    Story
    "Fan of Robyn Carr"

    I liked this audiobook, however the book description was a little misleading. I expected more of a love story between Mac and Gina, along with how they worked their families into a whole. This was not the case.
    This story is a continuation of Cooper and Sarah's romance and their issues, which might i say was great and excellent to listen to. I felt a lot more invested in them in this story. Having listened to the first in the series I now understand that it is going to be about the community of Thunder Point more than the romance of individual characters.
    Carr also brought teen love and heartache into this story. I actually cried for Ashley!!! I have children so for this to happen to one would be devastating. I really think Carr nailed it, the emotions, the out of control feelings of an adolescent.
    I have to add that if you are new to the Thunder Point series?, listen to The Wanderer (book 1) first as you will have a better understanding of the community and what Robyn Carr is trying to achieve in her novels.
    Lastly, and I know I always say this, but Therese Plummer is my favourite narrator, she is fantastic for this series and anything of hers I have listened to I have thought a better book due to her.

    "Well worth the credit"

    I am a fan of Robyn Carr and have enjoyed everyone of her books that I have read or listened to. This book is no exception. It has a great story line and is equally enjoyable on its own or with others in the series.

    Story
    "Felt like a sequel"

    While the Virgin River series just built upon the general relationships, this story was exclusively just a continuation of those started in the Wanderer. It started off with all sorts of things going wrong, and didn't ever reach the laugh out loud, sweet moments I so love with her books. I'll continue reading the series, but they won't be the first thing I download anymore.

    Story
    "a charming tale"

    Carr takes up the first novel in this series and continues the story, giving us a few dozen new twists and turns that I could never have imagined. The same easy going writing style that we’ve come to know and love from this author is present along with some rather large emotional kicks. One of the best parts about this novel is how all-encompassing it is. Love & heartache do come to the forefront, but there are so many individuals involved and who care for each other in their day to day lives that it’s priceless.

    The cast in Thunder Point grows by leaps in bounds in this instalment. This not only happens in size, but also in the characters themselves. The younger cast goes through some growing pains, helping them become the individuals who will be able to make it in the world. The adults however, go through personal changes on an even higher level. The growth yet stability that is present in so many of these characters is breathtaking. I also love how Carr takes one of the main characters and shows how he changes from being ‘the wanderer’ to being ‘the newcomer.’

    As a whole this was an emotionally intense tale that draws you in and leaves you with a sense of satisfaction. You really become part of this community, and don’t want to leave it at the end of the book. It’s a good thing there’s still more to come from Thunder point.

    "Perfect - Just Perfect"


    No one writes mature, intelligent novels with real characters like Robyn Carr. Reading one of her books is always like coming home.

    Therese Plummer breathes life into the words and together they are the perfect combination.

    Story
    "Loving this series!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's a wonderful story of people who become very much a part of me while i listen. Again in a small town where everyone seems to know each other's business but the characters involved. Captivating!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mac and Grace-both very good characters with history of families but haven't thought about dating. They are super great parents with charming personalities.


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

    Therese Plummer is close to number one in all narrations I've heard. She's gifted! Always superb.


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

    It held my interest and I listened as much as I could each day without missing anything.


    Any additional comments?

    Read this series in order. If you like small towns, people of long ago this series is for you. I found it delightful. I have now finished all that has been written including book 6.

    "Great Story"
    Would you listen to The Newcomer again? Why?

    Yes definitely.Lovely book and in time I would revisit it again.


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

    I would compare the whole Thunder Point series to Susan Mallery's Fools Gold series.


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

    I can't say I prefer her to reading the book but I love listening to any books she has narrated. She is brilliant.


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

    Yes. Usually I only listen when I am painting or crafting. With this book I wanted to keep on listening.

    "Good story - but Title and Description is wrong"
    Any additional comments?

    While the title and description describes a newcomer, we didn't see her till near the end. And I was never afraid that the newcomer would get the guy. Not. Even. For. A. Second. This is really the continuing story of the already established couples of Thunder Point. We see Cooper and Sarah, and Mac and Gina to great effect. The real stand out was Ashley's story. Her heartbreak and now she and her mom handled it was a real eye opener about the consequences of social media and dating. I loved the story. But the description was incorrect.
