Reviewed by Ruffina Oserio for Readers' Favorite

Nora’s Promise by Sedona Hutton is a gripping contemporary romance with an intriguing twist, a love story explored between two completely incompatible characters, and it is here that the tension and the steam gets even more irresistible. Nora has just lost her sister, Lynn, and feels that her life has no meaning, a feeling she shared with her sister. Now she is left with her orphaned nephew. Apart from the loss of her sister, there is the breakup with her boyfriend. When Davey Johnson, the handsome NASCAR driver who never wanted his life interrupted by a child, discovers that he has a nine-year-old son, he commits to becoming a good father. But he knows very little about parenting so he asks Nora for help, not knowing that an attraction is about to develop between them that is more irresistible than he never imagined. Two characters with very little or nothing in common. Can they allow the wave of love to carry them off on an adventure or will their differences stand in the way?

Sedona Hutton creates very interesting and elaborately developed characters in Nora and Davey. They are characters with different personalities, a vegan and a spirited young man who wants nothing but his freedom. There is already a complex situation that is deftly explored in the narrative. The story begins with a strong premise. Lynn, Nora’s sister, hasn’t just died, but has also left behind a son. And that is the beginning of Nora's troubles, but things just get worse for her because a boyfriend dumps her. Nora’s Promise is emotionally intense, heartwarming, and crafted to arouse powerful emotions in readers. Your heartbeat will quicken as you explore the hearts of these characters. Nora’s Promise is fast paced and utterly delightful.
