Welcome back to Thunder Point! Return to where it all began, in the first book of the beloved series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr. You’ll fall in love with this small town filled with people and stories you’ll never forget.
Nestled on the Oregon coast is a town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands.
Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.
With the whole town watching for his next move, Cooper has to choose between his old life and a place full of new possibilities. A place that just might be home.

Carr takes a detour from her bestselling Virgin River books with this solid contemporary series start. Henry "Coop" Cooper Jr. heads from Virgin River, Calif., to the tiny Oregon hamlet of Thunder Point after learning his longtime Army buddy has died and bequeathed him something. What he didn't expect: that the "something" would be over 200 acres of waterfront land, a beaten-down bar, and the fate of a small town. He also doesn't expect to find love with Coast Guard pilot Sarah Dupre, who landed in town a year earlier with the teen brother she's raising. While Coop isn't one for settling down, something about Sarah draws him in. Sarah's also cautious and not looking to get involved, but readers will cheer her on as she tentatively explores the possibility of a future with Coop. Carr neatly weaves in the lives of other town residents, laying the groundwork for future books.
