PROMISES TO KEEP
PROMISES TO KEEP (3) by Linda Hudson-Smith: The well-described exotic locales and the redemption of a torn relationship are the strengths of this story. The characters, however, do not act as their lifestyles and professions suggest that they should. Courtney Campbell owns an event-planning business. When moviemaker Darius Fairfax seeks her help in planning a surprise engagement reception he doesn’t reveal his true relationship to the bride. Instead of asking who the to-be-wed couple is, Courtney comes to an incorrect conclusion, causing herself heartache and grief when she falls for Darius. Though he cares for Courtney, Darius doesn’t reveal the truth until the party. When Courtney flees town, Darius follows to repair the damage that he’s done to a relationship that they both desire.
