Review on Cross My Heart
'Cross My Heart is my first Pamela Cook book and I loved it. I was hooked on this book right from the start and finished it within a day. In reading the blurb I thought I had the whole story figured out before I even started but this book was so much more.' The Lucky Find Book Club
'This latest novel from Pamela Cook is a real page-turner packed with emotion from start to finish, a haunting story about the power of a promise to change the course of lives.' Book Relish
'This is one of those rare books that draws you in from the first page. I was completely engrossed in this book and I didn't want to put it down.The story takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster, where you laugh and cry and laugh again. Very few books are able to walk to line between heart-warming and heart-breaking, but Cross My Heart perfectly captures both of these feelings.' Gem's Book Nook
