Giveaway + Review THE WANDERER by ROBYN CARR




Book Description

March 26, 2013 Thunder Point


From Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Virgin River novels, comes Thunder Point—the highly anticipated new series that will make you laugh, make you sigh, and make you fall in love with a small town filled with people you'll never forget.

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land's unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he's been left an old friend's entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community's destiny in his hands.

Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.

MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

Hank Cooper is left his friend Ben's bar / bait shop In Thunder Point,  after he dies in Virgin River.  Sarah (search and rescue helicopter pilot) and her younger brother, Landon have also just moved there and there is an immediate connect between Cooper and Landon.  Sarah and Cooper find themselves in a romance while Gina (single mom) and Mac (the local deputy) add a secondary romance to the mix.  There is a mystery surrounding Ben's death and between this and the introduction and set up of the new location, the local love life is pushed a bit to the background until the last part of the book.  Oh, and Landon even at sixteen, wasn't left out of the romance department which added a fun element to the story.


Carr has done it again, borrowing a bit from her Virgin River series to get this small town romance set up and filled with hope for more to come.  Her stories always have a bit of humor mixed in with a mystery to keep you wanting to know what happens next.  They are usually pretty addicting and I have read the last once through out the years.  Most of her characters become old friends and I have high hopes for this new series.  I really want to visit the new locations since the coast in Oregon sounds so inviting.  Mac and Gina will be the focus of the next installment, The Newcomer.
