The Promise of Breeze Hill, Book Review

The Promise of Breeze Hill A Natchez Trace Novel by Pam Hillman

Natchez, MS; 1791
Anxious for his brothers to join him on the rugged frontier along the Mississippi River, Connor O’Shea has no choice but to indenture himself as a carpenter in exchange for their passage from Ireland. But when he’s sold to Isabella Bartholomew of Breeze Hill Plantation, Connor fears he’ll repeat past mistakes and vows not to be tempted by the lovely lady.

The responsibilities of running Breeze Hill have fallen on Isabella’s shoulders after her brother was found dead in the swamps along the Natchez Trace and a suspicious fire devastated their crops, almost destroyed their home, and left her father seriously injured. Even with Connor’s help, Isabella fears she’ll lose her family’s plantation. Despite her growing feelings for the handsome Irish carpenter, she seriously considers accepting her wealthy and influential neighbor’s proposal of marriage.

Soon, though, Connor realizes someone is out to eliminate the Bartholomew family. Can he set aside his own feelings to keep Isabella safe?

My Thoughts: I received this book from the publisher to review and am so happy that I did. The 1700’s setting is amazingly well done and so realistic. Of course there is the strong female lead and the dashing romantic interest that is so fun in stories. The plot, was even better than I thought it would be. I found The Promise of Breeze Hill to be mesmerizing and I had to read until the end. When I wasn’t reading about the book I spent time thinking about how the story would progress! This book is a great read, not just a pretty cover.
