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.

I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. They seemed varied and 3 dimensional, although at times Scott felt a little too perfect. The story almost didn't have enough drama, but there was enough to keep my interest. Like Scott, the town sometimes also seemed a bit too perfect, however this was probably part of why I enjoyed the book! Things don't always go perfectly, however, and it was good to see how Peyton dealt with the past and how events unfolded.
Occasionally I was unsure of who was speaking, perhaps clearer narration would have prevented this, however it wasn't too common. Apart from that the narration was good and unobtrusive.
I will try one more but I do wish there was a different narrator. Her male voices are horrible and sound so much alike.
I'll try one more from this series, but it will have to be much better.
Her voices were awful and she had a drawn out lilt like she was reading bad poetry. Her tone of voice was pleasant but the way she read and the voices were off-putting.
No. No plot, no suspense at all. Just a simple romance.
The lead woman character was very unlikeable and spent the first 5 or 6 chapters bemoaning the loss of her former lover. Everything was about her past relationship and it got really old.
"Her only weak effort I've seen"
If you are familiar with Carr's work, this fits in. It is a sweet love story with likable characters. It is the only book of Carr's that was a love story, only, with no plot. It is still worth the purchase just to see the town and characters progress.
"First of Robyn Carr's books that I couldn't finish"
The other Thunder Point books were delightful but this one felt like the author was working against a deadline. She made the lead character seem self-centered and unlikable. As I listened to the first hour of the book, I kept wondering if Robyn was depressed or angry at the world as she wrote this. She had all of the typical Thunder Point material at her disposal and could have made this one as delightfully light and easy listening as the others in the series. I stopped listening about half-way through--felt like a waste of time.
I am not giving up on Robyn Carr. I will wait for the next one and buy it.
"As Promised...Robyn does it again."
I like both, I buy the book and listen to on line
I am going to have to say Scott, Another hero in Thunder Point,
Therese Plummer's performance are top rate, she can do men's voices, children s, of course all the women's. She's one of the best.
I love The Promise, it was all she it would be, I cannot not wait for the next book.. I started listening to Robyn book with Thunder Point, and will be so saddened when they end. I want to live in this make believe town. In my mind when I listen or read, I live in Thunder Point and love everyone who move there.
Once again another great book from Robyn Karr, it is magnificent, great to listen to.. Now waiting on the next one. Scott and Payton have two things in common. the love of medicine. They fell in love, and it was a sweet sensual love. Kudo's to Robyn for writing this and introducing us to Scott and to others along the way.It's worth the credit, buy it if you must but read the Promise, it's wonderful.
"Almost NOT Worth the Credit"
I was disappointed with the first 7 Chapters of this book. It was nothing but "woe is me. I just got out of a bad relationship" from Payton, the P.A., who according to the info blurb, is supposed to be falling for the local doc. This doesn't even start, with a BAD pickup line :), until Chapter 8. From then on things happen according to what we are expecting and it becomes a nice story.
"Another very good Thunder Point novel"
Well developed characters, interesting background information on places and general problems that are part of most of our lives. Very good narration too
Thanks to my he author, narrator and Audible for another good Thunder Point novel.
"I thought it would never end."
I am a huge fan of the Thunder Point series. These characters were not likeable, though. The story was very predictable and not at all like the series. I'm sad because this is time I will never get back.
"another great addition to series"
good addition to the series of thunder point looking for the next story can't wait
"Another great Robyn Carr Series"
Romance, heart break, kids, and small town friendliness. The makings of a great story. Robyn Carr at her best.
it's a sad day when a woman sides with a man over how another woman handles a situation ... put the man who loves you over your ex'S daughter
