Romance Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway: Promises Under the Peach Tree by Joanne Rock

The trouble with Heartache

Nina Spencer swore she was done with Heartache, Tennessee, when she left the town—and her sexy ex, Mack—in her rearview mirror. But when her bakery business is rocked by scandal, she needs a place to regroup. What she doesn't need is Mack Finley reminding her of peach-flavored kisses and the hold he still has on her.

Mack never forgot Nina—not that he didn't try. Yet between caring for his family and organizing the annual Harvest Fest, he's overwhelmed and he needs Nina's help. They can work together without getting swept up in memories and the rush of brand-new passion…right?

Three-time RITA nominee Joanne Rock turned a passion for writing into a career when imaginary characters kept her awake at night, demanding she tell their stories. The author of over sixty romances in a variety of
subgenres, she enjoys writing contemporary romance as well as medieval historicals in addition to her Young Adult stories as J.K. Rock co-authored with her sister-in-law, Karen. A former Golden Heart recipient, Joanne has won numerous awards for her stories. Her work has been reprinted in twenty-six countries and translated into twenty languages. She is a popular speaker at writing conferences and recently released her first non-fiction book called SELF PROMOTION SIMPLIFIED to help self-published and traditionally published authors with their marketing efforts. Joanne has a Bachelors degree in Communications, and an M.A. in English Literature from the University of Louisville. She has taught at the college level and enjoys mentoring aspiring writers and speaking to high school writing / reading groups.

What a beautiful and sweet romance by Ms. Joanne Rock!  I have read a few of her books, and one of the things that I love about her writing, is her ability to make the characters touch you deeply.  It's so easy to become emotionally invested in her characters, and once you do, every feeling they have, you feel it too.  It's incredible!  In Promises Under the Peach Tree, it's Nina and Mack that will have you hooked. 

Life for Nina is complicated.  She's been hurt... bad.  And when she returns to her hometown, one of the last things she expects is to run in to her old flame, Mack.  The very charming (and handsome) Mack stirs up old feelings in Nina, and the two of them begin to reconnect.  But Nina and Mack have a rough road ahead of them as they try and work through issues to find out if what they have is enough to take them to their very own happily ever after. 

The chemistry between Nina and Mack is astounding.  Even with all of their issues, from the moment they reconnect with one another, you just KNOW they were made for each other.  Their romance is extremely charming, and it has a perfect backdrop in Heartache, TN. 

If you've never read a book by Ms. Rock, you must.  She's a very talented author that I truly enjoy reading.  Promises Under the Peach Tree is a great addition to any library, and a perfect, warm your heart read for the end of summer!
