This Chick Read: Accidentally on Purpose (Heartbreaker Bay #3) by Jill Shalvis

If a group of friends worked in the same neighborhood, became friends you could rely on, wished on a fountain for love, and then found it, you’d be reading the Heartbreaker Bay series from Jill Shalvis….or watching old episodes of Friends. Regardless, you’d be enjoying the hell out of yourself! Continue reading “This Chick Read: Accidentally on Purpose (Heartbreaker Bay #3) by Jill Shalvis”

This Chick Read: One Snowy Night (Heartbreaker Bay #2.5) by Jill Shalvis

We were introduced to Rory and Max in The Trouble with Mistletoe, the second novel in the Heartbreaker Bay series.  Rory works for Willa in her pet store, and Max has a dog who he brings in for grooming a lot more than a dog probably needs to get groomed, just so he can talk, or stare broodingly at Rory. In this short novella, we learn that Max and Rory have a past when he offers to drive her home for Christmas.

This Chick Read: The Trouble With Mistletoe (A Heartbreaker Bay Novel) by Jill Shalvis

I am loving this Heartbreaker Bay series! It’s set in San Francisco where we get to enjoy  learning more about a fun group of friends who work and live in the same neighborhood.  This time the story revolves around Willa, the owner of a pet store / pet boutique / pet wedding planner. Yep, it’s a pet a la mode store. Willa, who we met in Sweet Little Lies, has had a crush on Keane since high school.  Unfortunately, he doesn’t remember her at all, which seriously pisses her off.

This Chick Read: Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis

This is the third book in the Cedar Ridge series and so far it is my favorite.  Jacob Kincaid is Hud’s twin, from the second book in the series My Kind of Wonderful.  Jacob left home at eighteen after having an argument with his brother, entered the Army Special Forces, and didn’t speak to his brother again.  He returns from a mission, having lost his best friend and brother in arms, and wants to go home to Cedar Ridge and reconnect with his family, and reunite with his brother Hud.   Continue reading “This Chick Read: Nobody But You by Jill Shalvis”

Friday at the #RT16 Convention in Las Vegas

This Chick Read: My Kind of Wonderful by Jill Shalvis

Jill Shalvis, the author of the Lucky Harbor series, is my go to author for quick humor and an adept emotional touch.  My Kind of Wonderful, the second book in her Cedar Ridge series, definitely has both of those attributes.   Continue reading “This Chick Read: My Kind of Wonderful by Jill Shalvis”

This Chick Read: Come on Closer by Kendra Leigh Castle

I had just finished the mystery, Missing Pieces by Heather Gudenkauf,  and was ready for a little lighthearted romance.  Come on Closer was my first novel by Kendra Leigh Castle, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the cover was very reminiscent of a Jill Shalvis cover, so I thought there were good odds I’d like it.  I’m a sucker for sweet romances Continue reading “This Chick Read: Come on Closer by Kendra Leigh Castle”
