The Book Corner…6/6/19 Joan Johnston’s Sullivan’s Promise
Sullivan’s Promise: A Bitter Creek novel by Joan Johnston. Apr. 30, 2019. Random House.
Amazon’s blurb: Two unforgiving lovers reunite for the sake
of their child in this fiery contemporary romance from the New York
Times bestselling author of Surrender.
Facing the unexpected consequences of a life-altering night of passion with a cowboy she met in a Jackson Hole bar, and with her life committed to protecting endangered species, Victoria Grayhawk does what she believes is the right thing. She hunts down the cowboy, seeking his agreement that their baby should be adopted by a loving family.
Montana rancher Ryan Sullivan has no intention of giving away his own flesh and blood, and takes their son to raise himself. When Vick realizes what a horrible mistake she’s made, and wants back into their child’s life, Rye remains inflexible—because once trust is lost there are no second chances—until an attack by one of the grizzlies Vick has spent her life protecting changes everything and Rye learns that sometimes love can heal all wounds.
“A riveting story of love, passion, and forgiveness.”—Fresh Fiction

My Review: I’ve read one previous book in this series. Although you don’t need to read the others to follow this one, I found the various romances in the book and switching of povs hard to stay interested in. I also thought things could be cleared up in Sullivan’s and Vick/Lexie’s case by communication. I didn’t hate the book, just wished it’d focused more on the two of them instead of four or five different romances at the same time.
