From the Bestselling Author of the hit Netflix series, Virgin River!
#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr delivers another smart, funny, emotional novel about the complexities of life in the small Oregon town of Thunder Point
Grace Dillon was a champion figure skater until she moved to Thunder Point to escape the ruthless world of fame and competition. And though she's proud of the quiet, self-sufficient life she's created running a successful flower shop, she knows something is missing. Her life could use a little excitement.
In a community where there are few eligible singles, high school teacher Troy Headly appoints himself Grace's fun coach. When he suggests a little companionship with no strings attached, Grace is eager to take him up on his offer, and the two enjoy…getting to know each other.
But things get complicated when Grace's past catches up with her, and she knows that's not what Troy signed up for. Faced with losing her, Troy realizes Grace is more than just a friend with benefits. He's determined to help her fight for the life she always wished for but never believed she could have—and maybe they can find real love along the way.
Carr fills her seventh visit to Thunder Point (after The Homecoming) with a charming cast of characters and a tender love story. Grace Dillon formerly known as champion ice skater Izzy Banks moves to the small Oregon town and buys a small flower shop, hoping to escape the overwhelming pressures of the competitive skating world. High school teacher Troy Headly is getting over a long relationship and looking for some lighthearted fun, so he offers a no-strings-attached relationship to the too-serious florist. Things heat up quickly when the two realize that they feel far more for each other than mere friendship. But after Grace's estranged mother returns to town with a bombshell revelation, their relationship might be nipped in the bud. Carr neatly weaves in glimpses of the happily-ever-afters from previous books in the series, which will please longtime readers. This is a solid smalltown romance with heart.
