A city girl looking for love and adventure hopes her wishes will come true in Wishful, California—in this romance by the New York Times–bestselling author.
Numbers cruncher Katie Kramer has been a good girl all her life and yet she’s never found a place to fit in. So now, at rock bottom and her wit’s end, she’s wishing for some good karma. Staring up at the night sky—which is barely visible in LA—she falls asleep dreaming about a twinkling, falling star, and makes three wishes: The first is to experience a real-life adventure complete with amazingly athletic feats and danger. The second is for some good sex. And the third is to belong. Really belong somewhere. Anywhere.
The next day Katie reads an ad about a small, far-away mountain town named Wishful, and an expedition company that needs a bookkeeper. Could it be a dream come true? When Katie arrives in the quirky little town, she finds the Getaway Inn . . . and Cameron Wilder. Cam’s lived a thousand lifetimes in his thirty years, and there’s so much he wants to show Katie. Most of all that there’s no way to escape karma.
“Jill Shalvis sweeps you away.”—Cherry Adair
The first in a new series by veteran romance author Shalvis hits the ground running. After Katie Kramer survives a devastating accident, she resolves to "live life balls out" and leaves L.A. for a job with Wilder Adventures in the Sierra Madre mountains. Hunky Cameron Wilder, a champion snowboarder whose career ended with his own devastating accident, appears, and the attraction is instant for both of them. But neither wants a relationship so it's up to the Wilder clan to make them realize that they were meant to be together. What elevates this beyond the standard of the genre is the Wilders, particularly the subplot around Cameron's surrogate mother, Annie, and her husband, Nick. Their relationship problems and love for each other are more authentic than what's found in most romance novels. The Wilder men make great romance heroes while Katie is a great heroine: fearless but vulnerable, bright, charismatic and a great match for Cameron, who is classically reserved and brooding. By focusing on the Wilder family as much as she focuses on the couple, Shalvis thoroughly engages readers as she finds the perfect women for the other Wilder men.
