The Hero

As I mentioned on Danica's Thoughts, I picked this book up while on vacation in Florida.  I didn't do any research about the author or book, and it happened to be one of the handful I skimmed through while pressed for time at Walmart.  And in the end, it turned out to be decent book, whew, got lucky there!

My lucky find is titled, The Hero by Robyn Carr.  I have a soft spot for romance, particularly Western Romance, but this worked out just fine.  Still a romance novel, but placed on the beach in Oregon.  Just reading the way she described this town (Thunder Point) made me want to move there, good job Robyn!  Anyway, it's about a struggling single mom trying to escape a cult, who meets a town full of helpful folk, and of course ***SPOLIER ALERT*** falls in love with another newbie in Thunder Point.  Sure lots of the book was obvious, but here and there she would surprise me.  And for me, I don't read for the suspense, I read because the characters interest me and I hope in the end they do fall in love and live happily ever after.  (Maybe I've watched one too many Disney movies, ha-ha!)  One thing Robyn seemed to really touch on is how intertwined lives can be, whether it be from divorce, death, remarriage, half-siblings, step-siblings, extended family, friends that are like family, etc.  Despite all of the different relationships it never grew confusing.  At one point she seemed to veer too far from the main characters for me, that's when it hit me, this book is part of a series about Thunder Point, she has to do this in order to touch back on old characters and foreshadow new characters.  When I purchased the book I didn't notice it was the 3rd book in the Thunder Point Novel series, oops. 

One thing I didn't quite get was the title, there were mutliple hero's, which one was she referring too?

Before leaving The States it crossed my mind to pick up another one of her books, I liked Robyn's writing style.  But then I made a big mistake, and spoiled part of the book I was reading.  I went online to look up her latest book (The Chance) and while reading the blurb it gave away details about the outcome of The Hero, the book I was still reading, not cool!  Why did I do that?  Should have just gone to the store and picked up another book, oh well.  During my next trip to Walmart, I completely forgot to swing by the book section and before I knew it the time to return home had come.

Will I read/purchase another Robyn Carr book in the future?  If one happens to end up in my hands or on my Amazon wish list, sure!

Bye! Dag! Adios! Namaste!
