3 ⭐⭐⭐ - OK decent reads.
My first reading by this author.
divorced couple
heroine has boyfriend
two teenage children
second chance

After ten years of marriage, two healthy kids, several deployments, and five moves, I could honestly say I loved Jillian and our life together more today than the day we married.

Looking down, she placed a hand on her flat belly. “I wasn’t going to say anything, but I’m pregnant.” “Seriously?”

That horrible night I’d lost both the bab

Very moving story

What a story! I didn't want to read it but I did. I liked Keith very much and I liked the heroine but they really made me angry. She is dating a very nice guy. I am not sure she was sleeping with him because it never says. It doesn't mention her husband's activities either and honestly I downbeat to know. But Lyla and Avery were interesting characters. Everyone in this book mAde me want to know more about them. Such a very moving book. I liked the family dynamics and how everyth

Jillian is the love of Keith's life. When he wakes up after being shot, he has amnesia and has forgotten the last seven years of his life. He doesn't remember that they are divorced, that Jillian is now with another man or that his sons are teenagers. As Jillian helps him to regain his memory, he remembers the terrible secret that drove him into his downward spiral. If they are to have a life together again, he must reveal the secret and hope for her forgiveness. I loved this story and the narra ...more

Definitely a unique plot for book two in this contemporary romance series. Keith suffers from amnesia but knows he wants his wife Jillian back.

Sweet story and secondary character Lyla was a nice addition.

A story where PTSD was quite well developed and detailed, which I throughly enjoyed.
However, there were some cliches in the story, that I wished were written in a different manner which took this from a four star to a three star.

I loved the writing style and Jillian was so real to me. I wanted to read the story and learn the end! I am enjoying the fact that there are more books written about married couples now than ever before.

Imagine that your Keith and you wake up in the hospital and you have no memory of the last several years of your life. The last thing you remembers is getting on a plane on your way overseas for your deployment, your wife is pregnant, you have two young sons, and your brother-in-law is deploying with your unit. You wake up to find that your sons are teenagers, your brother-in-law was killed, you're divorced, and your wife lost the baby. This is Keith life, it's turned totally upside down.

Loved this book!

I couldn't put this book down until I finished. I was reading while the Dr listened to my heart I was so into this book. I read "Anna's Courage" yesterday and became enthralled with the author's writing and Rose Island. Can't wait to read the next book about Bianca. The characters are great and the book brought tears to my eyes in places but it was a story of romance and faith and made you feel like you actually know these people. I certainly recommend this book! It's a great st

What a good story! I adored Keith. This story grabbed my attention and held it thorough out. I didn't want to put it down! The characters and relationships were well developed. The relationship between Keith and Jillian was of course the primary focus but there was also a story with Lyla, her daughter, and people in their lives. These two stories intertwined in a very interesting manner. I look forward to more books by this author.

Wonderful book

I am absolutely in love with Rose Island. Keith and Jillian story really touched me. I've been married for 20 years and almost divorced my husband a few years ago, but through God's love and guidance, we've made it. Seeing Jillian and Keith come back together was great

Great review

I have already read Nick and Anna's story. Keith and Jill's story was Every bit as good. Laughter, tears, and so much more. What a gifted author. I cannot wait to find out what happens with Bianca' s story.
Great read

This book was just as wonderful as the first one in the series. I'm hoping for a third one! ☺

Jillian's Promise is the best book by this author so far. While having a predictable ending, it is still a page turner, cleverly written, and relatable to women everywhere. :)

What would you do if your ex husband was shot a woke with amnesia? This is a great story of love lost and found again, with God as the central figure.

I really loved this book. I grew up in an alcoholic home and it was no fun. I think the alcoholics dilemma was well portrayed, the powerful urge for just one more drink. I also suffered from PTSD and thought was fairly well described but Keith had only one trigger were I had many. Jillian and her sisters were well portrayed. The religion is there but what type is not stated. To any Catholic it is easily decoded as modern RC. I highly recommend this book.

I absolutely loved this book! Krstin has become a favorite Christian author of mine. This book was uplifting, inspiring, and encouraging! The story was authentic and real and made my heart happy. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy Christian fiction! I’ll be starting book 3 of this series next. :)

Great 2nd book

I love any of the books written with the ocean as a backdrop. The characters from book one to two can be stand alone but much more interesting read in order. Makes the stories pop.

Wow! What a beautiful story this was! I cried by the time I've finished it. Kristin definitely knows how to write a heartwarming, realistic story and characters. Really enjoyed it. Just as good as Book one, Anna's Courage. I'm looking forward to reading more of her work!

A beautifully written story of love and faith. This is a great second chance story of a family that belongs together. I loved Jillian's strength as a woman and mother. I loved that Keith was a good man, but real in his struggles and mistakes. Great lessons in this book.

I loved this book! It sucked me in and I read it in a day! I highly recommend it, though I also recommend reading the other books in the series in order! Each book builds on the story of the last, even though the main characters are different for each book.

Entertaining Book

I enjoyed this book as much as I did the first book in Kristin Noel Fischer's Rose Island series. It was a quick, entertaining read with a good faith message, and it kept my interest from cover to cover. This book will not disappoint.
