The Family You Make: A Novel (The Sunrise Cove Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
USA Today Bestseller
“Fall in love with Jill Shalvis! She’s my go-to read for humor and heart.”— Susan Mallery, New York Times bestselling author
Beloved New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis begins a new series—Sunrise Cove—set near beautiful Lake Tahoe, with a heartwarming story of found family and love.
During the snowstorm of the century Levi Cutler is stranded on a ski lift with a beautiful stranger named Jane. After strong winds hurl the gondola in front of them into the ground, Levi calls his parents to prepare them for the worst…but can’t bring himself to say goodbye. Instead, wanting to fulfill his mother’s lifelong wish, he impulsively tells her he’s happily settled and Jane is his girlfriend—right before his phone dies.
But Levi and Jane do not.
Now Levi’s family is desperate to meet “The One.” Though Jane agrees to be his pretend girlfriend for just one dinner, she’s nervous. After a traumatic childhood, Jane isn’t sure she knows how to be around a tight-knit family that cherishes one another. She’s terrified, and a little jealous. But an unexpected series of events and a host of new friends soon show Jane that perhaps this is the life she was always meant to have.
As Jane and Levi spend more time together, pretend feelings quickly turn into real ones. Now all Jane has to do is admit to herself she can’t live without the man she’s fallen in love with and the family she has always dreamed of.
Fall in love with Jill Shalvis! She's my go-to read for humor and heart.-- "Susan Mallery, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

The characters in this book are looking for someone to trust and love but do not know open up to love and trust.
This is the first book in a new series and I am looking forward to reading the next one.
Of course, they survive (wouldn't be much of a book, otherwise), and when they get back to town, Levi's family is all about meeting this woman. In yet another attempt to make his mom happy, Levi gets Jane to agree to be his pretend girlfriend and attend his parents 4oth wedding anniversary dinner in a few weeks. Oh and they should spend some time getting to know one another, so it looks real to the family. As they do, their attraction grows and both find themselves questioning how pretend this really is.
There is also lots of substory involved here, as Jane has good reason to trust no one, but has settled in with a friend she is coming to view as a sister. Charlotte has her own issues, and when she begins to fall for her next door neighbor, Matteo, theirs is also a great story. Watching these two scarred women discover that they are indeed worthy of love is a treat, as is the entire story. Oh, and my favorite part? The 40th anniversary dinner, which had me laughing out loud!

For some reason, I just couldn’t like the heroine, Jane. There’s funny snarky, then there’s b*tch. Levi came across as a sensitive, sweet guy, (maybe a bit too much)? I don’t particularly like to see the hero get walked all over. I enjoyed the secondary story between Charlotte and Mateo better. Regardless, a good read, kept my attention and definitely sold me on the author.
The story is well written with so much detail and humor, that you'd want to be there and be part of the family yourself.
Because of the details, it's easy to understand the difficulties people go through. It builds understanding and empathy for the ones that have problems to commit to a relationship. And there are more and more of those these days.
