This summer, romance blooms again in Wildstone!
After a difficult few years, Tilly Adams is ready for life to start going right. Though she has a case of first day nerves teaching art at the local community college, she knows it isn’t anything a few snuggles from her rescue puppy won’t cure. Until she sees Dylan Scott again, her one time bff and first love sitting in the front row.
Dylan knows he should’ve left well enough alone, but when he sees Tilly living her dream, he can’t help but make contact. Ten years ago, he left Wildstone and everything in it behind, including Tilly. He had his reasons, but now he wants her back in his life, anyway he can get her.
When Tilly agrees to design the logo for Dylan’s new helicopter touring company, it’s business only…until she finds herself falling into his arms once again. Can she possibly open her heart back up to the only man who’s ever broken it? But soon they’re both realizing the truth -- love always deserves a second chance.
I received a review copy of this book from the publisher.
Short but satisfying, The Good Luck Sister stars Tilly and Dylan from Lost and Found Sisters (review). This second-chance romance novella picks up about 10 years after the events of the previous book, but you don’t have to have read Lost and Found Sisters; flashbacks taken directly from LaFS will catch you up on everything you need to know. As is common in a romance novella, the relationship develops fairly quickly, but in this case, it’s clear the former high school sweethearts never got over each other, so the pace feels realistic.
I read The Good Luck Sister before I read Lost and Found Sisters, and really liked both the teenage Tilly and the adult Tilly and Dylan–it’s why I went back to the series beginning and read LaFS. Now that I’ve read both, part of me wishes Tilly and Dylan had gotten a full-length book, but I kind of see why they didn’t; it had to take place 10 years later, given their ages in The Good Luck Sister.
There’s plenty of Shalvis’s trademark humor, plus an ugly-cute puppy and enough glimpses of Quinn and Mitch’s life to satisfy those of us who like epilogues to our happily-ever-afters. In short, if you liked Lost and Found Sisters, grab a copy of The Good Luck Sister. You won’t be disappointed. (Except maybe by the length!)
