Book Review: The Wanderer by Robyn Carr

Title: The Wanderer
Series: Thunder Point #1
Author: Robyn Carr
Published March 26th 2013 by Harlequin MIRA
Age: Adult
From Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Virgin River novels, comes THUNDER POINT—the highly anticipated new series that will make you laugh, make you sigh, and make you fall in love with a small town filled with people you'll never forget.
Nestled on the Oregon Coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land's unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he's been left an old friend's entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community's destiny in his hands.
Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.
With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.
This review was meant to be published yesterday, but I think I schedule it wrong and couldn't check the blog. I have been MIA lately, too much work and haven't been reading a lot, but I think reading The Wanderer helped me get my rhythm again.

It started a little bit slow, just introducing the town and the people. But after a few pages I couldn't get more of Cooper, Sarah and Landon, and the rest of the town!

It's the second book I read of Robyn Carr. I read Redwood Bend a while ago and enjoyed it, and The Wanderer also shares the kind of characters that are making decisions, commitments, and taking second chances. It definitely has that family-romance thing going on, but I really enjoyed reading about teenager Landon falling in love, his sister Sarah trying not to fall in love with Cooper, and even the police officer Mac giving himself a second chance.

It was a very sweet story, and I loved the characters, even the dogs (of course!). But it also had a little bit of mystery, which was a good way to connect the characters. Thunder Point is a lovely town, sounds like the perfect place to have a family, small and beautiful and full of interesting people.

Overall, The Thunder Point series is definitely on my to be read list now. The Wanderer left me with a happy smile on my face and I can't wait to read the second book, The Newcomer, and learn more of Mac the police officer and Gina!
