Summary

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.

Surprisingly enjoyable

I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. They seemed varied and 3 dimensional, although at times Scott felt a little too perfect. The story almost didn't have enough drama, but there was enough to keep my interest. Like Scott, the town sometimes also seemed a bit too perfect, however this was probably part of why I enjoyed the book! Things don't always go perfectly, however, and it was good to see how Peyton dealt with the past and how events unfolded.

Occasionally I was unsure of who was speaking, perhaps clearer narration would have prevented this, however it wasn't too common. Apart from that the narration was good and unobtrusive.

First of Robyn Carr's books that I couldn't finish

The other Thunder Point books were delightful but this one felt like the author was working against a deadline. She made the lead character seem self-centered and unlikable. As I listened to the first hour of the book, I kept wondering if Robyn was depressed or angry at the world as she wrote this. She had all of the typical Thunder Point material at her disposal and could have made this one as delightfully light and easy listening as the others in the series. I stopped listening about half-way through--felt like a waste of time.

I am not giving up on Robyn Carr. I will wait for the next one and buy it.

Her only weak effort I've seen

If you are familiar with Carr's work, this fits in. It is a sweet love story with likable characters. It is the only book of Carr's that was a love story, only, with no plot. It is still worth the purchase just to see the town and characters progress.
