cover45733-medium#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr returns to Thunder Point with an uplifting story about overcoming loss and finding unexpected love 

Scott Grant has a bustling family practice in the small Oregon community of Thunder Point. The town and its people have embraced the widowed doctor and father of two, his children are thriving, and Scott knows it’s time to move on from his loss. But as the town’s only doctor, the dating pool is limited. That is, until a stunning physician’s assistant applies for a job at his clinic. 

Peyton Lacoumette considers herself entirely out of the dating scene. She’s already been burned by a man with kids, and she’s come to Thunder Point determined not to repeat past mistakes. When Scott offers her a job, at a much lower salary than she’s used to, Peyton is surprisingly eager to accept…at least for now. She’s willing to stay for a three-month trial period while she explores other options. 

Scott and Peyton know the arrangement is temporary—it isn’t enough time to build a real relationship, never mind anything with lasting commitment. But love can blossom faster than you think when the timing is right, and this short visit just might hold the promise of forever.

This series is so realistic and interesting and very addictive.  Like the rest of the books, The Promise is all about the characters – smart, sexy Dr Grant and sassy, independent Peyton.  They have to decide if they want to take the chance on each other and if they can make their lives fit together.

Like most of the people in Thunder Point, both Scott and Peyton are somewhat new to town.  Scott’s been there a couple of years and Peyton is making a stop on her way to her next thing … whatever that may be.  The majority of their troubles comes from some scars that Peyton carries from her last relationship, along with her choice on what to do with her life.  As with any Thunder Point couple, these problems are normal and every day, something you would expect a friend to experience.

We also get updates on some of our other favorite characters as well as a preview of what we can expect to see in The Homecoming.  I think that’s one of the things I like best about these books – we get new characters and old characters, helping to enhance that small town feeling.  These people quickly become good friends and you want to know everything about them – their ups and downs, their happiness and troubles.  You feel like you are taking their journey with them and it is what brings you coming back for more.

If you haven’t read a Thunder Point book before, that’s ok – you can start here … but you are definitely missing out on something great.
