Whatever genre Ms Shalvis writes, she does it well! I was really unsure about reading a chick-lit novel, even written by JS, but it was a whole success! She still has her prevailing themes, like in her romances she writes about close families and unlikely friendships.
The books revolves around Quinn who's life is rocked by a lawyer who tells her she was adopted. Quinn doesn't know how to take this, but decides to go to her birth other's home town and find out more about her inheritance and family. She's blindsided by the revelations taking place in a small town on the coast of California. While there she meets new people, some who knew her mom and dad. She also falls in love with a sometime local and the town and the person she is while there.
I loved seeing Quinn come to know herself and finding a new purpose and a new life. She's a strong person who achieves what most of us look for: finding yourself and being happy with that person and life. I recommend this book to anyone loving Jill's other works and people wanting to spend a few hours just feeling amazing.
