Love's Promises takes place in the 1980s. I really didn't notice anything that would make me think it was a historical book, but from my understanding, it was important to set it during that time period to make some of the work with TRPA appropriate. I'd never heard of the TRPA, so I learned a few things from my reading. That's always a bonus!

I had fun in this book! Greg is one quirky fellow. He snaps his fingers a good bit, and honestly, I had a hard time picturing it. I found myself randomly s

LOVE'S PROMISES is a story about Monica Scott’s determination to build a house, designed by her father, on an environmental sensitive plot of land in the Tahoe Basin area of California in the 1980’s. Her plans are thwarted by Greg Linsey, an agent with the organization charged with protecting the quality of life in the area.

Well-motivated characters and the different ways love is expressed, fill this story with thoughtful inspiration. I enjoyed the sense of hiking and exploring the beautiful sc

Sandra Leesmith has again written a story that makes me want to take a vacation! She has a way of making her settings come alive and draws readers in to make them want to stay a while. In Love's Promises, we meet Monica and Greg and get an insider's view of what life is like in Tahoe. There are instant sparks when these two meet, but Sandra does a great job of allowing the relationship to develop a little slower

Love's Promises by Sandra Leesmith is quite different from any Christian fiction that I've read. It's not really the theme or the romance that sets it apart, but rather the setting and the fact that the story focuses a lot on the environment and ecology. I really enjoyed the fact that the setting (Lake Tahoe) played such an important role in Monica and Greg's relationship. However, as a romance I felt it lacked a bit. I can't put my finger on it, but they didn't mesh as well as the Margo and Zan ...more

I loved the gorgeous setting in Lake Tahoe, the battle between developers and environmentalists, and sailing on Lake Tahoe! This would be a good read for anyone who enjoys sweet Christian romance. 3.6 Stars

I loved this book. It is well written with well developed characters. I loved the fact that it was set at Lake Tahoe. Having lived near Lake Tahoe for about 6 years, made the scenery come alive for me. I look forward to reading more from this author.
