Review and Giveaway - "The Wanderer" by Robyn Carr

  I really enjoy books by Robyn Carr!  I've been reading the Virgin River series with a friend, ( we trade our thoughts and reviews by email on each of the books in the Virgin River series, we really enjoy them! )   So, I knew that I would **love** this new series also!

Thunder Point Novel #1

April 2013
Mira Books

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands.
Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.
With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.

Read an Excerpt here

My review:  When Cooper arrives in Thunder Point, he's not too sure what to expect. He finds out that a good friend has left him some property including a run down bar / and bait shop, and some wonderful land on the beach.
He feels an obligation toward his friend to fix up the bait shop, and to make it a useful place for the Community to use. The beach and surrounding landscape are very relaxing and Cooper is enjoying his time staying there.
While he is making plans to have the bait shop cleaned up, he meets some very nice folks in the Community including Sarah and her brother, Landon.

Cooper soon finds himself helping Landon with some bullies that have been bothering him. And as Cooper gets to know Sarah, he realizes that she has been through a lot, but she just "might" be ready for a new romantic relationship....... 

I really enjoyed getting to know everyone in Thunder Point, and Im looking forward to reading the second book in this series, The Newcomer
