This wasn't a bad novel, but Robyn did a lot of "telling" instead of "showing." There were lots of lectures and long descriptions of things like training for triathlons and and caring for ALS patients. Lots of long, introspective internal conversations in breathy dialogue About the time, the story got going, she would interrupt the story with a long lecture or internal "conversation." She stopped so many great storylines to lecture and "tell."
There were moments of genuine humor and pathos which I appreciated. The four babies tied the various storylines about the non-central characters nicely together.
It's an OK read but it's just not up to Carr's usual wonderful storytelling standards (although, admittedly, she has set a very high bar of expectation over the years!)
Plummer, who is my all time favorite narrator, was a little gushy and breathless in this one. Still my favorite, however.

As always.....I love Robyn Carr books! She is a guilty pleasure for me, I normally don't read true romance books but if it's Robyn Carr and Therese Plummer.....its a must! This story was sweet if not a little light on the romance.....since they didn't kiss until about 75% into the book. Blake was that guy we all dream of! Normally these books have a little lead into the next stories characters but I have no idea who it will be. I'll be waiting for the next book! As always the narration was perfect! I love Therese Plummer and will probably listen to anything she narrates!

love this series ijust hang till thenext one gets released also like the way Therese tells the story.
There is something heart warming about Robyn Carr's Characters. I like the struggles of the characters, their laughter, temper tantrums, unreasonable arguments and honest opinions. I like the minor characters and how they develop through out the Thunder Point Series. Charlie is one of my favorite characters, and Winnie has more strength of character than I had given her credit. If you liked Robyn Carr's Virgin River Series, then you will also appreciate her Thunder Point books. As for Therese Plummer the narrator, she is excellent.
