Rating: 3.5/5.0

“Tangled Promises” is a sweet small-town romantic drama.

Read full review in the 2020 September issue of InD'tale Magazine.

This is a superb book for this time period. A reader will simply lose themselves and forget the day to day troubles when reading this. The characters of Jake and Melody really carry this book. You can see that despite the roadblocks that exist, there is chemistry there.

The unique use of POV stood out to this reader. The book starts out flowing through excitement in third-person. Then suddenly, the reader is thrust into first-person POV and that of a nut. Unexpected but that could be how you defi

This was an enjoyable story. Full of interesting characters. Characters you can picture.

Romance is not really one of my favorite genres. But this story kept my interest from start to finish. I think there are two basic reasons. One is that it isn’t just a romance. It has some suspense which makes it seem to have more depth. 2ndly, it’s well-written. It reads amazingly fast.

Don’t get me wrong. This is your handsome man, sad woman trying to make it on her own, book. But there’s a lot more to it th

This was a well told story with a lot going on and a twist that will surprise you. It felt a little slow at times even though there seems to be problem after problem happening. Jake and Melody are both likable characters with believability. I live in a small town in Arkansas (not Rock Ledge-if it exists) and can say from experience, this author has life in a small town down perfectly. Everyone knows everyone and their business.

Jake Bennett, new Sheriff in Rock Ledge, lost his job as a detective with Chicago P.D. due the loss of a witness and unfair media coverage. Things are looking up when he meets Melody Rose, owner of the Tangled Rose Café. Melody’s husband was killed by a veteran with PTSD upon his return from military service and she has an aversion to guns. The peace of Rock Ledge is shattered by a commuter plane crash, a missing prisoner and several acts of vandalism. An intriguing story with romance and a host ...more

Tangled Promises starts off with a bang than slow but believe me do not give up on this book because it is worth the read! The characters are likable and readers will be able to connect with them. Linda Trout keeps a even tone to the story as the mystery takes off the roller coast beginning readers high high and low low. The adventure will keep readers hooked.

Thank you to Netgalley for a copy of Linda Trout Tangled Promise.

I liked this book but I found it to be a bit perplexing. It starts out with a horrific plane crash and then nothing else it really said about it🤷🏼‍♀️. There is really no tie into the rest of the story. Why was it even put in? Maybe I missed something but I really was excited to read how this airplane crash was going to play out and got....nothing.
The main character, Melody, has a best friend, Randi....but, again there wasn’t much substance going on with this wonderful, terrific friendship🤷🏼‍♀️

What a twist

This was a very good book with an ending that knocked my socks off. I didn't see it coming. A mysterious romance that is well worth your time to read.

A retired accountant, Linda Trout is a true romantic at heart, living with her real life hero and an ever growing population of cats in northeastern Oklahoma. They own ten acres of semi-wooded land, where the “wild” keeps creeping forward at a pace faster than they can keep up with. Getting lost in a good book is one of her favorite pastimes as well as riding alongside her hubby on their Harley’s.
