Synopsis

www.robyncarr.com

With warmth and sensitivity, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr shows readers that falling in love can be the bravest act of all. 

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.

Look for What We Find by Robyn Carr, a powerful story of healing, new beginnings and one woman's journey to finding the happiness she's long been missing. Order your copy today!

If you are a fan of Carr’s Virgin River series you will not be disappointed in the series. If you have not tried Robyn Carr’s books you are missing out on some wonderfully written stories with absolutely great characters.

Although The Hero could have been improved with a stronger romance and better characterisation of, well, the “hero” of the story, it’s still a great addition to Robyn Carr’s Thunder Point series.

The action is piled on at the end, making a rousing finale to this trio of books about Thunder Point, and Robyn Carr allows us to choose from a number of brave men and women as to whom we would call THE HERO.

Will I continue to read this series? I’m not sure. I’ll probably be tempted, because I do adore Robyn Carr-but there are too many good books out there to read a story that feels like I may have read it before only the names have been changed.

I find the two different series’ too similar to be able to appreciate Thunder Point on its own merit. I’m not sure what it is really. This book is a definite improvement on the last book, however.

...I like the direction and feel of this new series. While it's like Robyn Carr's Virgin River series - a series I loved - in that it focuses on a small town and the people that live there, it's different in the fact that there is one main character that the series is set-up around.

I absolutely adored this book of this series and I am so glad that I was able to start with the series at the beginning and with each book become more connected to the town. This is a series that is perfect to read straight through or take a break in between the books. Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel.

Although I don't require love scenes to enjoy a romance, having one or two more could have really helped to increase the intimacy and romantic feelings.

If you enjoy small town books, these are good. Just don't expect them to focus on a single Hero/heroine throughout the book. There are multiple POV's and layers of story all happening simultaneously.

‘The Hero’ is the third book in Robyn Carr’s Thunder Point series. I’ve really come to love the characters and the setting Ms. Carr has created. ‘The Hero’ introduces a new character, Devon McAllister, and fleshes out some of the newer characters, such as Spencer Lawson and Dr. Scott Grant.

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.

The Hero was a very readable book, although the credit goes to Ms Carr's writing and the cast of characters she has created in Thunder Point more than the story itself.

The Hero is probably the best book in the Thunder Point series so far. Devon is a wonderful character, courageous and fierce in the way only a mother can be, but at the same time vulnerable and understandably cautious, even fearful.
