"The Color of a Promise" (Julianne MacLean) ★★★★★ AVAILABLE NOW!

From USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean comes the next instalment in her popular Color of Heaven Series, where people are affected by real life magic and wondrous miracles that change everything they once believed about life and love.

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 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.


"The Color of a Promise" by Julianne MacLean.  I don't know how Ms. MacLean does it, but once again, she has written a tale that was captivating and thought provoking.  She has a knack for making the reader sit back and say, "Hmm, what if?".   The story itself stirs the heart and mind and had me so enthralled, I didn't put it down until it was finished.   Jack, heartbroken after losing the love of his life to his brother, has some very interesting views and thoughts on life.   Jack really grew on me as the story progresses.  Not that I didn't like him to start but I grew to love him by the end.  And Meg is precious.  Together they make a perfect fit.  But the questions abound about Meg and Ms. MacLean certainly draws the reader into wondering about Jack's beliefs about life, both current and previous ones.   The writing is superb and the story flows effortlessly.   Ms. MacLean brings about different perspectives about life and it's meaning.   Having read the previous books in the series, I found that, after finishing each, the story and its characters stay within my mind and heart for a long time.  (note - while I don't think it necessary to read the others first, I highly recommend them).  (received copy for honest review)
