In a small town in Idaho's idyllic wine country where the past looms large, can two people realize their individual dreams for the future . . . together?
Abandoned once too often, Brooklyn Meyers never intended to return to Thunder Creek, Idaho. Her hometown holds too many memories of heartache and rejection. But when her estranged husband Chad Hallston dies and leaves his family home and acreage to her and their ten-year-old daughter Alycia, it's an opportunity to change their lives for the bettera chance Brooklyn can't pass up, for Alycia's sake if not her own.
Derek Johnson, Chad's best friend since boyhood, isn't keen on the return of Brooklyn Meyers to Thunder Creek. He still blames her for leading his friend astray. And now she has ruined his chance to buy the neighboring ten acres that would have allowed him to expand his organic farm. To add insult to injury, Chad's dying request was that Derek become the father to Alycia that Chad never was. How can he keep that promise without also spending time with the girl's mother?
Brought together by unexpected circumstances, Derek and Brooklyn must both confront challenges to their dreams and expectations. He must overcome long held misconceptions about Brooklyn, while she must learn to trust someone other than herself. And if they can do it, they just might discover that God has something better in mind than either of them ever imagined.

ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5DelightfulDecember 3, 2017ShaiNorfolk, NEAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4You'll Think of Me is a sweet romance about a single mom, Brooklyn Myers and her ex-husband's best friend, Derek Johnson. They are tossed together by their mutual connection and find themselves battling for the same land. At first, each has decided to obtain the land for themselves, but their motivations change because of someone far more important, Brooklyn's daughter, Alycia. The couple finds themselves in a place where sacrifice can create something much deeper than a winner. You'll Think of Me is a lovely story about sacrifices, forgiveness, and falling in love when it's least expected. I enjoyed it and am looking forward to book two.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Awesome!October 30, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5An inspiring romance that tugged at my heartstrings as I lived each exhilarating moment with Brooklyn and Derek.
Brooklyn is a real overcomer though she is still taunted by her harsh upbringing. But she fights her way through as she strives to make a better childhood for her own daughter. For the most part, she's got this, even though returning to her hometown has stirred up feelings she thought buried long ago.
Brooklyn's arrival challenges Derek on so many levels. (And can I insert major fan-girling here over an organic farmer hero. Stuff my dreams are made of!) Alas, he's stuck in the past too. Ever loyal to his deceased best friend, he's sure that Brooklyn was trouble back then and is certainly trouble now...at least where his dreams are concerned. These two struggle with loss and forgiveness as they begin to clear a path towards a joyous future...if they have the courage to let go of the past.
Hatcher writes relatable characters with realistic dilemmas and I love how she weaves the power faith brings to the most challenging circumstances. Her words reached into my life and ministered to me through Brooklyn's journey and I am so grateful to an author who isn't afraid to speak Truth into her stories and consequently into my life.
You'll Think of Me is the kind of read that will capture your heart and soul and leave you glad you spent some time in Thunder Creek, Idaho.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Going HomeOctober 13, 2017MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0The author the characters so real in this book, I felt I was watching a movie, or looking at real life. My heart broke for the young Brooklyn, all that happened to her, and then she raises a wonderful daughter, really correcting all the wrong parenting that happened to her. We find the difference is that she has become a Christian, and she really lives her faith.
A childhood friend, or acquaintance, comes to her rescue as she returns to Thunder Creek, Idaho, and you can see how he, Derek, is disappointed and yet happy to see her. We see how he didnt like her as a child or young teen with his best friend becoming closer to Brooklyn, he was loosing his friend, and then when he again looses his hopeful land. Oh dear!
Brooklyns daughter Alycia is delightful, and at ten going on twenty, she is a child and yet she has a lot of compassion, and is there for others.
This story has so much going for it, and I hated to see it end, but there is another book coming, a stand alone, but set right here in Thunder Creek! You dont want to miss this sweet read, a real enjoyment!
BethErinILAge: 25-34Gender: Female4 Stars Out Of 5Sweet story of coming home again and healingSeptember 11, 2017BethErinILAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Prepare your heartstrings, reader friends, this sweet story will pull them in a beautiful way! Despite the scars left by her past, Brooklyn has pulled herself up by the bootstraps. She is an all-out dedicated and devoted single mom to her daughter Alycia!
Derek is obviously a natural-born protector, both his position as a deputy and conscientiousfarmer attest to that fact. Derek also gets triple brownie points for his strong relationship with his Gran Ruth. Getting Gran's perspective on all the happenings is icing on the cake.
From the tight-knit community that draws folks in, to the adorable little fru-frurescue dog, this story is full of sweet moments and healing from heartache. Faith, family, and community are just what the doctor ordered (according to Gran and no one argues with Gran).
I requested the opportunity to read this book through the publisher. The opinions expressed are my own.
