Series: Wildstone #1
Published by William Morrow Genres: Contemporary, Women's Fiction
From the moment I picked up my first Jill Shalvis book I knew I would always read anything she wrote. Now it looks like Ms. Shalvis is dipping her toes into woman’s fiction with the first book in the Wildstone series with Lost and Found Sisters. I admit I don’t read a lot of woman’s fiction and prefer romance but Ms. Shalvis brought this story to life and made it special.
Quinn Weller is a successful Chef but two years after her sister Beth’s death she still feels empty. She has had a good life but getting through the days is her top priority until the world she thought she knew is turned upside down while waiting to get coffee. A lawyer approaches her and with staggering news that has her not only questioning the life she is used to and comfortable in, but what will be in store for her future. After packing a bag she is headed to Wildstone, CA to finally get some answers about the questions she has after meeting with the lawyer.
Mick Hennessey is back in Wildstone to help his mother after his father’s passing to do repairs on her house, but he can’t wait to get back to the life he has made for himself in San Francisco. Until he meets a woman having a panic attack on the beach. The more time he spends with this incredible woman the more he thinks that just maybe coming home isn’t so bad after all.
As Quinn settles in this new town she is finding out she has more ties to Wildstone that she originally thought and the people there are growing on her. In fact she is healing and feeling more alive than she has in two years which has her questioning if this is where she truly belongs.
At first I wasn’t sure if I was really going to enjoy the Lost and Found Sisters but as I started reading I was not only impressed with the plot but also that it included some challenges for both characters. While there was a romance blooming the main focus of the Lost and Found Sisters was Quinn and Mick working through their past and looking forward to what the future has in store for them, whether it be separately or together.
I truly fell in love with these new characters and this town that Ms. Shalvis has created. I believe the Wildstone series has a bright future and I am really looking forward to meeting the next couple and seeing how this series will develop. If you are looking for a fun, sweet and a perfect summer read, this is it.
