I love this Redwood Cove series and loved this peek at the characters of the other books before they actually meet and fall in love. It's fun seeing how their paths cross before they even know each other.

The book is a quick look at the residents and visitors on a festival day in Redwood Cove. It gives us an introduction to the characters and the beginnings or sources of the problems that play out and lead to romance in the follow on books. I like Alesha's writing style and these sweet romances and hope she continues to write about the lovely, mystical town of Redwood Cove.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Was Really Wrong This Time December 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the brevity of the story, getting introduced to the characters in a short and simple way. Frankly, when I buy a book that says its the prequel to something else, i don't usually hold out much hope that its going to be any good. I was really wrong this time.

Getting just enough of the characters and the setting to whet my appetite for more, that was a nice experience. It doesn't hurt that I like salmon and the Northwest anyway. :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Promise delivered! December 2, 2013
By Beejae
Format:Kindle Edition
As a prequel, the Promise of Redwood Cove was a perfect introduction to Alesha's series. I thoroughly enjoyed this short read even though I had already read the series. It was akin to re-visiting old friends and finding out more about their previous lives.
If I had read the prequel first, I would have been hooked on the rest of the series anyway, so from both angles the 'Promise'
Thank you Alesha - waiting for the next one now????

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Yes, this is short...but well worth the read before you dive into this great series. I fell in love with this town and these characters, so reading this prequel AFTER was awesome...more detail about how they all arrived in Redwood Cove. Loved it...wish I could have had the salmon myself, bought a wind chime of sea glass and had a psychic reading. Felt like I was there...loved this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect introduction to the series... October 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a fan of the Redwood Cove series, it was so much fun to read the Prequel and watch all of the characters come to life in one story. The Promise is the perfect introduction to the beautiful stories that follow.

As always with Alesha's work, there is a hint of romance and paranormal which together keep me turning the page. I love also how the community is so real, the descriptions vivid and the characters grow and evolve throughout the stories. And of course, I'm a sucker for a happy ending. These books never disappoint.

As promised, the author gives a short prequel, introducing the reader to the characters in her Redwood Cove series. Well written and interesting, the author gave me just enough of a taste, to leave me yearning to visit the fictional Redwood Cove and to learn more about what lies in store for these interesting characters. Well done.

More About the Author

Alesha Cary grew up reading mysteries and she still loves a good who-dunnit. But she's also a romantic at heart and believes we all deserve our own happily-ever-after -- we just have to find the right person. She writes her books with a bit of romance and a bit of mystery ~ and sometimes a splash of paranormal.

The mixture is different for each book, but you can expect to find some of each in every story.

Just like her characters, Alesha lives on the Pacific Northwest Coast with her husband and two cats. Their neighbors are deer, raccoons, skunks, foxes, mountain lions and bear, and far too many birds to list. From her window she gets to watch the whales playing as they migrate.

Alesha writes the CAROLINE DAWSON, HWE Series and the REDWOOD COVE Series.

>>>ABOUT The Redwood Cove Series:

Redwood Cove is a small town on the far Northern California coast. The area seems to draw the creative types who are more comfortable in nature than in the cities. Here are stories of romance with a slightly paranormal twist.


The Promise of Redwood Cove - Meet the main characters in the Redwood Cove series at the annual Spring Festival.

The Mermaid of Redwood Cove - Meaghan's life shifts forever the day she meets Griffin - a third generation seafaring skipper. A unique seashell found on the beach gives her the courage to follow her heart, even into the sea she fears so much. Then, the unthinkable happens and she is hurtled overboard only to be saved... but is it a miracle or was she spared by the grace and beauty of a childhood fable? Haunted by her dreams, she is driven to understand the mystery drawing her to Griffin.

The Beacon of Redwood Cove - Libby is a freelance journalist who loves books. She discovers a handwritten journal written by Adelaide, a young woman living in the area in the 1920s. The more she reads, the more Adelaide begins to visit her dreams. With the help of Darren, owner of the Lighthouse Cafe, they do their best to unravel the clues in the diary and in her dreams. When Darren's ex starts interfering, Libby sets off on her own to discover the answers she seeks. But the ex is determined to make life hell, and her betrayals threaten everyone.

The Shaman of Redwood Cove - Crystal is seeking peace from her past. Arriving in town, she is taken with its peacefulness and decides to settle in. But then her past calls to her, causing her to seek the same solution she used before. But as that begins to spiral out of control, she is visited by an ancient Shaman. Will she follow the Shaman's advice or end up in trouble again?

>>>ABOUT the Caroline Dawson Series:

After a messy divorce, Caroline Dawson pulled up stakes in Boulder, Colorado, and moved to the isolated Northern California coastal town of Dungeness Cove. The only person she knows when she gets there is her niece, Sarah Kingman, a 22 yr old nursing student working at the local hospital.

Before arriving in California, Carrie (as she prefers to be called) was a handwriting expert, working for the District Attorney's office and various local attorneys. Thanks to the divorce, Carrie is semi-retired. She plans to take a year off, but her handwriting analysis skills are in demand, and she gets dragged into helping to bring closure to cases including blackmail, forgery, murder, and affairs of the heart.


Made For Another (Released 12/23/12) - Sarah Kingman is a 22 year old nursing student who has recently returned to school. She is far from home and lonely for friendship. Until she starts going out with Tony. Maybe her luck has just changed!

1 Script 2 Many (Due for release 2014) - An apparent suicide - with too many questions and too many notes. Police Chief Jack Caldwell makes a special request for Carrie Dawson's help. But is his interest more than professional?
