Alexa Y. - After we had such a… GOOD… discussion about certain things in this book, I really want to read it! I did enjoy The Wanderer, and meeting all the characters, so it’s kind of cool that they’ll all be back in this second installment. I’m definitely going to check it out!

Jamie - Never heard of this series but I’m checking to see if my library has it! It sounds really good! Seems like a good crossover for those of us who started reading romance because of the YA genre but have no idea what the adult romance genre is all about! (like me!)

Tara - I picked up The Wanderer at BEA and can’t WAIT to read it. It’ll be my first Robyn Carr and I’ve got high hopes since so many people seem to enjoy her writing.

Pagepassion (Katharina) - Hey, I liked your review a lot and I’ll put the book on my wishlist 🙂 Sounds VERY good, especially the “intertwining storylines” and the “coolest hottest sex scene EVER” 😉 Greetings from Germany! Katharina

Jen @ Pop! Goes The Reader - I’m shocked that this book is relatively unknown given its rather unusual approach to perspective and storytelling in the contemporary romance genre. I’ve become so used to reading each book in a contemporary romance series from a different character’s perspective that the idea of having multiple characters intersect throughout a single book gave me a little jolt and I was initially skeptical. While I’m not always the best at adjusting to change, I am intrigued by Carr’s approach and it does sound like something I would enjoy. There are few things I like more in a romance novel than small towns and big families, either biological or found.

I’m happy to hear that Carr incorporates children and teens into her stories with a fair amount of success. I find they can often make or break a romance novel for me, and admittedly often dread the appearance of children because I find they’re very rarely well-drawn. Ashley’s story sounds particularly interesting and is one I would like to read more about.

Thanks for the really informative review! I’m happy to hear that you enjoyed The Newcomer and will likely add Carr’s Thunder Point series to my ever-growing TBR list 🙂

Aneeqah @ My Not So Real Life - I have actually heard very little about this series, which is strange, because it seems so different! I actually think it’s pretty cool how the timeline jumps around to other people, I don’t think I’ve read any other book that have done that successfully. This author doesn’t seem to shy away from anything, and the phenomenal characterization is so awesome as well! I love when you feel like the characters are real people (because they totally ARE, right?!).

Anyways, gorgeous review, Estelle! I’m definitely going to be checking this series out.
