A Bit Disappointing

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.

Lin Su was difficult, but Blake was awesome

Robyn Carr is one of my favorite writers in this genre and this series is one of my favorites. This book fell short of her normal excellence. In fact, this was my least favorite Thunder Point installment because Lin Su made it hard to truly enjoy her perseverance and tenacity. The characters make this series so engrossing and Lin Su made me want to shake her a bit.

Lin Su was definitely a survivor and hard worker, but she took the "Lone ranger" thing to the next level. Life had dealt her some blows and she found herself a single mother estranged from her adopted family. I suspect, Charlie is the only one she has, so fear of losing him made her so controlling.

Blake had to overcome much to become the best in his sport, and he begins mentoring charlie much to Lin Su's dismay. Lin Su resented Charlie listening anyone else but slowly she loosened the reins of Charlie enough to see him blossom under Blake's guidance.

Can Lin Su learn to let someone else into their lives after the betrayals she faced in her past?

She is my least favorite heroine in the series and they are my least favorite couple. Blake was everything I love in a hero. He was handsome, athletic, hard working, sexy, smart, generous and loved mentoring the disadvantaged. I kept thinking "girl, you need to snatch that up!" Blake was a really great guy and frankly speaking, I didn't see why he had to have Lin Suh since she was prickly. I supposed he had to conquer the challenge. I didn't feel the chemistry at all. I actually liked them better as individuals because they are both hard working and self sacrificing. I like Blake in Charlie's life, but the romance with Lin Su was undercooked and lacked that hotness that I am used to in this series.
