THE FAMILY YOU MAKE kicks off a brand new series for Jill Shalvis. The Sunrise Cove series is a mix of women’s fiction and contemporary romance but the essence of Jill Shalvis is still clearly there.
Rife with humor and heart, this book will easily sweep you off your feet. I enjoyed the banter between Levi and Jane from the get-go. They had amazing chemistry and this book definitely reminded me of why I love Shalvis’ books.
The characters have endured a lot so there’s a lot of emotional development that needs to happen for them to feel peace. I think Shalvis did a good job of exploring those past hurts and bringing a happily-ever-after to Jane and Levi.
Based on this first book, this new series sounds very promising and I am definitely looking forward to the other stories that will come.
Beloved New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis begins a new series—Sunrise Cove—set near beautiful Lake Tahoe, with a heartwarming story of found family and love.
During the snowstorm of the century Levi Cutler is stranded on a ski lift with a beautiful stranger named Jane. After strong winds hurl the gondola in front of them into the ground, Levi calls his parents to prepare them for the worst…but can’t bring himself to say goodbye. Instead, wanting to fulfill his mother’s lifelong wish, he impulsively tells her he’s happily settled and Jane is his girlfriend—right before his phone dies.
But Levi and Jane do not.
Now Levi’s family is desperate to meet “The One.” Though Jane agrees to be his pretend girlfriend for just one dinner, she’s nervous. After a traumatic childhood, Jane isn’t sure she knows how to be around a tight-knit family that cherishes one another. She’s terrified, and a little jealous. But an unexpected series of events and a host of new friends soon show Jane that perhaps this is the life she was always meant to have.
As Jane and Levi spend more time together, pretend feelings quickly turn into real ones. Now all Jane has to do is admit to herself she can’t live without the man she’s fallen in love with and the family she has always dreamed of.
