The lemon Sisters
Brooke Lemon had a major accident a couple of years ago. That was also the moment when she decided to leave her town Wildstone, her boyfriend, and her family behind. This accident had a major impact on her life. She is afraid to open up with guys, even though she wants to get a serious relationship in the future. And she changed her job. No more rock climbing and bungee jumping for her anymore.
Mindy Lemon doesn’t know what to do anymore. She thinks her husband is cheating on her. So she takes the kids to Brooke and asks her for her help. She needs to rest and more me-time to find herself again.
I really was in the mood for reading something romantic so I found this book by Jill Shalvis and I decided to read it. This is not just a romance novel because there is always a drama story behind each character in the books by Jill. This time it is about Brooke and her accident a few years ago. That was the moment that she decided to run away from everything. She left her family, her boyfriend, and her town behind.
The best part of this book was the ending. I cried so hard because that was the best gift Mindy could ever give to her little sister Brooke. That part was so beautiful and emotional.
The characters were okay. But unfortunately I had no connection with each of them. Which can happen of course. I still hoped everything would work out in the end but that was it.
It was a great book and the story was so beautiful, so I am pretty sad that I had no connection with the characters. I just couldn’t identify with them. But maybe someone else can. Everyone is different.
I think Jill Shalvis is a great author and I love her books. And I will continue reading her books too. Her books are perfect when you want to read something beautiful and romantic.
