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.

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!
She is the absolute BEST.
In a little known town, you may find exactly what you didn't even know you were looking form.
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.
Charming, picturesque, enjoyable.
Speed it up.
It left me with a cozy feeling, a smile of my face and a desire to read the next two in the series.
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.
This is the first one. She was quite entertaining.
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.
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.
Yes, i enjoyed the story.
When the end was not the forever after finish of alot of books but the acceptance of life as it can be.
I enjoyed them all
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.
Yes! Anything Robyn Carr writes just sucks you in...you totally get caught up in the small town world with multiple characters. Loved it!
Cooper but also Mac. Cooper learns a lot about himself. Mac is so dang oblivious!
Allow the swirl of the wind, water and wonder of of love in a small town to sweep you away.
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.
Sweet, real, entertaining
Listening to Therese Plummer read Robyn Carr's contemporary novels is like sitting down to a meal that is complete with one's favorite dishes, but made with unexpected spices -- still good, but not always exactly the same.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the audio Virgin River series and the Grace Valley trilogy. Robyn Carr has clearly found her niche. I feel good about her characters and stories. They're all nice folks who are likeable (except any bad guys) and one can relate.
Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer go together like peanut butter & jelly.
