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.

That was her main reason for not returning to Thunder Creek, Idaho. That and her cruel, abusive father. However, when she receives an unexpected, much- needed gift after the death of her estranged husband, Chad Hallston, she knows she must return.
Derek Johnson isn't too happy about the news of Brooklyn's return. He blames her for Chad leaving Thunder Creek, and in a small way, he figures she led to his death, too. But Chad's dying wish forces him to deal with Brooklyn and Alycia.
Robin Lee Hatcher's book, You'll Think of Me, primarily takes place in Thunder Creek, Idaho, a picturesque, idyllic town. The local population cares greatly about its town and townspeople, jumping in to help whenever and wherever it's needed. Miss Hatcher deftly weaves a story of a young woman beaten down by life who doesn't trust anyone except herself but has begun to learn to lean on the Lord for guidance and assurance.
As the story progresses, key characters in the story help Brooklyn to grow and learn life is a series of forgiveness and trust. Although the story could be dark and deep, Miss Hatcher uses just the right touches of depth and feeling to illustrate the tough situations within the story.
I received a copy of You'll Think of Me from two different sources: NetGalley and The Fiction Guild. However, I was under no obligation to post a review.
Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Lovely, Lyrical Romance!May 18, 2017Rebecca ManeyGastonia, North CarolinaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4"She would not let uncertainty change her course. She would not let fear rule her heart. She wouldn't be ruled by her past."
Brooklyn Myers has worked very hard to become on overcomer; refusing to let a sad childhood, a husband's desertion and the challenges of being a single mom, destroy her spirit. When a voice from the past offers her a second chance and the opportunity to return to her home town of Thunder Creek, Idaho, she swallows her fears, packs her meager belongings and leaves Reno, Nevada in the rear view mirror. Certainly God has heard her prayers.
Deputy Derek Johnson is shocked to find his best friend's widow and daughter sitting on the side of the road in Thunder Creek, having travelled quite a distance before their dilapidated car finally ground to a halt. Common courtesy requires him to offer them a lift, but Derek never trusted Brooklyn and now it appears, among other things, that she has the capacity to stunt expansion dreams for his organic farm property. Then there is that letter, a dying man's request that Derek "father" the daughter he never knew, giving Derek a lot to think about.
Enjoy this lovely, lyrical, easy to read romance that has a lot of things going for it, if you read between the lines, for " a cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart".

Just Commonly4 Stars Out Of 5Charming and sweetMay 16, 2017Just CommonlyQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0"Sometimes I think we live in a library. . ." is one of those sentences I love to read in any story. And I love it in Robin Lee Hatcher's latest release, You'll Think of Me. Possibly because it refers to a pretty cool kid, Alycia. Reading should be nurtured when they are young, and this kiddo is pretty fun to be around! You'll Think of Me is charming with a good dose of reality. Robin Lee Hatcher is not afraid to deal with the tough issues like abandonment, forgiveness and bitterness. She artfully laced such tough topics in a blanket of truth, love and warmth. Well done.
"Don't borrow trouble. . .consider the possibilities first. Then look for solutions." (16)
Each character had their flaws, and that makes it real. Brooklyn and Alycia's move back to Thunder Creek, Idaho, though because of the death of a husband and father that abandon them, was moving. Chad's final thoughts were of them, and to provide for them, and I guess it's all providence when we read how everything played out. In all, charming, sweet, and thoughtful. You'll Think of Me had it right, we will think of it.

I found myself really enjoying this book. Although, it did move just a tad too slow for me, because I found myself flying thru the chapters just to find out how it would end. I admit, I may have been just a little impatient that day. But truly, I found myself enjoying Robin's writing and the story about Brooklyn and Derek. I just found it a shame that there was no closure between her and her dad in the book. Nor did I really understand what happened to her mom, so many years before. Did she just leave or die?
I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
