Jared's Promise Summary

Jared's Promise - The Escape
Jenny is a elementary school teacher on summer vacation, escaping an awkward situation in her home town after a recent breakup with her fiancé. A short-term summer job is perfect. And who wouldn't like the temporary job in New Orleans watching a precious baby girl. Let the good times roll.

The Promise
Injured oil worker Jared Montgomery lost his best friend in a horrific accident. Now he returns to New Orleans to recuperate, bringing his friend's orphaned baby home with him. He'd promised to bring her to the US if anything happened to his friend. Since Jared spends most of his time traveling the world, he'll put the little girl up for adoption, as soon as a suitable family is found.

Best Laid Plans
Jared finds himself falling for the adorable baby girl and her beautiful and outspoken nanny. But this footloose and fancy free bachelor has never been one to choose home over adventure. And Jenny's definitely not looking for any ties by summer's end. Just how much sway does a baby have?

Jared's Promise Review


    By Ellen/Oceanside
    JARED’S. PROMISE By Barbara McMahon Jared barely escaped death ten days ago, thinking these steps to his apartment would kill him. His sister hired someone to watch the baby. A friend who was in bind, now dead, as girlfriend was, that’s how his name ended up on the birth certificate, so his wife and family in states wouldn’t know. Jenny needed a job for the summer, and New Orleans sounded perfect. She came from an orphanage, and wanted to make a home for the baby. He was meeting his lawyer, to find a home as soon as possible for the baby. Could he do this for his best friend, and what about Jenny. The smiles from the baby and Jenny were melting his heart. Choices, for the three were to be made, making this a delightful story, as Barbara’s always are. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
