Review: The Promise by Robyn Carr

The Promise by Robyn Carr

Publisher: Harlequin MIRA
Pages: 400
Format: ARC

Goodreads:  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 scene is awkward. 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.

Kritters Thoughts:  The next book in the Thunder Point series and not my absolute favorite, but I absolutely adore the creative ways that Robyn Carr brings new characters to this small town!  Peyton comes to town to escape a previous relationship that ended really poorly and she wants a moment to catch her breath and find a new path.  Of course she stops in this small town in Thunder Point and her stay may be longer than she first imagined!

I loved this coupling, but at times I was confused by their ups and downs.  I wanted the best for them and assumed it would work out, but they were just a little wishy washy for me!  The one thing I loved in this book was the increase of updates on other couples; for some reason I felt like I heard more than in previous books about the previous couples that I had loved so much!  I wouldn't mind a book that had mostly updates instead of a whole new couple and story.

A reminder that I would start this series from the beginning, but beware, you are going to want to read them back to back to back!

Rating:  definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
