Review: Lost and Found Sisters (Wildstone #1) by Jill Shalvis

*****4.5 STARS*****

Being a longtime fan of Jill Shalvis, I'm always excited for her new releases and with Lost and Found Sisters we get the beginning of a new series and her first foray into women's fiction.
Quinn is a chef who is going through the motions of life. It may look like she has it all - a good job, wonderful boyfriend who wants to put a ring on her finger and a loving family. Beneath the surface she is dealing with tremendous grief from the loss of her sister two years earlier. When a lawyer shows up one day with news that will change her life. She leaves everything behind and moves to Wildstone California.

When she arrives in Wildstone, the news that greats her leaves her reeling. How can she deal with learning everything she thought she knew is a lie.

Mick grew up in Wildstone and could not see the small town in his rear view fast enough. He now lives in San Francisco, but has returned home for dad's funeral. When he sees Quinn in the midst of a panic attack on the beach he can't help stepping in. They begin a friendship which turns into more. Both have lives in other places, so surely it will amount to nothing more than a passing fling. Life and love though often has plans of its own.

This book was full of heart and emotion. It has a different feel to it than Shalvis' previous works, but is no less enjoyable. I cannot wait to see where future books in this new series will take us.

From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes her first women's fiction novel—an unforgettable story of friendship, love, family, and sisterhood—perfect for fans of Colleen Hoover, Susan Mallery, and Kristan Higgins.

They say life can change in an instant…

After losing her sister in a devastating car accident, chef Quinn Weller is finally getting her life back on track. She appears to have it all: a loving family, a dream job in one of L.A.'s hottest eateries, and a gorgeous boyfriend dying to slip an engagement ring on her finger. So why does she feel so empty, like she's looking for a missing piece she can't find?

The answer comes when a lawyer tracks down Quinn and reveals a bombshell secret and a mysterious inheritance that only she can claim. This shocking revelation washes over Quinn like a tidal wave. Her whole life has been a lie.

On impulse, Quinn gives up her job, home, and boyfriend. She heads up the coast to the small hometown of Wildstone, California, which is just a few hours north, but feels worlds apart from Los Angeles. Though she doesn't quite fit in right away, she can't help but be drawn to the town’s simple pleasures…and the handsome, dark-haired stranger who offers friendship with no questions asked.

As Quinn settles into Wildstone, she discovers there's another surprise in store for her. The inheritance isn't a house or money, but rather something earthshattering, something that will make her question everything she thought she knew about herself, about her family. Now with a world of possibilities opening up to Quinn, she must decide if this new life is the one she was always meant to have—and the one that could finally give her the fulfillment she's searched so long for.
