The first book in Carr’s new Thunder Point series brings with it all the attributes that made her Virgin River series resonate with readers. It features a quietly heroic military veteran, an independent young woman, a talented but troubled teen, and a community of genuinely nice folks with a few bad apples. Thunder Point, on Oregon’s rocky coast, has its charms, but Hank Cooper just wants to find out how his old friend Ben Bailey died and then get out of town. That is, until he learns that he’s inherited Ben’s “bait shop”—basically a rundown bar—along with a good stretch of undeveloped waterfront property that is not in any shape to be sold; additionally, Hank doesn’t really believe that Ben’s death was accidental. When Landon Dupre, high-school quarterback and new kid in town, is bullied on Ben’s beach, Hank steps in and meets his sister, Sarah, a Coast Guard helicopter pilot. Carr has created another community where readers will want to spend time getting to know its inhabitants. --Diana Tixier Herald
