With its breathtaking vistas and down-to-earth people, Thunder Point is the perfect place for FBI agent Laine Carrington to recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future. The locals embraced Laine as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. Knowing her wounds go beyond the physical, Laine hopes she'll fit in for a while and find her true self in a town that feels safe. She may even learn to open her heart to others, something an undercover agent has little time to indulge.

Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point. Although he's a man with a dark past, he's determined to put down roots and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious to everyone. But while the law enforcement agent and the reformed criminal want to make things work, their differences may run too deep…unless they take a chance on each other and find that deep and mysterious bond that belongs to those who choose love over fear.

My review:

I have so far enjoyed Robyn Carr's books. They have this specific touch of a small town life which make you feel like coming home and so does The Chance. It's well written and the writing flows smoothly and it is easy to read. The scenery is beautifully set and you can easily relate to and like the characters.

You meet FBI agent Laine Carrington who after being shot at leaves Washington and stays in Thunder Point to recover and to plan her future. Laine discovers that she likes the place and she meets with Eric Gentry, a man with criminal past. Eric has also recently moved to the town to be closer to his daughter whose existence he wasn't aware of.

There is an undeniable attraction between Laine and Eric and as they become closer, Laine's father is showing up. Laine's relationship with her dad has been intense, because of Laine's choice of career and now Laine besides the blossoming love, needs to find a way how to deal with her father's Alzheimer's.

I was glad that there were supportive characters whose stories were added to the novel. There are Al who is working for Eric and the realtor Rae Anne who also come from very different backgrounds and it is interesting to read how their paths collide.

The Chance is a story about family and love, about overcoming the shadows of the past and about looking towards the hopeful future.

5 stars!
