Following the USA Today bestseller, Lost and Found Sisters, comes Rainy Day Friends, Jill Shalvis’ moving story of heart, loss, betrayal, and friendship.
Six months after Lanie Jacobs’ husband’s death, it’s hard to imagine anything could deepen her sense of pain and loss. But then Lanie discovers she isn’t the only one grieving his sudden passing. A serial adulterer, he left behind several other women who, like Lanie, each believe she was his legally wedded wife.
Rocked by the infidelity, Lanie is left to grapple with searing questions. How could she be so wrong about a man she thought she knew better than anyone? Will she ever be able to trust another person? Can she even trust herself?
Desperate to make a fresh start, Lanie impulsively takes a job at the family-run Capriotti Winery. At first, she feels like an outsider among the boisterous Capriottis. With no real family of her own, she’s bewildered by how quickly they all take her under their wing and make her feel like she belongs. Especially Mark Capriotti, a gruffly handsome Air Force veteran turned deputy sheriff who manages to wind his way into Lanie’s cold, broken heart—along with the rest of the clan.
Everything is finally going well for her, but the arrival of River Green changes all that. The fresh-faced twenty-one-year old seems as sweet as they come…until her dark secrets come to light—secrets that could destroy the new life Lanie’s only just begun to build.
Great characters, excellent story lines. I fell in love with the Capriottis. Can’t wait to read more about them.
Rainy Day Friends.....Loved it before the first Chapter was completely read!
I never post spoilers in my reviews.
While reading this book, I so wanted to know how Everything was going to play out and what the outcomes were going to be, yet wishing the book never to end.
In my eyes, that is one of the things which makes a book great.
Way to go Jill Shalvis, You have a BIG WINNER here! Congrats!
Mark and Laney find love when they were both avoiding it
Another enchanting visit to Wildstone! This stand alone book shares the town as a backdrop and a few geographical features with the other books in the series, but that’s all. I really enjoyed that aspect of this story. While Mark and Laney have so much going on in their lives, a relationship is not something either of them is interested in having. Of course their chemistry is off the charts, but both have reinforced walls around their hearts. Laney’s road to self discovery runs through facing her relationship with her own mother and dealing with being widowed from a bigamist husband. I love the big wine making family. One of my favorite aspects of the story is the family/employee lunches. I always enjoy Jill Shalvis’ books, and this one is no exception. Thanks for a reminder about the importance of family, by blood or just love!
