Book Review for The Summer Escape by Jill Shalvis

 Sunrise Cove #6 

The Summer Escape by Jill Shalvis 

Published June 11, 2024 by Avon 

Genre:  Contemporary Romance 


Taken from Goodreads: 
Secrets are revealed and forbidden sparks ignited in this sizzling Sunrise Cove tale of enemies to lovers, redemption, missing treasures, and love—by romance superstar and New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis. 
Anna Moore didn’t just wake up one day and decide to go on a wild quest — especially since her life no longer lends itself to wild anything — so how in the world does she end up racing against the clock with Owen Harris, a sexy, enigmatic adventurist, to prove her beloved dad innocent of stealing a million-dollar necklace?  
It’s all Wendy’s fault. Her older, bossy sister, who’s seven months pregnant and on bed rest in their small Lake Tahoe hometown, is desperate to clear their dad’s name. Owen though is convinced he’s guilty as hell and wants to return the jewelry back to its rightful owner—his elderly great aunt. Together they go on a scavenger hunt for clues to the past (with Wendy remotely along for the ride via an ear bud, supplying a running wry commentary to boot).   
On opposing sides and suspicious of each other as they are, Anna and Owen still can’t deny the inexplicable and explosive chemistry between them on this heart-stopping adventure, the outcome of which will prove the necklace isn’t the only thing stolen — their hearts have been as well. 


My ThoughtsJill Shalvis is the author to read when you are looking for fun characters and a storyline you can fall into and never want to leaveWith each book of hers she cements herself as a must-read author.  


Anna and Wendy are sisters as only sisters can beThey whine at each other, they fight with each other, and more than anything else they love each other.   I love how they go back and forth at each other, but you can feel the love and respect.   These two are hilarious but realWhile the sister relationships are great, the romantic relationships the sisters have with their significant others are even better.   Hayden and Owen understand their ladies and know exactly what they need and when they need it.  


Everything about this book was perfect.   I was lost in Anna and Wendy’s world and did not want to leave.   There is so much comfort in reading an amazing book.   


Thank you Avon Books for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
