Island of Promise

Front CoverPromises are like castles made of sand…

Kayla believed Zach was the man to repair her heart and her family. Zach believed Kayla was the woman to repair his soul. But Zach’s secrets are too big, his guilt too heavy, for him to keep his promises. He needs to get out now before he causes Kayla more heartache than the young widow has already endured.

There’s nothing like a crisis to bring two people together, and suddenly, the idyllic island off the Mid-Atlantic coast has those in spades. A serial killer has found his way into paradise, bringing Zach’s former life close to home, and Kayla is facing a health scare that is every woman’s worse nightmare. Will the tragedies they face pull them apart or bring them closer to fulfilling their promises to each other?

“The second book in Amy Schisler’s Chincoteague Island Series, the Island of Promise does not disappoint. It’s a beautiful story of love, grief, and new beginnings. The characters in this book feel like family to me. The book starts just a few months after Island of Miracles left off. Zach and Kayla love one another, but Zach’s guilt over his career leaves him believing that Kayla wouldn’t be able to love him. Add to that a medical crisis and a killer in the area, and you have a novel that you won’t be able to put down. This book and series has left me longing for more.” —Anne Novey, Goodreads, 2018

“I love Amy Schisler’s books! This is the third book of hers that I’ve read. Like the others, this is a story that evoked so many emotions for me. I cried tears of both sadness and joy while reading it. I like a love story like this one that explores the vulnerabilities and fears that some people must overcome before they can open their hearts to others. I also like the Christian values that weave their way throughout Amy’s stories without seeming preachy. I read this book in a day and will definitely read her next one!” —Mitzi Mead, Goodreads, 2018

4.0 out of 5.0 stars

“This is a contemporary romance that is intertwined with mystery as well as family dynamics. There are many threads that are woven together that at times makes the story seem a bit disconnected, however the heightening sense of panic and raw feelings in the plot ultimately keeps the reader engaged. The characters are well developed and have depth, and the story moves along at a good pace. Overall, this book is a winner that fans of mystery and romance will enjoy while elevating anticipation for the third book of the trilogy.” —Joan M. McNamara, Goodreads, 2018

“I thoroughly enjoyed this second installment of Amy Schisler’s trip through the beauty of the east coast waters. Coming from a family filled with men in the Coast Guard and Police, both of these stories touched me very close to home. There is suspense that for me included kleenex, yet a tender love story that flows so beautifully from page to page. I committed to reading it from start to finish because I felt it deserved my full attention rather than pick it up and put it down over the course of a week. The descriptions of the places makes me want to explore them personally. I am excited to see what happens in the next installment. I felt like I truly knew the characters and could identify with them in many ways. Nice job Amy!” —Veronica, Goodreads, 2018
