Me After You
Mindy Hayes
(Willowhaven, #1)
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Widowed at twenty-five, Sawyer Hartwell has no choice but to return to her hometown. Broke and alone, the intention was to heal and find herself again, but how can she heal in a place filled with so much sorrow and memories she yearns to forget?

Dean Preston has regretted leaving Willowhaven since the day he rode off on his motorcycle six years ago, destroying the only love he had ever known. Returning too late, he’s found small comfort in a new life with Lily, but with Sawyer back he’s not sure of anything anymore.

The time has come for Sawyer and Dean to face the past, to learn from their mistakes. The road to healing is paved with old wounds, each one threatening to tear them down completely. Carrying their own scars close to their hearts, they must both confront what’s gone before or lose their second chance.

Me Without You
Mindy Hayes
(Willowhaven, #2)
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Since her father’s abandonment eight years ago, Alix Fink has done everything in her power to keep her family’s affairs private. She’s as closed off as they come, but Aiden Ballard wants to remedy that. Though it’s been a losing battle, Aiden has been desperate to win Alix’s heart for years.

Everyone knows Aiden Ballard’s parent’s lives were lost in a fatal car accident when he was sixteen, but only Aiden knows what really happened that fateful night; something he’s been desperate to hide from everyone for the last nine years—especially from Alix.

In the small town of Willowhaven, secrets have a way of revealing themselves. Alix and Aiden couldn’t be farther from perfect, but they couldn’t be more perfect for each other. When their secrets rise to the surface, they must overcome them or face a lifetime of loneliness.

Me To You
Mindy Hayes
(Willowhaven, #3)
Releasing: Mid-Jan 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Once fearless and adventurous, Savannah Ballard hasn’t been the same since her accident in high school. While she appears composed on the outside, inside she’s screaming. She wants her life back and returning to the origin of her pain is the only way she knows how.

When successful New York lawyer Jude Rochester’s grandfather passes away he becomes the new owner of Rochester Grocers in Willowhaven. He has no intention of taking over the business, but he makes a trip to the small town to tie up loose ends.

After meeting on the street, Savannah becomes Jude’s tour guide for the week. As if life wasn’t messy enough, an unexpected romance may not be the best way to simplify it. They lead complicated lives they aren’t ready to share. When the secrets between them are so significant, distance might not be the only thing to threaten their future.

#MondayMelodies Mindy Hayes

Happy Monday! Welcome the fabulous Mindy Hayes as she shares her musical muse with you...


Like most authors, music plays a HUGE part in my writing process. I can't write without my ear buds in and the music blasting. If I get a good song it can carry an entire book. Grandfather Said by The Ethnographers was on repeat while I wrote my first book, Kaleidoscope. Most people haven't heard of them. Look them up. I love them. Honestly, every song by The Ethnographers inspired something in The Faylinn Novels--from lyrics to the melody to a feel of their songs--they were my Faylinn anthem.  

The song I really wanted to talk about today is Skin by Zola Jesus. I'd been stuck trying to evoke the emotion I needed for a particularly emotional scene in Me After You, where the main character, Sawyer, learns her husband was assaulted and is in critical condition (that might sound like a huge spoiler, but I promise, it's not!). When I heard Skin, I started to cry because the scene instantly began to play in slow motion inside my head. It wasn't so much the lyrics as it was the piano and emotion in the singer's voice. For the next hour I wrote with tears pouring down my cheeks!

Have you read Me After You? Do you remember the flashback? Can you see the scene play out with the song in the background?
