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 loveable mutt to caring for his rambunctious kids. 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… (Source: Goodreads)
I never imagined how much I’d love this couple. Grace and Josh, both kind of hovered on the periphery of their trios. I should have learned by now, not to doubt the great JILL SHALVIS.
I was hooked the moment Grace walked into Josh’s house. Satan’s puppy. Jedi Toddler. Hell-on-Wheels Sister. Oh ya, and a Doctor with Mocha Eyes and a heart that will make you melt.
I love how they slow build. Neither looking to add complications to their life and that is exactly how they see the other. All fun vs Man married to his job with a family. Grace, a girl with her own baggage and with a heart bigger than her chest is exactly what Josh’s world needs. Her way of really being there in the moment starts to expose what is missing from all their lives and give light to what could be. As the pieces fall into place, it is combustible. Sparks! It makes both Grace and Josh realize that smaller and messy filled with love is way better than the bigger, busier expectations of others, as well-meaning as they might be.
I couldn’t put it down. FOREVER AND A DAY gave me all the FEELS and is one of my favorite HEAs of all time. JILL, where will you take my heart next? Bring on the next 3.
