Review: The Promise by Robyn Carr



If I’m being honest with myself I went into The Promise by Robyn Carr more than a little confused. I read Virgin River by Robyn Carr a few years ago and remember really enjoying it. Then a few months back I read Four Friends and didn’t enjoy it near as much as I had anticipated. Needless to say, I wasn’t sure what to expect with The Promise.

I haven’t read a contemporary romance in too long. The Promise by Robyn Carr set me in the small town of Thunder Point. There are quite a few characters introduced in the beginning of the book. I just rolled with the flow and everyone soon fell into place in my mind. Peyton and Scott both had some issues that needed to be worked through and these issues even presented themselves during the middle of the story.

If you’re a long time reader of the blog, you know I’m a sucker for secondary characters. The Promise delivers in spades. I really enjoyed spending a few hours with them and Carr made me want to live there. The male lead, Scott Grant, does have two small children and I have to say they really added to the story. I finished this book late Saturday night. I woke up Sunday morning and was disappointed that I didn’t have more to read.

The Promise by Robyn Carr is the fifth book in the Thunder Point series. It can easily stand by itself. I haven’t read the remainder of the series and still loved the book. I’m even more excited to go back and read some of the older books in the series. If you’re looking for a small town contemporary romance, make sure you check out the Thunder Point series by Robyn Carr!

  1. Stephanie I would consider myself a die-hard fan of Robyn Carr and I did an DNF for Four Friends, but adore her small-town series. I am so glad you enjoyed this!

  2. Stephanie I loved adored the secondary characters and their stories in this. Each time I go to Thunder Point I want to stay.


    1. Yes! The secondary characters make these small community romances so great. I can’t wait to get back to it.
