Series: Thunder Point #3
Publication Date: 27th August 2013
Book Source: Harlequin Mira & NetGalley
Synopsis: 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.
The Hero is a nice easy flowing story that I enjoyed, but never really felt totally engrossed in or excited about. In the Virgin River series there were books that I just devoured and ate up the pages and every now and then there would be a book in the series that was just ‘nice’ to read and seemed to fill some gaps with various characters. This book had that flavour to it.
I didn't feel the chemistry between Spencer and Devon and because of that their story took a backseat for me and I enjoyed more hearing about the other people in Thunder Point.
I was a little disappointed that we didn't get any development with Landon and Eve, in the previous book I was very excited about where their relationship was headed. I’m not too concerned though as I am certain that we will be seeing more of them in future books.
Robyn Carr is one of my favourite authors and I’m looking forward to the continuation of this series and visiting again in Thunder Point.
