Review: Simply Irresistible (A Lucky Harbor Novel) by Jill Shalvis




Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.
In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so
not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.

Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.

The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes-and mouth-are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.


I want to move to Lucky Harbor and befriend Maddie.  She's a very likable character who is easy to relate to.  I love the relationship between Maddie and her sister, it reminded me of my relationship with my sister.  A very fun, breezy read.

I wish I could start over somewhere else. Since I can't, I guess I could settle for reading a good book!

This does sound like a fun read and a lighthearted book. Would love to read the outcome with the Inn, her sisters, and the handy man. Could be very good reading.

Something light-hearted to read would be a nice change from my usually suspense novels.
