*I received a free copy of [title] from [publisher] via Edelweiss. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review, which is honest and unbiased *Rainy Day Friends was a very emotional read. I cried so hard! But I also laughed and swooned very hard!
Lanie had really been through hell and back before Rainy Day Friends even started. She felt like nothing in her life was right anymore, which is one of the reasons why she took ...more
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 ...more
Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.
Rainy Day Friends was a good read. Great family, awesome characters, a tug at your heart storyline. A good time, indeed.
The Gist: Lanie's a new widow and just found out that her dear husband...had been collecting other wives the whole time they were married. Yeah. Her method of dealing? Running away and accepting a graphic design job at a winery while she sorts shit out. The huge nosy meddling family and the hunky cop wi ...more

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 ...more
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 ...more
