Description

Millions of readers have fallen in love with Ava's bestselling books...come join the family.

International Bestselling Author Ava Miles presents an inspiring and emotional tale about a hero willing to go to any lengths to recapture his belief in the sweetness of love.

Jake Lassiter was a bona fide hero in the military before a tragedy in war changed his life forever. Now he’s a rising country music star, intent on healing the world and himself through his music. But his past still haunts him…

When Jake hires girl-next-door interior decorator Susannah McGuiness, he sees a kindred spirit and a woman who pulls at his soul. The first sparks of hope fire in him, the kind that can heal all the wounds he still carries inside. For a man resigned to never having a happily ever after, Susannah sure has him dreaming about one.

Susannah has always believed in the promise of rainbows, even when times are tough. She’s known some hard times herself and connects with Jake on a level she’s never known. In this hero, she doesn’t see a broken man, but one who’s risen again and again to life’s challenges. But Jake must heal his secret wounds to claim the love of his dreams

    I just finished the first 4 books (from Country Heaven thru The Promise of Rainbows). They were some of the best written and edited books Ive ever encountered. You are a gifted writer. Characters are very believeble. In all 4 books I found only 3 things that gave me pause: 1. ’56 Mustangs don’t exist 2. Sunday is the first day of the week—not the seventh or the sabbath. 3. unchartered territory should be uncharted territory… I have lived near Nashville since the late 60’s.

    As a new military mom, this book touched my heart. As a woman of faith, I loved how the author wove the McGuinness family's faith into this story. Would that every vet had a Reverend Louisa in his or her life. And of course I loved the HEA. Thank you for showing a more realistic side of PTSD, Ms. Miles. Move over JP, Jake's my new favorite Dare River guy.

    Thank you Ava for another powerful novels. Every time I read your book, I feel as if I am coming home to family. Truly amazed how your writing can evoke those feeling. Jake's character was so authentic. I come from a military family and you nailed it. I was terrified myself when he talked about his dreams. Not just the soldiers our hero's are affected. It's their family and friends. The emotions and the struggles they go through. You describe it well. I love the family dynamics of each family. Sunday Dinners are my favorite. I feel like I can bring over a dish and sit a spell. ANYONE, EVERYONE READ THIS SERIES,,,, ITS A HEARTWARMING. You won't want to put down

    I’ve read all the books in this series and the Dare Valley Series and all I could think of was that a new author had written it. It was so different from her other books. It was so corny. The characters kept repeating the same lines. I feel the PTSD story line is handled extremely well, but still a big disappointment as it didn’t read like her previous books. This is the first review I have ever left for a book.
  • A fantastic new addition to the Dare River series!

    The latest in the Dare River Series, "The Promise of Rainbow" features Jake Lassiter, a military vet suffering from PTSD (who has become a country music star), and Susannah McGuinness, the interior designer he hired to decorate his house. At first meeting, they both felt a connection, which strengthened as they spent more time together. Though Jake was better, his PTSD was a roadblock for him, preventing him from moving forward with a relationship. After some therapy with a pastor (who happens to be Susannah's mama), he starts to open up more and takes a chance. The connection between Jake and Susannah deepens, and her belief in the promise of rainbows helps bring them through. This book is a beautiful, heartbreaking look at some of the terrors our heroes in the military come home with; and a testament to faith, grace, and pure love. Be sure to have tissues at the ready...it is moving beyond words in places. Please note: I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

    I just love the title and the message it means in the book. That there is always hope in the dark. This is one very powerful and emotional book. It really brings to light what veterans face when they come homes. The daily struggle of living with PTSD. Jake is a army veteran turned country singer who is struggling with PTSD. He's getting to the point he's losing hope, but there is a light to show him the way and that's Susannah. Jake is willing to get the help in order to have a future with Susannah. Susannah is exactly what Jake needs that person to give him love and support which his own family is not giving. There is one part in the book that is so heartbreaking and pushes Jake to the breaking point. Will Jake be able to see the promise of a rainbow? This book does have a different vibe then Ava's other books. It does deliver the message of God and deals with spiritual nature. It's good that she wove it into the book because it's a very important aspect in Susannah's life. Just a little heads up when reading it's a tad different then what I'm used to, but by no means is it not enjoyable. I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

    "I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own." WOW, Ava Miles addresses the topic of PTSD, and develops a truly beautiful story of how love and family help Jake develop the inner strength he needs to tackle his PTSD. Jake Lassiter is one of country music's raising stars. Jake has a strong attraction to Susannah McGuiness and hires her as interior designer for his Nashville home. Susannah is also strongly attracted to Jake. Because of his PTSD, Jake is hesitant to pursue a relationship with Susannah. With love and support from Susannah, as well as counseling from Susannah's Pastor mother, Jake finds the courage and determination he needs to start healing and feeling whole again.

    The Promise of Rainbows is book four in the Dare River series by Ava Miles; the Dare River series is a spinoff of the Dare Valley series. I feel in love with all of these books in both series, they are all amazing and I would recommend them to anyone. Although you can read each book as a standalone book, the characters are recurring because of strong family bonds that are reflected in the books. Each book is about one person in the families- you learn about their life, the struggles and them trying to find love. The Promise of Rainbows is about Jake Lassiter and Susannah McGuiness. Jake is a military vet of 10 years, turned country music superstar who suffers from PTSD and although he was improving having been to countless counselors, he still needs help. Susannah is an interior decorator who has known Jake through her brother, also a country music musician. Through this book we learn how PTSD and the military has shaped Jake’s life and how hard he as struggled with it all. Susannah uses her personality and many love to break through to help Jake overcome his PTSD symptoms and episodes. Another big help is Louisa, who is Susannah’s momma and a preacher. This is a moving story about life, struggles and how people can overcome with the right help, willpower, love and guidance. This book is amazing. This book has more religion than the others seem to have so if you are against using God in books, this one is not for you. I think this is a great book on miracles that can happen, and shows a nice heartwarming way to overcome some of life’s obstacles.
