Book Review: Victoria's Promise by Julie Wright
Author: Julie Wright

Content Alert: a clean read
While Tori works long hours as an Assistant Director for Vows (a Bachelor-type reality show), her real passion is screenwriting. Other than those two things (and her montly book club meetings), she doesn't have much time in her life for anything else, including love. Then Tori meets Chris, who seems to be the perfect man for her. The catch? Thirty other women are vying for his love, and falling in love with him would put her own career in jeopardy. So which will she choose? Love or work?
I've probably read about half a dozen of the books in The Newport Ladies Book Club series now, and I think this one was my favorite. I'm finally seeing all of the stories start to intersect more clearly, and I think that's working well. I also really liked Tori as a character, and identified with her dilemma. I wish there had been more of Chris in the story-- she spends so much time avoiding him that it seems that she's more in love with the idea of him than actually being in love with him. That said, I really loved the surprising way the story came together in the end. This is definitely a fun read.
