Book: The Wanderer
Author: Robyn Carr
Release: March 26,2013
Series: Thunder Point
Reviewer: Lil

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands.

Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.

The Wanderer is the first book I have ever read from Robyn Carr. I know what you are thinking, Lil you love Romance and Carr is at the top of her field how have you not read her?!? I don’t know! And I’m regretting waiting so long. The Wanderer is a fantastic read! The best part is, is it’s just the beginning. The Wanderer is the first book in Carr’s new series set in a small coastal Oregon town, Thunder Point.

Coop is our first hero and he’s former military. I love Coop! I actually loved all the male leads in this book. Carr really knows how to write men that are easy to fall for. Carr obviously has a knack for setting up a series and introducing the reader to a set of characters without overloading them with info. I don’t have the best memory so when a writer is able to not only draw me into the story but weeks later remembering that story? Yeah job well done.

I wasn’t as crazy about the women in the beginning of the story but I think that had more to do with the fact that our main couple don’t meet until midway through the book. At the time I remember thinking, how is Carr going to convince me these two fall in love in such a short amount of pages? Well she did convince me… hook, line, and sinker. I think the biggest reason I was convinced was because she got me so invested in Sarah and Coop’s lives I was happy dancing when they finally fell for each other!

This book left me feeling good about taking the time to read it. I read so many books and so many of them will never find their way into a review let alone a permanent spot on my very crowded bookshelves but I have a feeling several of Robyn Carr’s books will be crammed in there by the end of this year. I suggest if you love Contemporary Romance than to add Robyn Carr to your TBR!

Lil is an avid reader who gave up TV so she could greedily read every book she could get her hands on. In the process she discovered a love for contemporary romance heavily laden with humor. Lil is formerly a True Blood blogger who discovered there is more to the world than her annoying love/hate one-sided relationship with the writers of TB. She credits JR Ward for pulling her from the two dimensional world of TV viewing.
