Synopsis: 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.
Another pleasant installment in Robyn’s Thunder Point series. I’ve been looking forward to Dr Grant’s chance at a HEA since he first made his appearance in the small town.
Peyton Lacoumette is looking for a little respite from the unpleasant break up of her last relationship with a very successful, wealthy and charming Cardiologist, Dr Ramsdale. Peyton herself is a nursing practitioner, who not only helped him in his practice, but also raised his ungrateful children and was the very attractive accessory on his arm.
Peyton decides to stop temporarily in Thunder Point and take a job helping Dr Grant in his clinic. There is definitely a mutual attraction between the pair but understandably Peyton is taking things slow given her previous relationship. I loved the comparison between the high flying Dr Ramsdale and the small town Dr Scott. This storyline showcases how money can't buy you happiness.
Once again in the background we have a wealth of characters and I really loved Peyton’s family. There was plenty to catch up onwith Sarah and Cooper and not enough of Landon and Eve. I find myself wondering if Robyn Carr plans to leave us filling the gaps in their story until their own book comes out.
I’m certain there’s plenty more to come in Thunder Point with the arrival of a former local cop in town. I personally feel the Thunder Point series is cruising along at a slower pace than that of Robyn’s Virgin River series, but is still just as enjoyable.
