Love this series!
I really enjoyed reading this book, Tara and Ford had great chemistry. And I liked seeing Maddie and Jax from the first book as well. There were parts of the book that would squeeze your heart but not to the point that is was depressing. I love the setting of these books, and the 3 sister's all getting to know each other and how they all bring something special to how they run the B&B. Great series, can't wait for Chloe and Sawyer. (Who seems really hot, by the way)

I love this series
The second book of Jill Shalvis¿ Lucky Harbor Series continues where the first one ended. This second book focuses on older sister Tara Daniels, The Steel Magnolia.
Once you understand Tara and her life, I think the description ¿Steel Magnolia¿ is a little harsh. She¿s a magnolia, because she¿s from the south and she¿s ¿steel¿, because she tries to protect herself the best way she knows how. Which is by not really showing what she¿s thinking or feeling.
Tara had one magical summer, when she was seventeen. That summer will continue to live with her for the rest of her life. In some aspect, it will haunt her.
If you read the first book, then you know that Tara can be what seems to be a cold person. Especially to one bar owner, named Ford Walker.
I¿m not the type of reviewer who likes to tell you what happens in the book. I think it kinda of spoils it for the reader. I will say that Tara and Ford end up having a pleasant surprise that neither of them expected.
This book also introduces you to Logan Perrish, the sexy Nascar driver ex-husband. You can find more of his story in ¿Small Town Christmas¿.
I can¿t wait to read the next book in the Lucky Harbor series. Trust me, neither can you.

Another charming book in the series! I really don't tend to like second chance/reunion romances but this one is so well done. The angst is handled with realism and demands only the emotions that are due. I love an uptight heroine so watching Tara ease into herself was great. Ford coming to terms with himself was also a joy and they were great together. Throw is a great cast of secondary characters and we have a great read on our hands!

I enjoy series books, with characters that appear across the series. Jill Shalvis writes in a style that I can enjoy, & it gives me a vacation from everyday life. I plan to read the whole seriesWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Highly Recommend This Series
Lucky Harbor Series is the best series I've read in a while. The characters are well written and interesting. The first three books are of the sister's renovating an Inn left the them by their deceased mother. The romance and friendships are great.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I emjoyed this book. Loved the storyline, loved the male lead. The only thing that kept me from loving the book was the overly neurotic female lead. Im looking forward to more books in this series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Rekindled Romance - With the Whole Town WatchingWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Tara, aka The Steel Magnolia, more than a little of a control freak, is certainly the prickliest and hardest to hook into of the three Phoebe daughters, but as is often the case, she may be the most vulnerable internally.
She and Ford have History: a teenage Summer of Love, a baby daughter given up for adoption. Despite the years that have gone by, there are still physical and emotional connections, even more complicated when her ex-husband comes into town to try to win her back. In a small town like Lucky Harbor, there are no secrets, and the town gossip, Lucille, posts FaceBook updates, photos and even a poll as to which man Tara will choose.
And when their daughter, Mia, comes to town in search of her biological parents, AND also begins a summer romance, it feels very odd for both of them to be on the other side of that equation.
Light, funny, the family dynamics among the sisters are wonderful, the chemistry between Tara and Ford is hot; we get updates on lovebirds Maddie and Jax, and peeks of what's to come between Chloe and Sawyer, but not to the degree that any of them hijack the main storyline. There are a few places where it feels a little info-dumpy, and I think the author missed a golden opportunity to tie Tara's guilt over giving her baby up for adoption to her own feelings of abandonment by her own mother.
Great "beach read," but there are many deeper levels to it, and the ending satisfies.
