The Hero by Robyn Carr



In a moment of desperation, Devon McAllister took her daughter and fled a place where they should have been safe and secure. She has no idea what is around the next bend, but she is pretty certain it can’t be worse than what they have left behind. Her plan is to escape to somewhere she can be invisible. Instead, an unexpected offer of assistance leads her to Thunder Point, a tiny Oregon town with a willingness to help someone in need.
As the widowed father of a vulnerable young boy, Spencer Lawson knows something about needing friendship. But he’s not looking for anything else. Instead, he’s thrown his energy into his new role as Thunder Point’s high school football coach. Tough and demanding to his team, off the field he’s gentle and kind...just the kind of man who could heal Devon’s wounded heart.
Devon thought she wanted to hide from the world. But in THUNDER POINT, you find bravery where you least expect it...and sometimes, you find a hero.
 
Robyn Carr has written another beautiful book. I loved the fact that the main characters in the first two books were very much involved in  The Hero, Robyn Carr continues to leave you  a comforting "feel good" feeling with her interconnected series, and manages to introduce her readers to a cast of  wonderful characters with very human  problems, relationships and lives. Watching Devon and Spencer falling in love felt like watching family come together. I enjoyed the way that  Robyn Carr has fleshed out the supporting characters, and it seems to me started plating the seed for future stories. Family ties are strengthened and lives are changing in this series. This book from beginning to end reminded me of why I fell in love with Robyn Carr's books. Carr's books make you feel like you are coming home.
