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.
It has been way too long since I have been swept away by the magical feel of one of Carr's small town romances.
There is just something to be said about getting everything you are looking for in a romance in one super charged story. And even though this is part of a series you can read each book as a stand alone and I really do love that. I love that we get glimpses of characters we have already fallen in love with, without having to have read all of their stories first.
Carr has an amazing way of whisking you away to another time and another place. Where things run slower and life is just a little bit easier.
Five reason why you should read this one:
1. That small town feel that you can't help wanting to be a part of, whether you already grew up in a small town or not.
2. The romance. Who can say no to a good romance?
3. Past characters. It is always fun to have a series where each book can be read as a stand alone but even more so when you get to see past characters in said new books and see where they are now.
4. Fun secondary characters. For me, secondary characters can make or break a book.
5. A happily ever after ending. There is nothing like going into a book knowing you are going to get that fell good ending you are craving.
