REVIEW TOUR - Crossing Creek Series by Kimberly Kincaid

From USA Today bestselling author Kimberly Kincaid comes CROSSING PROMISES, 
the third standalone title in the Cross Creek series, releasing March 5th! A series filled with rugged, salt of the earth heroes who happen to be brothers, and strong family dynamics. 
Each standalone novel is filled with heart, humor, and heat. Order your copies 
of the Cross Creek series today!

For Owen Cross, the only thing that matters more than family is farming. As the oldest Cross brother, the land is his legacy, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make Cross Creek a success—including hiring local widow Cate McAllister to manage the bookkeeping tasks that are growing in his office like weeds. Cate’s as pragmatic as she is pretty, and she rattles his hard-fought composure at every turn.

Cate had known a lot of things about her husband before he died three years ago in a car accident, but how much debt he’d gotten them into wasn’t one of them. She needs her job at Cross Creek, even if her boss is both gruff and gorgeous. But Owen’s a family man, through and through, and the last thing Cate is interested in is anything—or anyone—with strings attached.

As Owen and Cate join forces to right the farm, they discover there’s more to the other than the surfaces shows, and that passion can be found in unexpected places. Can Cate heal from the loss of one family to gain the love of her life? Or will the past prove too much for the promise of the future?

Overall, I liked this series, although with each book there was something that kept me from fully loving each book. With Crossing Hearts,  I think I just didn't resonate with Emerson; I felt that while she might have accepted the news she received, she tried too hard to hide the truth. Why? I'm not saying go around broadcasting the news making it seem like you're trying to drum up sympathy, but if you wouldn't want your patients to act like that, follow your own advice. Obviously easier said than done if you've not been in that predicament, so there's that! With Crossing the Line, Eli and Scarlett might seem like they have nothing in common on the surface, but once you really get into the story, it's easy to see that they're similar in their feelings about their place in life, yet they reacted to their choices in vastly different ways. But it's those same ways that brought them together. I was hopeful for Crossing Promises with Owen and Cate, but that fell flat for me as well. I can't deny there's attraction between these two, but their interactions came across a bit awkward to me; not sure if it's because of Owen's less than sunshiny personality and Cate's tragic loss from 3 years prior that's the cause, but it felt odd. Not to mention it seemed like Cate had a grudge against the world.

And don’t miss the first two standalone titles in the Cross Creek series, CROSSING HEARTS and CROSSING THE LINE!


Hunter Cross has no regrets. Having left his football prospects behind the day he graduated high school, he’s happy to carry out his legacy on his family’s farm in the foothills of the Shenandoah. But when a shoulder injury puts him face-to-face with the high school sweetheart who abandoned town—and him—twelve years ago, Hunter’s simple life gets a lot more complicated.

Emerson Montgomery has secrets. Refusing to divulge why she left her job as a hotshot physical therapist for a pro football team, she struggles to readjust to life in the hometown she left behind. The more time she spends with Hunter, the more Emerson finds herself wanting to trust him with the diagnosis of MS that has turned her world upside down.

But revealing secrets comes with a price. Can Hunter and Emerson rekindle their past love? Or will the realities of the present—and the trust that goes with them—burn that bridge for good?


Cocky farmer Eli Cross plays twice as hard as he works. When his latest stunt drums up a heap of negative PR for the family farm, he grudgingly agrees to play host to an ambitious New York City photographer. Her feature on Cross Creek could be just the ticket to show the country what the Cross brothers do best…which is more problem than solution for Eli.

Scarlett Edwards-Stewart has photographed everything from end zones to war zones. She’s confident she can ace this one little story to help her best friend’s failing magazine. At least, she would be if her super-sexy host wasn’t so tight lipped. But the more Scarlett works with Eli, the more she discovers that he’s not who he seems. Can his secret bring them closer together? Or will it be the very thing that tears them apart?
