At Last

Jill Shalvis is one of my favorite authors.  I started reading her years and years ago - though to be honest, it was while I was a child and Jill was an author wunderkind so we're not as old as it sounds.  I will admit that I kind of drifted about 5 years ago.  I continued to buy the books, but somehow I didn't keep up with reading them.  Then again, about 5 years ago, I had a baby so I guess I can see that happening.  Anyway, one summer, I read 5 of the books on my shelf in a month and I was back.  It was like seeing an old friend you haven't seen in awhile and it feels like no time has passed at all.  The books make me happy.  Her heroes just get better and better.  

Her last book, At Last is in the Lucky Harbor series.  I will admit that it is very hard to follow up her last book, Lucky in Love, but I loved Matt and Amy all the same.  Of course, this book also left me wanting more, and I'm pleased I don't have to wait too long for Forever and a Day which comes out at the end of the month.  I always recommend Jill Shalvis's books.  These books are in groupings of 3 so you don't have to start from the beginning of the series, but I do suggest starting at Lucky in Love.  

I also got to meet Jill Shalvis in NYC last year.  I tried to meet her in DC, but she didn't make it in time to overlap when I was there.  I only have nice things to say.  The only negative is that her site is banned from my work computer for being porn which is only hilarious because I would say her books are PG-13, not even the most steamy of books that I've ever read.
