Contemp Review: The Wanderer (Thunder Point) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "The Wanderer" the 1st book in her Thunder Point series by Robyn Carr.

Product Description

From Robyn Carr, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the popular Virgin River novels, comes Thunder Point — the highly anticipated new series that will make you laugh, make you sigh, and make you fall in love with a small town filled with people you'll never forget.

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small 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.

My Review:

Hank Cooper has rolled into the quiet town of Thunder Point with his fifth wheel toy hauler after getting a phone call about his buddy Ben has died.  He wants to get to the bottom of the mystery after hearing Ben has died mysteriously.  He is informed that Ben has left him his bar/bait shop which is in bad shape and 200 acres of prime beachfront property.

Sarah Dupre is a U.S. Coast Guard rescue helicopter pilot who has raised her younger brother since her early twenties.  She has recently been through a nasty divorce which has strongly affected her and her brother.

Every character is fully developed and well written.  Real life issues are addressed (teen-age romance, drug use, bullying, being a single parent raising children/teen-agers).
