Richard Paul Evans always tugs at my heart strings. Promise Me is an easy to read story that will take your mind off of all of your own problems for a few hours. First off, this is not a typical story from this author and you will need to believe in a bit of holiday magic for it to all make sense. Beth, is at wit's end trying to deal with a relationship that is on the rocks, a sick child and work issues. When Beth meets Matthew, he seems like the perfect answer to all of her problems. There is more to this man than meets the eye. There are a few weird plot twists and I guess in the end, I still am not sure what Matthew is, you will just have to read it yourself to figure that one out.
