The Newcomer by Robyn Carr

Author: Robyn Carr
Publisher: Mira ( Harlequin)
Date of publication: June 2013

Single dad and Thunder Point's deputy sheriff "Mac" McCain has worked hard to keep everyone safe and happy. Now he's found his own happiness with Gina James. The longtime friends have always shared the challenges and rewards of raising their adolescent daughters. With an unexpected romance growing between them, they're feeling like teenagers themselves-suddenly they can't get enough of one another. 

And just when things are really taking off, their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos. When Mac's long-lost-and not missed-ex-wife shows up in town, drama takes on a whole new meaning. They're wondering if their new feelings for each other can withstand the pressure...but they are not going down without a fight. 

The Newcomer is the second book in the Thunder Point series. I enjoyed the first one and was looking forward to this one.  I'm happy to say that it is just as good.  The synopsis is a bit deceiving though, because it isn't just about Mac and Gina, the story also deals with Cooper and Sarah and their relationship.  In fact, it really encompasses a lot of characters from the first book.  

Landon and Eve are getting closer, Sarah is struggling with a possible reassignment and what that means for her and Cooper.  Ashley's boyfriend breaks her heart and she has to learn to deal with the loss of first love. Cooper's past comes back to haunt him in a big way.  And finally. Mac and Gina face their own obstacles for a HEA,  Kind of a lot, right? But, so worth the journey for all of them. The story flows well and  it was good to visit with all of the characters again.  I am really loving this series and look forward to reading the next book, The Hero
