Before Madeleine Kimble's mountaineer husband, Aidan, climbs Mount McKinley's south face, he makes her a solemn vow: I will come back to you. But late one night, Maddie gets the devastating news that Aidan has died in an avalanche, leaving her to care for their son--a small boy with a very big secret. The call comes from J.C., Aidan's best friend and fellow climber, whose grief is seasoned with survivor's guilt and something more. J.C. has loved Maddie for years, but he never wanted his chance with her to come at so terrible a cost. Across the country, Nicholas Sullivan wakes from a motorcycle crash with his memory wiped clean. Yet his dreams are haunted by visions of a mysterious woman and a young boy, neither of whom he has ever met. Convinced that these strangers hold the answers he seeks, Nicholas leaves everything behind to find them. What he discovers will require a leap of faith that will change all of their lives forever.… (mais)

An average romance story - not my usual genre so I may not be the best to review it, but I found the writing fairly ordinary. The only twist in the story is that after the husband dies, he finds a way to come back to the wife and keep his promise "to return" - which gives her some closure. A quick read. Satisfies "book I already own" category for 2015 reading challenge. ( )

This book had potential but turned out to be disappointing. The story line was just too far-fetched to be believable. The characters lacked depth and the authors attempts at humor fell flat over and over. ( )

Loved the book. Could not put it down. Will read this author's next book. Loved the characters. A must read!!!

I liked the author's writing style, but Maddie's passivity got on my nerves after a while and I didn't like the coy-yet-graphic sex scenes, although this does seem to be standard for chick-lit books. And in other places the prose seemed overblown. Case in point: "He licked first water and then sweat from my skin, drinking us in, and I felt my clenched heart reveal itself like a moonflower, that pale mysterious bloom that opens only at night."

Just not my cup of tea. ( )

That cover! That Blurb! That Title! OMG. What is there not to love about sitting down to read this book?

While I'm a veteran of these types of novels...I really haven't read one yet where one of the main characters dies on a mountain during an avalanche. It was heartbreaking to see Aidan die like that while Madeline tries to reclaim her life, sanity and heart afterwards.

Although a bit predictable...there was something comforting and pleasant about reading a book like this. You know what to expect. Tears, laughter, sadness and hope. It's all present in this novel by Colin and again, I'm impressed by her way with words.

I can't wait to read more for Colin! ( )
