Review- Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis

Summary-

From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes her first women's fiction novel—an unforgettable story of friendship, love, family, and sisterhood—perfect for fans of Colleen Hoover, Susan Mallery, and Kristan Higgins.

They say life can change in an instant…

After losing her sister in a devastating car accident, chef Quinn Weller is finally getting her life back on track. She appears to have it all: a loving family, a dream job in one of L.A.'s hottest eateries, and a gorgeous boyfriend dying to slip an engagement ring on her finger. So why does she feel so empty, like she's looking for a missing piece she can't find?

The answer comes when a lawyer tracks down Quinn and reveals a bombshell secret and a mysterious inheritance that only she can claim. This shocking revelation washes over Quinn like a tidal wave. Her whole life has been a lie.

On impulse, Quinn gives up her job, home, and boyfriend. She heads up the coast to the small hometown of Wildstone, California, which is just a few hours north, but feels worlds apart from Los Angeles. Though she doesn't quite fit in right away, she can't help but be drawn to the town’s simple pleasures…and the handsome, dark-haired stranger who offers friendship with no questions asked.

As Quinn settles into Wildstone, she discovers there's another surprise in store for her. The inheritance isn't a house or money, but rather something earthshattering, something that will make her question everything she thought she knew about herself, about her family. Now with a world of possibilities opening up to Quinn, she must decide if this new life is the one she was always meant to have—and the one that could finally give her the fulfillment she's searched so long for.

Review-

I love Jill Shalvis' books. Her Lucky Harbor series is one of my all time favourite series which I have reread more times than I can count. I love how she combines romance with humor and sensuality. Lost and Found Sisters is a little something different from her. Firstly, it falls under the women's fiction category. Secondly, the length of it is definitely longer. But I didn't mind that. I'm more than happy to read more by Jill Shalvis.

So this is the story of Quinn, our heroine. Quinn works as a chef in Los Angeles. It has been two years since her sister passed away in a car accident and Quinn continues to feel numb of her surroundings. When a surprise bomb gets dropped on her she moves to the small town of Wildstone to figure things out for herself. 

I loved Quinn as a person. She was sweet and sad but she didn't hesitate to do the right thing. Quinn was quick to help anyone in need and she just wanted to take care of her loved ones. Quinn thought something was wrong with her because she couldn't feel emotions but actually she felt too much. Quinn was scared to show her vulnerability but the town of Wildstone gave her the courage to do just that.

I also really liked Tilly. She is a teenager with a chip on her shoulders. Life hasn't been fair to Tilly and she's just trying to figure out her relationship with Quinn. Mick is our hero. The chemistry between Quinn and Mick was great and their conversations were really cute and funny. Know that the romance isn't at the heart of this book but it is still an integral part of it. I also liked meeting the myriad of new characters who made up the residents of Wildstone.

I have a little bit of mixed feelings around this book. I mean, I do like it, Jill Shalvis' writing is fantastic and all the warm and mushy feelings are there. But I know I enjoy her proper contemporary romances more. But that's just my preference. I think anyone who enjoys Women's Fiction or contemporaries in general would enjoy Lost and Found Sisters.
