DNF for me on the first book in this series and although I own the rest of the series o will not be reading it. I could feel it putting me into a slump and so I've elected to put it down and move onto something else.

This is a long book for me, but it's well worth the read! Rusty has a heart of gold for those children. She wants each child to have a loving home with terrific parents. She's also a God-fearing woman who knows that no matter what, He is always in charge and has our best interests.
Chase McCandles is presented in the beginning of the book as a man who has his priorities mixed up. Work before anything else. He'd be described today as a bit of a "workaholic." Meeting Rusty changes all that. Rusty t

Promise Me Tomorrow is a romance story written by a Christian writer. The religious parts of the story were not too bad, generally speaking. The characters and actual story held me through most of those scenes. There was only one scene that was too much for me, which I skipped altogether. Apart from that it’s a romantic story about a man and woman and the obstacles they must overcome to be together. It’s sweet, sloppy and totally predictable, but I loved it.

I feel shy in admitting this, but it’s

I m not a big fan of romance novells because there are only a few well written(I reccomend Jane Austen, btw). So, I was expecting it to be bad...It turned to be better than I expected, but it also had a lot of... "no one told him about her eyes: blue, like the flowers in his garden. But, no: they were darker than this. Purple, she had purple eyes." I just hate this kind of things.
At least is better than most of the books written now.

Great book. This was my 1st time reading it and seeing Clay again (a fav character from a previous book) was delightful. It was nice to see that they'd overcome challenges and had a family despite physical challenges. The main female character Rusty is thier daughter. Her attitude and spontaneous nature makes her a very likable character. Book has some interesting turns but kinda predictable and Clay even predicts the end correctly half way through the book. Fun relaxing light romantic read with ...more

•Promise Me Tomorrow Bk 4 ISBN: 9781565076952

Good story of Rusty who works at the orphanage and Chase who escorted her and two children to their new home. The story of a very private man and a very impetuous lady, and the adventures that brings them together.

I can’t tell you how amazing this book is! By far the best from the Rocky Mountain Memories series. So Christ centered and amazing story line! The romance thrown in only made it better! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I just finished the Rocky Mountain series. I read these books a few years ago but I loved them this time around just as much. The characters are believable and endearing. Lori Wick handles her characters, flaws and all, with grace and tenderness

I love Lori Wick, but this one was not a favorite. Seemed to drag a little and was predictable. Great message -but slow.

This is such a cute book. I love it and my copy is pretty torn up from me reading it so many times and flipping to pages that held my favorite parts. 11/10 would recommend.

This is from my own bookshelf and another reread. I adored this book just as much as the first time I read it. Yes it has its christian book moments and though I skimmed lots of those bits I still appreciated the heart warming tale. Yes, this is the hallmark channel come to print and its characters really are what grabbed my attention. Rusty is young and innocent, very naive but likable. She isn't so stupid to discount the attraction of the MC which is Chase. I loved how Chase spent the whole bo ...more

I enjoyed Lori Wick's novels when I was fresh out of college, especially her British series. As far as conservative Christian romance novelists go, she definitely has made quite a name for herself. The story was well-written--the characters had depth and the descriptive setting of the late 1800's West was spot-on. To be honest, I think I've just grown to a point where I can appreciate Christian undertones, but am a bit "weirded out" by the overt nature of Lori's books. Again, they're very well-w ...more

Katherine Taggart, known as Rusty because of her red hair, adores children and is able to indulge her love for them by working in her family's orphanage. When she accompanies two orphans to their new home, Rusty meets wealthy Chase McCandles and soon finds herself falling in love with him. On the surface, Chase, a believer in God, appears to be everything a devout Christian would want. However, Rusty discovers that Chase treats his own son Quintin with great distance, and she is reluctant to pur ...more

I'm not sure what exactly it is about this gentle little love story that always has me coming back for another reread, but finishing it always makes me feel happy and a little sad it's over again until the next time. The plot progresses at a quiet, unhurried pace with enjoyable characters, and the love story is far from center stage until the last couple of chapters. Yet, for all its seemingly understated qualities, every couple of years I find myself eager to pick it up again.

Much better. I love Rusty and her connection with children. I love how she brings both Quintin and Chase out of their shells. I especially love that she brings us back to the Taggart family, and that we find out what happened to the chidlren from the other books. Aside from the final chapter, which leaps ahead some 14 years (Grrrr), a very good read.

This book has a classic storyline, but it was so enjoyable to read. I enjoyed the entire book so much that I hardly skipped anything, which is rare for me. I loved all of the characters. Very well written. The experience of reading the whole book was so fun, that I could see myself reading the entire book over again in the future. I feel it deserves my coveted five star rating.

Lori Wick takes her time to tell a story and sometimes I am not in the mood for it. The last couple of chapters in this book had the action. As always, with Lori, the action includes a love story. Even though this book was the fourth in a series, it didn't matter that I had read the others. There was only slight mention of the other characters.

This book is so cute!! I really can't say anything more except there is one thing that I believe and this author obviously doesn't and that is that though Salvation is for everyone it (the promises of Salvation) can only be obtained through baptism (Matthew 28:18, Mark 16:16), but anyways a really cute story indeed!!

Rusty is one of my favorite characters. A tiny redhead who loves deeply, especially children; however, when she feels an injustice has been perpetrated against a child, her mothering instincts have a tendency to get her into trouble. As with most if not all of Lori Wick's books, this one is also a heartwarming romance. I have read this one more than once, and most likely will several more times.

This is the only Lori Wick book that I've read that I liked because it wasn't filled with Christians judging other Christians as lost because they don't believe exactly the same way.

This book had a sweet and believable story and I liked the characters, however it wasn't incredibly inspired or exciting.

This is a wonderful book. This is the 4th out of 4 books in the Rocky Mountain series & I love how Lori Wick gives updates on the people in the other books in the series. I get so attached to the characters & love to read the little parts about how they're doing. ...more
