The Promise by Robyn Carr (Thunder Point #5)
#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 pool is limited. 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.

My Review: The Promise by Robyn Carr
I like Thunder Point. It is a small beach town in Oregon. The characters are old friends. There are some newcomers too. I want to read more about the characters. The scenery sounds wonderful. I would visit it.
I like how people help others with what they can.
Peyton Lacoumette is new to Thunder Point. Peyton just came from a broken relationship both personal and professional. She is a physician's assistant. She agrees to stay for three months and work at the clinic as she decides what she wants next.
Dr. Scott Grant has opened a small clinic in Thunder Point. He wants to make a difference in peoples lives. He is also a single father with two adorable children. He will never be rich.
This book is set in Thunder Point but a lot of the story happens away from it too. Which is a little different.
I really like Peyton's family. I hope we get to see more of them in the future too. It was fascinating to hear about life on her family's farm and the different recipes her mom fixed.
We get to see what the others in previous books are up to now. All the different characters and the drama of life makes a very well rounded story that brings me back to Thunder Point again and again.
One scene in the book that I would love to do some day but doubt I can do. Is at night in the ocean a bunch of teenagers are laying on their long boards and flashlights looking down into the ocean and see all the life in the ocean.
Peyton has in her life two doctors that are single parents. They are the opposite to each other in most ways.
How they parent are vastly different. Scott is involved in his children's lives. He gives back to the community more than just money.
There was a few love scenes that I skipped over.
I really enjoy the drama in the characters lives and relationships and will want to read more books in the Thunder Point series in the future.
I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
