    The Lemon Sisters by Jill Shalvis is a 2019 William Morrow Paperbacks publication I m great I mean, I did just spent a full minute looking for my phone while using it as a flashlight, but everyone does that, right Brooke and Mindy The Lemon Sisters of Wildstone couldn t be different Brooke is a free spirit who once had a challenging and exciting career, until a helicopter crash left her with PTSD She s made a mess of things with her family and with Garrett, the guy she left behind, locking everyone out of her life as she copes with her sadness all alone Mindy, on the other hand, has it all together She s a baker, married to the perfect guy, with three adorable children She s organized in the extreme, and her life never got close to messy, not like Brooke But it s Mindy, who shows up on Brooke s doorstep is the process of an epic meltdown Being a perfectionist evidently comes at a cost, and Mindy is paying her dues Although Brooke really doesn t want to go back to Wildstone, and she really, really, really doesn t want to face Garrett, the guy whose heart, she once broke, she knows it is time to suck it up, for her sister s sake So, she agrees to switch places with Mindy, giving her sister a break from her kids, while her she tries to get her life back together I LOVED this story Mindy s situation will resonate with most parents, especially moms struggling with body image after having children However, her situation is compounded by her husband s long work hours, which means she s been running the show solo Her need to be in complete control has driven her a little bonkers and she s mad at that perfect husband of hers, and now resentment has begun to settle in for the long haul Brooke s story is very emotional, but her part of the story is also sprinkled with hilarity and of course some super steamy sexy time But, don t let your guard down, you will definitely need a box tissues before all is said and done But, while the sisters keep readers on their toes with their individual dramas, the story also examines the relationship they have with one another They have a complex relationship, each one harboring regrets, wishing they knew how to repair the damage The dynamics between sisters always fascinate me, so I especially enjoyed this thread of the story Shalvis, as always, injects a healthy dose of her trademark humor into the story, to offset the heaviness I literally guffawed on a few occasions This book has just the right balance between women s fiction, contemporary romance, and family drama, with a jaw dropping conclusion that had me laughing and crying at the same time I don t know how JS does it, but she is one of the most consistent authors out there, in my opinion I m always super excited to read her books and wait with eager anticipation for every new one that comes out This one is exceptional, however, and while I don t usually add the recommended tag line, in this case, I think the book will appeal to a broader audience It s not just a romance, it s a touching story about life, marriage, and family, as well So, yes I highly recommend it 5 stars

    RATING 4.5 STARSThe Lemon Sisters is book three in the Wildstone series by Jill Shalvis I have loved this series from the start but had no idea what to expect with this book and wow, was I surprised This book can definitely be read as a stand alone Brooke Lemon left Wildstone, CA seven years ago for Los Angeles She is a producer for a Travel Network show When Brooke left Wildstone, she also left her life behind including one very important man whom she hasn t seen or spoken with since She also let her relationship with her sister dry up That s why, after all this time, she s shocked to find her older sister, Mindy, pounding at her door with her three kids in tow Mindy was always the perfect sister, married a doctor, lives in a perfect home, never a hair out of place But that isn t at all who Brooke found at her door This woman was a mess Mindy is frazzled, overwrought and seems to be completely falling apart So Brooke takes the three kids back to Wildstone on her own and leaves her sister at her house to have a bit of a vacation Brooke knows, though, that going back to Wildstone is going to be difficult She has her own demons she needs to face.There are reasons that Brooke never returned home Things no one knows The only person that knows some of it is the man she left behind, Garrett Montgomery Now, going back to Wildstone, Brooke has the chance to finally take care of some unresolved things Once she does, once she apologizes for what she did, she should be able to go back to L.A and start fresh Or so she thought.Garrett never thought he d see Brooke again And here she was One touch and he knows that all the feelings are still there But she nearly broke him seven years ago He can t let her do it again His dead heart beat in his chest for her, making him feel things he d thought were long gone Which meant he was so much messed up than he d thought It turns out that Mindy s kids are pretty darn amazing Brooke is loving getting to know them again And then there is Garrett She never imagined that all of these feelings would come rushing back She said what she wanted to say As soon as Mindy comes home, she can leave But she isn t ready yet She also needs to fix her relationship with her sister And make sure that Mindy and her husband Linc are back on track Then she ll leave.Usually when you read a romance, the book concentrates on the two main characters, the main couple What I loved about this book is that wasn t the case at all Yes, we have the relationship between Garrett and Brooke which was beautiful, heart breaking, sweet, sexy and just fantastic But, we also have the relationship between Mindy and Linc, between Mindy and Brooke, and the growing bond between Brooke and the kids The chapters are told from each of their points of views so we get everyone s perspective This book had a little bit of everything, plenty of sweet, sexy, romantic times And also some great humor Most of all, the characters were just all wonderful They were all good people, just a little bit broken But their love for each other, the bond they almost let wither away, brought them back together The epilogue was so unexpected and wonderful What a way to end the book Perfection.For about this book and so many , come and visit me at Carol s Crazy Bookish World.https groups 44036

    IT S ALIVE I think this is Jill Shalvis best book since her last one I just wrote a review and deleted the whole bloody thing I m struggling to get my feeling down as to how much I LOVED The Lemon Sisters To be honest, my family are not helping me in this endeavour My son is chatting with his mate VERY LOUDLY My hubby is in the kitchen baking his famous Banana, Butterscotch Pudding which I appreciate and listening to music VERY LOUDLY Now, it s raining and it s VERY LOUD STUFF IT I M GOING TO HAVE A SHOWER That did the trick For some reason, I have my best ideas in the shower, and again, I found the answer The reason why I love Jill Shalvis s romance stories is that her characters are looking for their happy place That s it The heroine isn t looking for a billionaire to drape her in diamonds She s not looking for a superstar to guide her into the spotlight A biker mafia man hitman isn t called for to show her a bit of the dark side Jill Shalvis creates heroine s that are just looking for someone to share their happy place Someone to share the good times with the bad The person who will put them first and expects the same These women just want to love and be loved, put first and not forgotten about I get it because it s realistic and, in some ways, that is what we should all be hoping to attain.I LOVED meeting and getting to know Brooke and her sister Mindy, Linc, Mindy s husband, and Garrett, Brooke s first love These four people were awesome in their own way but completely flawed They all have outstanding attributes that made them shine, alongside characteristics that, while negative, also made them themselves No one is perfect, they realise this and they know expecting perfection is unrealistic What made them even better characters was their ability to acknowledge their flaws and accept that they needed to work on them The Lemon Sisters took me on an emotional journey and left me extremely satisfied I laughed, cried, squirmed and sighed While the main four characters were riveting, we were also treated to some very special additional characters Mindy and Linc s kids were so cute and I loved seeing their quirkiness accepted and encouraged Brooke s friends from her job were amazing and I really would love a story for both Tommy and Cole I think that was their names.Seriously, I can not recommend this book highly enough I guess the reason why I loved it so much was because it put me in my happy place Last night, I was lucky enough to hit the trifecta a fantastic book to read, a glass of wine in my hand and hubby making me dinner and singing off key to make me smile Who could ask for Thank you, Jill Shalvis, your words made my day Stacey is Sassy, received an advanced copy of this story The copy provided is not the final copy and may be subject to edits and changes.

    Favorite Quotes You re not fat, you re just easier to see.Millie came back into the room wearing black tights with strawberries on them and a strawberry red dress She pointed to the pockets I ve just got to fill my snack holes and I ll be ready to go Brooke thought this was brilliant Every outfit should have snack holes Millie nodded sagely.Her hair looked like she d come out the wrong end of an explosion What if reincarnation is real and in your next life you come back as a dog Or a cat Or worse, a man You ll have wasted it She shrugged I d be a good cat I m bitchy and I don t like anyone Want to know the things a guy doesn t know he s bad at until he s married Making the bed, laundry, being correct, and breathing.You couldn t handle me even if I came with instructions.Mindy eyed the crowd Everyone s skinny and beautiful Yeah, so feel sorry for them because of all the Taco Tuesdays they ve clearly missed oh my God, you re also wearing my sandals At my funeral, make sure to sit me up so I can see which of my clothes you ve stolen to wear Junior year of high school, you came over to my family s house to watch a movie You and my grandpa promptly fell asleep And around halfway through, still dead asleep, you popcorn farted loud enough to wake the dead Pop, pop, pop He grinned My grandpa fell out of his chair And the old man s dentures had gone skittering across the room.He was her person, but even amazing, he wanted her to be his person.My Review I have delighted in each of the five cleverly written Jill Shalvis books I ve been lucky enough to obtain, I don t think it would be possible for her to churn out a less than stellar product as her narratives comfortably flow with a smooth fluidity and are all too easy to fall completely into This story featured a family tree rife with quirky OCD traits through several generations, which added extra layers of humor as well as complications for the feisty characters who were not always likable yet were endearing and sympathetic The storylines and writing style were highly amusing and pleasantly entertaining while hitting all the feels with thoughtful insights and emotive observations I have quickly become an avid devotee or her smart wit and crafty word wrangling Jill Shalvis has mad skills

    4.5 This is just a one time thing Stars We return to the town of Wildstone and its residents for the third book in Jill Shalvis s hugely enjoyable series of the same name The Lemon Sisters gives us Brooke and Mindys stories although Brooke is in the forefront, Mindy s story is very much intertwined with hers, especially as at the start she turns up unannounced on Brooke s LA doorstep with her three hilarious and adorable kids in tow while obviously being on her last nerve in the middle of a meltdown We are the Lemon sisters we survive everything and keep on ticking Agreeing to take care of your almost estranged sisters kids and returning to a hometown she s has barely set foot in for around seven years raises a lot of red flags for Brooke, a lot of water has passed under the bridge since then, but one thing hasn t changed her chemistry with the boy man she left behind Garrett Montgomery She had no idea what was wrong with her, but all of her feelings for him from that time in her life seemed to stick in her throat This is a pair that have history a lot of which she has tried to box up in her brain and ignore , and towards the end of their relationship the memories are definitely not happy ones, something Brooke is hoping she can rectify while she is in town, and try to come to terms with in her heart at the same time She d destroyed him one, and he had no intention of letting her get another shot Having Garrett as her next door neighbour has its advantages as she tries to wrestle through the day to day running of three children all with their own very different wants and needs, but dealing with the elephant in the room between them on a personal level is a whole other degree of difficult, especially when the man in question tries very hard to stay as far away from her physically and emotionally as he possibly can This is a man you come to understand that has been hurt and abandoned on than one occasion in his past and he definitely isn t looking for a repeat performance with Brooke or even giving her the opportunity to rebuild those bridges that were burnt between them all those years ago I ve never lied to you Never will One big problem though is he also can t deny the burning chemistry that they still have and the fact that he still wants her with every part of himself Brooke is not far behind him on those feelings, but the fact her life is in LA and his is firmly set in Wildstone brings us a whole other set of issues Add into the fact her sister Mindy and husband Linc are also trying to work through their own marital and relationship issues, as well as meddle in Brooke and Garrett s you are looking at a book when the story never stopped moving and the plot kept me invested in everyone and everything that was playing out Every second with you was an adventure a heart thumping, adrenaline rush adventure Millie, Mason Maddox offered a huge chunk of light relief in this one, with Brooke discovering how awesome he niece and nephews are in the early stages, to Linc realizing how much he has missed time spent with his young family in the second half, they were all their own little characters and just as important to the book as a whole for me I will admit I struggled with Mindy a little at points, but overall not enough for it to detract from my general enjoyment of the story, another winner from Jill and I hope we get to return to Wildstone again very soon Love makes you do some pretty stupid shit ARC generously provided by the author, in exchange for the above honest review.

    5 Forever and Ever StarsMy first read by Jill Shalvis and boy it didn t disappoint It was a wonderful romance It felt real and everyday I could easily relate to all the characters From the first page to the last, I smiled, laughed, empathized, rooted, and loved The Lemon Sisters, Brooke and Mindy, were tuck as thieves when they were young, but as adults, they drifted apart but by Brooke s doing But when Mindy needed Brooke, Brooke stepped in and decided besides helping her sister it was also time to address her past and make amends with everyone, including the love of her life, Garrett Montgomery, whom she left seven years ago and broke both their hearts.Brooke steps into Mindy s life for a few days while Brooke gets her head back on Brooke s niece and nephews Millie, Mason and Maddox are adorable but also a handful But Brooke falls in love with them and she is definitely going to help Mindy and her husband, Linc with their marriage But to Brooke s surprise, Garrett happens to be their next door neighbor, who is also Linc s best friend and also remodeling their house I guess Brooke will have to deal with her past sooner rather than later.The banter between Brooke and Garrett is full of sexual tension and emotional feelings They are each broken but their bond is a forever type of bond if they can only get past their feelings of love lost and thrown away Reconnecting is both painful and glorious for Brooke and Garrett but because of their past, sorting feelings and giving forgiveness is hard and complicated But this author does a slow burn with these two characters that felt very true and satisfying Besides Brooke and Garrett, Mindy and Linc s relationship is also front and center and the troubles that affect them are what a lot of couple go through in marriage, busy careers and kids And their kids, don t get me started about how much pizazz they added to this story The Lemon Sisters are in crisis but they are also still in their own crisis with each other The dynamics of this story never gets tangled While there are a few different plots going on in the story, they are all nicely intertwined and it never gets messy or sloppy There is humor infused in the story as well as moments that are heartfelt and emotional While everyone does get a HEA, it doesn t just happen automatically Hard work, compromise, communication, forgiveness, hope and love must all work together This story was sooooo easy to read, the drama was everyday life and the emotions were very heartfelt This story was also sexy without intimate detail I loved how the author brought this family together and showed that family is family no matter what happens I thoroughly enjoyed the writing, the storytelling and definitely want to read from this author I highly recommend for all romance lovers advanced copy provided by Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review

    Title The Lemon SistersSeries Wildstone 3Author Jill ShalvisRelease date June 18, 2019Cliffhanger NoGenre women s fictionJill Shalvis is one of my auto buy authors Whether she s writing women s fiction or contemporary romance, her stories always resonate in some way with me They re effortless, sexy, and a guaranteed comfort read Of course I liked some better than others, but I haven t come across one that I didn t enjoy The Wildstone women s fiction series has a strong influence of romance which isn t always the case in the genre I like the fact that I can rely on the same things we get in her romances, while exploring the family dynamic and conflict with a little depth The Lemon Sisters is about two sisters, Brooke and Mindy who are estranged and facing a personal crisis These two women couldn t be different from one another if they tried Brooke was always the free spirited, adventure loving sister The one who wasn t satisfied with small town life, and left to experience the world through the lens of her camera She was high on life, adrenaline, and freedom to do what she pleased Mindy settled down in their hometown, married and started a family, and ran her parents business in town She s a people pleaser, organizing everyone and everything around her in the attempt to be perfect Now she s having a mental health crisis, stressed beyond belief and has nowhere to turn So she seeks out the sister she hasn t been in contact with for seven years in a desperate plea for help She d spent most of her life trying to be perfect, which had finally sucked the soul out of her and left her feeling like she was free falling into an abyss.From the outside, Brooke seems to have it all a successful career at a travel reality show, a nice home, and fantastic friends On the inside she struggles with OCD, anxiety, and crippling guilt over a tragic event in her past She s completely isolated herself from her family, and won t let the few people in her life know what she struggles with Everything is internalized, and always has been Which doesn t do much to solve anything, but she realizes that something finally has to give She misses her old life, before. Before the accident that led her down the lonely path she s on, and stole her passion for life Both sisters are burned out, and at their wits end They know they have to start making some serious changes So Brooke takes a brave step to mending their broken relationship and heads back to Wildstone It wasn t adventure that kept her away from Wildstone Shame, maybe Okay, definitely And regrets Lots of regrets She d been haunted by them for seven years, throughout which she d stayed away from her childhood town, only four hours north of here.Brooke has two goals in going back home To reconcile her relationship with her sister and to make peace with the man she ran from without getting closure Garrett grew up with her and the three of them were close friends, and eventually he became something Even back then, she kept her distance emotionally, but deep inside she knows they could have had something permanent if she had reached for it She has a lot of mistakes to make up for, and she doesn t feel as if she deserves forgiveness necessarily but she knows she can t continue the way things have been Brooke quickly realizes that stepping into Mindy s life isn t going to be quite as easy as she had planned The kids, the schedule, and a broody Garrett right next door have her nerves frayed in no time I enjoyed Brooke s perspective the most I was interested to find out what exactly happened after the helicopter crash, and why she felt the need to cut and run from everyone It was really heartbreaking when she finally opened up to Garrett and shared with him how she had been struggling for so many years At the same time, I felt worse for him because she had left him in the dark for so long and the woman he once loved was stirring up all kinds of emotions that he was scared to feel again He didn t trust that she would have the courage to stay and leave herself vulnerable Beyond their relationship issues, she s also working through her own fears an inability to do the things she once loved Later on, a conflict crops up with Garrett and his own family and he must do his own soul searching to decide if he s willing to forgive and fight for what he wants Mindy I couldn t really connect with as much I thought she was really judgemental and controlling which kind of got on my nerves a bit Yes, she was overwhelmed in her family life and trying to keep her head above water But she was quick to overreact and slow to listen to others She also seemed pretty ungrateful about what Brooke was doing for her I get that she was holding onto some resentment, but her jealousy and animosity made her a little difficult to sympathize with Overall, I thought this was solidly entertaining, holding my interest from beginning to end Shalvis included lots of humor through her usual menagerie of pets as well as some very high energy children While I didn t feel as emotionally invested in Brooke and Garrett s second chance romance as I should have been, I was still rooting for them to finally break through the pride and hurt that had been keeping them apart for so long If you re thinking of starting the series, don t hesitate I may not have loved this one as much as her others but there is always something substantial to take away from her stories It s important to note you do not have to read this series in order They are very loosely tied together with no overlap in plotlines FOLLOW SMOKIN HOT BOOK BLOG ON

    The Lemon Sisters is the third stand alone book in Jill Shalvis Wildstone series and yes I use the term series lightly because while they all take place in Wildstone for the most part we don t see the characters from the previous books I ve enjoyed this women s fiction with romantic elements series, the second book in particular was fantastic, however this book is my least favorite of the series The Lemon Sisters is about two sisters who are a bit estranged finding not only their way back in to each other s lives but for one a way to reclaim her marriage and the other to make amends for her past In Ms Shalvis signature style this book contained humor, emotion, romantic elements, and some family drama, it unfortunately also contained references to overused internet memes which has become a thing for this author and in my opinion not a good thing.Brooke has been living her live in Los Angeles while producing an extreme travel show and basically hiding from her family and her past Granted there s a reason for it and while she is basically hiding from her painful past when her perfect sister Mindy shows up on her doorstep with her three children needing a marital and mommy break leaving Brooke to pick up the pieces while spending a lot of time with her niece and two nephews something she s been avoiding I ll come right out and say that the three kids in this book kind of stole every scene they were in, there was no doubt they were kids and they did some crazy and outrageous things, but they were simply being kids which I loved seeing While Mindy takes a life time out in Brooke s L.A apartment, Brooke returns to her hometown of Wildstone with the kids in tow to confront the man from her past, her sister s clueless husband, and get to know her niece and nephews I quite loved Brooke s interactions with the kids and how she just kind of rolled with everything that happened while she was in charge and how she refused to answer Mindy s constant texts, emails, and phone calls or follow the schedule that Mindy had in place for their family Brooke was a bit of a mess from an accident 7 years prior and one of the things she wanted to do was be able to talk with Garrett the man she left behind, she just didn t realize that he now lived next door to her sister and was constantly around since he was remodeling their home While I appreciated that the attraction between them was still there and neither one was set to act on it, the push pull between them after awhile got on my nerves I get they had things to work through, but about three fourths the way through the book I was convinced they really didn t need to be together again because they kept taking one step forward then two back As a reader it frustrated me and I felt so much of the angst wasn t necessary Mindy and Linc s marriage is falling apart mainly because Mindy is overworked and Linc is clueless which also turned me off I hate when men are written as completely clueless about what their wife does and seemingly has no clue how to take care of his children especially when the oldest one is 8 It s as bad as people asking a dad if they are babysitting their children, the answer is no, he s parenting them Both couples had major communication problems and while I can excuse Brooke and Garrett s to some degree, the fact that Mindy never saw fit to sit her husband down and tell him she needed help from him or the fact he was so out of touch with his family made me again question if they should be together I was disappointed that I felt that way about both of these couples throughout most of this book.While there were moments in this book I thoroughly enjoyed and I was happy with the outcome once I waded through all the drama to get there, The Lemon Sisters was a bit of a disappointment for me and in my opinion, not one of this author s best efforts.
