Review: Sunrise Point by Robyn Carr

Sunrise Point by Robyn Carr

Publisher: Mira 
Pages: 384 
Format: eARC 
Buy the Book: Amazon 

Goodreads:  Tom Cavanaugh may think he wants a traditional woman, but in Virgin River, the greatest tradition is falling in love unexpectedly.... 

Former marine Tom Cavanaugh’s come home to Virgin River, ready to take over his family’s apple orchard and settle down. He knows just what the perfect woman will be like: sweet, decent, maybe a little naive. The marrying kind. 

Nothing like Nora Crane. So why can’t he keep his eyes off the striking single mother? 

Nora may not have a formal education, but she graduated with honors from the school of hard knocks. She’s been through tough times and she’ll do whatever it takes to support her family, including helping with harvest time at the Cavanaugh’s orchard. She’s always kept a single-minded focus on staying afloat...but suddenly her thoughts keep drifting back to rugged, opinionated Tom Cavanaugh. 

Both Nora and Tom have their own ideas of what family means. But they’re about to prove each other completely wrong...

Kritters Thoughts:  Another great book from Robyn Carr in the Virgin River series.  Tom Cavanaugh the owner of the apple orchard who makes a brief appearance in Redwood Bend is our main character in this book.  As he has returned to be back in the apple business he is finally getting into his groove when Nora walks in needing a job and some support for her and her two young daughters.  The reader may know where this story will end, but Robyn Carr takes you on an adventure before depositing you right where you thought you would end up.  A little bit of romance and a lot of great characters give this book the depth to make it more than just a romance novel.

My only negative thought for this one was the random story line between the bar owner Jack and Coop.  It popped up in the middle of the book and resolved, but seemed very random as it didn't go along with the bigger story that this book was centered around.  Just thought it was kind of random.  

I may have said this before, but I love how each book takes place in the same town but centers around a different character.  It is so fun to learn more about each towns person in their own book.  I will definitely continue to devour this series.  

On a side note, you do not have to read this series in particular order because each book stands quite nicely on its own.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel 
    (we know there will be one!)
