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 ...more
That is when the characters rely on God to make their decisions for them. I am not a Christian, and I ...more
I love the small town atmosphere Robin creates (Yes, I know RLH-and I received this book for review but it's my honest opinion.). Two characters, however, are hard to understand: Brooklyn's father who would rather nurse a grudge and wallow in bitterness that love a daughter and granddaughter.
He's kind of a ...more
A childhood friend, or acquaintance, comes to her rescue as she returns to Thunder Creek, Idaho, and you can see how he, Derek, is ...more
This one, set in Idaho, is another wonderful addition to her impressive arsenal of books. Hatcher always writes with a great depth of emotion and stirring spiritual elements and lessons for the reader to take away. This one included how believers deal with fear and rejection. Fear ...more

Brooklyn's arrival challenges Derek on so many levels. (And can I insert major ...more
This book for me was all about the pleasure of burying myself in a well written story, a fictional world with well defined and relatable characters and a realistic small town setting. I loved Robin Lee Hatcher writing style, she’s a good story teller that knows how to captivate the reader.
It’s a romantic story about a couple, but also a story about a place and a small community.
I especially liked how slowly the couple turned from ...more

I guess the "hometown" girl theme is just one I've read a lot this year so this one didn't connect. It's a quick beach read and enjoyable, but the plot was the individual leaving town..never wanting to return...Returns...and you ...more

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, ...more
Brooklyn is a hurting woman, no mother, a father who is a bitter, angry, hurting man, and a husband who abandoned her as soon as he finds out she's pregnant. To be fair, he does step up to the plate and will his deceased parents' house to him when he ...more
Prepare 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 ...more
I listened to the audio version. The narrator was obviously just a reader, not a performer, and she had a lovely voice. But her inflections and pauses were sometimes off enough to be disconcerting. And ...more
I would have liked a little more of an epilogue at the end to see how things progressed after the happily ever after but all in all I really liked the story. I like the stories set in small towns because I'm a city girl and it is fun to see a glimpse into idyllic small town life without having to live in one. ...more
I love Ms. Hatcher's writing style. She is one that will pull you in from the very first page. She'll grip you, captivate you and keep you in the center of the story and not let you go until you've turned the last page. Sitting there reflecting on what you've just read. Her writing never bores the reader and keeps them highly entertained and filled with lots of emotions!
I loved sweet Brooklyn. Bless her, she is broken and doesn't know who to trust or how. My heart wept for her...more
This was a lovely read. Seeing Brooklyn and Derek's fall as they become neighbors, then friends, then finishing their fall, along with Brooklyn's daughter, Miss Trouble the pup, and all the local characters, tragedies and triumphs woven together to make a lovely read.. A little bit of everything, and a lovely dash of romance for this sweet couple.
