Goodreads: 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.
Kritters Thoughts: The next in the Thunder Point series from Robyn Carr. With the addition of Spencer to town, this book mostly revolves around his adjustment to the small town and a new character addition by the name of Devon. Devon has stumbled upon Thunder Point by escaping a religious compound and has fear that she still isn't really safe.
I love reading about books with characters that are involved in extreme "religions." Maybe it is the religious studies major in me, but I just love reading about the psychological effects this situation can have on someone. The added addition of fear for Devon's daughter who is a child of the religious leader created some great mystery in the book. I also loved the updates on the other couples in town who were featured in previous books. It was a perfect balance of update and new storyline!
I absolutely adored this book of this series and I am so glad that I was able to start with the series at the beginning and with each book become more connected to the town. This is a series that is perfect to read straight through or take a break in between the books.
Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
