Lurrrrvvveed it!It was a wonderful sweet emotional story,it made me smile,cry and angry,loved each n every character.Adored Fritz so much.Liked how Joe-Catherine's love blossomed as the story progressed.I was angry at Joe cause he knew what is Margaret trying to do-i completely understand his decision not to tell Michael anything but when she started using Della and it broke his family he should have confided in Michael.Michael he should be acting maturely instead of taking sides and help Joe to [...]
Lovely and heart-rending story about two people who lost love and found it again. Joe is widower and father of three, still very much grieving his beloved wife and struggling to connect emotionally with his youngest child, precocious little Fritz, who is wise beyond her seven years and yet achingly so sensitive and with fears and needs that she finds hard to articulate to him. Catherine is a divorcee coming to terms with her failure to give her ex-husband the child they both crave. I love, that [...]
A really good story about people finding happiness unexpectedly. As usual with Cheryl Reavis we have a finely woven plot linking characters in the most unusual and heartwarming ways. This is a romantic story but also a story about a family or forming new families.The characters are wonderfully layered and complex: Joe and Catherine, both with emotional scars and a lot of baggage, Joe’s children, and the other secondary characters. The dialogue is vivid – although sometimes Fritz’s utteranc [...]
This book - Promise Me a Rainbow, by Cheryl Reavis - is just so enjoyable and addicting that I didn't want it to end. It's a romance, but it isn't an easy romance. I felt like I knew the people in it, and that's what makes a good book good, right?Set in Wilmington, North Carolina, Promise Me a Rainbow is about Catherine Holben, a recently divorced 32-year-old teacher whose students are pregnant girls whom the school system wants to keep in school, and Joe D'Amaro, a 38-year-old widower with thre [...]
4.5 StarsI’ve read a few of Ms. Reavis’ Harlequin Westerns and enjoyed them so when this came up somewhere as a special price, I decided to give it a try. Catherine Holben, our heroine and Joe D’Amaro, our hero, meet when she buys some gnomes she has had her eye on at a second hand store. The owner takes down her name as she has a feeling the family that brought in the gnomes may want them back – they were selling them for financial reasons only. Catherine does indeed hear from the famil [...]
Promise me a rainbow is a very precious book I got from Netgalley. Well, I hate the book cover (the one with father-daughter pic), I won't pick it up if I saw something like this in store. Lucky me, it turned out to become a beautiful reading. Hope the next publisher would consider a better cover for it.It's not really my kind of book recently, but I really love it. It's a really beautiful story about family. I'm used to read a family issues on YA book which of course would tell the story from t [...]
5 STARS Well I laughed,cried and smile through the book. Thier are some sex scenes & swearwords in the book so beware. Catherine Holben saw gnome in the front of a window at a store by her bus stop. She ended up buying it. The store owner asked if she could give the man who had to sell them her address. He did not want to part with them but he needed the money. Catherine agreed. Catherine is a nurse who is teaching pregnant girls how to take care of thier baby now and when they came in the f [...]
This wasn't a bad book by any means but it felt very heavy. For a romance it seemed utterly lacking in real joy until the very end.The tone of the book is set somewhat by Catherine. She lives a half-life, sad about her inability to have children and abandoned by her husband because of it.And then there is Joe and his youngest daughter Fitz. Joe's wife was killed in a car accident and his youngest daughter, seven-year-old Fitz is having emotional issues because of it.Joe, Fitz and Catherine's liv [...]
When I first saw Promise Me a Rainbow on NetGalley, I was a little hesitant to request it. I haven’t been reading much adult contemporary lately, but this sounded like something I would enjoy, and I did! Catherine Holben is awesome. Her ex husband Jonathan is a complete douche bag though. You see, he leaves because she can’t have children. Let me tell you from experience, when I was at a point in my life where I thought I might not be able to have a healthy child, it nearly destroyed me. Had [...]
Review written for books-n-kissesI enjoyed this book more than I thought I would when I picked it. The writing eventually was good, but in the beginning it was not written the way a normal conversation takes place but that seemed to change as the book went on and the dialogue became more real. The interesting thing about this book is Joe is a single father of three who manages to get by by the skin of his teeth. He is not rich nor has some fancy job, he is a man trying to make life work out as b [...]
So this book was just bizarre. So little of characters' actions or words rang true; the doctor's dialogue when Sasha gave birth was a prime example. The banter was clearly intended as jaunty, world-weary, but instead struck me as beyond strange and stilted. Much of Catherine's dialogue with Pam also rang false. Catherine's job per se was never clear to me- she was there in the class as emergency medical personnel? A (poor) babysitter? Another teacher? When one of her students informs her that a [...]
Yang saya suka dari buku ini :1. Catherine, dengan sikapnya yang tegas dan tidak sudi diinjak dan diremehkan sehingga ia bisa bertahan menghadapi sikap mantan suaminya yang sok ramah dan tidak jatuh pada kubang kedukaan yang terus-menerus. Atau wanita desperate yang terus mendambakan cinta mantan suaminya.2. Fritz. Si gadis kecil serius yang mengawasi segala sesuatu disekitarnya dan tidak melewatkan apapun juga. Ah, kalo bisa ntar pengen punya anak yang sifatnya seperti Fritz ini 3. Kisah cin [...]
Enjoyable, but not a re-read. Quite like the hero, Joen't mind the cranky guy that will take care of you. Struck me as quite realistic (which maybe isn't good in a romance?). I liked Catherine through his eyesought she was a bit wet in her own thoughts.Enjoyed her pregnant students, and the plot-moppet of Fritz. Thought the storyline of the sister in law who wants Joe and turns his oldest daughter against him a bit of a pain.Biggest problem was that Catherine gets pregnant. That's the whole reas [...]
Every time I read one of Cheryl Reavis' books, I am both eager to dig in and worried that it can't possibly be as good as the last one was. But I shouldn't worry. Promise Me A Rainbow touches the heart like so many books just can't. I love Joe and I wish he lived in my neighborhood. I'd like to give that selfish troubled daughter of his a good talking to. I loved Michael too, even when Joe felt he was letting him down, he struck me as a man in a hard place to be and doing the best he could. Keep [...]
3.5Good story with a variety of characters. Joe's daughter Fritz was priceless. Joe was great as a father, but as a person he could have had a bit more depth. Catherine was pretty selfless and definitely deserved the gift she got. There was both a great deal of happiness & sadness though out the story.Originally written in 1990 so no mention of cell phones. That just always makes me giggle to think of life w/o them, yes they were around then just huge, bulky and few & far between.
I adored Fritz and sympathized with Della. While I liked the way the romance blossomed between the main characters, I thought it odd that they thought they were being responsible by not having sex in the house with the children but considered it perfectly appropriate to have sex before marriage if the kids weren't around.
This one gets five stars because the entire time I was reading it, I kind of had a sense of deja vu. Then I realized, one of the books that I have written (but not finished) have the same main characters, Joe and Catherine! (Not sure why it took me so long to figure it out!) I thought the story was cute and the characters felt real to me.
This was a strange book. The characters made no sense half the time and the heroine's love interested was a major jerk. The romance came out of left field and the proclamations of love felt off and not realistic.The ending is abrupt and many things seems left unresolved. One romance I wouldn't recommend because it left me rolling my eyes and going, WTF did I just read?
Beautiful story by ReavisThis is the first book I had read by this author, it won't be my last. The creation of the main characters was fantastic. As the story progresses, the reader becomes increasingly interested in the outcome. Great read.
can they make it work, she meets a widower with 3 kids, so her husband left her, she can't have kids, tear jerker

A simple little, fast and easy reading love story. A story of a motherless child and a childless mother combined with a romance.
I really liked this storyline. Like most romances it is a bit predictable, but the story makes up for the predictability.
I LOVED IT! I didn't want it to end :(
AweI loved it. What a great, sweet story.
