Top Customer Reviews
Carr is a master raconteur. She has a talent for bringing characters alive and describing small-town life so well.
She has started a new series about the small coastal town of Thunder Point, Oregon, and allows us readers to peek into the lives of a few of its residents.
Cooper drives into town pulling his fifth wheel toy hauler. He is following up on a call that says his old friend Ben has died under mysterious circumstances. And he finds that Ben has left him a beat-up bar/bait shop/multi-purpose falling-down facility and 200 acres of prime beachfront property.
Sarah is a rescue helicopter pilot for the U.S. Coast Guard, has fairly recently gone through a nasty divorce, and has been raising her younger brother for years.
And these are just two of the fully developed characters that Carr lets us get to know intimately. Deputy Yummy Pants with kids of his own, Gina who works at the diner and who is raising a daughter, a new doctor in town, some slimeball teenage bullies...and more.
There are a few times that Virgin River is mentioned and the Riordan family and I was afraid I'd miss my old friends there but Carr has given us a new community to enjoy with a full cast of delightful characters inhabiting it. It is great fun and I am already looking forward to reading The Newcomer (Thunder Point) coming out in June 2013 and The Hero (Thunder Point) coming out in August 2013.
The primary male lead, Cooper, is the "Wanderer". Never commits. Never settles in one place. Lives in a towable trailer and likes it that way. He ends up in Thunder Point to settle the estate of an old Army buddy. I never really warmed up to him. The female lead, Sarah, is a Coast Guard helicopter pilot, raising her teen-age brother, and recently divorced from a philandering husband. She's actually pretty likeable, but she scarcely appears in the story until well into the book. Then they connect with the intention of having a short-lived affair since Cooper plans to depart within a month or two. It never really develops. Since this is a romance novel, you know they aren't just going to part in the end, and so they don't. But, you also don't get the feeling that there's much there.
A lot of the dialogue just seemed to drag on and on, without adding much to the story. The plot is okay, but also a bit disjonted.
The most interesting characters, and the ones who are apparently going to be central to the ongoing series, are the Deputy Sherriff, Mac, and the waitress from the diner, Gina.Read more ›

If you are looking for a clean book, move on. Sex is about the only thing the couple had in common. I read to the end and skipped over the dirty stuff to get there. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Amazon Customer
