This is an author I've been hearing a lot about, but haven't read her work before. The library had this book, so I decided to give it a try and I'm glad I did. Tripp and Bethy are both great characters that are very easy to relate too. It was sweet to see his devotion to her even when she didn't want it and equally wonderful to see her come back to life because of his attention. You were mine is the 9th book in the Rosemary Beach series, but I didn't have any trouble with it working as a stand alone novel. The secondary characters are important to the story, but it was not crucial to have every detail of their stories. Reading this one makes me want to go back and find the other books.
