3.5-4 stars for me.
This book held a lot of promise but just didn't quite connect for me. I loved the story of childhood friends who slowly became more, the heartbreak they experience and the hard fought for HEA.

My problem was with the dialogue (internal and spoken) regularly switching between characters without it being clear who was speaking. I also struggled with the writer switching tenses.

Again, overall I enjoyed the story but I wanted more.

This was my first book by RC Stephens. She’s a detailed storyteller. Where Promises Die is a sweet love story although it isn’t an easy journey for either character or them as a couple. This story is full of twists, lies, and secrets. It’s also first love, and second chances, love, and promises.

Eisav, “E” as I call him, is a good guy but his parents only see him as bad. His dad is such a mean and nasty man. Bad news!! Then he met Grace, thankfully they had each other to get through some very difficult years. I love his promises to her especially in the second half of the book, the little notes…..awwww. Bringing them back in the second half really tied it all together nicely. They are so sweet and he means every one of them.

Grace, the poor girl goes through so much in this book. Without Eisav, Greta and even his opportunist brother Jacob (ick), to help her through the tragic events I’m not sure what would have happened to her. I’m glad she had the outlet of painting to help her heal and get through the difficult times.

I enjoyed Eisav and Grace’s story and would love to give it more stars. The story itself was thorough, felt complete, good writing. I loved the intimacy and love between them but the sex scenes didn’t really work for me. I just didn’t feel the chemistry as strongly during the sex scenes as I did during the kissing and sweet moments. I would have been happy with more fade to black or less explicit scenes. It took away from the love story for me.

I think all in all though the ideas and twists in the story were good and I love how she wrapped it all up in the end. I don’t feel like I’m missing any pieces. There were times when I was emotional and even cried a couple of times, for that reason I’m interested in reading another by this author. It really is a sweet story that will touch your heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional and stunning story! 21 February 2017
By Liz Thompson - Published on

What a beautiful story of love and hope that will take you through a roller coaster of emotions. Where Promises Die by R.C. Stephens is so full of angst, you will feel it in your soul. I was literally held captive by this story. Drawn in and terrified at the same time.

Grace finds herself plucked from everything she knows after being orphaned and dropped in the middle of nowhere Iowa. Now she must find a way to fit in a rural and religious town after the tragic loss she suffers. Taken in by the Duncan’s, her world has turned upside down in an instant.

Eisav Duncan has always been the black sheep of the family. He finds it very hard to conform to what is expected of him. Always compared to his twin brother, Jacob, he finds a kindred spirit in Grace when she comes to live with them. But his father warns his sons to stay away from her, however, it is the last thing Eisav wants.

Eisav and Grace find a connection early on. In Eisav she finds someone she can trust in and who slowly brings in the sun again. Eisav is simply taken by Grace. She understands him in a way his family never has and accepts him for who he is. As they spend time together, feelings emerge. But soon obstacles begin to develop that may not be easy to overcome.

But Eisav struggles with the expectations and demands that are placed on him by his very religious family and specifically his father. When things begin to get complicated and difficult, Eisav makes a decision that will alter their lives and hurt the woman he loves. Can he win her back and show her what she truly means to him?

I found this story to be heartbreakingly beautiful. So many secrets and lies impact not only the main characters, but the family as well, that no one is left untouched. The struggles endured would easily break some, but Eisav and Grace have a love that just may conquer all. A stunning story that will consume you.

Where Promises Die by R.C. Stephens was an emotional and stunning 5-star read for me.

Happy reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Roller Coaster Ride but Well Worth the Journey 9 February 2017

This book hits so many emotions on so many levels, I find it hard to pull my thoughts together to tell readers how beautiful this story is. Grace and Eisav's story is as heartbreaking as it is beautiful. The story is full of secrets and lies that impact so many of the characters and complicates lives that should have been left untainted.
Grace loses so much through the course of this story. After losing her mother, her city life is uprooted and she is plunked down in rural Iowa. Keeping silent in her grief, the eleven-year-old only child slips silently into a large family that harbors so many secrets it is hard to figure out who is hiding what. The only person who can reach her is Eisav, one of the twins. A strong friendship develops between the two that over the years turns to love. Forbidden by the father, who hates Eisav the couple struggles until circumstances tear them apart.
This beautifully written story is a unique puzzle of interwoven pieces: part love story, part intrigue, part heartbreak, and part a redemption story. There are so many layers to this book and it is told in both the past and present. The storyline is intricate and the characters well developed. I had difficulty putting this gorgeous story down and it left a book hangover for days.

I really felt for this family. They had some major issues. I did feel disconnected from most of the characters. The only one I did like was Eisav.
