5 Star Review – Crossing Promises (Cross Creek #3) by Kimberly Kincaid

5 Star Review – Crossing Promises (Cross Creek #3) by Kimberly Kincaid














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?














It’s time for another visit to Cross Creek, where the farms are plentiful, and the farmers are hot. Plus, this time, we get grumpy oldest brother Owen’s story and believe me when I say it’s not to be missed.
I freaking loved this book so much. In fact, it might just be my favourite Cross Creek book yet. I absolutely fell head over heels in love with Owen and his feisty heroine Cate as I watched their love story unfold.
Kimberly Kincaid dragged me through just about every emotion while reading this book and I can’t thank her enough for doing so and giving us the reader the book we have been waiting for and allowing us to take the journey with these two unforgettable characters.

For me, this story was about so much more than just Owen finally getting his HEA. It was about family and how much it can mean to everyone and how bigger role it plays in our lives.

I always think of Owen as the heart of the family even though Pappa Cross is there, Owen really is the glue that keeps them and the family farm together. When changes happen within the Cross family you know the heart is going to be the one thrown for a loop the most.

Enter Cate McAllister, the one person who will ground Owen like no one else can when his world shifts, and he starts to realise there’s more to life than the farm.

I love, love, loved Cate. I adored her from her first appearance, the way she stress bakes, her stubborn backbone, to the way she keeps things real with Owen, and for all she’s been through, she’s become a favourite of mine.

Put these two together and watch the sparks fly. Yes, they butt heads as they get to know each other better, but for me it just made the story so much richer and okay, it was like extended foreplay too. When they hit the sheets, you are in for a dirty talking farmer treat. Who knew that beneath the grumpiness there was a hot dirty talker in Owen?

I can’t forget the other things that happen in this book. BIG things that will make you squeal in joy, gasp, tear up and maybe even leave you goofy grinning more than once.

If you are a fan of this series, you will love what happens, if this is your first try, then it will no doubt have you scrambling to grab the other books to catch up. I can’t heap enough praise on this series. It just gets better and better as the family grows and makes me want to move to a fictional town to see if the famers really are that hot.

Kimberly Kincaid, thank you for Crossing Promises. That is all.
