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.

    "I'm loving Robyn Carr's new series!"

    Once again Robyn Carr gives us an interesting small town to read about. Like in Virgin River, the town of Thunder Point has characters you want to know more about. I'm looking forward to learning what happens next. Therese Plummer does a great job as always.

    Story
    "One of the Best!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is one of the best starts to a series I have encountered in a long time. The author's "voice", along with the narrator's voice, makes this one quite the treat. Every character is interesting and the story never drags. All you want is to know more about everyone and you end up with the feeling that everyone you're rooting for is someone you're supposed to root for. I love it and I can't wait for the next one - literally, I can't wait!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters.


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    She is the absolute BEST.


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

    In a little known town, you may find exactly what you didn't even know you were looking form.

    "Carr Genre"

    I enjoyed this story enough for the credit. It was somewhat different than the mulitude of romance books by RC. In my opinion Summer in Sonoma was the only book I have read by her that moves out of the well worn path. These are interesting characters. I love Therese Plummer's narration but maybe if another voice were reading the story would seem different. I liked it. I listened to it. And hey, I'm pretty certain I couldn't write a story. Worth the credit.

    Story
    "A new location for Robyn Carr romance!"
    If you could sum up The Wanderer in three words, what would they be?

    Charming, picturesque, enjoyable.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Speed it up.


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

    Landon


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

    It left me with a cozy feeling, a smile of my face and a desire to read the next two in the series.


    Any additional comments?

    The story has a slow start before any romance gets started. There are four romances in this story of a variety of ages. As in the Virgin River series, the introduction of a character in this book is a teaser for upcoming sequels.

    If you could sum up The Wanderer in three words, what would they be?

    Fun, fast-moving,


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

    This is the first one. She was quite entertaining.


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

    Most definitely. I only listen to books driving to and from work and I found myself wanting to listen to this one while I was in the house.

    "Perfect"

    The combination of Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer is just magical. My only complaint is that there aren't enough books. I've run out. Robyn Carr writes light and interesting. I can't stop listening. Therese Plummer is the most talented narrator I've heard. She amazes me the way she switches voices, and she's so much fun to listen to. I'm just waiting for the next book. Oh - one more thing. I thought at first that it was going to be predictable, but it wasn't. That was a very pleasant surprise. I don't want to give away the plot. Loved this book.

    "Woo Hoo - Another Great Series"

    Oh how I love Robyn Carr.

    Her characters are immediately loveable and relatable. Her books are as good as a big hug from a life-size cuddly toy. Every time I read one of her stories I want to go and live in the town and be amongst people I've gotten to know so well.

    Many thanks for the excellent narration of Therese Plummer as she knows how to bring a story to life.

    "Carr does it again!!"
    Would you listen to The Wanderer again? Why?

    Yes! Anything Robyn Carr writes just sucks you in...you totally get caught up in the small town world with multiple characters. Loved it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cooper but also Mac. Cooper learns a lot about himself. Mac is so dang oblivious!


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

    Def Cooper


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

    Allow the swirl of the wind, water and wonder of of love in a small town to sweep you away.

    "Another winner by Robyn Carr...."

    I can hardly wait for more. Jumping off from Virgin River series into a new series with new characters, and a new environment. But same great stories, and Therese Plummer does a great job narrating as usual.
