Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for A Promise in Provence by Kyle Hunter, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


A Promise in Provence

Title: A Promise in Provence
Series: Provence
Author: Kyle Hunter
Publisher: Monceau Publishing
Release Date: May 7, 2019
Genre: Christian contemporary romance

Lauren is at a turning point. If only she knew where to turn. Her long-term relationship with Mark is fading fast. Instead, she feels drawn to Jean-Pierre, an attractive Frenchman she’d met the previous summer. When she’s laid off from her job as a chef, she decides to go see him in Provence, France. 

Mark can’t get Lauren out of his heart, even though it’s been close to a year since she asked him to give her space. When she goes to France, he’s afraid he’ll lose her for good. That is, until he decides to go there, too, as a last-ditch effort to win her back. 

At first, Lauren is angry that Mark follows her to France. But a joint desire to help a young refugee boy leads them to work together. Lauren finds herself torn between the two men. Worse, she’s confronted with obstacles in helping the boy and even greater obstacles within herself.

Hi Kyle! Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions and giving my readers the chance to get to know you and your new book- A Promise in Provence a little bit better!  I like to start these interviews the same way with something fun to break the ice: can you share 5 random facts about yourself that we will NOT find in your bio?

Sure! I’m happy to connect with you and your readers! Here are five things that aren’t in my bio. One: I was a Navy kid so lived in five places before the age of eight. Two: The biggest part of my life was spent in the Philadelphia area. Three: Even though I lived in France, I’m in love with about all of Europe, so that comes up in my writing. Four: I’m currently learning/dabbling in Italian, pottery, and photography. Five: I’m a cat-lover, though I’ve been cat-less for 2 years.

Let’s talk writing! When did you first discover that you had a passion and talent for writing?

At the age of 10! I even knew what my pen-name would be at that age. Hunter is my middle name (so it’s legit!) I wrote my first book when I was eleven, a story of a frog and a turtle who were best friends. Over the years, I stopped and started writing, but now have been writing fiction for 11 years.

A Promise in Provence takes place in Provence, France. France is a common setting in some of your stories and you have lived there yourself… what is your favorite part about France?

I lived in France for so long it feels like my second home. I love the culture, the architecture, almost everything about it. It has always had a special place in my heart and I’d like to visit annually for the rest of my life!

Have you done much traveling outside of France and the US? What are some of your other favorites or where would you most love to visit?

Two of my books have ties with Italy. That has to be my second favorite, after France. While I lived in France, I was able to visit most countries in western Europe and a few in eastern Europe. I still have quite a few yet to visit, though.


Can you tell us a little bit about A Promise in Provence?

This book has to be my favorite so far. Lauren’s story is poignant and deep as she struggles to piece together her feelings for two different men. One of these relationships leads her to Provence. The other man follows her there. During her time there, she meets and is able to help a refugee boy. I tried to paint the feeling and culture of Provence into both books in the Provence series.

What do you hope readers will take away from the book?

I don’t want to say too much specifically, but I always want a redemptive message of hope, of growth, and of God’s faithfulness as these are woven through the story and the conflicts the characters face. The refugee boy’s story is woven in with Lauren’s in touching and thought-provoking ways.

This is the second book in the series… will readers who have not yet read book one need to catch up or can this be enjoyed as a standalone?

I always try to write in such a way that each book can be enjoyed as a standalone. Readers of both books will see the whole scope of the story, but each book is different and has different takeaways.

Thank you again for taking the time to answer these questions. Before you go, are there any other projects you are currently working on that you can share?

Yes, I recently finished the second book in a series, the Second Chance Series. This is a 4-book series that followed four middle-aged women, formerly college friends, who re-establish their friendship years later. The first is Marissa Rewritten, a novella. This is followed by my most recent book, Julia Redesigned, which takes place in Florence, Italy. Two more books will come in 2021 to complete the series.
