Book Description

"Hot, sweet, fun and romantic. Pure pleasure!" -- Robyn Carr, New York Times bestselling author on Simply Irresistible

Love awaits you in Lucky Harbor . . .

Simply Irresistible
After losing her boyfriend and her job, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim her inheritance-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. She sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if she can give the inn the makeover it needs. Enter Jax, a tall, handsome contractor who knows exactly what Maddie needs...

The Sweetest Thing
Helping her sister set up the family inn is just the thing to make Tara forget her ex-husband and focus on her new life. Until she meets a sexy, green-eyed sailor determined to keep her hot, bothered, and in his bed. When her ex reappears, Tara must confront her past and decide what she really wants.

Kissing Santa Claus
NASCAR driver Logan Perrish returns to Lucky Harbor, Washington, with love in his heart and a ring in his pocket. But can Sandy Jansen forget the past and give him a second chance? Or will Logan be spending another Christmas alone?

Under the Mistletoe
There's no place like home for the holidays. And the Lucky Harbor Bed & Breakfast is bursting with festive lights and good cheer. But for Mia, Christmas is turning out to be anything other than merry and bright. Her recent break-up with her boyfriend Nick has made her return bittersweet. But then a surprise arrives, when Nick follows her to town bearing gifts - and asking for forgiveness.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic collection September 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Simply Irresistible
Maddie Moore is at a crossroads in her life. She's lost her job, ditched her jerk of a boyfriend, and isn't in the best financial condition. With nothing left for her in L.A., Maddie heads to the small town of Lucky Harbor, Washington, to check out an inheritance left to her and her two half-sisters by their mother. What she finds is a run-down inn and two siblings who are nearly strangers to her. Maddie, the middle sister, has always been known as "the Mouse." But Maddie wants to make a go of restoring and running the inn, which means she has to find her voice and convince her sisters to at least consider a trial period. It also means that the inn needs some serious work done on it. Maddie gets more than she bargains for when she hires contractor Jax Cullen. Jax turns Maddie on like no other man has, but with her life in chaos and her decision to stay in Lucky Harbor in peril, is Maddie really ready to take a chance on falling in love with Jax?

There are some stories that make you smile and give you a warm, cozy feeling reading them. Simply Irresistible is that kind of book. Jill Shalvis has delivered one of the most delightful books I've read in a long time. I loved everything about the aptly-titled Simply Irresistible.

Maddie, Tara, and Chloe are three half-sisters who seem to have nothing in common except one free-spirited, now-deceased mother. They're virtual strangers at the beginning of Simply Irresistible, and part of the charm of the story is watching them start to become a family. I adored Maddie's kindness and humor, Tara's surliness and veiled caring, and Chloe's zest for life and outrageous comments. In Simply Irresistible, Maddie also finds herself and her personal journey could have made the book fantastic on its own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sisters, Love and Second Chances.... October 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Jill Shalvis has created a wonderful series and Christmas in Lucky Harbor is a perfect example of why it's so successful.

Simply Irresistible and The Sweetest Thing are both warm, loving stories that deal with two of my favorite things... families and second chances. When three sisters who share the same mother, but have different fathers come to Lucky Harbor to look at the dilapidated resort their mother has left them, two of them want to fix it, sell it, and move on and one is hoping that it's a chance to start over and connect with the sisters she barely knows. The Inn isn't the only thing that needs some work... the sisters, Tara, Maddie and Chloe are as different as night and day and their dealings with one another have been few and far between so it's going to take some effort to turn them into any kind of family. (One of the things I loved best in this story was the snappy dialogue between the sisters.) It doesn't take long to figure out that underneath it all, there is true affection between them and they're going to need it since coming to Lucky Harbor means working hard, spending lots of money they don't have and trying to avoid falling in love. And for middle sister Maddie, she is fighting it for all she's worth when contractor Jax Cullen becomes more than a handsome distraction. But the past has followed each of the sisters to Lucky Harbor and Maddie has to believe in love again before she can move on with Jax and claim everything she's ever wanted.

In The Sweetest Thing, oldest sister Tara is fighting demons from the past and regrets that she can't seem to put behind her, especially since one of the regrets is the drop dead gorgeous love of her life, Ford Walker whom she left behind in Lucky Harbor more than 17 years ago.

4.0 out of 5 stars Didn't let me down :) February 15, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read Head Over Heels by Jill Shalvis a few weeks ago and I loved it. Christmas in Lucky Harbor is actually the first two books of the Lucky Harbor series, Simply Irresistible and The Sweetest Thing and I loved them just as much as Head Over Heels!

Simply Irresistible, book one in the Lucky Harbor series, is about Maddie, a 29 year old who,all of a sudden inherits an inn along with two sisters from her late mother and she finds herself moving across states in the hope of restoring it. Shy, klutzy and mousy Maddie is a great heroine and start to the Lucky Harbor series and Jax is just absolutely perfect!The Sweetest Thing, book two, is focused on Tara and Ford as Tara tries to deal with her dramatic past and move on, but it's incredibly hard considering her ex is back in town trying to win her back and she's got trust issues with the one guy she wants most.

All I can say is, Jill Shalvis has done her magic again. I found myself smiling,giggling,crying and even falling in love a little bit while reading this book! As usual, Shalvis has developed amazing characters and a sigh-worthy romance. Realistic, wonderful and completely charming, the Lucky Harbor series is an absolute must-read for any fan of the romance genre! All the three sisters are unique, relatable and wonderful heroines that you can't help but love. I cannot thank Grand Central Publishing enough for giving me a copy of all the three books of the Lucky Harbor series. I'm actually a little sad that with all the three sisters hooked up, there's no more Lucky Harbor stories left for me to read.
