From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes a friends-to-frenemies-to-sisters story… And then add in a love story (okay, two love stories). Shake. Stir. Read on a lazy summer day at the beach.

Brynn Turner desperately wishes she had it together, but her personal life is like a ping-pong match that’s left her scared and hurt after so many attempts to get it right. In search of a place to lick her wounds and get a fresh start, she heads back home to Wildstone.

And then there’s Kinsey Davis, who after battling serious health issues her entire twenty-nine years of life, is tired of hoping for . . . well, anything. She’s fierce, tough, and pretty much the opposite of Brynn except for one thing: they’re half-sisters. Kinsey is keeping this bombshell, and a few others as well. Long time frenemies from summer camp, there’s no way she’s going to tell Brynn they’re related.

But then Brynn runs into Kinsey’s lifelong best friend, Eli, renewing a childhood crush. He’s still easy-going and funny and sexy as hell. When he gets her to agree to a summer-time deal to trust him to do right by her, no matter what, she never dreams it’ll result in finding a piece of herself she didn’t even know was missing. She could have a sister, love, and a future―if she can only learn to let go of the past.

As the long days of summer wind down, the three of them must discover if forgiveness is enough to grasp the unconditional love that’s right in front of them.

Against the picturesque coastal Maine setting that she evokes so well, bestselling author Holly Chamberlin creates a heartfelt story of family bonds and new beginnings . . .

It came as no surprise to anyone in Yorktide when glamorous Carol Ascher fled the little Maine town for New York City. While Carol found success as an interior designer, her younger sister, Bonnie, stayed behind, embracing marriage and motherhood. She even agreed to take in Carol’s teenage daughter during a tumultuous patch. Now both their girls are grown and Bonnie, recently widowed, is anticipating the day she’ll retire to Ferndean House, the nineteenth-century family home on the rocky Maine coast.

But forty-five years after leaving Yorktide, Carol suddenly announces that she’s moving back—into Ferndean. Bonnie is indignant. She’s the one who kept the homestead in order and tended to their dying mother. Now Carol expects to simply buy her out? As far as Bonnie is concerned, Ferndean is part of their heritage—not just another of Carol’s improvement projects, to be torn apart and remade according to her whim.

The entire Ascher family is in flux, uncovering secrets that upend their relationships. Carol’s longing to be welcomed home is fueled by a painful truth she’s carried for years. It will take an extraordinary summer—in a remarkable place—to lead these women back to each other, buoyed by the tides of friendship and forgiveness.

Dangerous secrets force Caradine Scott on the run from Grizzly Harbor—with Alaska Force leader Isaac Gentry in hot pursuit—in the irresistible new romantic suspense from USA Today bestselling author Megan Crane.

After an explosion that should have killed her, Caradine barely escaped her criminal family by leaving her old identity behind. These days she runs the Water’s Edge Cafe in a rugged little town on the edge of nowhere, vowing never to let anyone close to her again.

After his career in the military, Isaac is back home playing the part of an unassuming local in Grizzly Harbor, while also overseeing Alaska Force’s special ops work as the founder and commanding officer he once was in the Marines and beyond. He has better things to do than obsess over a woman who claims she hates him, but every glimpse he gets of the vulnerability beneath her prickly exterior is a distraction . . . and a challenge he can’t ignore.

When Caradine’s demons catch up with her, her cafe isn’t the only thing that blows up. Her past pushes them together, and closer to a future that’s been waiting for them all this time. They just have to survive long enough to enjoy it.

Sparks fly between a famous YouTuber and a former Army Ranger in this delightful enemies-to-lovers romance from the USA Today bestselling queen of small-town love stories.

Welcome to Highland Falls, a small town where love is always in the air.

In just a few months Abby Everhart has gone from being a top influencer to an unemployed divorcée living out of her car. So inheriting her great-aunt’s homestead comes at the perfect time. Abby heads to Highland Falls, North Carolina, to spruce up Honeysuckle Farm before putting it on the market for some much-needed cash. But instead of finding a charming getaway, she discovers a serious fixer-upper, complete with a leaky roof, overgrown yard, and a reclusive — albeit sexy — man living on the property.

Ex-Delta Force soldier Hunter MacKenzie has faced war and loss, but nothing has quite prepared him for an outgoing redhead who’s determined to turn his life upside down. Hunter doesn’t want to get involved with anyone, especially a city girl who plans to sell the only place he’s ever felt at home. But the sparks between them are undeniable. Spending time with Abby is easy. Convincing her to stay for good is another matter entirely.

 

Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping by!💜

REVIEW:ONLY US BY SUSAN MALLERY

12737072

MY REVIEW:

ONLY US is the sixth book in the Fools Gold series. I am really enjoying this series and I truly loved this story more than the last one and I really loved the last one. Susan Mallery has become an auto buy author and I’m excited to read all of her previous books.  This series just keeps getting better and better!

 
Rina has been in love with Cameron since the first day she saw him a year ago, but the love she has for his daughter is special to Rina.  Cameron hires Rina to take care of Kaitlin, take her to school, watch her after school and cook nightly dinners for them. She doesn’t want to do anything to threaten their relationship, so she knows that she can’t tell Cameron that she has fallen in love with him.

 

She finally finds the courage one night to tell him the truth and things don’t end up exactly how she planned. Cameron is afraid.   His wife walked out years ago, leaving him with a newborn baby. He is closed off and never realizes he needs any one else in his life.  After Carina decides to leave when he just wants to be friends, things change so fast.  Will Cam and Rina end up together in time for Christmas?  You will have to read ONLY US to find out!  ONLY US was a quick read for me. It is filled with friendship, love, heartbreak and beating back your fear. It is a lovely little holiday read that will warm your heart.

 

ONLY US is only the fifteenth book by Susan Mallery that I have read but I’m determined to finish this series this year. Susan Mallery pulls her readers right in from the very first page and never lets them go. She makes her readers really care about all of her characters that they spend late nights finishing up her books because they can’t stop. Well that’s what happened to me anyway. Once I started reading, I had a very hard time putting ONLY US down. I am so excited to continue this wonderful series of a town where there is a man shortage. It’s so hysterical when a new man shows up!

 

FROM GOODREADS:

Pet groomer Carina Fiore wants nothing more than to confess her feelings to the man she loves. She’s drawn to veterinarian Cameron McKenzie’s good looks, caring nature and especially his devotion to his young daughter. But he’s also her boss and a good friend. Putting her heart on the line could cost Rina both her job and their friendship forever.

Since his divorce, Cameron hasn’t been willing to trust his heart–or his daughter–with anyone else. For months he’s pushed away all thoughts of taking Rina in his arms and kissing her, unwilling to risk their friendship for a single night of pleasure. But when a kiss under the mistletoe unlocks the simmering passion between them, Rina and Cameron may just find love for the holidays after all…

 

Thank you for stopping by and have a relaxing day!💜

THROWBACK THURSDAY!

throwbackthursday

 

Throwback Thursday meme is hosted by Renee@It’s Book Talk and is a way to share some of your old favourites as well as sharing books that you want to read that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on your TBR list while you continue to pile more titles on top of them 🙂 These older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, you’re welcome to use Renee’s pic as well. If you’d just link back to her @ It’s Book Talk she’d so appreciate it.

 

Today I’m showcasing a book that I read a few years ago and loved!

FROM GOODREADS:

Gerri can’t decide what’s more devastating: learning her rock-solid marriage has big cracks, or the anger she feels as she tries to repair the damage. Always the anchor for friends and her three angst-ridden teenagers, it’s time to look carefully at herself. The journey for Gerri and her family is more than revealing—it’s transforming.

Andy doesn’t have a great track record with men, and she’s come to believe that for her a lasting love is out of reach. When she finds herself attracted to her down-to-earth, ordinary contractor—a man without any of the qualities that usually appeal to her—she questions everything she thought she wanted in life.

Sonja’s lifelong pursuit of balance is shattered when her husband declares he’s through with her New Age nonsense and walks out. There’s no herbal tonic or cleansing ritual that can restore her serenity—or her sanity.

Miraculously, it’s BJ, the reserved newcomer to Mill Valley, who steps into their circle and changes everything. The woman with dark secrets opens up to her neighbors, and together they get each other back on track, stronger as individuals and unfaltering as friends.

 

MY REVIEW:

 

FOUR FRIENDS by Robyn Carr pulls at your heart strings from the very beginning. Robyn never lets them go and keeps you involved and interested in the story until the very last page.

 

Gerri, Sonja, Andy, and now BJ are the four friends. They get up at six AM to walk together. Well all but BJ. She is new to the neighborhood and kind of quiet. Eventually she finds herself right in the middle of all their lives, helping them when she didn’t even know she was doing it or meaning to. She comes with a lot of baggage and eventually Gerri finds out just how much. She has a very traumatic past and keeps the details close to her heart. She does this to protect her children as she always has. Her kids are her life.

 

Gerri and Phil have been married for twenty-four years. They are rock solid and so is their marriage. Or at least, Gerri always thought so until one day when Phil’s assistant lets it slip out about an affair Phil had years ago. Gerri is blindsided of course and kicks Phil out of the house. She becomes the crazy woman to her kids because she made their dad go away. She can’t trust him anymore and can’t forgive him either. Is she ready to throw twenty-four years away that quickly? You are going to have to read FOUR FRIENDS to find out.

 

Sonja is the intense friend. She is married to George and basically controls his whole life. She believes she is doing only good for him. Cooking him meatless meals, watching his cholesterol levels and his blood pressure. She has fountains and peaceful waterfalls all over their house to keep his good karma in line. She is a feng shui consultant and a royal pain in the butt sometimes but her friends love her and so does George. Until one day, when he drops a bomb shell on her. He has packed a bag and he is leaving. He can’t take her healing stuff anymore, wants to eat bad stuff, have a drink, spill stuff on his shirts, and be happy. She is smothering him and goes off the deep end when he leaves.

 

Andy is married to Bryce and has just learned that he has been cheating on her. She was married before but she thought Bryce was different. He is younger than her and just doesn’t like being tied down. They lasted three years before Andy throws all his stuff out on the front lawn and throws him out of the house. Her kitchen is being remodeled during all of this and Bob, the man doing the remodeling, lends his ear to Andy becoming a good friend to her. He is nothing like she is used to. He is older, balding, not buff at all like the other men she has been attracted to. She finds herself falling for him. Is it a rebound fall? Is it just him being sympathetic and having pity on her because of all she is going through? Read FOUR FRIENDS…….believe me, you will love it!

 

I always get so excited when I see Robyn has a new book out! I get crazy until I can get my hands on it and devour it! FOUR FRIENDS does not disappoint. I fell in love with all the characters and found myself cheering for them in different ways. Many issues are brought up in the book……living with teens, sex, fidelity, homosexuality, drugs, and marital abuse just to name a few.
