The Chance-Robyn Carr

The Chance Robyn Carr Mira, Feb 25 2014, $7.99 ISBN: 9780778315995 Following a near fatal undercover assignment inside an Oregonian cult for over six months, FBI agent Laine Carrington tried to stay in her family’s Boston home for her wounded shoulder and mind to heal. However, her disapproving always critical father makes recuperation impossible so she flees him and the East Coast for Thunder Point, Oregon. Trying to start over following serving time in prison, Eric Gentry recently opened up an auto body shop in Thunder Point after learning he has a daughter he never knew about living there. When Laine and Eric meet for the first time, both feels the strong attraction even as each remains wary of relationships. As they fall in love, her father arrives in Thunder Point with desperate stunning news that shakes Laine’s equilibrium as much as taking that bullet in one of her wings almost left her bleeding to death. The fourth Thunder Point leisurely-paced relationship drama (see The Hero, The Newcomer and The Wanderer) is an engaging character study. The warm romance between the on leave agent and the ex-convict supports the underlying premise of second chances as part of family and community obligations but when to draw the line to care for oneself remains complicated.
