With humor and insight, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr looks at letting go of the past-and knowing when you’ve found something worth building your future on

Single dad and Thunder Point’s deputy sheriff “Mac” McCain has worked hard to keep everyone safe and happy. Now he’s found his own happiness with Gina James. The longtime friends have always shared the challenges and rewards of raising their adolescent daughters. With an unexpected romance growing between them, they’re feeling like teenagers themselves-suddenly they can’t get enough of one another.

And just when things are really taking off, their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos. When Mac’s long-lost-and not missed-ex-wife shows up in town, drama takes on a whole new meaning. They’re wondering if their new feelings for each other can withstand the pressure…but they are not going down without a fight.

Step into the world of Thunder Point, a little town on the Oregon coast where newcomers are welcomed, hearts are broken and mended, and the dramas of everyday life keep the locals laughing, crying and falling in love.

Ope’s Opinion:  This is the second book in the Thunder Point series.  You don’t have to read the first one of the series to enjoy this one, but it does make it better.  Knowing all the characters and their relationships make it real easy to get into the story.

As usual Robyn Carr knows how to weave all the story lines together.  Each family has issues to deal with, but they handle in such a way you don’t feel burdened while reading.  You know all the situations will be worked out – how they will be settled in the end your not sure.

I always feel like I learn something reading her books, but I am lectured to.  One character deals with depression from being cyber bullied.  It is interesting to learn how they dealt with depression and the signs to look for in someone.
I am looking to the next book set in Thunder Point.  I am sure Robyn Carr will deliver as usual.

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