Back Cover Blurb:

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.

My Review:

Simply Irresistible. That’s definitely the best way to describe this first novel in Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series. Readers are introduced to this very welcoming small town and many of its residents in a way that made me want to move there without a second thought. The utter realism of the tale combines with the easy connection that I felt with the characters to make me feel as if I were part of the story. She also writes the type of romance that you dream about having for yourself. I loved how easy yet messy it all was.

This is yet another Shalvis novel that had me in its grips from cover to cover. The way that she melds emotion with the everyday, and romance with living life was absolutely captivating.
