McConnell is able to describe her characters and situations in such vivid details, she puts the reader, in the story. Her plot twist kept me on the edge of my seat and my pages turning. I started reading this book midevening and ended up reading it well into early morning, only putting it down when my eyes started to blur. I think McConnell is a very talented author.
My reason for only four stars, at times the story was confusing. It jumped back and forth from present day to the past. It also had where one of the main characters was writing a book, even though the type was different, early in the book, I had trouble keeping the straight between the two. This doesn't distract enough from the book to make the story any less enjoyable.
I give Promises in the Dark 4 stars
