The Promise by Robyn Carr
#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr returns to Thunder Point with an uplifting story about overcoming loss and finding unexpected love
Scott Grant has a bustling family practice in the small Oregon community of Thunder Point. The town and its people have embraced the widowed doctor and father of two, his children are thriving, and Scott knows it's time to move on from his loss. But as the town's only doctor, the dating pool is limited. That is, until a stunning physician's assistant applies for a job at his clinic.
Peyton Lacoumette considers herself entirely out of the dating scene. She's already been burned by a man with kids, and she's come to Thunder Point determined not to repeat past mistakes. When Scott offers her a job, at a much lower salary than she's used to, Peyton is surprisingly eager to accept…at least for now. She's willing to stay for a three-month trial period while she explores other options.
Scott and Peyton know the arrangement is temporary—it isn't enough time to build a real relationship, never mind anything with lasting commitment. But love can blossom faster than you think when the timing is right, and this short visit just might hold the promise of forever.
The Promise is a tender romance that it build up for the character to reach each other. Peyton had a terrible relationship that she does not want to get into another one. But things changes when she work for the sexy doctor Scott. Scott is a widower with two children. Scott does not want a relationship but he notice Peyton that he decide to change his approach. They both have a lot to accomplish in order to have their relationship long lasting. I just enjoy reading Carr work since it feel like home. The book comes with familiar characters and relate able situation that it makes the story realistic. I definitely enjoy these character so much that it makes the summer read so much better! Great book.
