But if I'm being honest, because it is such a light, almost fluff read, I can't do it. I enjoyed it and read it as quickly as I could because I was enjoying the story so much. Was a bit disappointed with the climactic event that occurred toward the end because it felt so cheesy-unrealistic, but that is to be expected in a series whose goal is to tie most of their stories up in a neat little bow ...more

Great love story w/a twist.
For as much as my husband teases me about reading books written by Thomas Kinkade, this was a fun, light read. It didn’t have as much about the mysterious guardian angels as the first book, which was a bit disappointing, but the story of Liza coming into her own as an innkeeper was nice.

I also liked the story of the bride and groom. It showed how easy it is for misunderstandings to arise as two people are learning how to communicate with each other and make decisions as a couple.
This book covers a very important topic that often crumbles in a marriage...communication, especially on our own thoughts and feelings about difficult decisions. You see both leading couples struggling with simple communication with each other, because no one wants to hurt anyone else's feelings. I'm only giving this three stars, because I really did expect more from Thomas Kinkade. The book flowed okay, but there times I just felt as if I didn't connect with the characters very well.

This is book 2 in the Angel Island series. While I don't feel there's as much depth as his Cape Light series there are characters that cross over between both series which makes it interesting. It was fun to reconnect with some of the characters. There was a lot of conflict, anxiety and secrets but in the end there were 2 very nice happily ever afters. I look forward to continuing to read future books set on Angel Island.

Overall an enjoyable read. It was clean and uplifting. But I think the author did miss out on some possible twists and turns at the end of the novel that could have related more to the "miraculous" history of the island. The ending seemed a little too contrived and unspectacular. But there's such a shortage of clean romance that I'd recommend this series and the "Cape Light" series to others.

I would have liked to have seen a little more romance in this story. I think that more could have been done with the history of the inn; Liza and Daniel could have had a more interesting relationship if they had worked on the inn together and created a little chemistry. Overall, it was a good book that was also an easy read.

I enjoyed reading "The Wedding Promise" by Thomas Kinkade & Katherine Spencer. I look forward to reading "The Inn at Angel Island" and "A Wandering Heart". I might read this book again after reading "The Inn at Angel Island" since it's the first book in the Angel Island series.

Love these books! Wish I could live there for real. Or at least visit the inn for a couple of nights. Needed to hear some of what Pastor Ben said to the young couple about marriage and use it for my own marriage. Can't wait to read the next one.

This was a very inspirationally beautiful and uplifting write. I loved the chaste incorporation and how the sweet romance budded slowly yet determinedly. The whole review is available at so go ahead and visit to see the review!

I enjoyed this book. I like that it is connected with the Cape Light novels which are also by Kinkade and Spencer. A very fine series of books with strong characters and descriptive places.

I wanted to visit angel island after reading this book. It sounded like a relaxing place where anything was possible. I liked it better once I got into it the beginning was a little slow.

I really enjoyed this book - it's a very nice, uplifting story and even includes a RECIPE!!! I will definitely look for more books by Thomas Kinkade.

Still a great book, but not quite as engaging and descriptive as those in the Cape Light series and the first book in the Inn at Angel Island series

The second installment to the Angel Island series is very good. I love how this series and the Cape Light series intertwine.

Great second book in the Angel Island series. I hope Katherine Spencer continues the saga.
Library book, predictable but good for some escapism. Setting island off New England.
