Review: The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis

One of my guilty pleasures is a well-written romance, and if it includes a good dose of humor, so much the better!

I was delighted to find a great romance mixed with fun in Jill Shalvis's latest book, "The Sweetest Thing."

About The Book:

Tara has a thousand good reasons not to return to the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. Yet with her life doing a major crash-and-burn, anywhere away from her unfulfilled dreams and sexy ex-husband will do. As Tara helps her two sisters get their newly renovated inn up and running, she finally has a chance to get things under control and come up with a new plan for her life.

But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping Tara hot, bothered . . . and in his bed. And when her ex wants Tara back, three is a crowd she can't control-especially when her deepest secret reappears out of the blue. Now Tara must confront her past and discover what she really wants. If she's lucky, she might just find that everything her heart desires is right here in Lucky Harbor.

I was just delighted with "The Sweetest Thing." Although it is the second book in Jill Shalvis' "Lucky Harbor" series, it was easy to pick up on the back story of Tara Daniels and her two quirky sisters, Maddie and Chloe and their exciting lives that revolve around getting their inheritance from their equally quirky mother, the Lucky Harbor Beach Inn, up and running.

Jill devotes this book to oldest sister Tara, who has returned to Lucky Harbor to find that the past has been waiting for her in the form of Ford Walker, her first love. As she and Ford dance around trying to decide whether to renew their steamy relationship, the past keeps popping up to surprise Tara at every turn. Will the calm, cool, and collected lady finally relax to accept her new live and beginnings in Lucky Harbor?  You can only find out when you read "The Sweetest Thing!"  And trust me, you'll be glad you did!
