ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: With You I Am
Series: Bryant Family #1
Author: Cleopatra Margot
Publisher: Faith to Love Publishing
Release Date: June 21, 2021
Genre: Contemporary Christian romance
Event coordinator Noelle Carter’s main priority is running the successful company her grandparents founded. After all, they’re the ones who raised her, and she’s the one they entrusted their company to after their deaths. So when a letter comes across her desk inviting her to plan the Spring Fling in her grandmother’s hometown of Balsam Falls, Nebraska, she’s faced with a choice: stay and work on maintaining Carter, Inc.’s current success, or go and take a leap of faith–outside of her comfort zone.
For contractor Wynn Bryant, helping others is the key to life’s greatest blessings. Over the past ten years, he and his brother have built homes for those who need them, creating a reputable name for themselves. Between that and helping out at the Serendipity Inn, his parents’ bed and breakfast, he’s put his other dreams on the back burner for now. Until the mayor ropes him into restoring The Gardens with a beautiful but guarded young CEO from Mississippi.
Connected by a desire to help others, Wynn and Noelle dive into restoring a neglected piece of Balsam Falls’s history while learning from, and of, their own pasts. Together they uncover past secrets, current challenges, and help each other discover healing and forgiveness in ways neither imagined. Will their discoveries lead to love, or are some things better left as they are?
IN MY OPINION
In With You I Am, Cleopatra Margot introduces readers to the Bryant family and the quaint town of Balsam Falls.
Because this book starts a new series, Margot dedicates time to laying the groundwork of the inner workings of the Bryant’s inn, the relationships between the family and may other Balsam Falls residents, and more. The Bryant family (especially Wynn and Ember) is one I’d love to hand out with in real life. But since they’re fictional, I’m happy to know we’ll be seeing more of them.
Throughout this character-driven romance, Wynn and Noelle live out their faith in their daily lives. While there are humorous and sweet moments in this book, the wisdom within the pages will resonate with many readers. And while this book is lengthy at 400 pages, it is so worth hanging in there until the end because Margot’s characters will make an impression and you’ll want to take another reading vacation to Balsam Falls.
