I was delighted to read “The Promise of Breeze Hill” by Pam Hillman. I loved this book because of the sweet romance, the mysteries surrounding the Natchez Trace, the intrigue and the way that life during that time period was described.
An indentured carpenter, Connor O’Shea is chosen by Isabella Bartholomew for his help on her father’s plantation. There have been many tragedies in the Bartholomew family of late and at the beginning of the book, no one suspected that someone wanted the Bartholomews out. The death of the son and heir, the fiery destruction of part of the plantation house, missing stock, mysterious trespassers, and other incidents really do not come to the surface until Connor comes to the plantation. His presence puts a distinct kink in the works for the one person wanting to see the demise of Breeze Hill.
I loved the book and its fast pace kept me reading long into the night until I was finished. I thought the characters in the story were well-described and their actions fit their characters. I also like a good romance and this was that. Well worth my time reading this book.
I received a complimentary print copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers and was under no obligation to post a review.
