The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis ~ Blog Tour

The Sweetest Thing (A Lucky Harbor Novel)

Product Description

Two Men Are One Too Many . . .
Tara has a thousand good reasons not to return to the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. Yet with her life doing a major crash-and-burn, anywhere away from her unfulfilled dreams and sexy ex-husband will do. As Tara helps her two sisters get their newly renovated inn up and running, she finally has a chance to get things under control and come up with a new plan for her life.
But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping Tara hot, bothered . . . and in his bed. And when her ex wants Tara back, three is a crowd she can't control-especially when her deepest secret reappears out of the blue. Now Tara must confront her past and discover what she really wants. If she's lucky, she might just find that everything her heart desires is right here in Lucky Harbor.

My take on this book:
I have been anxiously awaiting this book since I finished the first book in the Lucky Harbor series titled "Simply Irresistible" and I must say this book was definitely worth the wait. The author pulled me right back into the town of Lucky Harbor with such ease that I literally read this book in one sitting.
 This series of books revolve around three half sisters Maddie aka the mouse, Tara the steel magnolia, and Chloe the wild child, who are brought together in Lucky Harbor after the death of their mother Phoebe. In Phoebe's will she leaves a run down inn to the girls and they decide to stick around and turn it into what they hope will be a successful B&B.

In this installment Tara is getting a second chance at love with an old flame from her past. When she was seventeen she spent the summer in Lucky Harbor and had a relationship with Ford Walker, but the relationship ended when she wound up pregnant and gave her baby up for adoption. Fast forward seventeen years  Tara is back in Lucky Harbor after a failed marriage ,she is trying to help her sisters get the B&B up and running.She thought she was over Ford, but now that she is back those old feelings are being stirred up all over again, and if that's not enough her ex-husband shows up wanting a second chance. Who will she choose?
I love the relationship that the sisters share. The banter that goes on between them often had me laughing out loud. Because each of the sisters were raised so differently they each have different outlooks on life.While they are still getting to know each other, that bond that only sisters share is certainly there. Tara's character is very uptight, it was nice to see Ford was able to get under her skin.
I loved this story which is funny but also has enough twists to keep you flipping the pages to see how things will turn out. I will be anxiously awaiting the next installment in this fantastic series that's simply irresistible.
