    Like in the previous book in the Wildstone series, this one is about not one woman but two women who'll meet under shocking circumstances but will eventually find the silver lining of all this. Lanie, a thirty-year-old woman who lost her husband just six months ago, only to learn after his death that she wasn't his only wife...

    I ADORE THESE BOOKS! I really did mentally shout that. Seriously, I woke my husband up last night by laughing out loud. I wanted to send quotes to a friend, but it was a little late to text, I had tears in my eyes and had to rein in the silent laughter because I worried I would wake up the family and there were highly emotional parts on all the feelings! Read the books!

    I really should say - I was super lucky to read an early digital arc, and stayed up late to finish reading, because I HAD to. L

    Rainy Day Friends was a good read. Great family, awesome characters, a tug at your heart storyline. A good time, indeed.

    READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOG





    I swear, everytime I'm done with a Jill Shalvis book I cry. Not because it's sad. Not even because my emotions are all over the place. No, the fact that I'm done always gets to me. Every single time. If I had my way, I would live in a Jill Shalvis book so that it would never end, that's how beautiful her stories are. Ever since discovering this author I've had a huge fan-girlish crush on her. In Rainy Days Friends we are back in Wildstone.

    The Capriottis are a loud bunch

    And now he had her in his arms, this amazing, prickly, suspicious, hardheaded woman that he was falling for in spite of himself because she was also sweet and kind and had the biggest heart of anyone he’d ever met. Falling hard. It was going to take a lot to convince her that he was a good idea, although he was pretty sure her body might’ve already made its decision. He had no idea what it would take to persuade the rest of her.


    Mark! Oh my. He is a single dad who adores his kids. I loved how he was with them - even when they needed a firm hand he gave it with a kindness that was so natural to him. He is such a charmer, sweet, understanding and so level-headed. Mark and his girls stole my heart from the first moment and didn't let go until the very end. I was so enchanted by this trio. He didn't intend to fall in love after being burned by his ex but he recognized a good thing when he saw it.

    "I’ve learned that life is a crapshoot, and at any moment someone can walk into it and change it forever.” - Mark


    Mark was just wonderful with Lanie but it was the joint effort of the whole family that actually helped bring down her walls. Learning acceptance from a family who didn't have a reason to welcome her into their fold other than liking her and feeling her need for love made her feel her mother's distance even more. Cora, the matriarch, united smartness and kindness, her wisdom and a keen understanding of people.

    Courage doesn’t always roar, you know. Sometimes it’s just a quiet voice at the end of the day, saying, “You can try again tomorrow.”


    And don't get me started on the two heathens - they were just adorable with their antics. So, so sweet. The family's witty banter had me in stitches. I also loved River, who totally upsets Lanie's life again, and Holden. Their love story was woven into the story so effortlessly - I wish we'd have had more of them.

    Jill Shalvis writes toe-curling romance and although it's not as explicit as I'm used to it still packs a lot of sexy chemistry and steam. I love her stories, from the small-town setting to the good people with the huge hearts, to the humor, to the romance that grabs your heart and squeezes tightly. Although this is labeled as women's fiction I'd actually call it contemporary romance. Now I'll start waiting for the next Jill Shalvis book. They are like a breeze of fresh air and I just can't get enough.

    “Started to go to the gym,” she said. “You know, to work off some of the baby fat. Only I couldn’t find my membership card and a new one was ten bucks. And since a doughnut and coffee was only three bucks, guess who saved seven bucks this morning?” - Alyssa

    Seriously Rainy Day Friends was like book crack to me. Once I started reading this story, I didn't want to put the book down. This book made me laugh out loud in public while reading, gave me happy signs and even a few tears.

    Lanie Jacobs needs a break from her life in after discovering her husband not only married her, but several other women. I loved how Lanie was a bit of a fish out of water around the Capriotti clan in the beginning. As she never had a close knit family, suddenly being drawn
