The Color of Promise by Julianne MacLean - A Reader's Opinion



A Reader's Opinion

Intense and dramatic!


I love Julianne MacLean’s books and style of writing. She is a talented author who writes stories filled with strong characters and beautiful emotions. She is also the author of great historical romances set in the Regency era, and Highlanders adventures. Be sure to read her whole series,The Color of Heaven! Let yourself be swept away by Ms. MacLean's new novelThe Color of a Promise! Once again, she really sent me on a roller coaster ride of emotions!


In this 11th installment of the Color series we learn more about Jack Peterson, who we met in the 10th book,The Color of Forever. This time, it's his own journey with Meg Andrews in a heart-rending and complex love story. It's also about drama, soul searching and introspection. Jack leaves the U.S. to become a foreign correspondent in the Middle East, when a roadside bomb forces him to return home to recover from his wounds. But when a plane explodes in the sky over his summer house, his life will forever change. Meg grew up with a fear of flying, but now she is an obsessed airline crash investigator. Jack and Meg are thrown together after this plane crash.


Ms. MacLean's entire series is a must to read! She never disappoints me.

Book Description

Having spent a lifetime in competition with his older brother Aaron--who always seemed to get the girl--Jack Peterson leaves the U.S. to become a foreign correspondent in the Middle East. When a roadside bomb forces him to return home to recover from his wounds, he quickly becomes the most celebrated journalist on television, and is awarded his own prime time news program. Now, wealthy and successful beyond his wildest dreams, Jack believes he has finally found where he is meant to be. But when a giant commercial airliner explodes in the sky over his summer house in Cape Elizabeth, all hell breaks loose as the wreckage crashes to the ground. He has no idea that his life is about to take another astonishing turn...

Meg Andrews grew up with a fear of flying, but when it meant she wouldn't be able to visit her boyfriend on the opposite side of the country, she confronted her fear head-on and earned her pilot's license. Now, a decade later, she is a respected airline crash investigator, passionate about her work, to the point of obsession. When she arrives in the picturesque seaside community of Cape Elizabeth to investigate a massive airline disaster, she meets the famous and charismatic Jack Peterson, who has his own personal fascination with plane crashes.As the investigation intensifies, Meg and Jack feel a powerful, inexplicable connection to each other. Soon, they realize that the truth behind the crash--and the mystery of their connection--can only be discovered through the strength of the human spirit, the timeless bonds of family, and the gift of second chances.
