Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Predictable"
    Would you listen to The Chance again? Why?

    Probably not. Robyn Carr has at least 3 book series that are all written using the same formula. They all involve a quaint little town filled with people who are super neighborly, a town that is so wonderful to live in that even nomads don't want to leave, the people strongly believe in second chances and as you get to know them you discover that they are great communicators -even the men. And then some stranger happens along and for all the reasons previously mentioned decides to stay and fall in love.

    The first series I read by Robyn Carr is Virgin River. I loved that series and I did reread a couple of those books. But now, the novelty has worn off and I didn't really connect with The Chance on a level deep enough to make me want to read it again.


    What does Therese Plummer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I will never completely bash a narrators performance, but I will admit that I don't really care for Therese Plummers narrations. It's a matter of personal preference, but she over enunciates her words. She rolls every "r" and crosses every "t". She should lighten up a bit.

    On the flip, side she's dramatizes the scenes pretty well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.

    "Just boring."

    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.

    Story
    "Robyn Carr Captures us in Thunder Point again!"
    What did you love best about The Chance?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Chance?

    Possible when Laine's father showed up at her door.


    Which character – as performed by Therese Plummer – was your favorite?

    It's hard to pick Just one. Eric or Laine. I really Like Al too.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Life continues - - - -"
    Would you listen to The Chance again? Why?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eric because he had overcome so many hurdles and would always be a decent working guy.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to many of Therese Plummer's other performances, and as usual, they are always a treat


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I had to cut it to two sittings.

    Would you listen to The Chance again? Why?

    without a doubt


    What did you like best about this story?

    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


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Walls were meant to be broken

    "Entertaining story"

    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.

    "Love this author and series!"
    Would you listen to The Chance again? Why?

    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!


    What other book might you compare The Chance to and why?

    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.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good book, Not too Sappy"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Chance to be better than the print version?

    I didn't ready the print version


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed all of them, but I liked the character of Laine and her different family relationships. It was easy to nod my head and say "I can see that"


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and she is fantastic. Sometimes I search by her name only to find a book because I enjoy her so much. She does a great job of making each character distinctly different.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, but I usually avoid books that are going to cause extreme reactions. I might smile or chuckle at something but I purposely don't read something that is going to be sad. To me, a book is about escaping reality and I don't want to ready about murder, death, etc.


    Any additional comments?

    I've really enjoyed Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer. I've listened to the entire Virgin River Series and The Grace Valley trilogy.
