The Family You Make

Summary: 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.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Big. Huge. Fan of Jill Shalvis’s romantic comedy books. I love her characters- they are fun and memorable and just give me good feelings.


Plus the covers are perfectly eye catching 🙂


What I liked:

The cover! So pretty. Love the colors!

Jane. She was tough and vulnerable at the same time. Wanting love, but unsure if she could trust it.

Maybe a bit spoilery- but I liked how the men in this book seemed to know what they want and showed the ladies they were there for them in all the ways that the ladies would let them be there.

Bottom line: The Wildstone series got me hooked on Jill Shalvis, but Sunrise Cove is off to a great start.
