About Lost and Found Sisters

Lost And Found Sisters is the new novel from New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis, a story of friendship, love, family and sisterhood, for fans of Susan Mallery, Kristan Higgins and Robyn Carr.

Life can change in an instant... After losing her sister in a devastating car accident, LA chef Quinn Weller seems to be getting her life back on track. 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 appears, revealing a bombshell secret and mysterious inheritance in the small town of Wildstone, California. On impulse, Quinn heads up the coast and finds herself drawn to Wildstone's simple pleasures...and the handsome, dark-haired stranger who offers friendship with no questions asked.

But there's another surprise to come. The inheritance is something earthshattering, that will make Quinn question everything she knows about herself and her family. Now with a world of possibilities opening up, Quinn must decide if this new life is the one she was always meant to have - and could finally give her the fulfillment she's searched so long for.


 My review of Lost and Found Sisters


 
Lost and Found Sisters is the first in a new series by Jill Shalvis. and after reading the book's blurb, I was eager to read it. This is the first ever Jill Shalvis book that I have read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! This book is hard to review without giving any spoilers away but I'll do my best to try and tell you why I enjoyed this book so much. 

Quinn Wellers lives in LA and is a thirty-year-old sous chef. On paper she lives the perfect life. She is doing her dream job, has wonderful caring, yet interfering parents, and an on off relationship with Brock, her childhood sweetheart. But inside Quinn is slowly dying. She is not living, she is merely existing after the death of her sister, Beth, two years previously. Quinn's life dramatically changes while she is waiting to be served in a coffee shop. She is approached by a lawyer who tells her that she needs to go to Wildstone, California, as there are urgent matters that she needs to sort out... and this is exactly what Quinn does, as a means of escape and an adventure.

We then are introduced to Mick Hennessey, who although left Wildfire many years ago to live and work in San Fransisco, keeps returning to the area to tend to his family home and business after the death of his father. Mick is everything you want from a romantic read. He is handsome, charming, polite and incredibly witty. I dare anybody not to fall in love with him. He too, just like Quinn, is a complex character who is chasing his very own demons.

This book examines what it means to escape your past and how you can truly find yourself and be happy. We watch as Mike and Quinn get to know each other, their chemistry is instant, but is what they share simply because they are both passing through? Or is it something much deeper? They also both have their own inner struggle.

The town of Wildfire changes Quinn. The way in which the area is described breathes life into the novel. I really dud feel as if I was living with her in this very different type of town, where everyone knows your business and secrets are hard to hide. Lost and Found Sisters is a light and enjoyable read. It is a book about hope, about family and that love will simply conquer all. As this is the first book in the Wildfire series, I am very much looking forward to reading book two.

With thanks to the publisher and Bookbridgr for a paperback copy for review purposes.
