Review: The Sweetest Thing by Jill Shalvis

Two Men Are One Too Many . . .

Tara has a thousand good reasons not to return to the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington. Yet with her life doing a major crash-and-burn, anywhere away from her unfulfilled dreams and sexy ex-husband will do. As Tara helps her two sisters get their newly renovated inn up and running, she finally has a chance to get things under control and come up with a new plan for her life.

But a certain tanned, green-eyed sailor has his own ideas, such as keeping Tara hot, bothered . . . and in his bed. And when her ex wants Tara back, three is a crowd she can't control-especially when her deepest secret reappears out of the blue. Now Tara must confront her past and discover what she really wants. If she's lucky, she might just find that everything her heart desires is right here in Lucky Harbor.

Of the three half-sisters featured in this trilogy, I found myself liking Tara the best, primarily thanks to The Sweetest Thing.   The Tara Daniels we met in Simply Irresistible was bossy, opinionated, perhaps a little miserable; she reminded me of another Shalvis heroine.  I wasn't sure I wanted to get to know her further.  This Tara is still those things, but we're given the reasons behind her behaviors.  Reason number one: Ford Walker, Tara's first love, who still calls Lucky Harbor home after all these years.  

Tara and Ford have an immediate chemistry seventeen years apart isn't able to diminish.  And I loved watching them fall in love again.  Add the joys of running a B&B, her sisters Chloe and Maddie, the complication of meeting her daughter, and the return of her ex-husband, and you've got the complete romantic package, 100%.
