I did not received a copy of the ebook, but checked it out at the local library as an ebook.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
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 scene is awkward. 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.

I love coming back to Thunder Point.  Love the characters in this books and the other 5 books I have read.  I love the one quote from the book:
"This was the kind of place that honored good people, even if they were just passing through." (Kindle pg 184)  The town takes in newcomers and make them as one of their own.

We have seen Scott in earlier books since he came to town to be the town's doctor.  His practice was getting a little bigger and he needed to hire a Physician's Assistant.  Peyton comes into town and stops to see if they are hiring.  So, she applies for the position.  She needs time to think about her life.  Peyton is getting over a bad break up to Ted, who was her boss.  She lived with him and helped care for his 2 kids, who did not want anything to do with her.  It was a messy at work and home.  Ted replaced her with a younger version at home and work.  What a dog!

Can Peyton trust Scott with her heart?  To love him and not think that he's anything like Ted.  Scott is a widower and has 2 kids.  She was used by Ted.  Will Scott be like that?

I love going back to Thunder Point and can not wait to get back.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
