"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".

An unexpected twist of fate bring an unlikely pair together. A great story and easy read book about hope and finding love through faith. Loved the story and the prospect of hope for great things when you trust in God.
"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.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. This is my honest opinion.
I've always enjoyed Robin Lee Hatcher's books over the years, so when I stumbled upon this one I knew I had to read 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.
I was excited to have the chance to read and review You'll Think of Me because the story sounded interesting. I hoped to get sucked into it and fully enjoy it.
This book tells the story of a young woman who is raising her daughter all on her own, and a young man who was asked by his friend to act as a father to that little girl. This is a story of hurt and love.
Who the book is for:
Those who like a love story with more to it might like this book.
What I liked:
The characters are likable enough.
The idea behind the story is good.
What I didnt like:
I found the overall story and the way that it was written to be a bit boring. I skimmed it more than actually reading it.
I wish that there was more to this book. There are issues that are mentioned but then kind of overlooked. I wanted more from it.
Overall, I didn't think this book was great.
I give You'll Think of Me 3 out of 5 stars.
