Rainy Day Friends: Wildstone Book 2 by [Shalvis, Jill]

Genre: Romance

This was a fun read, I’ve read a few of Jill’s novels now and they’re consistently quality reads.
Its not a deep dark drama, nothing over exciting either but some very real characters with some very real issues. Poor Lanie, thinking she’s the love of her late husbands life, that’s what he’s always told her, to find out some months after his death he had four other wives….what a nightmare. Its hard to imagine that but it does happen and I so felt for her. When she takes the winery job she’s very reserved, closed, keeps herself insulated from the world trying to avoid more hurt. They’re a family who are full on though, who open arms and hearts and just absorb people and Lanie finds they spring slowly under her defences. Someone else comes along too that’s struggling and Lanie slowly befriends her only to find an appalling shock. I felt for River, but understood Lanie’s anger and sense of betrayal too. They were both cheated in life and deserved better but they have to move forward and sadly all the hurt that comes with it.
I loved all the characters here, a real mixed bunch, and each had their own problems. I adored the twins, precocious but so cute! Its an easy read, a perfect summer beach read ( if we ever get some sunshine here in UK!) and one that makes the reader feel satisfied at the end.

Stars: Four, a fun and light read, with some very real people.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
