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 earth-shattering, 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.

*My Thoughts*

Note: This review contains NO spoilers

One of the cool things I love about being a booknerd/book blogger is discovering new authors (new to me, anyways), so when I read the synopsis to this first book in a new series by Jill Shalvis, it grabbed my attention. So, yeah!!! I got the opportunity to read this lovely story of a sister lost and a sister found; hence, the title Lost and Found Sisters. From start to finish, I was completely captivated by Jill's characters. Of course, I don't want to ruin it for those that haven't read this contemporary story of loss, love, friendship, and new beginnings, so, yeah, NO spoilers. The synopsis pretty much sums up the gist of the book. And, I gotta tell ya, I loved and enjoyed this interesting and heartfelt read.

The world-building and character development is so well done that I can "picture" this quaint little coastal town and all its quirky characters whom of which are filled with strong and colorful personalities. The descriptions of their surroundings are so detailed that I could "see" it, and "witness" what these characters are experiencing. Many of these characters are so likeable, even when being mean...hahaha!!! There is so much depth to these characters that Jill's writings gives them a lot of complexities to their personalities....she even gave them sass that made it funny. Yup! There is some humor found throughout the book, so, it's not all drama. I enjoyed the balance of drama, romance, and humor that gave this story a realism that readers could relate to either personally or in general.

And, this is only the first book in this new series!!??!! Ugh! Yup! I was completely immersed into Qunn's story and with all the residents of Wildstone. So... All in all, Jill Shalvis created an all new story of family, romance, and humor in this standalone first book in the Wildstone series. A definite summer "must-read."
