DATE PUBLISHED - 2019
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.

As I was looking through my posts today, I see that I have failed my readers. Many of you were aware that my other daughter was pregnant and going to deliver in July, I am sure those of you that knew are wondering why I never posted about that and I must say that life has just gotten in the way, and I thought that I had written a post. Since I know I did not, I will now! He came when Mamaw was out of town! Can you believe that? He actually had the nerve to do something so ridiculous as to come while I was at the Pink Zebra reunion (our annual conference). I was with four of my best friends when we got the announcement that he was here! I was so happy that I was able to share that news with them before anyone else. Of course, the leaders of the company were there and anxious to hear how she was doing as well. Deliver went fairly smooth, but she was in labor for quite a while. I am not sure on hours, but I think about 6 hours. There were some issues with my daughter following delivery
Good snowy, cold Monday morning! The past week has been a challenge to so many across the United States struggling with this massive winter storm that brought artic temperatures with it. I know many have struggled to keep warm and deal with frozen pipes. Even in areas that are accustomed to snow and cold, this brutal bout of cold has been difficult. :::::The Weather:::: We have already discussed the weather, but our next few days are looking better. Tomorrow we should be above freezing for the first time since Thursday and in the mid 50's by the weekend. The weather man is saying that the warmer air is coming, but so is the rain.
Yesterday and today have been very cool days here on the farm and I must say that something that we don't recognize has been falling from the sky. It is wet and seems to be hanging around. IT is certainly what the ground needed as it seems to have soaked it up almost immediately. Rain, glorious rain!! The ducks are loving their pool and the rain, but I truly don't think that they are liking the cooler temperatures so much. I know I am not. I don't mind cool, but wearing my sweatshirt in June is not fun. The white turkeys are enjoying the coop that my husband put together for them. We have 5 of them and two others. We won't be keeping all of the toms as we have too many. Nesting boxes made of milk crates that we had lying around work well attached to the back wall. Here is Tom. He is such a great boy, but he likes to show off. He gets along well with the chickens. These are my Old English chickens. I like them as they are small and will never get much bigger. I actu
