Description:

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.

My Thoughts:

This was a great book like all the other Thunder Point books it's great to go back to this small town and see what people are up to like Cooper and his very pregnant wife Sarah who are expecting their first child.

In this book we follow Laine Carrington who was connected in the book The Hero as Laine is recovering from getting shot by cult leader Jacob, she is trying to figure out what to do next continue her FBI work or something else.

We also follow Eric Gentry who's reconnecting with his daughter Ashley.  When Eric meets Laine the attraction is very obvious but like any great book the couple have to figure out what they want and if they will work together.  Laine also has to deal with her father known as Senior who has all sorts of issues when it comes to Laine's work.  But when the times get hard Laine steps up into a job she didn't think she would have too.

We also meet Al who has been running since the death of his son Ethan and the failure of his marriage.  He meets and is attracted to Ray Anne a real estate agent in town.  Al finds his calling with Justin Russell who's mother is fighting MS and the three boys have been working a long time to care for their mother.  Justin and Al work out a way to keep the boys together and happy.

I love Robyn's ability to story tell she pulls you in with interesting characters that aren't prim and perfect but have their issues and work to resolve them or make them work for them unlike most romances she doesn't offer a picket fence she offers so much more a realness of the characters that you don't read about everyday!
