    Underwhelming? Anti-climatic? -- A big whopping yes to both. If you're looking for a psychological suspense, The Promise isn't the book for you. I'd say it's more of a domestic fiction. Mostly though, it's just dull. The book begins with some serious potential: "Three girl...

    There are seconds between one whole path in your life and a different one. A split-second choice. Do it. Or don?t. This was a carefully crafted, exquisite gem of a book. Of course I was expecting a twist, you read enough of this type of thriller and you KNOW one is coming, but I...

    The Promise is a well written English psychological suspense novel about what happens when long-buried secrets and mistakes haunt the present. So why only 3 stars? I?m getting a little tired of being dragged through a slow first half by a heavily sign-posted secret, ensuring I?ll k...

    EXCERPT: 'I think I put my hand over her mouth. . .' 'Don't say that. Don't even think that. You wouldn't have done that.' They sit very still in this room of blood and sorrow - girls whose pulses burst in their veins and boom inside their ears. Their heads. Somewhere a clock tic...

    The Promise by Teresa Driscoll was a quick read for me. The story was a bit slow to begin with and I found the ending to be quite rushed. So much happened and quickly in the last 30% or so. It was a good story that has you wanting to know what has happened and who knows. 3 school fr...

    I thought this book was really good. I liked the friendship between Beth, Sally and Carol. It had a lot of twists and turns and some that really shocked me. It was a story of friendship, love and heartbreak. I really felt for Carol especially after all she had been through. Some of the...

    A promise is your word. A promise is a vow. A promise is binding. A promise is an agreement to do that which is difficult. We promise to attend a ballet recital for 6 year olds. We do promise to eat the entire quart of Rocky Road ice cream. Teresa Driscoll writes about The Promise tha...

    I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The Promise was an okay kind of thriller book. At first, I was super into it but then everything just kind of felt like it was dragging along. It made the book a bit boring and I sort of lost interest in tryin...

    Not impressed at all. I believed in this book. I hoped it would be better than the books by Ruth Ware, even though the promises were very similar to those of her books. Yet... It was a disaster. There is no suspense, there is no mystery, the characters seem to be thin as tissue pape...

    This is a good - not exactly original but still, good - story told in a very tricky way that I'm not sure will work for many readers. My first feeling was that the narrators in this book are having their own secret world, as opposed to the usual feeling when you as a reader are let ...
