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.

Review: I have been waiting to read Scott’s story from the first time he was introduced. There’s something about the single father that has me eager to read his story and hope he gets the happy ending they deserve. Scott seems a bit more endearing than most since he does the jobs of a several people as Thunder Point’s lone doctor.

I really like how complex Peyton was. I knew that anyone that Scott would eventually date would need to be someone intelligent with substance. I love that she does not need Scott but having Scott in her life makes her life that much better. She comes from a big farming family so Scott had his work cut out for him.

I sound like a broken record in saying that I miss the Virgin River books but Thunder Point has really grown on me. Rowley is one of my favorite characters and I’m glad he was also in this book. I like how we learn about all the characters from previous books. Carr does a fantastic job at creating a community of characters that is not only likable but also ones we can all relate to.

I look forward to the next Thunder Point book. Robyn Carr is almost better than chocolate in that I love to sit back and read her novels because I know I will get a good story with a bit of angst, life squabbles and an awesome romance. Scott and Peyton’s story is my fave one yet.
