Book Review- "The Lemon Sisters" - Fall Reading Challenge #2

Welcome to the second book review that I will be doing as part of the Fall Reading Challenge created by Colletta's Kitchen Sink. I am super excited to be participating in this challenge and you can read my original post here about this challenge.

TITLE:  "The Lemon Sisters"


PAGES - 368, I believe as I forgot to write it down before I returned the book to the library


PUBLISHER - William Morrow

      Brooke Lemon has always led the life she wanted, wild adventures- and mistakes- included, something her perfect sister, Mindy, never understood. So when Mindy shows up on Brooke's doorstep in the throes of a breakdown with her three little kids n tow, Brooke's shocked. 
   Wanting to make amends, Brooke agrees to trade places, taking the kids back to Wildstone for a few days so Mindy can pick up the pieces and put herself back together. What Brooke doesn't admit is she's just as broken... Also, how does one go home after seven years away? It doesn't take long for Brooke to come face-to-face with her past, in the form of one tall, dark, sexy mistake. Bur Garrett's no longer interested. Only his words don't match his actions, leaving Brooke feeling things she'd shoved deep. 
   Soon the sisters begin to wonder: Are they lemons in life? In love? All they know is that neither seems to be able to run far enough to outpace her demons. And when secrets surface, they'll have to learn that sometimes the one person who can help you the most is the one you never thought to ask.

   I haven't ever read anything by Jill Shalvis before, but I will certainly be reading more as she now has a new fan! This book was one that I did not want to put down. Her writing kept me captivated from the start and I could hardly wait to find the time to sit and read. The story was interesting and intriguing as well as funny. 
 Brooke Lemon became like a part of my family as I was waiting for her to realize just how wrong her past actions had been. This is listed as a romance book and there are many romantic undertones throughout the book, which was the first reason, I was not sure I would like it, but I was so wrong. The romance was just a part of the story and I am thankful that I chose this book. It felt like the perfect end of summer book. 
 There is some language in the book and many sexual parts to the story as well, but overall, I highly recommend this book.
