Publisher Description

"A book to savor--and share." —Susan Wiggs, New York Times Bestselling Author

The New York Times bestselling author of Rainy Day Friends and Lost and Found Sisters returns to Wildstone, California...

Brooke Lemon has always led the life she wanted, wild adventures—and mistakes—included, something her perfect sister, Mindy, never understood. So when Mindy shows up on Brooke’s doorstep in the throes of a break-down with her three little kids in tow, Brooke’s shocked.

Wanting to make amends, Brooke agrees to trade places, taking the kids back to Wildstone for a few days so Mindy can pick up the pieces and put herself back together. What Brooke doesn’t admit is she’s just as broken . . . Also how does one go home after seven years away? It doesn’t take long for Brooke to come face-to-face with her past, in the form of one tall, dark, sexy mistake. But Garrett’s no longer interested. Only his words don’t match his actions, leaving Brooke feeling things she’d shoved deep.

Soon the sisters begin to wonder: Are they lemons in life? In love? All they know is that neither seems to be able to run far enough to outpace her demons. And when secrets surface, they’ll have to learn that sometimes the one person who can help you the most is the one you never thought to ask.

Sisters and their “quirks”

I wasn’t sure about the Lemon sisters and their “quirks” but they sure did grow on me. Anyone who’s been married for awhile goes through highs and lows, Mindy and Linc were no different. Just living the day to day life of raising children, working, and still trying to be a loving and attentive spouse is hard, without the speculation and assumptions that couples jump to inside their heads. And, of course, Brooke and Garrett’s past had to be dealt with, avoidance, especially on Brooke’s part, doesn’t make feelings and circumstances go away. And, of course, on top of all of that, the sisters had to do some work on their relationship. There might not have been a lot of “action” and suspense but there sure wasn’t a dull or boring moment in this book!

Great, feel good story!

This might be one of my favorite reads of the year so far. And sort of reminded me of the movie, Raising Helen. In that the "party" sister ends up taking care of her nieces and nephews - in this instance while her sister had a much needed mental health break. And Brooke gets a look into the life her sister Mindy has as mom extraordinaire. And why Mindy needed a little break away from her life.

I liked that this wasn't just one person's story, it was really more than that. Brooke and Mindy both had their HEA - in whatever way that worked for them - I'm not telling you which because I want you to read it and figure it out for yourself. And maybe take a look inside and see if you're more of a Brooke or Mindy and maybe learning to be kind to yourself.

Brooke might be my favorite of the sisters, just simply because she seems to be a little more loose and less stressed - at least before Mindy took her break.

Either way, this will be a re-read for me when I need a funny, feel good book.

For a writer who doesn’t have a sister, she portrayed sisters well. You love them, hate them, fight with them, fight for them! This is a great book, I laughed, I cried. Jill Shalvis is one of my “pre-order” authors, I love her romantic comedies. This is one of her best, more women’s fiction than romance (but romance & laughs, too). I think book clubs everywhere will be reading this one. Hope Princess Millie gets her tiara back.
