The Sweetest Thing

Two Men Are One Too Many . . .

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.

The Sweetest Thing is the second book of the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. I read the first book, Simply Irresistible recently and I've been waiting oh so patiently to get my turn with this book through my local library.

People, I inhaled this book in one sitting! One sitting! I was so caught up with what was happening to Tara and Logan, that I forgot everything around me. It was the perfect read for an afternoon.

Although I found Tara to be harsh at times there was a deep affection about her. And you could see that when she is concerned with her younger sister's health, you can see it when she cooks, and when she finally meets her daughter. It was beautiful to experience. And Logan, he's the type of guy that always seems relaxed and ready to hop off to the next adventure, but it wasn't always care free he felt deeply about what had happened between them when they were teens.

The only concern I have is that I now have to wait until December for the next book.
