    1. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed book 1 in this duology, Lies I Told when I read it earlier this year. I loved the premise of this story and the characters and when everything went down in that last chapter and I turned the last page, I knew I had to get my hands on book 2 as soon as possible.When I started Promises I Made, I was terribly concerned. Grace’s life has blown up and everything she wants and needs is out of reach. The boy she fell in love with and then betrayed… t [...]


    2. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: An amazing second installment with a lush setting and complex characters.Opening Sentence: When I think about what happened in Playa Hermosa, its not the gold that gets to me.The Review:Spoilers for Lies I Told ahead… Grace has changed. She is no longer naive. She will not be used again. She takes Cormac’s money and runs, with only one intention in mind: free Parker from jail, however long that takes. This isn’t going to be easy, and s [...]


    3. I love teen heist/con books and this was the first book I've read dealing with the "after". I was skeptical going into this, I knew it wouldn't have the action of the first book and I was worried about how it would compare. Well this was fantastic. Grace goes through so much; she's been betrayed, she has to acknowledge her betrayals, she's alone, she has to learn to trust, and so on. I loved how realistic this was, no matter how sorry Grace was there are some things you can't come back from. She [...]


    4. Disappointing. In my opinion, not enough action or substance to justify a sequel. A very slow read and rushed ending.


    5. Huge thank you to the publisher for sending me an advanced copy of this book for review!I liked this book butttttt I didn't love it as much as I did the previous book. I felt like a lot of the tension that made the first book so good was missing. And while I liked how everything was wrapped up it just felt like a lot of filler and this was a fairly short book.This book starts off shortly after the previous book left off. Grace and Cormac are living in Seattle, trying to con some money out of a w [...]


    6. oh my god i'm in love. this book, while not the kind that i was expecting, was so real. how grace's past decisions defines her future is not depicted idealistically, and that everything isn't going to just be okay because she's apologized a few times. i did feel like some parts were rushed with the whole resolution, but i honestly think this was a great sequel and yes i'm totally mourning the fact that logan and grace aren't a couple anymore, despite how much i loved them, but i think that's a r [...]


    7. After that ending in Lies I Told, I was so excited to be able to start this book immediately after finishing. It doesn't pick up right at the end of LIT, but Grace gives us the 411 on what's been happening. For me, this book had more of a slow burn. Since the con has already happened, there isn't much of a set up. Instead it's a cat a mouse game of sorts: Grace is trying to help Parker without getting caught. Which means there's a lot of hiding and incessant bus rides and less than 2 minute phon [...]


    8. This book is excellent and is worth reading. Promises I made is the sequel to Lies I Told, which was published on November 24, 2015. The book continues on and unfolds the result of the heist in Grace’s point of view. New characters are introduced and they are well developed as well as old characters, which you will get to know even better. The plot is original and has more plot twist and surprises. The second book is follows the same plot as the first, but extends it as well. There is nothing [...]


    9. Disappointed!! Not sure what I was expecting but found that this sequel to Lies I Told to be a letdown. And the supposed character, Detective Fletcher, never materializes. So many characters from the first book (Marcus, the mysterious next door neighbor who we never meet in the first book, Selena, Logan, Renee) become aware of Grace's reapppearance in Playa Hermosa but somehow the police never find her!



    10. "i always feel like something good comes out of everything .even the shitty stuff"-scottyhes totally one of my fave characters in this book !!!


    11. For starters, I had not meant to stay up all night reading the two books in this series. But I did, and they were SO good. The first book dealt with the months leading up to a heist we know goes wrong. This book deals with the months after everything went wrong for Grace. While I enjoyed the build of the first book, I think I preferred Promises I Made, because Grace on the run was more intense to me. I was almost looking over my shoulders as much as she was. In addition to that, I loved Marcus a [...]




    12. Grace is coming undone. After the disastrous events of Lies I Told, life is more than different. Her mother, Renee, has left them, her brother Parker is in jail and her father, Cormac, is already on to the next con. And Grace? Grace is tired. She is having serious doubts about her ability to carry on with the current con and watch another person’s life be ruined by Cormac’s actionsd hers. Grace is still reeling from the Playa Hermosa con that left an entire family in ruins. She can’t stop [...]


    13. I FINALLY got my greedy little paws all over this book. Earlier this year I read Lies I Told and could NOT wait to get Promises I Made, to finally get all the questions answered. So quick story short, Grace and her family rip off rich families, stealing their wealth and leaving as if nothing ever happened. While in Playa Hermosa their latest grift goes a wry and Parker ends up in jail, Cormac and Grace run away to Seattle, and Renee runs away with all stolen gold. Promises I Made is all centered [...]


    14. Grade: C+The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: I love heist books. And I apparently really like characters named Grace. Grace Fontaine is a lovely character. She's done a lot of bad things, and she knows they were bad. She doesn't excuse all her actions, and she's trying to be a better person. Not many books show the fallout and consequences of big things like the crime the Fontaines tried to pull off in Lies I Told, so I appreciated what Promises I Made had to offer in that area. This book provided [...]



    15. Wow, so I was so anxious for this book and when I finally got it, I attempted to read carefully and honestly, maybe the ending wasn't all what I wanted, but it was realistic and I appreciated that. And, I LOVE THIS SEQUEL and it's totally worth the read


    16. I received this book for free from Giveaway.I ABSOLUTELY 100% am in love with these series from Michelle Zink. I read Lies I told in one day and I read Promises I made in one day. I couldn't put the books down, they just keep you wondering what is going to happen next. This book is mostly about Grace and Parker(remember the kids who helped their adoptive parents commit crimes?). Grace gets away from her father, tries to help Parker get out of jail and she runs into someone unexpected Logan. Poo [...]


    17. *May contain spoilers*I received this book as a giveaway from Epic Reads. I actually prefer this sequel to the first book. As a heist/con book, both of the books fall short of what I prefer to read. However, these are probably close to what actually working a con would feel like: the emotional turmoil, the split second decisions, and stress. The main character Gracie is attempting to make amends the only way she can after the con finished in the previous book: finding a way to get her foster bro [...]


    18. I feel like this sequel did give justice to first novel on how Grace's story finally ends. However, I felt like Zink just forced some characters in the novel because they "had to be there". For example, I understand why she needed an encounter with Grace and Logan, but it was so awkward it felt like they never even knew each other. It was the same when Grace met her mother because none of these encounters really gave the reader any closure. The whole book dragged on and after a couple hundred pa [...]


    19. This is a great story. Michelle Zink weaves a story and characters in such a way that you feel true sympathy for Grace and Parker. The first book The lies I Told wove the plot and characters in such a way that you almost want everything to go off without the "family" being found out. Now you are invited in for the fall out. Grace is trying her best to make things right and help Parker. Parker is currently in jail for the theft and Renee has abandoned the family. Grace and Carmac have moved on to [...]


    20. A satisfying conclusion toLies I Told. Grace is trying to set things right after the Fairchild scam. Her number one priority is to get Parker out of jail. But she also needs to find forgiveness and learn to trust again. I loved the new characters that were introduced and I felt that Grace's journey towards redemption was believable. My only real complaint is that it was published as two separate books. It is really all one story, in two parts perhaps, but neither part stands on its own. Book Pai [...]


    21. Zink has really upped the ante in this sequel. Everything that Grace was feeling and going through is so much more real than the first book (Lies I Told). While the ending seems a bit too put together, I really like what happens with all the characters, and how Zink isn't afraid to get a bit dark when we're inside Grace's head. It wouldn't be believable if she didn't have some darker thoughts, considering her life, but Grace doesn't let that hold her down or give up. A quick read and needed sequ [...]


    22. I loved this book. I'd read a good review of it and didn't realise it was second in a series. It didn't matter that I didn't read book one, Grace's character and story shone through and I was hooked from the first chapter. The characters, the storyline, everything worked to make me really care and hope for a happy emding. What a strong young woman Grace turned out to be, and what delightful and loving friends she found in Scotty and Marcus. I wish they were in my circle of friends. They are gold [...]


    23. I thought this was good - but not as good as the first one. Definitely suffers from sequel syndrome. There just wasn't the same passion in this one as there was the first - it was a lot more story and not so much relationships. and heart tugging and all that. I didn't feel for Grace and Parker like i did in the first one - this may have been a too far between reads thing. I thought that Grace had a lot of character development but I was upset with what happened with the mom. Really made me grump [...]


    24. Liked this book even better than the prequel. I love the relationship of the two men (the former grifter and the former cop) and how they blend together like light and darkness. I also love the fact that Grace is forced to confront Selena and Logan, her former mark. There's an honesty to the feelings and ideas that Grace reveals, particularly around seeing her former friends prepare for prom. But there is also redemption in how she struggles to try to not take the easy way out in order to fix th [...]


    25. So good. I have to say that I am super disappointed that her and Logan didn't get back together or it even hint that they did, and I understand what she did to him was kind of unforgivable but still, throw a girl a bone. And also I was totally rooting for Parker until he decided that he needed to leave, breaking parole no less, totally ditching Grace, who risked a lot to get him out. A little selfish if you ask me. But anyway, great sequel! Didn't disappoint!
