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.

I am having a very slow reading week - lots of other projects going on - but FINALLY finished my first book for the #BacklistReadathon !! This wasn't my favorite Shalvis book by a long shot - it's borderline so-so for me. I liked the actual story and the characters, but way too much of this was just Maddie and Jax lusting for each other and acting like it's a horrible betrayal that the other hasn't shared all their deep-dark secrets despite the⬇️

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) fact that they've known each other TWO WEEKS. Seriously, they start making out the DAY they meet. Like you do you, but I think it's ridiculous to be mad about someone not sharing everything about their past immediately. And it's hard to have good conversations when you literally just take each other's clothes off every time you're together 🙄 I did like the set up for the series so I'm reading book 2, but this one was a little too ⬇ 2w

After reading a Lucky Harbor Novella I had an itch to reread the first book in the series. Loved it just as much as all the times before, and got an extra bonus that it took place at Christmas time! #WinterGames2020 #ReadNosedReindeer

Day 2 of the #Top20Series is the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. I would recommend anything by Shalvis. Her books are amazing and she's an auto-buy author for me. But this is the first series I read by her and holds a special place in my heart. They are romance but her characters are relatable and so funny. I always laugh reading her books.

1. Rarely.
2. Y‘all are probably going to hate me, but I don‘t even want to own a fictional pet. (I‘m not anti pet for other people, just not interested for me.)
3. Just one???? Hermione Granger, I need some magic in my life, and she‘s kick ass to boot.
4. Lucky Harbor. I‘m a sucker for small towns.
5. 👍🏻

I love Jill Shalvis's novels. Just feel good, mushy, gushy, happy endings! This book reminds me of Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold series, which is one of my favorites.

Enjoyed! A nice escape read featuring a small-town + siblings + meddling townspeople 👉🏻 these are some of my favorite features in any type of story.

The three sisters remind me of myself + my two sisters-they made me laugh + smile throughout. I liked Jax and Tara (who are not a couple) but the other characters' issues + secrecy grated on me at various times. STILL! This is a fun series beginner + I look forward to continuing with the next book.

AnnieReads Loved this one! 6y

The Lucky Harbor series has been recommended to me for AGES. Since the cover of this first book looks pretty
winter-y + cold weather-y, I've decided that now is the time for me to give it a go (even though it was 77 degrees here today in my part of NC).

Has anyone read the Lucky Harbor series? Or Jill Shalvis? I've read one of her other books before + I liked it 👍🏻

EloisaJames I like them very much! Sweet, funny, great escape 6y
Angieville This is one of my favorites of hers. 6y
mcipher I read this one and liked it, but not any others. I had a stack of this series but sold them to prepare for moving. 😞 Books are so heavy and I mostly read from the library, but it hurts to be practical!!! 😩 6y
