Welcome to Thunder Point. When you open the pages of The Chance, you feel like you are pulled into Home Town USA. The people are friendly and are willing to lend a helping hand. 

The Chance is FBI agent Laine Carrington's and ex-con Eric Gentry's story. Laine is looking for a place to rehabilitate after a near fatal shooting. Eric came to Thunder Point to get to know his teenage daughter. But when the two meet, an unlikely attraction thrives. Unexpected circumstances and family tragedy threaten to drive them apart but through it all it is an utter sweet and tender romance.

Carr also toys with us by giving us details into a secondary/side story. I have to admit I was more drawn to the secondary story and am looking forward to seeing this plot come to fruition. 

The Chance is an endearing romance taking us to a place where we'd call our neighbors friends and the local diner is the town meeting place. Open the pages and take a trip to Thunder Point, you won't regret the trip.

I received this ARC copy of The Chance from Harlequin MIRA in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication February 25, 2014.

Too depresssing

After having read and loved the Virgin River series, I find this series dull and this book depressing. This book ended abruptly, almost mid-sentence.

Another complaint is that she seems to be trying to bring awareness to too many social/health issues in one short book...

Another complaint is that she seems to be trying to bring awareness to too many social/health issues in one short book.
It's overwhelming! So far throughout the series, and mostly in this book, she has covered Alzhimer's, MS, homeless vets, VA, suicidal teen, pancreatic cancer, dyslexia, ptsd, CIDS, foster care, GED, cults, teen pregnancy, marijuana growers/dealers, high school dropouts, bi-ratial relationship, family conflict and home health care issues. Oops, she forgot to mention Parkinson's Disease, lung cancer, childhood obesity and heart disease. Sadly, the list could go on and on.

I've dealt with many of these social issues during my 28 year career in social services. As the primary caregiver for an aging parent with Parkinson's Disease, I deal with the incompetence of a home health care agency on a weekly basis. I've also lost family and friends to many of the above listed illnesses.

I read for relaxation and entertainment!!! I want to briefly, through the pages of a good book, escape from the harsh realities of life. Sorry, but this style of writing is not for me.
