four-stars #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr returns to Thunder Point with an uplifting story about overcoming loss and finding unexpected love  Scott Grant has a bustling family practice in the small Oregon community of Thunder Point. The town and its people have embraced the widowed doctor and father of two, his children are thriving, and Scott knows it's time to move on from his loss. But as the town's only doctor, the dating pool is limited. That is, until a stunning physician's assistant applies for a job at his clinic. Peyton Lacoumette considers herself entirely out of the dating scene. She's already been burned by a man with kids, and she's come to Thunder Point determined not to repeat past mistakes. When Scott offers her a job, at a much lower salary than she's used to, Peyton is surprisingly eager to accept…at least for now. She's willing to stay for a three-month trial period while she explores other options. Scott and Peyton know the arrangement is temporary—it isn't enough time to build a real relationship, never mind anything with lasting commitment. But love can blossom faster than you think when the timing is right, and this short visit just might hold the promise of forever.

Last spring I fell in love with Robyn Carr’s Thunder Point series, like so many series romance this one is set in a small fictional town in the Pacific Northwest – what is it that’s so romantic about this setting?  The characters are so endearing, yet real in a way that you feel like you could walk into Cooper’s for a beer and never leave – much like many of the newcomers to this small town!

For several books we’ve watched Scott Grant set up his medical practice and attempt to move beyond his grief of being widowed with two young children. I’ve always enjoyed Scott, but if I’m being honest? I didn’t expect to love his story as much as I do!

Peyton is just passing through Thunder Point after a bad break up and she is set on making Dr Grant work for her love! (Not that we can blame her after what she’s been through.) But these two characters are so perfect for one another, you can’t help but cheer for them! (And their visit to Peyton’s family farm has me anxious to try some Basque Cuisine!)

As always, Robyn Carr throws us into these peoples lives in a way that we never want to leave and we’re always looking forward to our next visit to Thunder Point! If you haven’t picked up any of this series, I strongly recommend it to fans of Susan Mallory, Susan Wiggs and Jill Shalvis.
