April Books & Wine - While I strongly disliked the first Robyn Carr book I read — some Virgin River book — I am willing to give those Thunder Point books a shot, because A) different series and B) you’ve given it your stamp of approval and that’s important to me, ha ha.

Christine L. - I like escaping reality and learning about the inner workings of others’ relationships. Thanks for offering this giveaway!

Vicky - I love Robyn Carr’s books because she gives so much insight into her character’s lives, making them believable. I like to read romance novels, because they allow me a mini vacation, imaging how other peoples lives are lived, even in fiction.

Hannah - I’m with Leona, it’s nice to at least read about those dreamy romances we all love to fantasize about! Ha

Lauren @ Love is not a triangle - Thank you for specifying that this is the third book in a series, and that it doesn’t matter where we start. That’s always helpful for new readers. Love when a series of books is set in the same place and you really get to know it throughout. I love slow building romances, and I’m very curious about the fact that you say the label of “hero” doesn’t fit just one person. I want to find out what that means. Thanks for this review!

Alexa Y. - I am very excited about this book for a number of reasons. But the primary one is that I miss this setting! It was so beautifully described in the first book, and I find myself missing it whenever I encounter this book or its predecessor. The story of this one does sound fantastic too, so there’s also that. Glad to hear this series gets better and better!

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - After reading an endless string of reviews for the books in this series, I’m still not sure it’s the right choice for me. I tend to gravitate toward romances that focus on one relationship per book in the series, and from what I understand about Carr’s Thunder Point series, this isn’t always necessarily the case. I also must admit that it seems a little soon for Spencer to move on only four months after the death of his wife. Although he likely had the opportunity to prepare himself for it well beforehand because she was sick for some time, it still doesn’t sit well with me. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed it though, Estelle! One of my other friends thought that this was the best novel in the series so far, so it sounds as though Carr’s work becomes increasingly engrossing as she progresses 🙂

Leona - It’s nice to know that certain types of love is still remaining…even if it may be fictional.

Tammy - Because sometimes it’s nice to read about someone else’s relationship.

Ann - I finally got caught up with the Virgin River series which leads into this series. Very much looking forward to reading The Hero
