The Promise-Robyn Carr

The Promise

ISBN: 9780778316206

Peyton Lacoumette arrives in Thunder Point, Oregon to check out the town and its solo doctor Scott Grant as she decides whether to apply for the Physician's assistant vacancy.  She chats with Devon McAllister (see The Hero) who after learning why Peyton stopped amusingly calls her Miss Sneaky Pants.  Clearly overqualified with experience in Portland and elsewhere, Grant hires her on a three month trial expecting her to leave.

Peyton and Scott are attracted to each other, but both hesitate to act on their mutually-shared feelings.  She suffered heartbreak from a lover with kids; while he struggles with the loss of his wife and as a single dad he knows his two small children (Penny and Will) come first.  However, love proves difficult to ignore.

The fifth Thunder Point leisurely-paced relationship drama is an engaging second chance at life drama though the respective reasons for inertia have been used often.  The entertaining warm romance is enhanced by the continuation of those from the previous entries (see The Chance, The Newcomer and The Wanderer),
