The Lemon Sisters is book three in the Wildstone series by Jill Shalvis. I have loved this series from the start but had no idea what to expect with this book and wow, was I surprised. This book can definitely be read as a stand alone.
Brooke Lemon left Wildstone, CA seven years ago for Los Angeles. She is a producer for a Travel Network show. When Brooke left Wildstone, she also left her life behind including one very important man whom she hasn’t seen or spoken with since. She ...more
“I’m great. I mean, I did just spent a full minute looking for my phone while using it as a flashlight, but everyone does that, right?
Brooke and Mindy- The Lemon Sisters of Wildstone- couldn’t be more different. Brooke is a free spirit who once had a challenging and exciting career, until a helicopter crash left her with PTSD.
She’s made a mess of things with her family and with Garrett, the guy she left behind, l ...more
I just wrote a review and deleted the whole bloody thing. I’m struggling to get my feeling down as to how much I LOVED The Lemon Sisters. To be honest, my family are not helping me in this endeavour. My son is chatting with his mate VERY LOUDLY. My hubby is in the kitchen baking his famous Banana, Butterscotch Pudding (which I appreciate) and listening to music VERY LOUDLY. Now, it’s raining and it’s VERY LOUD.
STUFF IT…I’M GOING TO HAVE A SHOWER!!!!

We return to the town of Wildstone and its residents for the third book in Jill Shalvis’s hugely enjoyable series of the same name. The Lemon Sisters gives us Brooke and Mindys’ stories although Brooke is in the forefront, Mindy’s story is very much intertwined with hers, especially as at the start she turns up unannounced on Brooke’s LA doorstep with her three hilarious and adorable kids in tow while obviously being on her last nerve in the middle ...more
Brooke Lemon left her hometown of Wildstone for LA and she distanced herself from her family and her first love. She was the adventure-seeking and free spirited sister despite her OCD tendencies. But then an event changed her life and she is still dealing with the repercussions. If she does not let anyone in, then she does not have to face the issues. So she h ...more
The Lemon Sisters by Jill Shalvis explores the idea of going back home to perhaps rebuild some of the bridges you burnt when you left. Brooke Lemon is stuck. She is paralysed by PTSD caused by a helicopter crash she was in a few years ago. Realising that she isn’t happy with her life the way it is she jumps at the opportunity to go back home to try and repair her life when her sister turns up on her doorstep ...more
The Lemon Sisters is a wonderfully written story about family, forgiveness, healing, and second chances. Mindy, Brooke, Linc, and ...more
The Lemon Sisters is a beautifully written story about family, friendship and second chances. It shows an honest take on family relationships, and how difficult it can be to say the hard truths. Sometimes, it's easier to stay away than to come back and deal with things. And sometimes, coming back gives all the rewards.
And although Brooke and Mindy had a bit of a contentious relationship, which let's be honest, pretty much all sisters do, theirs wasn't too far gone that it couldn't be repaired.
Full review to come.
Brooke Lemon finally returns to Wildstone years after she left. Not only is she there to help out her basically estranged sister Mindy, but she also wants to make amends with Garrett, her childhood friend and past lover. She hopes that by doing these things she will find herself along the way.
First of all, Mindy's children were AWESOME. Even though they were obviously a handful, they were so fu ...more

I also loved how there were two stories in this book, one for each sister and how they were woven into each other. I cried a few times to be honest because of the strong emotions and real story line and just being drawn into the characters that Jill writes so beautifully.
Brooke thought she didn't need her fa ...more

(view spoiler)[So, I'm a huge Jill Shalvis fan but I'm learning that I love her romances. This is not a romance, this is women's fiction. I knew that going in, and while I loved many parts of this story there were a few things that just made me angry. Full disclosure, both sisters have a HEA.
I adored Brooke a ...more
The Lemon Sisters is the third book in the Wildstone series by the talented Jill Shalvis. I'm a huge fan of Jill's and have read over fifty of her books and I have to say The Lemon Sisters is my favorite! I don't know what I love more about this book. The sisters who love each other, but fight. The kids who remind me so much of my own, the husband and best friend who are funny, sexy and flawed. There was just so much real in the book that I was laughing out loud and reading sections of i ...more

This is the fourth in the series - as there is a 1.5! They are all delicious, and as with any of Jill Shalvis's wonderful books, be prepared to put life on hold whilst you devour it! I have just spent the day hidden away claiming to be "Spring-cleaning", but really reading this latest installment cover to cover. What a treat! And I would say that whilst the stories are linked, you can definitely read them out of order. ...more
Unlike some romance writers who decide to venture into women's fiction with less than satisfactory results, Jill Shalvis has made the transition without alienating her readers while remaining true to her roots. Also, it doesn't hurt that Shalvis has always been writing about characters who have depth and real feelings. The Lemon Sisters is a welcome addition and a definite if you're looking for a good beach read.
