[Review] Promised Souls by Sandra J. Jackson



 

Just as Krista’s summer plans are finalized, she is suddenly plagued by strange dreams and intense feelings of déjà vu. Feeling as though she’s losing her mind, she visits a psychic medium, only to feel more confused. When Krista arrives in England, her dreams persist, and she finds herself at the doorstep of another psychic; she needs clarity. Finally, the words she was afraid to say out loud, are spoken. Now Krista has to figure out what it all means. Promised Soul is the story of the past, the present, and the future of two souls that have been bound together by eternal and transcending love.

 
** Book received in exchange for an honest review **
With this book, you find yourself addicted more and more with each chapter. Krista is recently out of a relationship and looking forward to her upcoming trip to London for the summer. She's drawn to go there and so she plans her trip through a tour guide company to see the most of the areas she'd like.
Upon arriving she is escorted by Peter, a friend of her actual guide that has had to cover because Aaron (her tour guide) is currently visiting his sick mother, Kate.
Peter takes her to Bourton-on-the-Water where she will stay in an appartment owned by Jane, Aarons aunt. Before reading, I had never heard of Bourton. So imagine my suprise when in the past week I've dealt with parcels in that area through work *weird smile moment*.
While there she continues to dream and feel the emotions of Mary. Now, Mary drowned on a ship leaving from London to New York, that sunk about 100+ years ago.
These dreams started around the time her trip was planned. Her dreams seem to engulf her as she lives Mary's past and before she leaves for her trip and even while she is in Bourton, she visits a few mediums who confirm that she had once lived before and now she has tofind her Thomas, the love of her life.
The problem is, her Thomas doesn't quite remember. He has feelings for Krista, and feels the same as her in the short amount of time they've spent with each other, but can he recall as to why he does? Aaron is her Thomas.
That tour guide / client relationship quickly flies out the window, but there is one huge factor that halts that relationship and the re-joining of their souls. They live in different countries. This part had me hook, line and sinker! How would they do it? Could they do it?
And I would tell you, but i'm not. You'll have to read it to find out.
I love that the book gives away all the emotion and all that jazz without giving it away.
You know how they feel and what they do *winks* without the author actually describing it and that is amazing! Sandra did an amazing job with that.
Completely in love with the book and so happy to have been given this opportunity to review.
