Early Review: Crossing Promises (Cross Creek #3) by Kimberly Kincaid

Feb 26, 2018

For Owen Cross, the only thing that matters more than family is farming. As the oldest Cross brother, the land is his legacy, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make Cross Creek a success—including hiring local widow Cate McAllister to manage the bookkeeping tasks that are growing in his office like weeds. Cate’s as pragmatic as she is pretty, and she rattles his hard-fought composure at every turn.

Cate had known a lot of things about her husband before he died three years ago in a car accident, but how much debt he’d gotten them into wasn’t one of them. She needs her job at Cross Creek, even if her boss is both gruff and gorgeous. But Owen’s a family man, through and through, and the last thing Cate is interested in is anything—or anyone—with strings attached.

As Owen and Cate join forces to right the farm, they discover there’s more to the other than the surfaces shows, and that passion can be found in unexpected places. Can Cate heal from the loss of one family to gain the love of her life? Or will the past prove too much for the promise of the future?

4-4.5 STARS

Oh how I loved this book! This book features Owen Cross, the oldest of three brothers who run Cross Creek Farms along with their father. This is Owen’s legacy and he couldn’t imagine doing anything else other than taking care of the farm. But lately he’s been feeling like there’s something missing. His brothers have found love, but he’s never given himself time to find it for himself. But that all changes when Cate McAllister comes into his life.

Cate lost her husband daughter in a tragic car accident 3 years ago. Everyone in town treats her differently since then and she just wants everyone to see her as a regular person. She’s been working two jobs to support herself after she learned her husband had put them in major debt. Owen ends up hiring her to help clean up the mess of paperwork and bookkeeping for the farm.

Cate never sees herself getting close to someone again, but the more time her and Owen spend together, those lines are starting to blur. Owen is understanding, supportive and honest and even with his gruff personality, he gets her. Owen can see a future with Cate and a part of his family. Now if he can just get her to see that she deserves to be happy and have love in her life…

Crossing Promises is full of heat, heartfelt and emotional moments and a few surprises. A great addition to this series! I love the family bond between the Cross family too!
