From the Publisher:
Maddie Moore's whole life needs a makeover.
In one fell swoop, Maddie loses her boyfriend (her decision) and her job (so not her decision). But rather than drowning her sorrows in bags of potato chips, Maddie leaves L.A. to claim the inheritance left by her free-spirited mother-a ramshackle inn nestled in the little coastal town of Lucky Harbor, Washington.
Starting over won't be easy. Yet Maddie sees the potential for a new home and a new career-if only she can convince her two half-sisters to join her in the adventure. But convincing Tara and Chloe will be difficult because the inn needs a big makeover too.
The contractor Maddie hires is a tall, dark-haired hottie whose eyes-and mouth-are making it hard for her to remember that she's sworn off men. Even harder will be Maddie's struggles to overcome the past, though she's about to discover that there's no better place to call home than Lucky Harbor.
Jill Shalvis has written more than 50 novels of contemporary romance and romantic suspense. Her work often appears on bestseller lists, and she is frequently nominated for the prestigious RITA award from the Romance Writers of America. (In 2011 she took home the prize for her novel SIMPLY IRRESISTABLE, in the category of contemporary single title romance.) Shalvis studied for a degree in journalism before deciding that she preferred "making things up," as she has told interviewers. Her first book, SUMMER OF FIRE, was published in 1996, under the pen name Jill Sheldon, which she used on a handful of her early releases. Since she began writing professionally, she has been known for her humor and her often-clueless--but appealing--heroes. "I love torturing my heroes with love," she has said. "Not sure what that says about me, but there's something about a watching a big bad alpha male suffer before getting his happily ever after." In recent years, her Lucky Harbor series--which revolves around the romantic adventures of a group of sisters trying to revive a dilapidated beach resort--has become among her most popular work. Shalvis maintains an active presence on various social-media sites, where she confesses her addiction to cookies, admits to a propensity for baggy sweatpants, and writes of living near Lake Tahoe with her husband and three children.
