"The Promise" a new Thunder Point novel by Robyn Carr

**********Thank you NetGalley for an advanced copy of this title*******

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.

Peyton made a name for herself in the medical world as an awesome PA. Unfortunately she fell for her boss, an amazing cardiologist who lived only for his career. After trying to care for his hateful children and not getting any backup from Ted, she decided to leave her job and his home. It was time to find and reinvent herself. She bought a flashy little sedan and went for a drive. She ended up in Thunder Point, and accepted a temporary job at Scott's clinic until she decided what to do with herself. But Scott and his children worm their way into her good graces. Peyton is afraid that, like Ted, Scott will end up using her as a babysitting/chauffer service, but of course that is not who Scott is. 
She knows instantly that Scott is different. But can she overcome her single father relationship fear to see who Scott really is?

When mayhem strikes with Ted's daughter, Peyton jets off to help and of course Scott has the wrong idea. Could it ruin them forever?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. After the craptastic start to the series, the last 3 books have been oh so much better! I liked Peyton alot, especially when she went to the farm and you saw interaction with her parents and siblings. It was really cool and really.. well. real. I am anxious to read the next one!
