Promises to Keep and Giveaway!

Hi all!

Help me congratulate my dear friend, Claire Yezbak Fadden, on her new release – PROMISES TO KEEP, book 2 of the Begin Again series! It’s women’s fiction (cozy mystery) and for those romance lovers – there’s a little romance too! On top of that, there’s a gift card giveaway, but before we discuss that, check out PROMISES TO KEEP.

Love, Secrets, and Lies…

Kate Jameson married the man of her dreams. Her real-life hero. A man who wouldn’t abandon her the way her father had. Or so she thought. Weeks after their son’s birth, her husband is suddenly pulled away for a business trip that takes him out of the country. But something isn’t right. His truths aren’t adding up. Kate digs into his past, determined to learn what he’s hiding. But unraveling this endless mystery draws her into a maze of lies, family secrets and deadly consequences.

For twenty years, undercover CIA agent Eric Wiley lived for one reason—to avenge his parents’ brutal deaths. Until he marries Kate. Eric promises her a life of love and commitment, but competing promises constantly collide, offering him little chance of keeping either. When an informant lures him to Mexico, Eric thinks his goal of apprehending an elusive killer will be realized. Leaving his family for a few short days, weeks at the most, would be worth the prize.

Can this final mission bring closure and allow Eric to be the husband Kate deserves and the father he yearns to be? Or will their destiny remain mired in the secrets of his past, leaving them powerless to embrace their present?


He walked to where she stood and kissed her cheek before embracing his wife and son in a group hug. “I feel damn lucky this emergency didn’t come up sooner.”

He brushed her arm, noting the goosebumps prickling against his palm.

“If that call had come before Benjamin’s birth, would you have left and missed seeing your son be born?” she asked.

How could he answer without adding more lies to the growing mountain of falsehoods he’d already fabricated? As far as she knew, he was committed to his profession as an importer for his parents’ chain of discount stores. The success of his mission—and possibly his safety—depended on her believing that version.

“Of course not.” Eric told her what she wanted to hear.

Smoke screens and twisting reality to suit his immediate goal had served him well, not just in his professional life, but in his married life, too. Sadly, he’d become pretty good at spinning the truth to where his story held little or no facts.
