A New Hope by Robyn Carr (Thunder Point #8)

Starting over is never easy, but in Thunder Point, where newcomers are welcome and friends become family, it's possible to find yourself again. #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr takes us on a moving and rewarding journey as a young woman finds new hope.

After losing her child, Ginger Dysart was lost in grief. But since moving to Thunder Point, a small town on the Oregon coast, Ginger is finally moving forward. Her job at the flower shop is peaceful and fulfilling, and she's excited to be assisting with the Lacoumette wedding.

In spite of her lasting heartache, Ginger is swept up in the pleasure of the occasion. But the beauty of the Lacoumette farm and the joy of the gregarious family are ruined by an unfortunate encounter with the bride's brother, Matt. Struggling with painful memories of his own, Matt makes a drunken spectacle of himself when he tries to make a pass at Ginger, forcing her to flee the scene in embarrassment.

But when Matt shows up at the flower shop determined to make amends, what started out as a humiliating first meeting blossoms into something much deeper than either of them expected. Everyone around them worries that Ginger will end up with a broken heart yet again. But if Ginger has the courage to embrace the future, and if Matt can finally learn to let go of the past, there may still be hope for a happy ending

  • My review: A New Hope by Robyn Carr  (Thunder Point #8)

    4 STARS

    A New Hope starts right away with the drama of Lacoumette Wedding.  Matt Lacoumette is drunk and full of bitter emotions offends Ginger and gets knocked out.

    Matt Lacoumette has gone through a divorce in the past year.  He is full of anger at his ex-wife but he keeps the reason a secret.  Matt is a farmer with his family he is also a visiting Professor at the local university.

    Ginger Dysart I was afraid it would be a really sad story, but it is not.  Ginger is coming out of her depression in Thunder Point.  She loves working with the flowers.  Everyone knows her story without having to tell them and they reach out to her.  Ginger has been divorced and a year ago her baby died of sids.
    One scene did bring tears when Al and Ginger were talking about both losing their babies to SIDS.

    I love that we get to see more of Thunder Point residents.  We see a lot still of Grace, Troy and family.  I love the two new characters with them.

    There is a couple of love scenes that I skipped over.

    Robyn Carr writes such a community of characters with her books that draws you into there lives and makes the characters ones that you care what happens to them and you want to keep coming back and seeing what they are all up to now.  You want to visit with them and help them.

    The setting is Thunder Point a little beach community on the Oregon coast.

    I definitely want to read more about Thunder Point in the future.  I want to see more of Winnie and Charlie's characters again.  I hope Charlie's mom is the next story.

    I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of A New Hope.
