    Story
    "Robyn Carr continues to Awe inspire me."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hero to be better than the print version?

    with audio you get the emotions that come with closing your eyes and seeing it played out. Sometimes I just love to read, and others, I just love to listen and put myself right inside the book.


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

    Robyn has a way of writing the Thunder Point series like her Virgin River series. But I got to say, I dearly love Thunder Point with each book she writes this series gets better.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    Ms. Plummer is one of my two fav's when listening to books. As a female. She can do all the voices and you have no problem of understand who she is while talking. She is Amazing and I dearly love to listen her.


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

    Yes, I did, laugh and cry. I think so far is my fav of the books in the Thunder Point series.


    Any additional comments?

    First let me say this. This is not erotica. I started out reading Robyn Carr's books years ago. Of course it's still a little hard to go back to just fiction book, expect when it's Robyn's Thunder Point series. You have suspense, drama, clean romance, all the sweetness of dear friends that look after one another. I dearly love her books. . But with this book, I didn't leave it all day. Yep, never let go. And it's like that with her books. This book starts out dark, unsure of what is to come. If you want to read this book, I suggest you please read her other Thunder Point books. The Wanderer, The Newcomer, and The Hero. this one I just read. They will make more sense of understanding the closeness of this small Oregon town. A town that adores the beaches and each other and how they let no one down when they need a helping hand. It's hard to see the suffering in this one, but I had to remember when they are at and what they are all going to do for this girl that find her way to Thunder Point. Best thing that ever happens to her. It's a town I would love to live in. In the Hero, it's not who you suspect, as the Hero, you figure it out in the last 45 minutes of this book. Someone who is at ease with everything rears his head and takes over to protect what he feels is an unjust thing that is going on near his town. And it was. I cannot tell you, if you want a warm and fuzzy book to love and where can fall in love will all of them. This Book is for you..The entire series is. I could not wait for this one to arrive and once I did, I got everything done early and late so I could have it all to myself. I don't do that but with a couple of my books. This series is one of them. The town of Thunder Point has some of the best stories to tel. Join them and start with the first and book, and it your in a mind to, read them all. I love my Romance/ Erotica Books, no doubt, and can't wait to find the next one. but when this hit the stands, it clears my head and reminds me that sometimes we just need to pay it forward.

    Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.

    "Great book and great to listen to"
    Where does The Hero rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I like the fact that the love hero is flawed like everyone but have to say that there was more than one hero in this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    How even at the end people rose above themselves to save the day.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the heroine said 'I'll do this only once'.


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

    Love wins out.


    Any additional comments?

    This whole series of books is excellent and the writing is enhanced by the wonderful narrator. If only all authors and publishers picked as well.

    I think when an author puts out a really, really great series, then goes on to other things, it is just hard not to compare. I love Robyn Carr and I do like this series. It has all the right stuff. Great characters, interesting plots even if slightly predictable. It just isn't virgin river. I know that is wrong of me but sorry I just can't help it.

    Story
    "boring"
    What disappointed you about The Hero?

    Predictable story, you could know the hole story from the beginning


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    something else


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was good but the story wasn't


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Hero?

    Difficult to say as it was hard to go on listening and finish the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely not the best book of the author.

    Story
    "I keep reading"
    If you could sum up The Hero in three words, what would they be?

    "needs more excitement" or "way too predictable"


    If you’ve listened to books by Robyn Carr before, how does this one compare?

    They are all relatively the same. Different characters, but mostly same story line.


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

    Therese has a wonderful voice for these books. I enjoy her interpretation.


    Any additional comments?

    When does the next one come out? ha ha

    "Did not like the Heroine - Love the Town"
    What did you like best about The Hero? What did you like least?

    Escapes a cult, gets several helping hands, goes on a bad date and falls in love. It would have been great if she had rescued someone, but does not do anything proactive about the other women in the cult until forced. I loved Rolee, Spencer and the previous characters/romances but wish Devon had some spunk.
