Bestselling author Rachel Hauck and debut author Mandy Boerma return readers to the small town of Hearts Bend, TN in this contemporary inspirational romance.

In You’ll Be Mine, international hotelier Ben Carter returns to Hearts Bend to sell his grandparents’ inn, a place that holds many childhood memories. Some of those memories are shared with real estate developer Cami Jackson, though they haven’t seen each other in years. Ben wants to sell the inn and Cami wants to buy it. Can they rediscover a new future, one that requires them to leave behind past hurts?

Hauck and Boerma recreate the small town of Hearts Bend first introduced in Hauck’s Wedding Collection. It is not necessary to read those earlier books to enjoy this one – it is a standalone novel. Hauck provides the framework (and there are cameos of her Heart Bend characters), but Boerma does an excellent job of making it her own. Readers will look forward with eagerness to Boerma’s next book!

 Ben and Cami not only have a second chance at love, but they find forgiveness and healing when they come together at the Heart’s Bend Inn. The book is filled with a sweet romance, small-town charm, a clear faith element about trusting God, as well as familiar characters from Hauck’s earlier books, including the recent collaboration (One Fine Day).

Recommended for fans of  Hauck’s Wedding Collection, and Susan May Warren’s Deep Haven Collection, as well as fans of other small-town romances: Irene Hannon’s Hope Harbor series, and Courtney Walsh.
