Isabel Gallegos has been waiting for years for her dream to come true. Finally she is going to have it and is determined to not let anybody destroy her dream. Years ago she was married to a man who took her for granted and now he’s back. She knows he mean’s well but she isn’t ready to move from friendship to marriage again. Yep everything is going as planned. She never thought her cousin from Argentina would be ruining her plans. Isabel knows it’s not her cousin’s fault for dying and leaving Isabel with some kids. Isabel has never had a motherly bone in her body and doesn’t plan to have it now. No her main goal is to get the children a good home even it means breaking their hearts. The problem is that even though she is determined to get her dream to be a reality the children are making her see what being a mother is like. Can she just give these children up and her husband in the process?
This is my first Julia Amante title and I have to say I really liked it. I was surprised that the author took a regularly used storyline and actually made it better. Isabel is your usual career woman but wants to relax instead of moving up on the ladder. The storyline had me turning the pages as I wanted to see how Isabel would deal with children in her life. Julia Amante did a great job in showing us Isabel’s struggle to be a good step in mom and still maintain her sanity through everything. Say You’ll Be Mine is definitely a sweet romance that you will enjoy. It’s about one woman trying to find her true self. Great Book!
Isabel Gallegos is only a handshake away from living her dream life. After years of putting everyone else's needs before her own, she's selling her family's vineyard and moving to a quiet cottage on the California coast. But just as she's about to seal the deal, a letter arrives from Argentina with shocking news: Her beloved cousin has died and Isabel is now the sole guardian of three young children.
Still holding on to her dream, Isabel travels to Argentina. There she meets little Julieta, the cherubic baby of the family; eight-year-old Adelmo, as hot-tempered as his sister is sweet; and ten-year-old Sandra, whose heart-shaped face and quiet confidence remind Isabel so much of her late cousin. She tells herself to let the children go, to leave them in the care of their grandmother or perhaps their long-lost uncle who abruptly reappears. Or should she listen to her ex-husband, who is suddenly at her side, urging her to give the children--and him--a chance?
If she's willing to take a risk, three tiny strangers just might change Isabel's life in ways she's never imagined.
