Thirty-year-old Daisy DiStefano has two people she holds dear: the grandmother who raised her, and her three-year-old son, Elliott. But when Daisy’s grandmother is killed in a seemingly random act of violence, Daisy must take steps to protect herself and her child.

Despite a thriving career in San Francisco, thirty-six-year-old Brooks McClain has returned home to spend what little time his mother has left before she succumbs to the deadly disease that is ravaging her. The seasoned investigative reporter has taken a position with the local newspaper and been on the job less than twenty-four hours when he’s summoned to cover the death of Pauline Thorpe.

Brooks is all business, but the more time he spends with Daisy DiStefano, the more invested he becomes; there’s something about a single mother, a defenseless child, and an unsolved crime that has stirred Brooks’s protective instincts like nothing ever has before.

And when the unthinkable happens, Brooks will do whatever it takes to clear the name of the woman he’s fallen for and the child he’ll protect at any cost.

Romantic and suspenseful, Every Time I Think of You shows how far two people will go to fight for the ones they love, and the life they’ve always imagined.

Tracey Garvis Graves has once again won me over with her latest novel. Every Time I Think of You was definitely not what I was expecting. I thought it would be your typical romance novel with the main characters falling in love, having bumps in the road and then everything is back to normal again. Well this novel is not your cookie cutter romance book, thank goodness. It kept me on the tip of my chair literally (more like the edge of my bed since I was reading in bed, lol). 

The author created a novel that brought to the table a love story but included in that was tons of mystery, nail-biting thrills and even some horror. Yes you read that right, like I mentioned before, not your typical love story. I won't lie, at one point in the book I thought I was going to have a heart attack and just kept reading on saying to myself "it can't be". But the ending was my cure and thank you Tracey for that ending. 

I am a fan of these characters that Tracey created, Daisy has been dealt the worst of tragedies you can imagine might happen to a human being and she continues to go forward and protect and nurture her son even though all she wants is to sit in a dark corner and cry. Daisy knows that even though she lost her grandmother, her son survived what could have been a worse outcome, by loosing them both. Cue in Brooks, he has recently move back home to stay with his parents because his mother is suffering from ALS, and the dad needs his help. He has to leave his life in San Francisco on hold and run back to his childhood home. That's what you do when your parents become ill and our slowly dying, right? Well poor Brooks, wasn't expecting to see his mother in such a debilitated condition. My heart heart for both of these characters and the cards they were been dealt.  

This is when Brooks takes up working at the local paper in town while he stays with his folks and gets a call to cover the murder of Daisy's grandmother. This call will put Daisy and Brooks in each other path and will begin to change their futures at first with out them knowing and then it will become clear as day. But when you meet under horrible circumstances, you can expect mountain-size bumps in the road ahead.  But this is the kind of love that is definitely worth fighting for. So be prepared to be taken on a thrilling-romantic ride where you'll learn never to give up and know it's ok to lean on someone for help. 

Can't wait to see what is planned in the future for Tracey Garvis Graves. I have loved everyone of her books starting with On the Island. An author I highly recommend.
