You’ll Think of Me was packed with emotion! I loved the two main characters, Brooklyn and Derek, as well as Brooklyn’s daughter, Alycia. The author really captured the feelings of these individuals and wove a story that I could hardly set down. I simply couldn’t stop turning the pages to find out what would happen next!
I liked that Brooklyn and Derek had a past, although not a romantic one. They knew each other from their teenage years. I felt for both of them as they began to get to know each other as adults and neighbors.
Brooklyn really struggled with trusting men. Based on the events in her life, it was completely understandable. I thought that she was a strong and resilient woman and a great mom. I found her very likable. Derek was also a great character. I appreciated that he, at first, struggled with frustration over the situation that he found himself in. Then, I loved watching as his heart was changed about so many things. I also loved the small town setting!
This was a truly wonderful contemporary romance from the first page to the last.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
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 Myers 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 better—a 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 Myers 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 which 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.
