Christmas in Lucky Harbor is actually the first two books in the Lucky Harbor series; Simply Irresistible and The Sweetest Thing, and if you've ever thought about visiting Lucky Harbor, now's the time when you can get two great stories for the price of one! And honestly, I loved them so much that I read both stories in less than two days, and yet I'm finding it nearly impossible to review them now because there is just so much to tell, so many funny quotes, so many sigh-worthy moments... I just
Simply Irresistible (Lucky Harbor 1) 4 stars

The Sweetest Thing (Lucky Harbor 2) 5 stars

Kissing Santa Claus (Lucky Harbor 2.5) 3 stars

Under The Mistletoe (Lucky Harbor 6.5) still to read
31/12 - I've already read both full length novels in this book, Simply Irresistible and The Sweetest Thing, so I'm not reviewing either of those, but my overall rating does reflect my love for them - they really are fantastic stories - plus what I think of the two new novellas. To be continued...

The first novella was Logan's story (Tara's ex-husband) and he was paired with Sandy, a week-long fling he can't stop thinking about. I had some LOL moments at the beginning of the story, picturing Sandy

This was my first swaree into Jill Shalvis, and I can honestly say that I will be taking a look at her back list. She is an author that has been on my TBR list for a long time, but never seemed to get around to her books, Something else would grab me, and then something else, and so on, so when I saw this available on NetGalley, I immediately snapped it up!

Simply Irresistible, is Maddie and Jax's story. and I am giving it Three Stars.

Why Three and not Four? Simple. I personally have issues with
Well dang! I just realized I bought this book last Christmas thinking I was getting two Christmas novellas involving the characters from Simply Irresistible and The Sweetest Thing. What I just found out is this book includes both full length books of Simply Irresistible and The Sweetest Thing combined together for one great price. My problem? I already bought both books at the same time I bought this one, and now I have two copies of each book. I guess that's what I get for not paying attention ...more
This anthology contains the first 2 books in the Lucky Harbor series. I have reviewed each book separately below but this is a series I'd highly recommend.

5 stars for Simply Irresistible

I've really been on a contemporary romance kick recently so when I saw all my friends on Goodreads start raving about the 3 latest books in the Lucky Harbor series I decided I'd have to give it a try. I just want to say a massive thanks to everyone who has mentioned these books because I absolutely loved Simply I

Read this review on my blog! --> Christmas in Lucky Harbor by Jill Shalvis

I was really in the mood for a holiday read, so when I stumbled upon the Christmas in Lucky Harbor cover, I was instantly sold. This is actually two books in one, which was even better!

Right off the bat, Jill Shalvis had me cracking up in Simply Irresistible. Maddie is one very funny lady. Could any one person run into any more embarrassing bad luck in a new town?! Luckily, our boy Jax found her endearing. Maddie and J

I received this anthology of the first two books in the series from netgalley, and they made a wonderfully entertaining, sweet Christmas read (even though one of them actually is set in the summer).

I'm not going to go over all the other points in some of the reviews below or give a plot synopsis, but I'll just emphasize a few points, and why I couldn't give it 5 stars.

I really love the way this author writes contemporary romance. It's incredibly witty, with a realistic bite in every paragraph, b
