Review ~ The Promise (Thunder Point #5) by Robyn Carr

#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr returns to Thunder Point with an uplifting story about overcoming loss and finding unexpected love 

Scott Grant has a bustling family practice in the small Oregon community of Thunder Point. The town and its people have embraced the widowed doctor and father of two, his children are thriving, and Scott knows it's time to move on from his loss. But as the town's only doctor, the dating scene is awkward. That is, until a stunning physician's assistant applies for a job at his clinic. 

Peyton Lacoumette considers herself entirely out of the dating scene. She's already been burned by a man with kids, and she's come to Thunder Point determined not to repeat past mistakes. When Scott offers her a job, at a much lower salary than she's used to, Peyton is surprisingly eager to accept…at least for now. She's willing to stay for a three-month trial period while she explores other options. 

Scott and Peyton know the arrangement is temporary—it isn't enough time to build a real relationship, never mind anything with lasting commitment. But love can blossom faster than you think when the timing is right, and this short visit just might hold the promise of forever.
I was a huge fan of Robyn Carr's Virgin River series and that fandom has now extended to Thunder Point.

Ms. Carr creates phenomenal characters that make each return to Thunder Point an adventure. Scott Grant's character is a sexy doctor, but he was made even more attractive by his devotion to his children. However, I was sightly annoyed by Peyton's non-stop comparisons/expectations. I loved her extended family!

The most impressive part of this story was how the author was able to squeeze a complete courtship into a short period of time (the trial period).

Just an FYI, I read this book out-of-order - I read The Homecoming before this one. It was not a problem just wanted to state that for the record.
