The Promise

My Thoughts:  
Wow I hate writing reviews like these.  You have two very talented authors, both of whom I enjoy reading.  Loved Dan's first series, could not wait until they each released.  Enjoyed Gary's non-fiction books, have several of them in my personal library.  So you would think it is a match made in heaven as far as a story would go, but I just did not find that.  I struggled through this book.  I did not enjoy it.  Their styles did not mesh in my opinion.  While they are each great writers, they just don't click as a team.  Because they are each great writers and you see those skills in the book, I give this a 3.5 star rating.  This book was provided by Revell for review purposes only. No payment was received for this review.

Book Description:
For the last five months, Tom Anderson has been without a job, a fact he's been hiding from his wife Jean--and everyone else. He leaves each morning, pretending nothing has changed, and spends his disheartening day rotating through two coffee shops and the library, using their wi-fi to search for a job on the internet. The stress of keeping this secret is beginning to put serious strain on his marriage and it looks like the legacy that began with his father is still at work, slowly destroying the bond between Tom and Jean. Can their mutual trust--and love--be restored?

Combining the literary talents of Dan Walsh and the relationship expertise of Gary Smalley, The Restoration Series pulls back the curtain of a family that has laid their foundation on shifting sand, but is slowly rediscovering genuine love and the power of forgiveness.
