Review: The Lemon Sisters – Jill Shalvis

Review: The Lemon Sisters – Jill Shalvis

The Lemon Sisters felt like the perfect behind-the-scenes story of a marriage, but also of the relationship sisters can have. The Lemon Sisters follow two sisters – and they lead very different lives. They were both hiding part of their frustrations with their lives, to not burden each other. Until one day, when Mindy shows up unannounced at Brooke’s house. Feeling overwhelmed and tired, Mindy needs a break. And in a way, Brooke does, too. Therefore, the two sisters swap houses for a few days, and Brooke takes Mindy’s kids back to Wildstone, the place where she hasn’t been back in ages. The Lemon Sisters follows Brooke much more closely than Mindy, but that doesn’t mean I didn’t get to […]

Review: Rainy Day Friends – Jill Shalvis

Review: Rainy Day Friends – Jill Shalvis

Rainy Day Friends was a very emotional read. I cried so hard! But I also laughed and swooned very hard! Story: Lanie had really been through hell and back before Rainy Day Friends even started. She felt like nothing in her life was right anymore, which is one of the reasons why she took a temporary job at a winery away from her LA home.

Lanie doesn’t want her employers to know just what it is she’s running away from, and Rainy Day Friends definitely […]

Review: The Good Luck Sister – Jill Shalvis

Review: The Good Luck Sister – Jill Shalvis

The Good Luck Sister is yet another feel-good romance from Shalvis! I really enjoyed getting to know Tilly and Dylan better! Story: The Good Luck Sister is short, but sweet. It’s set several years after Lost and Found Sisters, and it shows Tilly all grown up. But still confused about life. And still sharing her wisdom at the beginning of the chapters. I loved that while Tilly was now an adult, there were traits of her character she still had from her teens. She is not one to forgive easily, and if she feels like she’s been faulted, she’s stoic. The Good Luck Sister showed that she is capable of letting the past go, though. But not without the other […]

Review: Lost and Found Sisters – Jill Shalvis

Review: Lost and Found Sisters – Jill Shalvis

Shalvis hit it way out of the ballpark with Lost and Found Sisters! What a strong story, with characters who made my heart both swoon and ache. Lost and Found Sisters is a bit different from Shalvis’ usual novels, but still has the same feel to it. A deep story, where Quinn, the main character makes several discoveries about herself, which in turn brings her to move out of LA to a small village to try to find her way, while also getting to know some people that will become very important to her. The main theme in Lost and Found Sisters is family, and what exactly family is. Does it have to mean those people we are related to […]
