I have read many ofRobyn Carr's books and I don't believe she is the author of this series. The style of these books is the polar opposite of all her ealier writing. These characters are flat with very little depth. The story is like a recital in a rush to get to the end. And boy do they end fast. This one, in my opinion, ended right in rhe middle of a conversaton. Her Virgin River series was fantastic and I imagine it would be hard to top that. This series feels like a remake of the Virgin River books, only a very, very poor remake. I hope to see better work from Robyn Carr down the road. I gave it two stars because her name is on the cover but I believe a ghost writer wrote these books.

The romance in this novel is intricate and breathtaking, yet still tasteful.  Carr leaves so much to the imagination while painting a vivid picture for you.  You can easily picture the beauty of the coast.  Although Carr definitely tells a riveting story that you won’t be able to forget, there is also a calming quality about it.  You’re immersed in the slower, friendlier pace of life in Thunder Point.  It was very refreshing.   Carr approaches this novel in a very unique way.  If you’re returning to the series, you feel like you’re being welcomed back.  Everyone is as warm and inviting as they were on your last visit.  Those who are just beginning to read it with this novel feel like the newcomer to a small town.  You get introduced to the town and everyone in it in a very low-key manner, allowing you to absorb this coastal town.   I found it impossible not to imagine myself in the main character’s place.  I couldn’t even fathom how I would handle it.  I had to give her cudos for not only walking away, but for coming back strong afterwards.  The male lead is completely flawed but absolutely perfect.  He’s so  genuine that you can’t help but fall for him.  I also enjoyed how feeling came into play for these characters.  Their relationship wasn’t all lust & whirlwinds.  You really found out their hopes, dreams, and fears.  They approached things with their heads & their hearts.  It made for a very balanced story.   I always find myself intrigued with Carr’s character names.  They’re never mainstream, making you really stop to look at the character.  At the same time, they aren’t so unique that you have a hard time remembering (or worse yet, pronouncing) them.   As a whole this was an absolutely breathtaking novel that I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone, whether you’ve read Robyn Carr’s work before or not.  In fact, I urge you to go buy a copy today.  This is definitely one that I’ll be rereading multiple times. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

I loved Scott and Peyton's book and coming back to Thunder Point to catch up on all the couples and other residents I have come to know and love in this fabulous series. Scott is my version of a lovely man; he loves his children and his patients and is supportive of every person and patient he meets. His commitment to providing medical assistance to the town of Thunder Point makes him irresistible to me. Peyton has reasons to be wary of her judgement when it comes to men but eventually there is no way she can resist Scott. I know I would grab hold of him and his darling children and never let go. The Lacoumette family is a delicious part of this story and I found them wild, raucous and full of life, just as Scott as his children do. The great writing, characters that come to life on the page, and the beautiful location of Thunder Point are why I keep coming back to Robyn Carr's books. They always take me on a wonderful adventure of the heart.

#5 in the Thunder Point series. I agree the style was different from the first 4. Also, I tried, but I could not warm up to Peyton.

Finally the good Doctor gets his book. And we learn a little more about Devon in this one also. A great addition to the Thunder Point series.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings The next book in the Thunder Point series and not my absolute favorite, but I absolutely adore the creative ways that Robyn Carr brings new characters to this small town!  Peyton comes to town to escape a previous relationship that ended really poorly and she wants a moment to catch her breath and find a new path.  Of course she stops in this small town in Thunder Point and her stay may be longer than she first imagined! I loved this coupling, but at times I was confused by their ups and downs.  I wanted the best for them and assumed it would work out, but they were just a little wishy washy for me!  The one thing I loved in this book was the increase of updates on other couples; for some reason I felt like I heard more than in previous books about the previous couples that I had loved so much!  I wouldn't mind a book that had mostly updates instead of a whole new couple and story.

nothing terribly exciting....cute story from beginning to end...corny at times...repetitive "why did I do it?...why did I not" style....the description of Thunder Point made me want to be there...the town itself, the townsfolk were real people living their real lives....the farmfolk also seemed like people you wanted to know....and the food descrips were mouthwatering....

I read the second book in the series first; not knowing it was a series. Then I had to buy all the rest.
