My review:

 I listened to this book over the course of a few weeks. I liked it okay but there was nothing that made me want to listen to it, except for finishing the book.

The characters were fine, the writing was fine, yet predictable. There was nothing wrong with the book, I just wasn't feeling it. I think part of it was the narrator. It was hard to tell when a character was talking and when they were thinking. It was also hard to tell when there was a scene change. It made for some confusing moments. Maybe I would have liked the book more if I had "read" it for myself, or even at a different point in time.





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.


  1. I can't really get into audio books. I do enjoy reading this author though.

    1. Deanne, I LOVE audiobooks...but usually ones with humor ;) I have found some contemporary authors I love to listen to as well.

  2. Some books are better to read and some are better for listening. I have read books by Robin Lee Hatcher before and enjoyed them.

    1. Wendy, I agree! I will give her another try, but reading next time or with a different narrator.

  3. Those issues with audiobooks are so frustrating. I've read quite a few of this author's historical fiction books and enjoyed them. I haven't gotten around to her contemporary ones yet.

    1. Ashley, I have several on my TBR by her so I will give her another try.

  4. Her Legacy of Faith series was really good!
