Who knew fate could twist a tragedy into a second chance at love?
Samantha Winters lives her life the way a good accountant should—measured, deliberate, and safe. After watching her father die in a tragic skiing accident, she decided never to allow risk into her life again. But she didn’t count on falling for Nick Chastain, who embodies everything she doesn’t want in her safely constructed world.
Against Samantha’s warnings, Nick plans a dangerous kayaking trip over spring break. Furious that he’s so careless with his life, she ends their fledgling relationship with harsh words.
Two years later, Samantha is desperately in need of a change. When she learns her grandmother has had an accident and is in need of a caretaker, Samantha quickly packs her bags and heads to Thunder Creek, Idaho. But nothing could prepare her for the surprise awaiting her in her grandmother’s hospital room . . . Nick.
With the charming backdrop of small-town friends, beloved cousins, and a whole church congregation rooting for them, can they set aside the disastrous ending of their first try at love? Has Nick changed enough to meet Samantha in the middle—and can she realize that a risk in love might be worth taking?
You’re Gonna Love Me by Robin Lee Hatcher is a sweet contemporary novel. For fans of Susan Mallory and Brenda Novak, this is just the book to read. Real life issues are present in this title. Loss of a loved one is never easy. The female protagonists takes the loss to heart. Shutting out any risks life may bring her. One such risk, was a young man, Nick. Nick takes risks. But apparently, he went too far, too fast with Samantha. She simply was not ready. Now, another loved one is hurt and it will take a miracle for the young couple to move forward. Understanding, love, and forgiveness are major themes of this journey. It was heartfelt. I enjoyed watching the transformation of Samantha and even Nick. Second chances do not always come…overall, I recommend this read to readers everywhere.
