Share the joys, heartbreaks, challenges and triumphs of the people who inhabit the small Oregon town of Thunder Point with #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr 

With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge. 

Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point. Although he's a man with a dark past, he's determined to put down roots and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious to everyone. But while the law enforcement agent and the reformed criminal want to make things work, their differences may run too deep…unless they take a chance on each other and find that deep and mysterious bond that belongs to those who choose love over fear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from emotionally fulfilling 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A most enjoyable read!! As usual, a well written story that develops more of the Thunder Point community. Carr has introduced a new character Laine Carrington who has come to Thunder Point in order to heal and examine her life. Her characters are well developed and down to earth. I find that each of Carr's books weave many different characters and their lives into the original framework of the community. As the story progresses you are updated as to the happenings of past characters. Although I have read all of her books, each story stands alone and can be read individually or as part of the series. Once you have read any of her books in the series, you are hooked to read any that you haven't read as yet. Can hardly wait for the next saga to meet other characters in the town and to catch up with my favorites. Worth the price of admission.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy that I took A Chance on Robyn's Carr's latest novel. Another stellar offering from Robyn Carr.  It was so great to return to Thunder Pointe and catch up on all of its residents.  I truly loved the well developed characters and of course the happy ending.  A must for those books I read.  Laine has some tough decision to make in order to reconcile her past and Eric has worked hard to put his life together.  Finding each other and falling in love mean taking "A Chance".  Truly delightful...could not put it down.

Read from the Book

When Laine Carrington arrived in Thunder Point, she went directly to the hill above the beach and sat in the parking lot beside Cooper's bar. She didn't go inside- she would do that later. She just wanted to see if the view from this perch matched the pictures she'd been sent. She let out her breath, not even realizing she'd been holding it. The vista before her was even better.What am I doing here? she asked herself again. She'd been asking herself over three thousand miles of driving.The view was stunning. The beach was wide and long. The huge, black haystack rocks were a powerful contrast against the gray-blue water. The mouth of the bay lay between two promontories, the Pacific stretching endlessly beyond, crashing against the giant rocks, but the water in the bay was calm.She shivered in the cold and pulled her jacket tighter. It was late January and the damp cold caused her right shoulder to ache all the way to her elbow. She'd had surgery on that shoulder three months ago. A bullet was removed and damage repaired. Maybe it was the bullet that brought her to Thunder Point. Laine had been wounded on the job, then pulled from FBI field service and put on a desk while recovering. She wasn't given any active cases but she had a computer-she was limited to what amounted to research and clerical work for other agents. When she realized they were going to keep her on that desk for a long time, light duty, assisting rather than leading investigations, she requested a one-year l

About the Author

Robyn Carr is a best-selling author of romance novels. She studied nursing in college, but because she married her high school sweetheart who then joined the US Navy, Carr never had time to stay in one place and practice nursing. Instead, she became a reader of romance novels and then decided to write her own. Since that time she has written many historical and contemporary-based romance novels. She lives in Nevada and has a son and a daughter. Robyn's titles include the Virgin River and Grace Valley series as well as a number of stand-alone novels.

Editorial Reviews

"The Virgin River books are so compelling-I connected instantly with the characters and just wanted more and more and more."
