though I loved the other books in the series, this is definitely my favorite so far I m hoping that the series continues as I am not nearly ready to leave Thunder Point and these fun lovable characters I loved Cooper and Sarah their story was so sweet and funny and I was so happy with the way things turned out for them I also loved Mac and Gina, although, they didn t have that much of a storyline in this book LOVED LOVED LOVED Devon and Mercy Devon s story was so unique and unexpected that I was pulled right in I loved the relationship that Devon and especially Mercy had with Rawley so cute And Of course, I loved her and Spencer as a couple Evenso after he stopped being an asshat lol But he so made up for it in the end I just loved the ending I m keeping my fingers crossed for books for the Dr and especially for Eric just love him as they each deserve their HEA as well There is so much to love about this series and I am so looking forward toARC provided by NetGalley Thanks

in what is, apparently, a new series, the Thunder Point series I take it that Carr s books are quite popular this was the number one bestseller in the New York Times bestseller list when I purchased it It is a fantasy Oh, you won t find it in any catalogue of fantasy novels I suppose it is categorized as a romance It is, nevertheless, a fantasy.The Hero tells the story of Devon McAllister and her three year old daughter Mercy Devon, now in her late twenties, has spent the last four years of her life living within a religious commune, The Fellowship, run by the increasingly autocratic and erratic Jacob Although Jacob probably genuinely regards himself as some kind of messianic figure, the commune is a front for growing a large marijuana crop Jacob draws vulnerable young women into his circle, generally beds them and fathers children by them Although he is apparently ready to let the women escape, if they want to, he is very possessive of the children Devon escapes with her daughter, with the assistance of Laine who is, unbeknownst to her, an undercover FBI agent Devon escapes to a small town, Thunder Point, on the northwest coast of the USA, where she gradually begins to regain her self confidence, build a new life for herself and Mercy, and, yes, find love in the arms of Spencer For a time she lives in fear that Jacob will come searching for his daughter, which eventually he does, leading to a quite interesting, but hardly unexpected climax.The novel is populated with the various characters who inhabit this small coastal town, including Rawley, a rough old Vietnam vet, and various other men and women who tend to blur together Each has a back story of some kind, variously interesting or not The story is fairly predictable, but not badly written That is to say, all the words are in the right place and spelled correctly The real problem for me is the people who live in this town Each and every one of them is simply too good to be true There is scarcely a bad deed to be seen, a nasty word spoken, or a bad thought entertained In this town, everyone is nice to everyone else, everyone is on their best behaviour, and everyone is just right neighbourly As I said, this is a fantasy The bad guys, chiefly Jacob, are, of course, outsiders There are a couple of nasty ish FBI agents who come to question Devon These, too, are, of course, outsiders The only character who really interested me at all was Laine, the undercover FBI agent She at least has some gutsy moments As I was reading, I couldn t help thinking that here was yet another perfect American town, which, were one of its inhabitants to go berserk and start shooting people, would be in shock that such a thing could happen in their perfect, safe, quiet little community There were times when I wanted to pick up the gun myself I find it hard to understand why such an unremarkable book would reach the number one bestseller position Perhaps I find it worrying, too It seems so difficult for American culture to embrace a realistic view of itself It would rather entertain and perpetuate this fantasy The good guys on one side, the bad on the other nobody with a bit of the bad mixed in with a bit of the good No society will ever grow up until it begins to perceive and understand itself realistically, warts and all As a piece of writing this is okay As a story, it is predictable, but okay As an exposition of human nature, it is appalling If you believe in elves, the Good Witch Glinda and the tooth fairy, you will believe in the people of Thunder Point I give this a begrudging three stars With warmth and sensitivity, New York Timesbestselling author Robyn Carr shows readers that falling in love can be the bravest act of all In a moment of desperation, Devon McAllister takes her daughter and flees a place where they should have been safe and secure She has no idea what is around the next bend, but she is pretty certain it can t be worse than what they ve left behind Her plan is to escape to somewhere she can be invisible Instead, an unexpected offer of assistance leads her to Thunder Point, a tiny Oregon town with a willingness to help someone in need As the widowed father of a vulnerable young boy, Spencer Lawson knows something about needing friendship But he s not looking for anything else Instead, he s thrown his energy into his new role as Thunder Point s high school football coach Tough and demanding to his team, off the field he s gentle and kindjust the kind of man who could heal Devon s wounded heart Devon

Lawson and his son Austin newly moved to Thunder Point are still dealing with the recent death of his wife and Austin s mother Spencer is also readjusting to the fact that Austin is not her biological son but Cooper s.I feel really bad right now It only took three books for me to completely give up on ever reading any of Robyn Carr s Thunder Point series I absolutely adored book 1, The Wanderer and found book 2 average except for one story line.The reasons why I gave this novel zero stars is as follows Too many story lines I honestly don t mind when a book has too many story lines The problem is that sometimes without meaning to one story line will overpower the other ones and a reader can end up getting sick of all of the other filler story lines I am assuming that some of the story lines will be followed up in subsequent novels, but I have absolutely no intention of infliction another one of these books upon myself again It also didn t help that tying all that went happened in this book into one coherent storyline did not work at all I also seriously started to just lose track of everyone in this novel It didn t help that we got introduced to two whole new characters who I am sure are going to appear in book 4 The Chance.No Romance at all I was willing to overlook the luke warm love scenes in the previous book since I thought that the major plot line that was going on redeemed it However, in this novel there is literally no chemistry at all between the two main characters in this novel.The other two major couples in this novel, Coop and Sarah and Gina and Mac should just be brother and sister considering the lack of any type of sexy times occurring It really disappointed me especially because in book 1 I thought that Coop and Sarah had the best relationship out of any of the couples.Majorly Annoyed by Main Romantic Storyline The major romantic storyline was hands down utterly ridiculous.You had a woman Devon who just escaped a cult Where she had no ability to actually be independent and was expected to do all manner of things She escapes to Thunder Point And she in a matter of a week seems to transform into a whole new person She should have been afraid and reluctant to even start up a relationship with someone new.And it makes no sense that Spencer a mere three months after he lost his wife is falling in love with someone else I wished at one point this was a romance zombie book so that his wife would rise up out of that grave and eat him and the new love of his life Spencer as written in book 2 was absolutely in love with his wife One of the scenes mentions him telling Coop that he holds his wife or sleeps next to her in a cot if she is in too much pain I wish that we had this guy in this novel instead of some meat head who after hearing Devon s voice becomes utterly obsessed with her and jealous of anyone that she is spending time with.It would have made sense and I would have been on board if Robyn Carr had them not moving forward in their relationship, taking time with each other and we could have followed it up in subsequent books If you are writing a series there is absolutely no need to have all of the pairings happen in that book It didn t help that Coop of all people speaking as Jack from Virgin River was all smug about Spencer and his relationship with Devon I wish Spencer had punched him in his face Coop would have deserved it.Disappearing Kids I know that Robyn Carr can write children and teenagers quite well Why she barely shows any interaction between Austin and any of the other teen characters besides someone telling Landon or someone else to watch Austin for them I have no idea.To sum, I would not recommend this novel and would say just stick with book 1 and pretend that was the first and last Thunder Point series novel Just not for me.Started out interesting heroine escapes from a crazy compound that s a front for a drug deal ring , but then there were too many side plots I couldn t even keep their names straight , and the entire relationship between the main couple took place off page I stopped caring at about 80% in, and m guessing either the evil leader will go after the heroine and kidnap either her and or the kid, or the FBI will raid the compound Since I don t care about what happens in either case, Just not for me.Started out interesting heroine escapes from a

about what happens in either case, I just gave up.Also, I disliked both main characters She walked away from what amounts to a sect, trusts the first stranger who picks her up on a highway to not take advantage of her AND her daughter, doesn t think the kids father would bother to take away his kid, and manages to, of course, land in the perfect little town that is filled with people who seem to all be divorced, widowed, single parents, and or raising someone else s kid, where she is accepted with open arms by all the perfectly nice and sweet people I also didn t buy her miraculous recovery from years of brainwashing and being made to believe she was worth nothing Plus she actually wonders why the hero is pulling away from her after she drops her little want to be my kid s guardian after knowing him for just a few months I just didn t understand her at all and wished there wasdevelopment on her end The hero was too perfect for my taste He was nice, and caring, raised a kid that wasn t even his, moved across the country so the kid could be near his biological dad, too I like nice, average people, but theses two were so upbeat and damn happy and sugary sweet all the time, I stopped caring about what happens to them Also, one tiny, little thing the man just buried his wife after a long illness not even half a year ago, and he s already ready to fall in love again I don t really want to review this but I feel the need to grumble because I have got to stop trying with these authors As before, Robyn Carr has a lot of potential, ruined by her complete inability to let a side character stay a side character I have no problems with small town sagas with connecting characters between books, or even alternate perspectives But she doesn t write secondary characters She writes primary characters for a future book, or a past book, and lets their story randomly I don t really want to review this but I feel the need to grumble because I have got to stop trying with these authors As before, Robyn Carr has a lot of potential, ruined by her complete inability to let a side character stay a side character I have no problems with small town sagas with connecting characters between books, or even alternate perspectives But she doesn t write secondary characters She writes primary characters for a future book, or a past book, and lets their story randomly take over I have read 2 books by her that were just the story as advertised, but everything else the story in the blurb makes up maybe 60% sometimes less one time much less of the book, with 4 or 5 other stories randomly taking focus Stories from past books characters, setup for stories from future books, etc Maybe this kind of writing works well for readers with shorter attention spans who like to to bounce around, but for me it undermines the narrative, and limits the actual time spent on each story This isn t a 380 page romance, it is a 200 page romance with 180 pages of random vignettes from past books characters and previews of future books shoved in Worse, the 200 pages was written like it was part of a 400 page romance complete with secondary characters and a large cast So even those 200 pages were diluted Aka this author is her own worst enemy She has so many characters and she tries to write them all without stopping to finish the story she is currently on She feels the need to constantly introduce and setup all these characters now, even though they aren t important, because she is already onto the next 5 books and needs to hurry up and get there Strangely this doesn t make the book feel rushed It makes it feel BORING Like here is a character, and here is a character, and here is another character, oh and here is another character, lets not forget this other character, oh or that one and that one and that one, can I stop and talk about this couple from 3 books ago for another 20 pages Okay back to talking about the main character, and also here is another character And oh lets focus on the character for 3 books from now and maybe the one for 20 books from now, and back to the main story Where we talk aboutcharacters.Seriously Stop Keep a profile of your characters for yourself Don t pollute the current story with everyone A unique and a total surprise with this installment It caught me off guard and was a rare treat I love the Thunder Creek series just like I ve loved most all the others by Robyn Carr Whenever I m in need of a comfort read, her books are an immediate go to. Much better.Finally no teenage angst I hate writing negative reviews I always try to look for something positive in every book I read and review For this one, the cover is the only positive thing about it for me, which goes to show that you probably shouldn t always rely on a nice picture on the cover before reading a book.This was one of the most drearily dull romances I ve read in ages Reading it felt like watching the most tedious soap opera that ever existed in the history of TV, and I was tempted to pinch myself to reassure I hate writing negative reviews I always try to look for something positive in every book I read and review For this one, the cover is the only positive thing about it for me, which goes to show that you probably shouldn t always rely on a nice picture on the cover before reading a book.This was one of the most drearily dull romances I ve read in ages Reading it felt like watching the most tedious soap opera that ever existed in the history of TV, and I was tempted to pinch myself to reassure myself that, yes, I was alive.It is set in a small town called Thunder Point in Oregon, which is a great name, but alas is actually a creepily perfect community, rather akin to Stepford as in, Stepford Wives Every single inhabitant has had a hard knock life, although they are all blissfully happy now, a revelation which made me wander if they were all taking some kind of drug no mention in the book , one side effect of which was to kill off people, because it felt that Thunder Point had a higher than average spousal death rate I mean, anywhere that your new neighbors of less than a week always greet you with a hug, like you are their long loss child, strikes me as very, very odd and not a little bit surreal.So, what else didn t I like There is a cast of thousands There were Macs and Coopers and Erics and Lous and Sarahs and, well, so many people, all with such similar charactesr, that I lost count and lost interest It was just too difficult to keep track of them all The heroine was a huge wet blanket She has a pretty sad backstory but then, everyone did, so you couldn t say it was stand out awful, just depressing , and really, nothing good had happened to her ever, but having a dripping wet heroine doesn t really make for a compulsive story There has to be something in a character to hook you in and not only wish better for them, but to believe that they have the guts to grab that something better Now, choosing Laine one of the other characters as the heroine would probably have made for a fabulous story, but no, we re stuck with Devon The writing is boring, boring, boring This author has churned as a lot of books none of which I ve previously read, so I m not prejudiced , but there is practically no style, no flow, nothing to pull you in and make you care It was a long chronological screed of what a long list of characters did.1 star I didn t like it 2.5 StarsOverall Opinion I was bummed by this I think I made a major mistake in not reading these books in order There was a lot of side stories going on and time spent focusing on side characters and what seemed like follow up from the other books I ended up skimming a lot because of that, because I honestly didn t care much about those things because they were underdeveloped for me since I hadn t read the other books I also didn t connect to the characters or feel their connection to each 2.5 StarsOverall Opinion I was bummed by this I think I made a major mistake in not reading these books in order There was a lot of side stories going on

enough time was spent on their development of feelings I kept on getting things like summaries of their time spent together in past tense and I hate that I want to experience them falling in love Instead it felt like I was simply told they fell in love.hope that makes sense.Brief Summary of the Storyline This is Devon and Spencer s story Devon ran away with her young daughter from the

characters in 3rd person narrative.Overall Pace of Story Good I skimmed some of the side character stories, but like I said before, I think it was because I hadn t read those books.Instalove Yes I
