#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.

The first few chapters I was a little overwhelmed with all the characters and trying to keep the connections separate. I did enjoy as the story progressed that the author reminded us of the other couples backstories so good that I remembered I've read one of the early book in the series more than a year ago. It would have been nice to know how the teenager managed. I liked that last little twist that created a little doubt even though I was still 95% sure who she was going to end up with. I enjoyed the plot, even know there was a lot of back story on the characters I wouldn't cry if someone died, there was just so many people it spread my emotions thin.
