Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Romance, 2014

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful. With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.

    Story
    "A modern day fairytale!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What I loved most about this book was that it is so real and could actually happen in an everyday situation. It was awesome!! I can't wait to dive into the rest of the series!


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

    When Mac & Gina finally come together and the final scene with Cooper and Sarah.


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

    They are all good!
    Rayann makes me LAUGH as I can so picture her clear as day.

    Story
    "started with book #4"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Wanderer to be better than the print version?

    I got hooked when I started with book #4 and didn't realize there was a series. As soon as I realized it, I was hooked already with the lives of those that I was hearing about in the novel. I listened to book number 1 and can not wait to listen to 2 and 3 or listen to them. I travel and I get so lost in the lives of these genuine folks that I really feel like they exist. It makes me want to travel to Oregon and visit.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have to say that in this story Cooper was my favorite character and then Gina, I loved how genuine they both were and how they both never swayed from who they were and how devoted they were in so many different ways!


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

    your able to get their personality right away without having to read pages and not knowing if they are real or shady


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

    Standup people always finish first

    "Not Bad Listening"
    What made the experience of listening to The Wanderer the most enjoyable?

    Robyn Carr usual simple but easy listening read.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Good pleasant


    What aspect of Therese Plummer’s performance would you have changed?

    Love her narration but she sounded just like the Virgin River characters and I had to stop and seperate them out in my mind. Still enjoy her characters.

    "Good low key drama"

    This is a good but low key drama about a small town where everyone knows each other. More than just a romance - humor and friendship along with a cute dog.

    "An Easy Listen"

    I was in the mood for easy romance without a lot of disaster or tricky twists - this series was exactly what I was looking for - a nice easy listen. Robyn Carr did a great job making her characters come alive and I enjoyed being immersed in the lives of the Thunder Point characters. I hope Robyn will add to this series as I don't believe the story ends just yet. Three cheers to Therese Plummer who did an excellent job with her narration and especially with her male voices. I vote that Therese continue to be the narrator on future Thunder Point books if the series continues. Robyn - please write more?

    Story
    "Thunder Point just might be the new Virgin River"
    What did you love best about The Wanderer?

    How Sarah and Coopers lives match up


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sarah's son. He is so strong to overcome the bullying and the relationship he has with the Deputies daughter. So young and innocent.


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

    I tend not to search out the authors, instead I find myself searching Therese Plummer to see what she has narrated. Love her voice, and love the way she brings the different characters to life.


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

    My heart broke for Landon when he was being bullying by Jag.


    Any additional comments?

    The introduction of so many different characters, I see story lines coming in all different directions. Can't wait for the next book.
