Rainy Day Friends (Wildstone #2) Reviews
So first the good news: this was a very fast, engaging read. I sped through it faster than I wanted to! And, like almost every Shalvis book, it had some lines funny and/or insightful enough to earn the attention of my Kinde's highlighter :) (Although some of the characters' nuggets of wisdom were definitely quotes I've seen elsewhere and not original writing by Shalvis. For example, at one point Cora, the rather improbably wise matriarch of the Capriotti clan, informs our heroine that " ...more
I want to be a member of the Capriotti family, either by blood or by choice! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was funny, witty, and emotional. And, don’t get me started with Mark, very hot, alpha, and considerate to Lainie and his daughters. I’ve been a fan of Jill Shalvis’ for years and have probably read everything that she’s written and feel that “Rainy Day Friends” is in the top five of her books (actually it’s number 1). This is one book that you don’t want to end but you can’t put it dow ...more
5 - "...Still wow!" Stars!
We return to Wildstone for the second book in Jill Shalvis’ series of the same name. And I can hands-down say that Rainy Day Friends is one of the best books I have read by this author.
From the introduction to the whole of the Capriotti family and their winery business in general, to Lanie Jacobs and Mark Capriotti, and their relationship specifically. There aren’t many authors that can tell a story with such heavy themes with so lightness of hand.
She was away from th ...more
What a wonderful, entertaining and heartwarming read Rainy Day Friends by Jill Shalvis turned out to be.
From the first few pages I was hooked, the storyline was beautifully written, it was well paced and all the characters added to my overall enjoyment.
Lanie and Mark are likable, endearing characters that touched my heart with their story and I truly fell in love with them.
Watching them come together had me smiling, laughing, swooning and even made me shed a tear or two. These two had be ...more
Rainy Day Friends is book two in the Wildstone series by Jill Shalvis. I have often proclaimed my love of all things Jill Shalvis. But just when I think I couldn’t love her any more, she writes a book like this one, and more love spills out. I don’t know how she does it but I love her more with every book!
Lanie Jacobs is broken. She lost her husband of five years, six months ago. But while grieving for the man she thought loved her, she found out that a lot of other women thought the same thing. ...more
I ADORE THESE BOOKS! I really did mentally shout that. Seriously, I woke my husband up last night by laughing out loud. I wanted to send quotes to a friend, but it was a little late to text, I had tears in my eyes and had to rein in the silent laughter because I worried I would wake up the family and there were highly emotional parts on all the feelings! Read the books!
I really should say - I was super lucky to read an early digital arc, and stayed up late to finish reading, because I HAD to. L ...more
