Goodreads:  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.

Ope’s Opinion: This is the first book in Robyn Carr’s new series.   The book started out a little on the  slow side – only because she was introducing us to the town and all the characters.  Once we got to know everyone, the story moved right along.  

                                      The characters were all authentic.  Carr made you genuinely care about each one of them.  It was fun to watch them develop relationships with each other.  It was good to see some very strong women in this book.

                                    There was a little mystery in the story too.  It was interesting to see who was responsible for  the death of Ben.

                                     I am not crazy about the explicit sexual scenes.  I could live with ” the door to the bedroom closing” and leaving the rest to my imagination.  But the story was so good, it was worth reading through those scenes.

                                      I can’t wait to see what is next in store for Thunder Point and all  the people there. 

Rating:  Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.

  1. I liked this and look forward to the next book. Wasn't sure what I'd think because I'm such a fan of the Virgin River series. I know what you mean about the sex scenes but can read through because the storylines are so good. Have you read her Grace Valley trilogy? Really good!

  2. I did not read the Grace Valley trilogy – I will have to look into that and put it on my to-read list. Thanks for suggestion. I always like to hear about other good books.
