Review: Simply Irresistible by Jill Shalvis

Goodreads:  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.

Kritters Thoughts:  The first in a series that takes place in Lucky Harbor in Washington State.  Three half sisters move into town to renovate a resort that their mother left them, but the property is definitely in need of some of TLC.  A small town and three half sisters who are known to create their own drama is a recipe for a great book.

The middle sister, Maddie is the main focus of this story.  She is leaving her hometown of LA for the small town in Washington for many reasons, one of them being an ex boyfriend who didn't quite show his anger in the best of ways.  This caused my one concern with the book.  Within moments of being in town, Maddie has met a guy and is making out with him.  If I had just left a really bad relationship, I would not be so quick to jump into any physical contact with a guy.  

This point aside, I loved the book.  The sisters were fantastic and I am definitely excited that there are more books in this series.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
