"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."--P. [4] of cover.

This is a reprint of a book originally released in April 2011. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, but I wish publishers would make it clearer when they do it. Anyway, if you like the Lucky Harbor series, no need to wait -- you can binge read the whole thing now.

29/5 - This was so full of clichéd situations and over-used romance novel tropes. One particular scene was so ridiculous, I actually don't think I've read a stupider, more contrived reason to bring about a situation ripe for sex to happen. So, here's a summary of this scene of ridiculousness: Tara is awoken from sleep at midnight by her sister's chainsaw-like snoring. She tries to go back to sleep, but decides she's hungry and is desperately craving chips. Unfortunately for her, her sister is a chip-maniac and to save her from chip related morbid obesity all chips have been banned from the house. What is Tara going to do? She needs chips! *Inspiration* What about the 'next door neighbour'? Ford ('next door neighbour') is sure to have chips, possibly because he's a guy. What harm would there be in going over there in the middle of the night to steal a packet of chips? None, none at all. So, Tara gets out of bed, puts on the first shoes she comes across, which just happens to be a pair of high-heeled wedges. There's sure to be no one up and about at 12 am, so there's obviously no need to put pants on. Tara dashes across the 'road' between her house and Ford's boat in her cute wedges, t-shirt and undies and sneaks aboard the boat. Thank goodness there are indeed CHIPS! Tara is mid chip-mouthful when Ford makes his presence known. Sexy times ensue, of course.

But you know what, despite all that, I really enjoyed the book. I really liked the dynamics between Ford and Mia, not so much Tara and her sisters. Tara and Maddie seemed distant with each other, and Tara and Chloe seemed to have the kind of relationship that will never be peaceful. These difficulties are probably realistic - I just didn't really enjoy their interactions with each other.

A wonderful romance of reunited lovers . hot sex, delightful humor, and plenty of heartwarming emotion. one of my favorite in the series.

This was a wonderful romance! Tara really has some substance and it was fun watching her let down her barriers and rediscover love with Ford.

I really loved this book (even ore than the first one). Jill Shalvis writes witty, quick reads that are fun the whole way through. A great beach read!

Great series. This is the second in the series about three sisters running an inn in Lucky Harbor. Can't wait for the third one to come out.
