NEW BOOK, ONE WISH, IS THE SEVENTH CONSECUTIVE #1 NYT TITLE IN CARR'S BESTSELLING THUNDER POINT SERIES
Online PR News – 17-March-2015 – New York, NY – MIRA Books is celebrating bestselling author Robyn Carr’s tenth #1 placement on the New York Times (NYT) mass-market bestseller list. Her new book, One Wish, debuted at the #1 position on the March 15, 2015, list.
“We are absolutely thrilled that Robyn Carr has captured the #1 spot on the New York Times list for the tenth time in her career with MIRA Books,” said Loriana Sacilotto, Executive Vice President of Global Editorial at Harlequin. “Carr is a wonderful writer who connects with readers by creating vivid fictional towns with well-drawn and appealing characters whose stories are compelling and emotional.”
One Wish is the story of a former Olympic-gold-medal-winning figure skater who abandons the fame and attention of the ruthless world of ice skating for a new identity and a quiet, anonymous life as a florist in the small Oregon town of Thunder Point. Before too long, she is enjoying a fun, no-strings-attached relationship with a local high school teacher. But when the scandal that drove her from the sport resurfaces, she must face losing the new life she has built for herself…and her chance at real love.
Carr’s #1 New York Times bestselling titles spring from two different acclaimed series. She has three #1 NYT bestselling titles in the Virgin River novels, which are set in California, and seven #1 NYT bestselling titles in the Thunder Point books, which unfold in Oregon. The first eponymous Virgin River novel was published by MIRA Books in 2007, and the author topped the NYT mass-market bestseller list for the first time in November 2011 with Bring Me Home for Christmas, the sixteenth title in the series. The Wanderer, the first title in Carr’s Thunder Point series, reached #1 in April 2014. Each subsequent title in the series has also reached the coveted #1 spot on the list.
The RITA® Award-winning author of more than forty novels attributes much of her success to the fact that she tries to craft stories that not only entertain but also address sensitive issues, such as domestic violence, health risks and post-traumatic stress disorder. She frequently takes her readers into the hearts and minds of the brave individuals who have served in the military, delving into the families left behind and portraying those who confront challenges head-on in their search for love and fulfillment.
