Also, it's a little choppy - a character (Cooper) is added in the middle of the book and he has no relationship to or scenes with the primary characters (Tom & Nora) except that they are in the same small town. He's introduced as a guest of Lucas's, who also doesn't have any scenes with Tom or Nora. As any experienced romance reader will know, this must be Ms. Carr introducing the Hero for the next book. While this is common, it's done very choppily here and I found myself skipping over this section of the book because it had nothing to do with the H/h or plot of this one. Again, this felt poorly thought out and executed, it was as if the author realized she needed to set up the next story and was in a rush to meet a deadline. A little more finesse, and the sections on Coop and Lucas would have made much more sense.
This was the second Robyn Carr book I've read - I don't recommend it as a first read. I started with Katie and Dylan's romance in Redwood Bend and thought I was hooked on a new author (for me, at least). Now, I'm not so sure. I liked Tom & Nora's story but am not sure I want to invest more time in another Virgin River story only to have it not live up to its potential.
There was not much with the town at all. A little with Noah helping Nora in the beginning but not much. There was a side story with Luke's army buddy Hank that was also boring and just didn't fit into the story right. If he has a book coming out next I am not going to be jumping to read the day its released.
All & all it was an okay book. More than an emotional journey for Nora than a romance. There was really no drama and little action except for a couple of bears. I normally have read my past Virgin River series books over again when I need a good book to read(I love the Riodian family) but I don't think I will be able to reread this one.
I read Sunrise Point in essentially one sitting. I love the characters and the genteel charm of Virgin River. Nora reminds me a lot of someone very close to me and I admire her strength of character and her determination. I absolutely hated Darla, the widow of a Marine buddy of Tom's. She was just not what Tom or anyone in Virgin River needed. Sunrise Point is a delicate and delectable romance, filled with great characters in a wonderful town. I sometimes wish I lived in a place like Virgin River. It just goes to show - what you think you want is not always what you truly need.

Tom Cavanaugh owns an apple orchard outside of Virgin River,needs apple pickers, and lives in a wonderful home with his grandmother, Maxie.
Now, if you've read any of the Virgin River series by Robyn Carr, you'll know that chances are good that Nora and Tom just MIGHT have a chance at romance (picking apples together causes that, you know).
I love this series by Carr (and all her books) and this book is no exception.
