Overview

Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.

In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.

Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.

The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes-and mouth-are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.

    WOW! Loved this book.

    I have never read Jill Shalvis books. From the start I could not put this book down, great and funny and lots of heat. Reminds me of Nora Roberts with a little extra in there.

    Sweet and well written. Maddie is the middle sister of three and is afraid to be invisible, so she tries to become different. Very enjoyable.

    Bridget's Review

    I want to move to Lucky Harbor and befriend Maddie. She's a very likable character who is easy to relate to. I love the relationship between Maddie and her sister, it reminded me of my relationship with my sister. A very fun, breezy read.

    This is the first time reading this author's work. Thought the book was well done with a fun, interesting story. In fact, I had a hard time putting it down. Have already purchased a few more in the series and can't wait to read them. E

    Great read

    This is the first time reading this author and i loved her. I laughed until i cried at some of Maddie's uncomfortable moments. The only reason i did not give it 5 stars is because there were really to many sex scenes in the book. They tastefully written but just a few to many. Can not wait to read more of this author.

    Absolutely worth the time

    And more than worth the money. I've never read the author before, but that changes starting now. What could have been a trite and formulaic theme actually came out as a decently rounded set of female characters. Characters who weren't sugary, but had hearts with more than a few bruises. The male characters had less depth, but their cameraderie actually had me laughing aloud---something I rarely do. Just enough heat to keep it interesting, without the trash vernacular that can be so off-putting. I like the way she balances between silly & serious, loving & lusting, fearing & trusting.
    Pardon me while i go find her next book. And I hope you enjoy this one.

    XXX

    WARNING! Lots and lots of explicit sex! This is a book for mature readers only. I am surprized my eyeballs did not melt. This author either has had a of experience, a great imagination or read a lot dirty books. I admit I learned a few things. It was about 250 pages long. The editing was pretty good and I really liked the three sisters. I think this will make a nice series. The descriptions and other details were very well done. Some readers will find the sexual details offensive, but I found them....uh.....instructive and entertaining. At least it was not rape or orther types of violence against women.

    Good grief people!

    So don't read the long reviews, but Ms. Klausners review didn't ruin the book. But good grief anyone should be able to figure out that a long review is going to tell more than a short one!

    Reviewers...

    Dear Harriet Klausner...I do not want to know everything that happens in the book!!!You destroyed the book for me. Why would I want to read it now?? Just tell me if you liked it, if its worth reading, did it make you happy that you read it, was it time well spent...those are the things you are supposed to tell us. If you cant do that then DONT REVIEW..

    Ban Harriet Klausner

    She ruins every book. If she wanted to be a book reviewer......oh maybe she was but got fired for ruining the books for everyone. We should be allowed to block her and decide if we want to read her review.
    A simply yes or no from her would be good.

    This book is for those who love a steamy romance book

    I would recommend it to anyone who loves lots of hot steamy scenes and doesn't mind foul language. I thought the sisters were very interesting and I wanted to know more about them but and I I just couldn't get past the sex and language. If Jill Shalvis changes her writing to tone down the sex and language I would love to read her books,

    Funny, touching, and steamy!... literally couldnt put it down

    LOVE THIS BOOK! I could not put it down and read it all the way through in one setting. This book had me laughing out loud in some parts and in others ... well lets just say that if my husband wasnt at work, I may not have read it all the way through without an interuption or two. So pleased to have found another author to add to my list of must reads and even more pleased to see that there are 6 books in the series to look forward to, one for each day of the week... almost.
