Publisher's Summary

Starting over is never easy, but in Thunder Point, where newcomers are welcome and friends become family, it's possible to find yourself again. New York Times best-selling author Robyn Carr takes us on a moving and rewarding journey as a young woman finds new hope.
After losing her child, Ginger Dysart was lost in grief. But since moving to Thunder Point, a small town on the Oregon coast, Ginger is finally moving forward. Her job at the flower shop is peaceful and fulfilling, and she's excited to be assisting with the Lacoumette wedding.
In spite of her lasting heartache, Ginger is swept up in the pleasure of the occasion. But the beauty of the Lacoumette farm and the joy of the gregarious family are ruined by an unfortunate encounter with the bride's brother, Matt. Struggling with painful memories of his own, Matt makes a drunken spectacle of himself when he tries to make a pass at Ginger, forcing her to flee the scene in embarrassment.
But when Matt shows up at the flower shop determined to make amends, what started out as a humiliating first meeting blossoms into something much deeper than either of them expected. Everyone around them worries that Ginger will end up with a broken heart yet again. But if Ginger has the courage to embrace the future, and if Matt can finally learn to let go of the past, there may still be hope for a happy ending.

Lots of words: Plot very thin


Therese Plummer, as always, does a masterful, utterly fabulous job of bringing the characters to life. There are few narrators who are her equal.

Robyn Carr was in a very wordy mood when she wrote this - and that's my kindest assessment. There is lots and lots of "telling us; not showing us." We get a huge amount of exposition - most in the form of inner and outer "dialogue" by the two main characters (Ginger and Matt) and after a while it becomes predictable - something to get through in hopes that pretty soon something will happen.

Anyone who hasn't read the entire Thunder Point series will be very lost, very quickly.

There's not really much of a plot.

The Sue Lynn and Charlie thread seems to have been left hanging. Next book, I suppose.

I'm not sorry I listened to it, but it was disappointing.

I have listened to ALL of Robyn Carr's novels that are narrated by Therese Plummer and absolutely NEVER grow tired of hearing her voice. This latest novel, although it's not listed as a Thunder Point release, is no exception. With the power of R. Carr's writing talent and T. Plummer's voice ability, I would put them on the very top of my favorites list. I was first hooked when I listened to the Virgin River series and although there are many books in the series, I was at a loss when I got to the last one. Now I crave the next new release from Thunder Point and truly hope Therese Plummer will ALWAYS be the narrator. This is a credit well spent!
