Jill Jennings’ dream of becoming an elite runner turns into a nightmare when she breaks her leg less than a year before the Olympic trials. After two surgeries and a lengthy rehabilitation, she’s ready to pursue her goal again. Or is she…
Jill’s healing and ready to hit the pavement, but her passion for the sport she’d planned to make her career unexpectedly wanes. On a whim, she changes course and runs right into tall, blonde, and gorgeous Tyler Bloodworth. Fly fisherman come and go in south central Colorado, but Ty’s back for a second summer, minus his girlfriend and hotter than ever.
Tyler Bloodworth's life plan to start a fly-fishing business with his dad back home in North Carolina is suddenly snagged when Jill Jennings runs circles around his heart during a summer stint as a fishing guide in Colorado. Back for a second summer, he sets his bait and casts his line, but Jill's not so easy to catch.
A catch and release fisherman hooks the one girl he won’t let go. A distance runner with big dreams and an uncertain future falls hard for a summer fling. Can Jill risk losing her career and her heart to Tyler when he’ll be gone in a few months, or will Ty reel in the biggest catch of his life?

Christy Hayes is one of my favorite Romance writers. Her stories are very believable and her characters always seem like they could be your neighbors. (Don't we all romanticize about our neighbor's lives just a little?) What I love about Mending the Line is the story unfolds over time. The two main characters, Ty and Jill, are attracted to one another, but they don't rush into anything, but rather build up the anticipation for each other and the readers. You can feel the passion he has for her when he discusses his life altering decisions with his parents. The setting of this story is described so beautifully. I can see myself running along the mountain path with Jill while she trains, fly fishing with Ty or having a drink at the bar with both if them. I really liked the development of the other characters in the story and was very excited to read that there will be another book in the series! Not only is Mending the Line worth the read, I know you will be hooked on Christy Hayes when you are finished! Enjoy.
