LOVE CAN HAPPEN IN A HEARTBEAT
Grace never thought she’d be starting her life over from scratch. Losing everything has landed her in Lucky Harbor, working as a dog walker for overwhelmed ER doctor Josh Scott. But the day his nanny fails to show up, Grace goes from caring for Josh’s lovable mutt to caring for his rambunctious son. Soon Grace is playing house with the sexy single dad . . .
With so many people depending on him, Josh has no time for anything outside of his clinic and family-until Grace arrives in town. Now this brainy blonde is turning his life inside out and giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “good bedside manner.” Josh and Grace don’t know if what they have can last. But in a town like Lucky Harbor, a lifetime of love starts with just one day . . .
It’s been a long week and I’ve been in kind of a book rut so I decided to go back to an old favorite of mine, Forever and a Day. Jill Shalvis’ Lucky Harbor series is one of my favorites and the story of Grace and Josh stands out in the bunch.
So obviously I LOVE this story but I wanted to review it for you because it’s older and always worth a read.
What I love about this story is Grace. She’s kind of stuck in her life right now. After leaving a really great job she finds herself in Lucky Harbor where, let’s be honest, she’s hiding from the world. Specifically she’s hiding from her overachieving adoptive parents whom she feels she’ll never live up to. Instead of going back to some high powered investment banking job she does what she has to in order to survive.
Dog walking, modeling, flower deliveries and even nannying! How many of us could say we would do that?
Despite grumpy Dr. Josh, Grace is hard to resist. She might seem a little flighty but the truth is that Grace always tries hard and gets the job done. Even when it comes to a demon dog and his rambunctious little owner.
And Josh is just swoon worthy the way he takes care of everyone but like with most take charge guys he needs a helping hand…but he’ll never ask for it. Luckily for him Grace doesn’t need him to ask because she just steps in and gets it done. That’s how I knew I’d love their story and each time I read it I think the same thing.
The one thing that I didn’t absolutely love was Josh’s sister Anna. I totally get that she’s allowed a little snark in her life but dammit she’s an adult and all she does is contribute to the chaos in the house and in Josh’s life. We all have hardships and hers were harder than most but that wasn’t Josh’s fault and she put it all on him. I love how Grace didn’t use kid gloves with her, just told her straight up, “You’re an adult so act like one.”
This book, along with most in the series, is Lucky Harbor. Grace has her good friends to support and encourage her as she explores her feelings for Josh, the direction of her life and pleasing her parents.
Bottom line: one of my favorite stories to read time and again.
