From Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Virgin River novels, comes Thunder Point-the highly anticipated new series that will make you laugh, make you sigh, and make you fall in love with a small town filled with people you’ll never forget.

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands.

Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.

My Thoughts

I’m a huge fan of Robyn Carr’s other series and I was scared to start another one. I mean really, Virgin River was soooooo good. What if this one didn’t match up?

Well, hell, boy was I wrong.

This book was amazing! The small town setting along the cove along with the fantastic array of characters set up a series that’s sure to be a hit. Yes, it’s a slight spin off of her original series, but it’s a mind of its own with the familiar tone that Ms. Carr loves. Cooper and Sarah are the main couple, but there are many other characters, couples, and story lines that take hold and really show us readers what an amazing mind Ms. Carr has. She set up an amazing series in a town that I want to live in.

Cooper is a lost soul, one who after war has lived on his own without a set address. He’s come to Thunderpoint to say goodbye to an old friend and instead finds a woman, a friend, and a family in this small town. Sarah has come to Thunderpoint to start over after a horrible marriage and because she wants to take care of her teenage brother. I loved the chemistry between these two and the way they not only took care of each other, but the people around them.

I loved the side stories of the teenagers who I hope get their own book when they’re old enough. Ms. Carr has done it before, so I can’t wait. There was also and older couple who I loved and a few others that I know are coming up in the series.

The Wanderer showed us how much Ms. Carr can show us how a series can be a home for us. I am in love with it and I can’t wait for more.

I received an ARC of this novel via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I can’t wait to read this. You are absolutely right…Ms. Carr knows how to create a village… I wish we could all be children growing up in it.
