"Fall in love with Jill Shalvis! She's my go-to read for humor and heart."— Susan Mallery, New York Times bestselling author

Beloved New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis begins a new series—Sunrise Cove—set near beautiful Lake Tahoe, with a heartwarming story of found family and love.

During the snowstorm of the century Levi Cutler is stranded on a ski lift with a beautiful stranger named Jane. After strong winds hurl the gondola in front of them into the ground, Levi calls his parents to prepare them for the worst...but can't bring himself to say goodbye. Instead, wanting to fulfill his mother's lifelong wish, he impulsively tells her he's happily settled and Jane is his girlfriend—right before his phone dies.

But Levi and Jane do not.

Now Levi's family is desperate to meet "The One." Though Jane agrees to be his pretend girlfriend for just one dinner, she's nervous. After a traumatic childhood, Jane isn't sure she knows how to be around a tight-knit family that cherishes one another. She's terrified, and a little jealous. But an unexpected series of events and a host of new friends soon show Jane that perhaps this is the life she was always meant to have.

As Jane and Levi spend more time together, pretend feelings quickly turn into real ones. Now all Jane has to do is admit to herself she can't live without the man she's fallen in love with and the family she has always dreamed of.

        November 8, 2021
        Bestseller Shalvis (Love for Beginners) launches the Sunrise Cove series with a charming, emotional romance featuring a cast readers will quickly come to see as old friends. Levi Cutler and Jane Park’s first meeting is as traumatic as they come: the two are trapped in a gondola high above the Lake Tahoe ski slopes during a blizzard. The gondola in front of them has already fallen, and theirs is barely hanging on. Sure that he’s about to die, Levi makes a last call to his mother to assure her he’s happy. He even lets her think he has a girlfriend when she overhears Jane in the background. It’s a lie that turns awkward when the pair inevitably survive, leading into a fake-relationship romance between two people recovering from their own separate traumas in addition to their shared near-death experience. Meanwhile, a secondary romance between Jane’s friends, doctors Charlotte and Mateo, gives readers double the drama. After the adrenaline rush of the opening, the story settles into a comforting tale of love both romantic and platonic. The result is escapism at its finest. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House.

        January 1, 2022
        A near-death experience leads Levi Cutler to tell his mother that he finally has a girlfriend, and her name is Jane. Jane Parks may be tempted by Levi's good looks, but she's only in Tahoe for the season, and then she plans to travel the world as a nurse. She agrees to pretend to be his girlfriend through his parents' fortieth anniversary dinner, though, and the more they get to know each other, the more real the relationship starts to feel. But after an itinerant childhood, Jane doesn't do connections, not with Levi, and not with her grandfather, who lives in town and whom she watches from afar. Meanwhile, her best friend and roommate, Charlotte, is nothing but annoyed by fellow doctor Mateo Moreno, who may be the only man who can see past her tough exterior. Shalvis imbues Levi with her signature easy charm, making him the perfect foil for walled-off Jane. Shalvis' characteristic banter and high jinks fill this sweet, romantic story about found family and letting love in.

      • content: From the outset, narrator Erin Mallon captures the tension when strangers Levi and Jane are trapped on a swinging gondola in the middle of a blizzard. When they think they are about to die, Levi calls his mother and tells her Jane is his girlfriend. Mallon aptly expresses Levi's exasperation with his overbearing family but still allows his love to shine through her narration. Jane had a troubling childhood, which has affected her adult relationships, and Mallon deftly portrays her emotional changes as she learns to overcome her past. Jane's best friend is from the South, and Mallon gives her a hint of a twang that is a lovely contrast to Jane's West Coast accent. Mallon smoothly moves between the male and female characters, creating an enjoyable listening experience. S.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine

        Data scientist Levi Cutler didn't mean to call the woman trapped with him (in a broken gondola perilously on the brink of falling off its line) his girlfriend, but why not make his mother happy if this is going to be his last phone call with her? Traveling nurse Jane is supposed to be working in Lake Tahoe until her contract is up--not falling out of the sky on her first gondola ride or reviving a wounded but handsome stranger while they wait to be rescued. Now that it appears both will make it out alive, Levi asks Jane to pretend to be his girlfriend, at least for a little while. Jane finds herself jealous of his tight-knit, nosy, and altogether wonderful family, but is also thinking she could finally see herself as part of one. Narrator Erin Mallon does a lovely job bringing the novel's heart, humor, and voices to life. VERDICT With an additional secondary romance and a large cast of friends and family, this is a fun series starter and a perfect listen for library patrons looking for some adventurous romance with a gorgeous wintry setting.--Elizabeth Gabriel
