When life gives you lemons…
Brooke Lemon has always led the life she wanted, wild adventures – and mistakes – included, a fact that her perfect sister Mindy never understood. So when Mindy shows up on Brooke’s doorstep in the throes of a breakdown with her three little kids in tow, asking to switch lives with Brooke, she’s shocked.
Wanting to make amends, and find a way back to being sisters, Brooke agrees to trade places with Mindy for a few days so she can put herself back together…without admitting she’s just as broken. Her sister needs her though, so she takes the kids and returns to Wildstone. But how do you face home – and the man you left behind – after seven years away?
The Lemon sisters are about to learn you can’t outrun your demons – but if they can overcome their differences they might realise that the one person who can help them the most is the one they never thought to ask.

My Thoughts On The Lemon Sisters by Jill Shalvis
The Lemon Sisters by author Jill Shalvis starts with the character of Mindy showing up on her sister Brooke’s doorstep, in complete meltdown mode. So, Brooke takes the kids to give Mindy some respite, as a favour, in the pursuit of a much needed breakaway for Mindy. Unbeknown for Brooke, the breakaway befits both sisters. Well, not so much a break for Brooke, more a return home to face her past. She has her own demons to face with secrets held close. Conversely Mindy is facing her own battles and inner turmoils of motherhood, marriage and life.
This latest book in the Wildestone series by author Jill Shalvis is a read not to be missed. It’s a heartwarming story full of family challenges and relationship turmoil. A few twists and turns keep the pages moving, and Brooke and Mindy were a hoot to read,. Garrett and Linc add more emotion and hilarity right alongside Brooke and Mindy. Each of the character’s dialogue had this reader chuckling as the chapters flowed.
A top pick in reading that is undeniably unputdownable.

The Wildstone Series
Most people wouldn’t think of a bad Santa case as the perfect Christmas gift. Then again, Molly Malone, office manager at Hunt Investigations, isn’t most people, and she could really use a distraction from the fantasies she’s been having since spending the night with her very secret crush, Lucas Knight. Nothing happened, not that Lucas knows that—but Molly just wants to enjoy being a little naughty for once . . .
Whiskey and pain meds for almost-healed bullet wounds don’t mix. Lucas needs to remember that next time he’s shot on the job, which may be sooner rather than later if Molly’s brother, Joe, finds out about them. Lucas can’t believe he’s drawing a blank on his (supposedly) passionate tryst with Molly, who’s the hottest, smartest, strongest woman he’s ever known. Strong enough to kick his butt if she discovers he’s been assigned to babysit her on her first case. And hot enough to melt his cold heart this Christmas.

Until she needs a favour, and it’s a doozy. Something precious to her has been stolen and there’s only one person with unique finder-and-fixer skills that can help – Joe. It means swallowing her pride and somehow trying to avoid the temptation to throttle him – or seduce him.
No, Joe didn’t call after the kiss. He’s the fun time guy, not the forever guy. And Kylie, after all she’s been through, deserves a good man who will stay. But everything about Kylie makes it damned hard to focus, and though his brain knows what he has to do, his heart isn’t getting the memo.
As Kylie and Joe go on the scavenger hunt of their lives, they discover surprising things about each other. Now, the best way for them to get over ‘that kiss’ might just be to replace it with a hundred more.
