About the Book:
With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.
Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point. Although he's a man with a dark past, he's determined to put down roots and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious to everyone. But while the law enforcement agent and the reformed criminal want to make things work, their differences may run too deep…unless they take a chance on each other and find that deep and mysterious bond that belongs to those who choose love over fear.
I liked Eric; he seems like a guy with his head on straight; a guy who has had some rough times but who has decided that that life is going to get better. He made a nice contrast with two of his employees--one a man his age who has been running from life for many years; the other a teen who seems to be heading down the wrong path--or is he?
Somehow Laine just didn't ring true with me; it's not that I didn't like her, it's that the various parts of her personality didn't add up. When she and Eric get together things get very steamy very fast, and we have front row seats.
I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley. This was a light easy read with the requisite happy ending, and it was just what I needed when I read it. Grade: B.
