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.

Another wonderful romance wrapped in a small town. Loved it. It is a Robyn Carr book. What more needs to be said.    Note: Unlike the Virgin River series, the sex is behind closed doors so if that is not enough for you, this book isn't what you want.

Can I just say wow! I have liked Eric from the start, he proves that your past doesn't have to define your future. Absolutely loved him and Laine together. The  Story line with Laine's dad and his alzheimers brought tears to my eyes as it was so realistic, having family members with it made it really hit home. Also loved the side story with Al and Ray Anne. Hope future books keeps us up to date on that relationship and also the future of the Russell kids. I absolutely loved this story , it had so many elements to it. My favorite so far, and I have loved all Robyn's books. Anxiously waiting the next in this series.

As with other books by Robyn Carr, this book is just simply easy reading. Well rounded characters and a full plot fill this little town. Robyn Carr has a way of taking all of your problems and worries away for a little while and takes you away to the beach. I am on pins and needles waiting for her next book to be released! I would recommend all of Robyn Carr's Virgin River Series!!!

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. 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.

I loved this book and I love the series... Ms. Carr is one of my top five authors or, as I call her, a story teller... IMO a good book is like someone telling you a story and Ms Carr does that with style, compassion and realism...I knew that Eric was going to have his "day" and I can't believe what a super guy he turned out to be... I also guessed that Laine was going to have a story... But I never guessed that they would come together but did they ever... While their relationship was tested in a number of ways they were destined to be together... The introduction of Al and his budding relationship with Ray Anne came as a surprise since Ray Anne was kinda "dingy" in previous stories... Laine's fathers slide into dementia was sad but awakening to those of us getting "long of tooth"... All in all a wonderful book and a foundation for future stories by this gifted writer.. But, do things right and Start With Book One of this Series - You Won't Be Sorry....

Did not find it very enlightwning or interesting. Not my usual genre but wanted to try something merely entertaining. I found it to be kind of dull.

Another terrific edition of life in Thunder Point, with many of the same characters found in the first three books along with several newcomers to this endearing coastal town that welcomes everyone with open arms. My favorite thing about this series is the instant emotional connection I feel with the characters from the very first page. Eric is a lonely figure trying to recover from his past and Laine is recuperating from an injury she sustained in the line of duty with the FBI. Meanwhile, Al gets involved with a family struggling to survive and stay together while he battles his own demons. Multilayered characters and exceptional writing always keep me engrossed in every new adventure Robyn Carr writes.

I'm loving this series. Another great episode in the Thunder Point. The author is talented in assigning unique characteristics to each person in the stories. However, I appreciate how previous persons of earlier episodes are reintroduced so that the reader can keep up with them. I wish that I had read all of the series in order, but I can still enjoy reading each one. LA-TXN

This is the type of novel that you put an emotional investment into. Carr weaves a story about life, love, and everything that comes with it. The poignant look into the lives of her characters drew me into the tale, while the realistic outlook and portrayal allowed me to live it. The notion that life doesn’t always go the way that you planned, but following your heart turns out in the end really gave me hope. Carr paints every aspect of Thunder Point for her readers, making them part of the town. And not only does the scenery come to life, the entire town does. The melding of everyone’s lives in this intimate town doesn’t go unnoticed. This novel kept me emotionally, intellectually and imaginatively engaged while showing both the good and the bad that comes of families and illness. Carr has filled this novel with emotionally engaging characters. Laine & Eric make quite the couple. Her need for her family’s approval and her recovery from her time with The Fellowship combined in a manner that I couldn’t help but envy her, even if the situation wasn’t a happy one. Her strength of character in the face of so many different types of adversity was fantastic. Eric’s reinvention of himself over time is something that gave me hope. I loved how caring he was with everyone around him. Even though these two main characters captured my heart, I loved getting to know Al & Rae Anne’s stories. These two were so much fun and so different from everyone we normally meet in contemporary romances. Once again Carr has created a novel that made me laugh & cry. I could barely put this one down. It was absolutely fantastic. I can’t wait for more from this series.

I have enjoyed several of Robyn Carr's Thunder Point Series book and loved them all.

Please read Robyn Carr is an excellent writer, and she makes you feel like you could be a part of the books. I am from a small town and can relate to a lot of things written in the books. As I read the books I find myself laughing out loud at things in the books, and I have also found myself crying at things in the books. You will not be disappointed.

Book 4 of the Thunder Point series. Jumped into the middle of this series. But it wasn't a problem. References to other people or events was explained well enough. And the main story was very well covered. Even some times, a little too much detail. Often the reader was well aware of what was being thought or seen without even more details or dialogue. Generally, I like more dialogue in my reading. But if it is only repeating or saying the obvious, not so much. Laine and Eric were a terrific couple. There were a couple of unlikely turns in their relationship. And its not often that the female is the alpha member of the couple. But they make a good couple it seems. I was kind of surprised at the side story of Al & Rae. Now they could have made a fantastic story. So much mystery. Deep held in feelings from both of them. I have requested another from the series at the library. This one was surely good enough to explore further in the series

Great Series. This so far has been my favorite. Eric and Lane's story has it all.
