Yay or Nay? Yay.
Why? Grace is one of my favorite characters in the series. She’s a survivor, a go getter, and sassy to boot. Any woman would be terrified to be in a town she’s never lived in before, alone, and without a job to support herself but not Grace, she had her misgivings but I loved that she just jumped in with both feet and did her best. She gave “fake it til you make it” a new meaning with how persistent she was.
Then there was Josh. I felt bad for the guy, he was a single dad living with some major guilt where his disabled sister was concerned. He was trying his best just like Grace but he was so overwhelmed with work, guilt, and worries that he was doing what he didn’t want to do and that was neglect his family. I don’t think I’ve read a book like this where it’s the guy who is frazzled, overwhelmed, and taking care of his family on his own. Jill Shalvis put a nice spin on that and I loved how Grace kind of swooped in unexpectedly and saved them all without meaning to.
It wasn’t an easy save though, Josh’s disabled sister Anna was carrying around her own baggage and she wasn’t the easiest character to like. On the one hand I totally sympathized with how she felt about her disability but on the other she was a selfish brat who refused to see how hard Josh was working to try and make up for not being the brother she needed back when she got hurt. Grace certainly gave Anna a reality check though and she did it without being cruel just blunt. Grace was good for everyone involved and they were good for her. I loved her chemistry with Josh and how their romance was laced with moments of what a family life between them could be. All in all it was a believable romance and it certainly felt like it developed at a natural pace.
Click It or Skip It: Click It. Forever and a Day is easily the most heartwarming of the Lucky Harbor series so far.
Grace is quick to get to the bottom of Anna’s issues with being wheelchair bound, and becomes the support that Anna needs to grow and learn how to adapt to her new situation. She is also quick to bond with Josh’s son, not to mention the good doctor. Dr. Josh is a little slow on the uptake when it comes to everything regarding his family, but being overworked between his dad’s practice and the ER shifts at the hospital accounts for that.
His relationship with Grace is reluctant but hot, but is it enough to keep Grace from leaving when she gets a great job offer?
The plot was strong, but I really wish that there was a follow up to Anna’s story in the series, of her finding love of her own. Still, a good read, with nice hints to the next set of three couples.
The heroine was Grace Brooks, 3rd member of the chocoholics and her HEA with Emergency Room doctor Josh Scott.
Grace is trying to find a new job in her field (accounting) because she quit her prior job when boss made it known sex was part of his expectations for her job performance. She jumped in her car and ended up driving from CA to the Washington State little town of Lucky Harbor. She befriended Mallory and Amy, and the trio became the chocoholics.
To make ends meet, Grace does everything, flower delivery, modeling, book keeping etc. She answers a call from Dr. Josh Scott who needs a dog walker and she walks into a life more chaotic than her own.
Josh's parents died in a car accident and left his younger sister a paraplegic. On top of that, Josh's baby mama left him with their son Toby. Toby got a little dog named Tank who needed a walker, hence Grace's new job.
Of course Toby's nanny quits, Josh's sister Anna couldn't fulfill the responsibilities as she was busy making everyone miserable, so it's Grace to the rescue.
This is the clash of the Girl who won't stop running from her parents expectations and the Guy who is carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders. It got crowded really fast, but nothing like love to strip away the unnecessary things and make people face the music.
I will admit that I liked Amy and the Ranger's story better. I also liked the 3 sister's story better. However, Jill Shalvis tells a great story, with great characters and just engaging you until the end. I like Grace finally making her stand and I like that Josh finally really accepted help. They were just what the other person needed. This series is one of the best CRs out there!
