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.

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.

IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Christian RomanceJuly 29, 2017IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Eighteen-year-old Brooklyn Myers left her home town of Thunder Creek, Idaho, to marry Chad Hallston, who left her just months later, when she announced she was pregnant. She's spent the last ten years trying to raise Alycia on her own, with the help of the neighbour who introduced her to a loving God:
A God who loved her, a Savior who had willingly died for her, a Spirit who renewed her mind and gave her strength.
Now Esther, her babysitter and best friend, is leaving town and Brooklyn has no idea how she'll juggle working with caring for Alycia. Until she finds Chad is dead, and she's been left the Hallston property back in Thunder Creek.
Derek Johnston is looking forward to buying the ten-acre Hallston property from Chad, to expand his organic farm. He isn't pleased when he finds Chad, his best friend, is dead and has left the land and house to Brooklyn. To complicate matters, Chad has also asked that Derek be the father Chad never was.
I loved all the characters, even while they struggled to love themselves and each other. I loved the developing relationships, the witty dialogue. I also loved the way Brooklyn's Christian faith was woven into the story:
She unfurled her hands, turning them palms up. Hands empty and open. And suddenly she understood that open hands were the only way she could receive anything new.
And I loved the way we discovered more about the histories of each character - Brooklyn, Derek, and Chad - as the story progressed, and the way those character histories explained and deepened their present journey.
Because this is a romance, and romance is all about the journey.
A great story of love and second chances. Recommended for contemporary romance fans.
Thanks to Thomas Nelson and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
RobbyeFayeAnniston, ALAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5HopeMay 30, 2017RobbyeFayeAnniston, ALAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Brooklyn Meyers was determined to make life better for herself and her ten-year-old daughter, Alycia. 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.
