Thunder Point, Book 4
From the publisher:
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.
We met Laine briefly in The Hero. She was an FBI agent working undercover at the commune who helped Devon (and others) escape. Spoiler alert: if you haven’t read The Hero, stop reading now!
Laine was shot and rescued by Rawley, Cooper, Devon and Spencer and ended up with a fairly serious shoulder injury due to the gunshot. This book opens as she has taken a leave of absence from the FBI to recover more fully. It’s only been a few months but she needs some space from her job and her family back in Boston. She moves to Thunder Point because she wants to get as far away from her father as possible. Laine is from a family of doctors, and her father’s disapproval of her career choice comes to a head after she is shot. Thunder Point is always welcoming to strangers, especially when one of their own, Devon, is a friend.
We also met Eric briefly when he found out that his high school girlfriend did, in fact, have the baby she told him she was carrying. He ran at the time, and didn’t give her a whole lot of thought. But now that he’s found her, Eric is grateful to start a relationship with her. That leads him to buying the service station in Thunder Point, and to meeting Laine.
You couldn’t find two more different people if you tried. Eric is an uneducated former felon who grew up with very little, and Laine is FBI and Boston Brahmin, not exactly a match you’d expect. But they find their way to each other, one step at a time, and it’s a terrific romance. Laine is also dealing with family stuff that adds another layer to the story.
Another rather abrupt ending forced me to start book five in the series, The Promise. I am thoroughly enjoying this series!
