In a moment of desperation, Devon McAllister takes her daughter and flees a place where they should have been safe and secure. She has no idea what is around the next bend, but she is pretty certain it can't be worse than what they've left behind. Her plan is to escape to somewhere she can be invisible. Instead, an unexpected offer of assistance leads her to Thunder Point, a tiny Oregon town with a willingness to help someone in need.

As the widowed father of a vulnerable young boy, Spencer Lawson knows something about needing friendship. But he's not looking for anything else. Instead, he's thrown his energy into his new role as Thunder Point's high school football coach. Tough and demanding to his team, off the field he's gentle and kind...just the kind of man who could heal Devon's wounded heart.

Devon thought she wanted to hide from the world. But in Thunder Point, you find bravery where you least expect it...and sometimes, you find a hero.

What did I think about this book
Another hit by Robyn Carr. She has a way of making you fall in love with each of the characters in her books. Her writing style is such that I don't want to put the book down until I am done with it. This one touched on a cult religion and how a woman got out of it. Therefore there are two stories going on here. The stories of the townspeople and the story of the cult and what is happening there. I felt for Devon and wanted to help her out myself. This was a great addition to the series and I can't wait to get to the next one. I am sure there will be more adventures in store for us. This one had some action as well as the romance in it. A great series. 

What did I think of the cover
This cover fits with the theme of this entire series. Thunder Point is a town set on the ocean and this cover again gives us a glimpse of that area.
