Description

First Time in Print!

Following the USA Today bestselling author of Lost and Found Sisters comes Jill Shalvis' moving story of heart, loss, betrayal, and friendship.

Six months after Lanie Jacobs' husband's death, it's hard to imagine anything could deepen her sense of pain and loss. But then Lanie discovers she isn't the only one grieving his sudden passing. A serial adulterer, he left behind several other women who, like Lanie, each believe she was his legally wedded wife.

Rocked by the infidelity, Lanie is left to grapple with searing questions. How could she be so wrong about a man she thought she knew better than anyone? Will she ever be able to trust another person? Can she even trust herself?

Desperate to make a fresh start, Lanie impulsively takes a job at the family-run Capriotti Winery. At first, she feels like an outsider among the boisterous Capriottis. With no real family of her own, she's bewildered by how quickly they all take her under their wing and make her feel like she belongs. Especially Mark Capriotti, a gruffly handsome Air Force veteran turned deputy sheriff who manages to wind his way into Lanie's cold, broken heart—along with the rest of the clan.

Everything is finally going well for her, but the arrival of River Brown changes all that. The fresh-faced twenty-one-year old seems as sweet as they come...until her dark secrets come to light—secrets that could destroy the new life Lanie's only just begun to build.

        Starred review from April 2, 2018
        Shalvis entices with sensuous romance and a touch of humor as one woman’s journey of healing takes her to a California winery. Lanie Jacobs is devastated first by the death of her husband, Kyle, and then by the discovery that he was married to other women while married to her. Looking for a change, she takes a job as a graphic artist at the Capriotti Winery. Lanie is surprised and reluctantly charmed by the boisterous and welcoming Capriotti family members, who are led by matriarch Cora. Though Lanie is wary of men, she cannot help her attraction to Cora’s son, Mark, a single deputy sheriff with two adorable twin daughters. As Lanie and Mark are irresistibly drawn to each other, their romantic interludes sizzle with passion, though the wounds from their pasts leave them reluctant to seek a lasting relationship. Lanie adjusts to life with the members of the Capriotti family as she befriends new employee River Green, a pregnant young woman with secrets of her own. Lanie struggles to decide whether she can remove the barriers around her heart for a chance at true happiness. With a fast pace and a lovely mix of romance and self-discovery, Shalvis’s novel is chock-full of magnetic characters and seamless storytelling, rich with emotions, and impossible to put down.
