あらすじ・解説

The New York Times best-selling author of Rainy Day Friends and Lost and Found Sisters returns to Wildstone, California, where two completely opposite sisters - who are still nursing wounds from the past - realize they need each other more than they think.

When Brooke’s older sister, Mindy, shows up at her door with her three kids in tow, she barely recognizes her sibling, who looks like she’s on the verge of a total breakdown. While adventurous, wanderlust-filled Brooke was always the problem child, eager to slip free of Wildstone and its small-town constraints, Mindy was the golden child, who never had a hair out of place or a GPA below 4.0. The Mindy who arrives at Brooke’s apartment, however, is a far cry from the ever-perfect doctor’s wife.

Brooke’s further stunned when Mindy asks to trade places with her for a few days so she can pick up her pieces and put herself back together. What Mindy doesn’t realize is that Brooke is just as broken. Her sister needs her though, so Brooke takes the kids and returns to Wildstone.

But how does one go home after seven years away and what feels like a lifetime of secrets? 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, or so he says. Only his words don’t match his actions, leaving Brooke feeling things she long ago shoved deep.

The sisters begin to wonder if the childhood taunts were true: Are they lemons in life? In love? True or not, they know one thing - you can’t run far enough to outpace your demons. And when long-dead secrets surface, they’ll have to overcome their differences and learn that sometimes the one person who can help you the most is the one you never thought to ask.

sister love knows no bounds . . . but

I loved revisiting Wildstone, CA. It was filled with family, friends, loves old and new, but this time there was something different about Wildstone.

Sometimes we just don't know where we belong. Sometimes we just need that one flicker of light to draw us back to the beginning. Sometimes that one hand held out as a lifeline will be what is needed to make you life feel whole again. All this an more was needed to make Brooke Lemon feel whole again.

Brooke was the Lemon sister that faced her life full speed with all abandon. That was until that day her world changed. Then she just ran and hide. She rarely ever returned back home to the place she grew up. She was not ready to face that past that had haunted her and sends her in to flashbacks at in opportune moments.

Mindy Lemon was the sister that had it all together. Or so that was what everyone on the outside thought until that day she was not all together. That was the day she and her sister realized that no mater what they were there for each other. And one sister would get the break she needed while the other sister when back to confront the life she left behind.

Jill Shalvis gives us the love, the sorrow, the pain of being a survivor of an accident, family separation, family responsibilities, family re-connection, and facing the past. Things were not easy but we get through it all.

Erin Mallon did a fab job with the voices in diction, pitch, tone and consistency. I loved the distinctions made with each character even with the children. There was no hesitation on what character was saying what. Clear. Clean. Concise.

Exactly what I needed

Jill Shalvis never fails to deliver a fun, sexy light story. She’s the perfect one to read in between heavier books and especially needed in 2020.

Sweet story if forgiveness and family

The storyline was believable and modern. However, I really wish I had made this book a beach read instead of an Audible read. The narrator was extraordinarily annoying and I found it difficult to stick with the book as a result. I won’t give up on this author though.

So good

This is Jill Shalvis writing at its best. You laugh you cry you fall in love.
I am getting used to this narrator. Still not my favorite but this book shines like the amazing book it is.

Wish this had been better...

Cheesy. So very cheesy. The character conversations did not seem authentic. I even found myself rolling my eyes at certain points in this book.
