When FBI field agent Laine Carrington decides to spend a year in scenic Thunder Point, OR, recovering from a gunshot wound she got during an undercover operation, all she hopes for is peace and quiet as she heals and rethinks her future. Falling in love with ex-con classic car restorer and body shop owner Eric Gentry is certainly not in her plans. But love strikes where least expected, and although the couple's feelings are real and an abundance of familiar Thunder Point townsfolk cheer them on, the gap between the pair is wide; bridging it will take all the trust, understanding, and courage they can find.
VERDICT A pair of emotionally fragile protagonists make their relationship work in an engaging romance that is sexy, funny, and intensely touching. Carr (The Hero), noted for her strong community-based series, lives in the Las Vegas area.
