The Lemon Sisters

Summary: 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.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

I’ve really enjoyed my yearly visits to Wildstone with Jill Shalvis. The stories are funny and interesting- there are some heart touching moments, a little sadness, a few life lessons and characters that I can root for as they work their way through “fictional” life.

One of the good things about the Wildstone series is that basically each book is its own story. Like you may hear an update from a character from a previous book- but you don’t have to read them in order to enjoy the series (although I do recommend checking out all 3 books- plus they will look gorgeous in your beach bag 🙂 So be sure and pick up Lost and Found Sisters (Wildstone #1) and Rainy Day Friends (Wildstone #2) for more reading enjoyment!

What I liked:

The cover. So beachy and beautiful 🙂

Brooke and Mindy. How their sisterly relationship evolves over the course of the book.

The humor that Jill uses in her book- I found myself laughing and laughing at situations or certain witty dialogue. Jill perfectly balances the humor with the more serious parts of this book- because while it does have a perfect beach cover- there is def some serious subplots.


Bottom line: For me, The Lemon Sisters was no lemon. It’s got WIN all over it.
