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.

Although predictable - it was a pretty good read until the last couple of chapters which turned into explicit sex. Although, enjoy a good love story - the explicitness of the sexual encounters was just not in line with the rest of the story - I think more needed to be left to the imagination - otherwise enjoyable on the road read - Just don't have any kids within ear shot when listening the last couple chapters!
The story isn't as much about a single person falling in love as it is about an entire town and all the little twists and turns that happen in their lives.
I'm not quite sure why someone classified this book in the romance genre but whoever did it, couldn't have been more wrong. This wanderer guy the title hints that the story about is in maybe 1 hour of the 8 hour story. Yes he falls in love, but considering that's only a tiny part of the whole story, it make no sense why they even called the book that.
I thought this was the beginning of a cool murder/mystery series like Stone, but what I got was a lukewarm, boring, completely predictable story of small town characters who were really nice and nothing really bad ever happened unless you count the murder that occurs in the beginning that turns out not to count very much anyway.
I seriously threw up my hands and rolled my eyes at the ridiculous instant confession on the phone in the jail by the suspect! I mean, really!
I began the book hoping for an interesting character with a special tale of why he came back to Thunderpoint. I was let down and bored so stopped reading and returned it.
Gotten a better book to narrate.
If a book doesn't catch my interest right away it means it has no depth and I'll be bored.
The narrator's voice was just wrong for the protagonist- he was a decent guy who was given such a rough voicing that it was hard to keep listening
The ending was a little predictable
When the lead charactor stood up for Landon, the younger brother.
It was a bit hard to force myself to continue listening to the harsh voicing of the Cooper character...I was tempted to turn to the printed verrsion of this book due to the narration
I was so looking forward to this new Robin Carr series however, I was sadly disappointed. The characters were boring, the story was slow paced and the romance was lackluster.
Yes. WanttobecsurebI did not miss sword.
All robin Carr books. She grabs your attention
Inflection gives life to characters
Yes, but not possible.
Attention is paid to current concerns. Not just romantic fluff but substance.
I liked Cooper when I first met him visiting Virgin River. Getting to know him better in Thunder Point was not a disappointment. This series shows a lot of promise of more heartwarming, fun-loving, and a little crazy love in a small eccentric community. I can't wait to see whose next on the "hit" list. Thanks, Robyn.
I enjoyed the book and hope Miss Carr expands the series into a on going series as she did in the Virgin River Books The characters were real and the different emotions and difficulties they encounter during the story and their reactions were believeable
When Mac realize Gina was going on a date with the new doctor
I like the sound of her voice and the different inflection she uses to speak the different characters
yes because I enjoyed it but you can easily do it in more than one and still follow the story line without losing any of it
Another good one for Robyn Carr
I am really disappointed. I loved the Virgin Series and was excited about this book. It has been on my Iphone for over a month and I have tried at least 5 times to listen to it enough to get into it.
I just couldn't do it. The story and the characters bored me to tears. Even Therese Plummer couldn't warm it up enough for me to want to finish it.
It is rare for me to dump a book without finishing it. I'm afraid this one joined that limited collection.
