The town of Promise, Texas, is a good place to live, to raise a family, to spend the rest of your days with the person you love.

Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane, also known as Dr. Texas, certainly think so. The last thing they expect is a threat to their marriage. But in September, disagreements begin to escalate, with the help of an attractive young woman who's got her eye on Cal.

After months of emotional upheaval brought on by doubts about their marriage, the two separate, and Jane returns to her childhood home in California, taking their children.

Cal, now alone on his ranch, is forced to confront what he really wants in his life, what he needs. Jane is confronting the same questions.

    " another quick, easy and fun winter read.... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alicia | 2/6/2014

    " I tried twice before I gave up on this book. I found the plot too predictable and not at all what I was hoping for. It's a shame because I was really hoping this would be another good read by Macomber. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 1/29/2014

    " Cute stories. Neither where overwhelmingly Christmas-y, but still fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Simon-felix | 1/26/2014

    " I loved both stories in this book. The first one, "Return to Promise," shows the struggle between a married couple and a woman who is trying to seduce the husband. Although I enjoyed this story, The second one "Mail-Order-Bride," was the better of the two. I enjoyed everything about it. I loved how the relationship grew between the two main characters, even though the woman was not aware of the marriage because of what her aunts did. "

    " I enjoyed reading this book. It left me with the good heart feeling "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 1/13/2014

    " The first story was pretty amusing (way to make something out of nothing!) but the second one's premise was so off-putting that I could not finish it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 1/8/2014

    " I am on this light read kick...just chillin...:) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mimi | 12/24/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beverley | 12/21/2013

    " Typical Debbie Macomber book, fluffy feel good story. What I enjoyed about this book was that it consisted of two short stories with interesting characters and fun stories. For fans of Debbie Macomber who want something fast to read, this is the book to grab. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 12/10/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurie | 11/13/2013

    " This is actually two books in one, each a Christmas/love story about marriages facing trials. Light reads, the stories were entertaining and satisfying. I would recommend this to someone looking for a pleasant diversion. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 11/11/2013

    " I really like DM's style of writing. She is a good storyteller but the conflicts and jealousies were so contrived that I was not sure I wanted to continue - Thank goodness for happy endings! "

    " I've read the whole book, both stories before but at the moment, just rereading "Mail-Order Bride". Macomber does Alaskan romances well. If you like her Midnight Sons series, you'll like this. "
