"I thought Wildstone was safe."
"It is. The trouble isn't going to come from the unknown. It's going to come from me. Go, Quinn. Now. And lock your door."
She stared up at him, mesmerized by the thought of him being trouble, images going through her head of him proving it to her, all of them involving little to no clothing and a bed.”
Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis is the entertaining debut installment in her new Wildstone series. While the primary focus of this tale is Quinn’s life journey, the book does not short in the sweet and hot romance department in the least. This entry is the story of chef Quinn Weller and Mick Hennessey and Mick is awesome!
Since her sister passed away suddenly in an accident, Quinn has only been going through the motions of living. From all appearances, her life is perfect. She has a gorgeous boyfriend who is eager to put a ring on her finger, a loving family and a career in Los Angeles. Then, a monkey wrench gets inserted into the mix when she is blindsided by news of a mysterious inheritance accompanied by a revelation that her parents have not been truthful with her. Needing to escape, she gets in her car and heads to the charming, small California town of Wildstone to check out what this secretive bequest entails.
As she arrives in Wildstone, she is understandably emotionally strung out. She experiences a panic attack and is attended to by sexy Mick and his golden retriever, Cooper. Mick is in Wildstone temporarily to assist his Mom after his father passed away. He has a life elsewhere in San Francisco and is dealing with issues of his own.
When Quinn discovers that her inheritance isn’t money or property, but something else, she will need all the support system she can as she will need to step out of her comfort zone over and over. I was pulling for Quinn as she adapts to the newness of her situation and grows into her new responsibilities. Her friends will play important roles.
Wonderful supporting characters include Cooper who is obviously much-loved by Mick (making me love Mick more.) Then… there’s a lesbian couple who are nothing short of a hoot! AND, not to be forgotten is Quinn’s little sister, Tilly. I especially enjoyed the heart-pulling quotes from Tilly’s diary which headlined each chapter.
This book is being marketed as women’s fiction. In the past, I’ve not been a big fan of women’s fiction because some can be downright depressing and, hey, I do like a good HEA. That said, this is from Jill Shalvis who has never failed to draw me into any of her stories and who always produces amazingly satisfying endings. So… while Lost and Found Sisters admittedly does include a bit more family drama than is the norm for Jill’s books, it’s still a wonderful romance set in Wildstone, located a few miles north of Los Angeles. AND there’s a pretty awesome HEA making me really glad that I gave this book a chance!
Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from Lost and Found Sisters:
“If it has tires or testicles, it’s gonna give you trouble.”
“Some people aren't meant to stay in your life. But, that doesn't mean you can't carry a piece of them in your heart.”
“There's a big difference between want and need," she muttered to herself, picking her pad and pen back up. "I mean I want a bikini body, but I need chicken nuggets.”
Lost and Found Sisters is superbly narrated by the incredibly talented Karen White. She has done a great job with every book I’ve ever heard her narrate and this audio is no exception. She even aces Cooper’s woof. Her voicing of all the characters – male, female and animal – sounds realistic and exudes the proper emotion. Her impersonations remain consistent through-out. Bottomline: If you enjoy audios and can pick up Lost and Found Sisters in audio, your enjoyment of the story will be exponentially increased. Period.
Lost and Found Sisters is a delightfully endearing romance populated with characters who will steal your heart. It is an emotional rollercoaster alternating between belly-laughs and near-tears. Most of all, it’s pertaining to love, laughter, family and relationships and about living life fully though all of its ups and downs. I’m counting down the days until the projected June 2018 release of Rainy Day Friends, the next entry in this series.
My full review is posted at Reading Between the Wines Book Club. Please check it out there!
Ever lost a sister then gained a sister so soon after your loss? In that gaining did you ever find out that were not who you thought you were? Bowling ball lodgings coming out of nowhere knocked two sisters into yesteryear findings, today's confusions and muddled feelings of the future. Add a touch of young love, mix in mature love and youI've got yourself a delightful Shalvis book you won't be able to put down!
