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 takes readers back to the charming town of Thunder Creek, Idaho. In a love story about second chances and overcoming fear, we see a story unfold that connects us to its predecessor and develops a whole new story all its own.
Samantha is an accountant and has experienced loss from someone skiing, something she would consider an unnecessary risk. Now she is set never to allow risk into her life again. A few years before this story Samantha and Nick dated, but Nick was a risk taker. While they were dating, Nick planned a kayaking trip over spring break and Samantha ended their relationship.
Now back in Thunder Creek to care for her grandmother, Samantha sees Nick. Samantha didn’t expect to see him, but through a series of events their past unfolds.

I think the author did a nice job with this story and I appreciate the development of the character’s stories. Overall, this was an enjoyable read.
