With warmth and sensitivity, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr shows readers that falling in love can be the bravest act of all.

In a moment of desperation, Devon McAllister takes her daughter and flees 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've 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.

Look for What We Find by Robyn Carr, a powerful story of healing, new beginnings and one woman's journey to finding the happiness she's long been missing. Order your copy today!

The Chance


The locals of Thunder Point, Oregon, embraced FBI agent Laine Carrington as one of their own after she risked her life to save a young girl from a dangerous cult. So she stays recuperate from a gunshot wound and contemplate her future in a town that feels safe. Eric Gentry is also new to Thunder Point, determined to put his criminal past behind him and get to know the daughter he only recently discovered. When Laine and Eric meet, their attraction is obvious. But while they want to make things work, their differences may run too deep…unless they take a chance on each other and choose love over fear.


The Promise



Dr. Scott Grant has a bustling family practice in the small community, and his two children are thriving—he knows it's time to move on from the loss of his wife. But as the town's only doctor, the dating pool is limited. That is, until the stunning Peyton Lacoumette applies for a job at his clinic. Even though the salary is much lower than she's used to, Peyton accepts the job…for now. She'll stay for a three-month trial period while she explores other options. Peyton's been burned before by a man with kids, and she's determined not to repeat mistakes. They both know the arrangement is temporary—it isn't enough time to build a real, lasting relationship. But love can blossom faster than you think, and this short visit just might hold the promise of forever.


The Homecoming


The people in Seth Sileski’s hometown have never forgotten what might have been: the handsome star athlete and student lost everything in a terrible accident that put an end to his professional football career when it had barely begun. Seth has come to terms with the turns his life has taken, and now he has an opportunity to show everyone he's become a better, humbler version of his former self. Winning over his father is the main challenge, but Seth must also find a way to convince his childhood neighbor and best friend, Iris McKinley, to forgive him for breaking her heart. With his homecoming, will Seth be able to convince the town, his family and especially Iris that he's finally ready to be the man who will make them all proud?
