Bestselling author Debbie Macomber continues to delight readers with her heartwarming Heart of Texas series with Return to Promise. Back on familiar ground, Macomber reintroduces us to favorite characters from earlier volumes, including Cal Patterson and his wife, Jane. Married for several years, Jane has severely cut back her medical practice to raise their two small children while Cal continues to ranch. But when Jane and the children take an extended trip to California to nurse her ailing father, Cal becomes the target of an attractive newcomer in town, hot-to-trot Nicole Nelson. Jane returns to Promise as rumors surface about the time Cal spent with Nicole while the cat... uh, Jane... was away. Disagreements and doubts escalate, leading to Jane and Cal's separation, Jane heading back to her parents' home in California with their children. Alone, Cal is forced for the first time in his marriage to think, really think, about what he wants and needs his life to be. The prolific Macomber answers fans' cries for "more, more, more" Promise, Texas, with her true and sometimes painful portrayal of life and love after the initial rush of hormones passes.--Alison TrinkleFrom Publishers Weekly:
Macomber's name sells books, and her newest title doesn't let readers down. Sometimes the best things come in small packages. Such is the case here, as Macomber returns readers to Promise, Tex., a small ranching town filled with loving, friendly people and down-home Texas charm. Cal and Jane Patterson had planned simply to relax, but lately Cal has been yearning for his reckless days riding bulls in the rodeo, and Jane (known as Dr. Texas to Promise's townsfolk) has her hands full caring for their two children and working at the medical clinic part time. When Jane's dad becomes ill, she packs up the kids and flies home to Southern California, leaving Cal to fend for himself. Jane's absence is the opening that beautiful, restless (and clich?d) vixen Nicole Nelson has been waiting for; she's been attracted to Cal for years and has returned to PromiseAafter an absence of many yearsAwith the single-minded aim to destroy Cal's marriage and snag Cal for herself. Cal isn't buying into Nicole's scheme, but a couple of innocent encounters with Nicole has tongues wagging and stirs up plenty of unrest between Jane and Cal. Although the extent of those problems strains credulity, Macomber touches on incidences of insecurity and poor communication that nearly every couple faces at one time or another.
