Summary (cr: goodreads)

Promises are easy to make but hard to keep. 

Having long made a promise to her husband, young widow Annabel has no intentions of breaking it. What she does plan to do, though, is have a baby. Not the easiest of tasks for a woman with a deceased other half, and having explored all her options, her only choice is to take the unconventional route. Setting out to find her own donor, Annabel meets Dan. Single, fun-loving and definitely not looking for commitment, this unruly blonde, blue-eyed man seems perfect for the job. 

Dan wants nothing more than to find his dream woman. But with a mother intent on sabotaging his every relationship, he can't help but think he's destined to remain single. Of course, he knows his mother doesn't really want him all for herself, why else would she keep insisting he meet Maeve? Why else would she insist Dan promise to find himself a wife before she meets her maker? 

Forced to negotiate matters of love, life and death, Annabel and Dan seem the answer to each other's prayers. But will they really be able to keep the promises they made? And is having a baby really the answer?

My Review: (also in goodreads)

It's always an honor to receive a book from the author asking you to give an honest review about it. It means they value your review and your ability to review without any pretense. Therefore, I'm going to give this an honest review:

This book has been a breeze to read. It is one of those books I could read just to pass the time while on a long bus ride. This is about second chances. Annabel and Dan badly need their chances to have their happy ending. Annabel who always have been hung up with the death of her husband finally had the balls to try to move on. Although there were times she think that it would betray her promise to her husband, she is in the part of her life where she wants to desperately want a baby. So desperate that being a single mom would be okay despite her sister and best friend's effort to stop her. Dan is someone who I think wants to have his happy ever after without his mother breathing down his neck and partnering him up with her friend's daughter. An unfortunate circumstance might befall him but when a great devastation comes, there's always hope in the end and I think that is what Annabel would symbolize for Dan. Its nice to see that both of them would get their second chances and that they compliment each other. The future may be uncertain but at least they took the chance.
