So often, the world just seems to be so hard. These stories are always the perfect softening balm to my heart. This may be my favorite of the First Street Church romances that I have read so far, including those brought into this world from other authors.

The book didn’t wow me as much as book 1 in the series, however the plot was easy to follow, the characters well drawn and both progressed at a good speed.
Whilst expecting a happy ending, and enjoying the Christian content the only slight twist was the reaction of Jeff’s Dad when confronted about his son’s decision. Everything was pleasant and fairly predictable.
The turmoil expected with each confrontation ...more
Love’s Promise by Melissa Storm is the second book in The First Street Church Romance series. This book is not a standalone and must be read in order. Reason being you will be lost in the storyline and the characters.
I am a huge Melissa Storm fan but none of her books have touched me more than Kristina Rose’s story has. Even though this was Melissa’s story about her own journey written through Kri ...more

I bought this book when it was released but I never got around to reading it until now. I think God was waiting until I needed to know this story. Recently a friend had gastric surgery, intellectually I understood what she had done but not what it really meant for her and her future. This story has helped me understand this process. This is a wonderful HEA but the emotional and spiritual tie in was amazing or 'awesome', as Jeffery kept saying. Looking forward to reading more stori ...more
My journey was like hers but over a period 40 plus years and over 100 pounds.
I have done the yo-yo, dieting, the exercise losing 50lbs so many times I lost count.
The weight is still there, the low self-esteem but no more yo-yo diets.
I need to learn to lean on God and let him take over.
This story gives me hope that it is even possible at 70.
Thank you, Melissa, for writing the book that I hope will change my life.
Wonderful story! This is one of the original 4 books that began the popular series. This is a sweet and clean romance with strong faith elements. I can see why Amazon chose this as one of their Kindle Worlds. I have other of this author’s works and this is the high quality that I have come to expect from her. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to share my honest review.
Love’s Promise is captivating and challenging to put down. I love the way each character faces reality and truth. How the goodness, kindness and truly caring for one another reminds one what life is truly about! Thank you, Melissa and I can’t wait to start Book 3 “Love’s Prophet”!

Writing is Melissa's way of showing her daughter just how beautiful life can be, when you pay attention to the everyday wonders that surround us.
Melissa loves books so mu...more
