This is the third book in the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis. Like the first two it was really cute but the ending felt rushed. Shalvis has already established, at this point, there will be a series of books about the people in Lucky Harbor. Why then does she feel the need to finish Chloe and Sawyer’s story at the epilogue? Why not have it included into the next installment like she did with Maddie and Jax? That would have helped build continuity and validated the true nature of the characters in this novel. Two people who have the free spirit nature do not seem like they would be the ones to just jump into something so quickly. It just seemed rushed to me at the end and I don’t think it needed to be.
I am taking break from this series, not because of what I was just ranting about, because I want to read something else. I will come back to this series after I read a couple of other books which have found themselves on the To Be Read list.
Breaking rules and breaking hearts
Free-spirited Chloe lives life on the edge. Unlike her soon-to-be married sisters, she isn’t ready to settle into a quiet life running their family’s newly renovated inn. But soon her love of trouble–and trouble with love-draws the attention of the very stern, very sexy sheriff who’d like nothing better than to tame her wild ways.
Suddenly Chloe can’t take a misstep without the sheriff hot on her heels. His rugged swagger and his enigmatic smile are enough to make a girl beg to be handcuffed. For the first time, instead of avoiding the law, Chloe dreams of surrender. Can this rebel find a way to keep the peace with the straitlaced sheriff? Or will Chloe’s colorful past keep her from a love that lasts . . . and the safe haven she truly wants in a town called Lucky Harbor?
