The Promise (Thunder Point)
 Robyn Carr
Harlequin MIRA, 6/24/14

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18591458-the-promise#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr returns to Thunder Point with an uplifting story about overcoming loss and finding unexpected love

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.

      Carr is one of the few contemporary romance writers I read consistently; Mallery is another. (Also Emily March, Susan Wiggs, and now RaeAnne Thayne.) I’ve dabbled in some other writers’ work, but these ladies just keep me coming back, for some reason!

    I haven’t read any Carr yet but I like the sound of this one. It might be a good one to start with. I’ve taken a break from the Fool’s Gold series for awhile but I might have to try it again. I got one off Daily Deals the other day that I’ll have to try but this one sounds interesting too.

      If you’ve never read Carr, I really recommend starting with Virgin River, the first in her Virgin River series. It’s the one that got me hooked on her. I enjoy the Thunder Point books, but there’s just something special about Virgin River and the people who live there.
