With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge. Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point. Although he's a man with a dark past, he's determined to put down roots and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious to everyone. But while the law enforcement agent and the reformed criminal want to make things work, their differences may run too deep; unless they take a chance on each other and find that deep and mysterious bond that belongs to those who choose love over fear.

I have listened to all of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and those were awesome. Everyone of them! But this series is just plain old boring. I'm not looking for a bunch of torchered souls but it would be nice to have some twists and turns. Maybe even a little chuckle. Just something. I kept hoping but nothing really exciting happens. Need to rename it "Pleasant Valley" because everyone is pleasant. I think I am done with this group. Sorry Ms. Carr. Still love ya, tho.
Therese Plummer is awesome, however.
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
I LOVE IT
ERIC~ he says it through the entire book.. Second chances do come our way.. And the Chance we take, is costly at times, and we much pay the price for what ever do we do in life, but it teaches us, we hope not to make the same mistakes again and we learn from them.. If you read this book.. Listen to what the Judge tells him ( Eric) when he is a teenager about the cost of being and doing wrong, and what is can cost you being at the wrong place and the wrong time..when you know better.. Eric was and it cost him time.....but the lesson here is what the judge says.... I'ts really good..
Therese Plummer is an excellent reader of Robyn's Books. Especially those from the Thunderpoint Series. She knows just how to bring everything to life with each charater.. she don't just read, she put's emotion, and herself into these books.. I have to say she is about the best when is comes to anything you wanted to bring forth in a book.. love it Way to Go.. Ms. Plummer.
Yes, when Lane is helping her father, whom she has been estranged from because of an arrgurment at Christmas time.. But the times she spends with him brings so much to light.
Once again Robyn Carr has a hit.. I have been waiting what seems like a year for anything from the Thunderpoint Series.. I love the town, (to bad I can't move there) and the personality she's given her new characters Lane and Eric is great,, They have one thing in common..which you will find out by reading the book.. it's good...
Robyn Carr gives us detailed scenes about who and what all Thunderpoint resident are and look like.... so that when we close our eyes you see them.. Her description of everyone is and always has been so articulated that I feel like I would know them if I went into town if it existed..
In this book, she brings Lane, the Hero FBI Operative who filtrated the cult near Thunderpoint and was shot saving them all but one, in the last of the series. Another great book.. She moved to Thunderpoint to heal, that arm. what was shot and operated on and she meets the gorgeous Eric, who can't get enough of her from day one.. He loves her sass and straight forwardness and wonders if he would ever have a chance of her looking his way.. But don't count Lane out.. she is a looker alright, and looking herself.. She loves the town and stays for a while to just relax and heal.. Things she loves is good people, her family, and loves to cook. but at the same time, she is looking for someone to help her get over what she went through with the rescue..In other words the cold nights and maybe to keep her warm as well.. Then She meets Eric, who we all know he is the x boyfriend of Max's (the sheriff's) wife. And they have a 16 year daughter. He came to TP to help her through college. Or at least choose one. He loves his daughter but would not mind having Lane near him. either for dinner or just kiss her once.. He is so smitten by her and she him.. . But he would never be that brazen. But Lane is not shy and goes after what ever she wants.. and Eric looks good to her.. The one liners they have in this is amazing.. Lane is one great addition to Thunderpoint. .
. Not a small town girl.. she waits.. and finally just goes after him saying.. If you can't ask me out.. I will do it. Eric has and owns a Garage, he and Lane just become a hot couple. They adore and compliment each other so.. But trouble is always somewhere.. But it's not where you think.. It's in Lane's family. she has a twin brother who took after Daddy, and is a doctor, but because she is FBI Daddy think she is blue collar worker and just missed the mark. and he don't appreciate what she does and who she saves.. But Eric, who is always got her back, and always there to help her through anything, listens and helps her along the way..
Also each and every one of our other TP characters from the start, we are brought up to speed with what is going on with them.. I love it when a author keeps us updated in the series.. WE learn some things about who we always wondered about..like out sexy Realtor who is always looking at every man.. Not saying.. gotta read about her.. It's good.. I so enjoyed this book, planning on buying the book and reading this time.. The Thunder Point Series has been enjoyable from day one.. It never disappoints and can't wait for the next one to arrive. Who doesn't want to live in Thunder Point.. where everyone is welcomed and everyone;s problems are as big as our own.... It just goes to show you how we can deal with them and how everything is approached in different ways.. Give you room to think.. . Again, the book is worth what ever you have to do to enjoy it. And oh by the way.. Some great , great Hot Bedroom scenes in this one.. Reminds me of the Cooper and Sara when they met.. And it's Hot.. I will say that.. .
Robyn Carr and Virgin River series and Grace Vally series and now Thunder Point series has been the best books I have listened to. I can't wait to see what comes next. Another Thunder Point book please...........................
The dual story line of Laine trying to prove herself to her father and find her new place in life and love. Robyn Carr Really wrote Laine's story with humor as well as touching poignancey which I truly enjoyed.
Possible when Laine's father showed up at her door.
It's hard to pick Just one. Eric or Laine. I really Like Al too.
Towards the end when Laine began to cry at the computer in Boston and her sister in law found her like that. She felt the situation was so hopeless. I was indeed very moved, to tears in fact.
I do recommend this book for romance readers but it is also a good book about a town, and overcoming family at odds, and interpersonal issues. The romance while there is just one of the plots not the overwhelming plot which is a nice.
Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".
Everything is starting to sound too familiar. Think I need a change of author.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Yes because it is so well written. From the way this installment is written to it's end, it makes a clear assessment of falling in love, into the initial stages of Alsheimers. In 2000 my mother began to display the same symptons as the doctor, so I knew exactly what they were going through.
Eric because he had overcome so many hurdles and would always be a decent working guy.
I have listened to many of Therese Plummer's other performances, and as usual, they are always a treat
Yes, but I had to cut it to two sittings.
I got into listening to audio books while traveling and now have found them a source of comfort day & night! Robyn Carr is my Fav
without a doubt
the trust factors between men and women is addressed and shows that it can be overcome but shows the real fear that both men and women can have regarding commitment
Eric surprised Lane out on the deck when he arrived early and she had been snuggled up on the chaise reading and he got in there with her behind her just warmed my heart, just sounded so natural and not a forced scene.
Walls were meant to be broken
Having listed to the first three books in the Thunder Point series, Robyn Carr has the ability to make you feel that you are among friends in each book. Its always nice to if briefly catch up on the characters from the former books.
I enjoyed The Chance with the main characters Laine, who we met in the last book & Eric too. We meet the surly teenager Justin who is struggling hard to keep his family together. Ray Ann has her own little side story.
Looking forward to more from Thunder Point.
Absolutely! Robyn Carr is great at developing characters and adding depth to every story. I would read any of her books a second and third time!
Any of the titles from the Virgin River series. Although her stories always end up in a nice, neat little package at the end (and isn't that what romance is all about anyway), it is usually a long, and realistic road to reach that point. I think this is part of the reason readers can easily identify with her characters.
As an avid audiobook listener, I've come to realize that not just anybody can bring a book to life. Therese Plummer has the perfect tone of voice that makes it easy to listen to.
If you're not familiar with Robyn Carr's writing, try another one. She's an author that I will automatically read without knowing anything about the book. Her stories have a lot of substance without all the trash.
Laine is a success ... except she fears, to her father.
Her father acts badly. She cuts him out of her life.
In ways that could happen to any of us.
This is a story that any father (me) with a daughter and any daughter with a father should read as a cautionary tale. Others will enjoy the carefully crafted world of Thunder Point, a place fill with real people. Good HEA
