One Wish

Grace Dillion owns the flower shop in Thunder Point. She loves nothing more than arranging flowers- making things beautiful. Grace is ok with her life- she lives a quiet life, work and home. Reading books.

After the life that Grace gave up- quiet is fine with her.

But, maybe it’s getting a bit too quiet. 

When Grace starts hanging out with Troy, another single person in Thunder Point- a friend, truly- he informs her that he’s going to introduce her to fun- that there is more to life than work and home. So, Grace lets him- and their friendship turns a bit flirty.

Troy, single and good-looking, sees Grace and knows that she needs fun in her life. She works all the time and then she goes home. They’ve hung out before- but it’s all in friendship. When Troy begins to spend more time with Grace- sparks fly and their relationship takes more of an adult turn.

Their relationship hits a test when Grace receives a letter from someone and has to reveal who she was in her past life- a world champion ice-skater who had to deal with mean girls, mean coaches, stalkers and a mom that may love gold more than her daughter.

Has someone in Thunder Point figured out who Grace really is? Or is someone from her past trying to scare her?

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

First thing you need to know is that I adore ice-skating (hello, the Olympics) and I could watch The Cutting Edge at least 3 times a week for the rest of my life. So, I was intrigued by Grace’s story. While I was maybe hoping for Grace to be more of a Kate from The Cutting Edge- she didn’t disappoint. She was sweet and thoughtful and cute- and her thoughts about Troy were color me adorable.

Now, Troy. I’ll confess, well- he just wasn’t a heartthrob I could get all excited about. He’s good-looking, confident- and yet something kind of rubbed me the wrong way about him (I had the same reaction to him in THE HOMECOMING). What made me like Troy was ultimately how he helped Grace in a pivotal point of the story- you could tell that while he never intended to have feelings for her- somehow it had happened and he wanted her to make peace with her past.

Again, Grace is the better half of the duo- but I’ll be curious to see how Robyn updates their storyline in future Thunder Point novels.

Overall: Not bad. Enjoyable, for the most part. Not perfect, though. It was a quick read, a nice visit to Thunder Point- and had a heart-tugging look at mom/daughter relationships. If you enjoy Robyn Carr, get it. If you are new to her, this one is fine to start with- it’ll give you a fair introduction to most of the town.

  1. Grace really brought out the best in Troy, didn’t she? I really liked this book – something I wasn’t expecting because of how Troy was portrayed in previous book(s). Overall, a great addition to the series.

    • I only knew Troy in The Homecoming, so I wasn’t sure how much of a role he played in previous books- BUT, YES! Grace made him so much better. Oh he still got on my nerves some- something I could never really place a reason why- more just a feeling- but Grace helped smooth my “ehh” feelings toward him- and for him to grow as a character. I like the books b/c they are quick and easy- and they are the perfect companion to a glass of hot chocolate or *ahem* a more adult beverage!
