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.
I am quickly growing to love the Thunder Point series as much as Virgin River. Really! Thunder Point is a refuge for those who need help, and the new face in town, Devon, has found the right place. I thought her scary situation was a nail-biter. Devon was a strong and smart young woman, and it just goes to show how someone’s life can spiral out of control, placing her in a dangerous position. While in Thunder Point, Devon hooks up with Spencer, a widower/single father, and while I don’t feel like their chemistry was a strong as previous couples, I do think they were good for each other. They’ve both been through A LOT, so it’s not surprising that there was hesitation between them at first. Overall, THE HERO was a suspenseful read and an enjoyable continuation of the Thunder Point series. 4 stars!
