The Newcomer by Robyn Carr: A Review

The Newcomer

Thunder Point #2

by Robyn Carr

~ Out June 25th!! ~

And just when things are really taking off, their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos. When Mac's long-lost-and not missed-ex-wife shows up in town, drama takes on a whole new meaning. They're wondering if their new feelings for each other can withstand the pressure...but they are not going down without a fight.

Step into the world of Thunder Point, a little town on the Oregon coast where newcomers are welcomed, hearts are broken and mended, and the dramas of everyday life keep the locals laughing, crying and falling in love.
I've told you guys how in love I am with Robyn Carr's Virgin River series...she's so amazing at her characterization! 
You pity some of them, your heart breaks for others, and she can make me DESPISE some. 
 And she's not dissapointing me on that front with this series ~ BUT I'm not thrilled with the hero/heroine relationships in this one.  I wouldn't dream of telling an author what to write, but I've come to expect that when I read one of Robyn Carr's books I'm going to get a full relationship story in ONE book.  And yes, their story/relationships might continue to grow in later books, but the main characters get the HEA, the full relationship...and I'm not feeling this so far.  I am growing to love this town already, I actually CRIED during this don't misunderstand me. 
 It's a fabulous book, but I felt like Mac and Gina took a back seat to the continuation of Cooper and Sarah from The Wanderer.  We got sneak peeks at their budding relationship in book 1, but not enough to pull the focus off Sarah and me this book was more of a stepping stone, a building and getting to know the town. 
Will I get the next story?  Oh, yeah, I can't WAIT for it!
Do I hope it will focus more on the hero/heroine for that story?  YES!!
So yes, you WANT and NEED to read this.  It's a great STORY, just not a great romance. 
LOL, have I totally confused you now?? 
I just know that I'm totally addicted to Robyn Carr now!
