About the author:
USA Today bestselling author JILL SHALVIS lives in a small town in the Sierras also run by quirky characters. Any resemblance to the quirky characters in her books are, um, mostly coincidental. Look for Jill's bestselling, award-winning books wherever romances are sold and visit her website at for a complete book list and daily blog detailing her city-girl-living-in-the-mountain adventures.

drey's thoughts:
Three half-sisters--Tara, Maddie, and Chloe--meet up at a dilapidated old inn in Lucky Harbor to inspect their inheritance. One wants to fix it up. One wants to sell it. One is ambivalent. All three have secrets, and none of them really know how to talk to each other.

In Simply Irresistible, Jill Shalvis gives us a crash-course in sibling dynamics along with a warm-fuzzy romance, and does both admirably. Her characters are fun and irreverent. And I love how each chapter starts with a quote attributed to the girls' mother. For example:

Men are like parking spots. All the good ones are taken, and those that aren't are inaccessible.

Remember, it's always better to be the smartass rather than the dumbass.

The easy road is always under construction, so have an alternative route planned.

And, this being a romance novel, Jax (the hero) is delectably hunky and absolutely delish! I love the dialog between the characters, and I love how real Jill makes them. Pick this one up to curl up with this fall. Or better yet, win a copy!

drey's rating: 3.5/5 Very Good

Challenges: 100+, Pub
