Product Description

The Thunder Point series

The Hero - Book 3

With warmth and sensitivity, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr shows readers that falling in love can be the bravest act of all.

In a moment of desperation, Devon McAllister takes her daughter and flees a place where they should have been safe and secure. She has no idea what is around the next bend, but she is pretty certain it can't be worse than what they've left behind. Her plan is to escape to somewhere she can be invisible. Instead, an unexpected offer of assistance leads her to Thunder Point, a tiny Oregon town with a willingness to help someone in need.

As the widowed father of a vulnerable young boy, Spencer Lawson knows something about needing friendship. But he's not looking for anything else. Instead, he's thrown his energy into his new role as Thunder Point's high school football coach. Tough and demanding to his team, off the field he's gentle and kind...just the kind of man who could heal Devon's wounded heart.

Devon thought she wanted to hide from the world. But in Thunder Point, you find bravery where you least expect it...and sometimes, you find a hero...

By Rachel
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Devon McAllister has been a member of a closed, religious group living in a compound for nearly four years, but the community that once seemed so kind and simple no longer seems quite so innocent. Not wanting to expose her three-year-old daughter to anything dangerous, Devon flees the compound one night, desperate to get as far away from the community as possible. She knows she’s taking a risk when an elderly man offers her a ride in his truck, but it ends up being the best choice she could have made. The old man, Rawley, has been down on his luck many times, and he can see that Devon is in need of help. Before she knows it, she’s settled in the small, coastal town of Thunder Point as Rawley’s “cousin” who has fled an abusive relationship. Little do the residents know that this story isn’t so far from the truth.

Spencer Lawson moved to Thunder Point so that he and his adoptive son, Austin, could be closer to Austin’s biological father, Cooper. Settling into his new job as athletic coach at the local high school and getting to know the locals are high on Spencer’s priority list, and he has no intentions of looking for love in Thunder Point. Spencer spent the last few years caring for his terminally ill wife, so starting a new relationship wouldn’t feel appropriate, even if his marriage wasn’t exactly typical towards the end. But he finds himself drawn to the newcomer, Devon, especially after he overhears her talking to Rawley about her escape from a nearby compound. He pitches in to help Devon decorate her new home and offers protection in case any of the men from the compound come after her.

Neither Devon or Spencer plan for their relationship to go beyond a platonic friendship, especially considering the difficult relationships they’ve both recently left behind.

3.0 out of 5 stars So and so 3 Jan 2014
By Marleen
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
In all honesty, the 3rd book in the Thunder Point series by Robyn Carr disappointed me; it felt rather bland, hurried and the plot of a young woman escaping a commune didn’t exactly appeal to me. Nothing personal, I just didn't buy it.
The main characters; Devon and Spencer didn’t have that special connection the author tried to infuse. I didn’t believe in their attraction. Their coming together simply wasn’t credible. They both lacked the charisma of the earlier protagonists in this series.
Sure, I was happy to be reacquainted with this wonderful coastal Oregon town and their inhabitants Mac, Gina, Cooper and Sarah, Lou, Rae Anne, Carrie, Rawley, and wish they would have been even more present on the pages of this instalment. Especially Mac and Gina – those two I believe in. On a good note, I liked that old Rawley started to come out of his shell, being more communicative, revealing more of his past. I can only imagine he's the HERO the author attributed the title to - I don't really see who else?

I’m actually very curious if Robyn Carr will be able to bring back more credibility to her lead characters and her stories for the next Thunder Point books?
