The Good Luck Sister by Jill Shalvis

A novella in New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis's Wildstone series, featuring her trademark gift for humour, warmth and romance. Perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts and Marie Force.

This summer, romance blooms again in Wildstone!

After a difficult few years, Tilly Adams is ready for life to start going right. Though she has a case of first day nerves teaching art at the local community college, she knows it isn’t anything a few snuggles from her rescue puppy won’t cure. Until she sees Dylan Scott again, her one time bff and first love sitting in the front row.

Dylan knows he should’ve left well enough alone, but when he sees Tilly living her dream, he can’t help but make contact. Ten years ago, he left Wildstone and everything in it behind, including Tilly. He had his reasons, but now he wants her back in his life, anyway he can get her.

When Tilly agrees to design the logo for Dylan’s new helicopter touring company, it’s business only…until she finds herself falling into his arms once again. Can she possibly open her heart back up to the only man who’s ever broken it? But soon they’re both realizing the truth -- love always deserves a second chance.

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
This short story resolves Tilly and Dylan's story. Tilly still suffers from the insecurities that she always has, of not being "enough" for people to stay. Dylan has wanted more for Tilly, to the point that he left her abruptly to join the military.

Now that he's back, he wants to resolve the way he left and be friends with her, but Tilly is not as forgiving as he would hope. Tilly just feels lost and unloved.

As they resolve the issues of the past, they find the sparks still burn hot.

This is a follow on from Lost and Found Sisters, and I would suggest that you read that first: a) it is a fantastic story, b) this will make more sense. That said, I think you would love this whatever!

Tilly is all grown up and still living on the island. She is still very close to her sister, Quinn, who is about to give birth, her niece and to Mick. She enters her first ever classroom to find her first love sitting at a desk, eight years after he left her high and dry.

I really enjoyed how each chapter gives us more of their history and then switches to now, and how they need to move forward. There are both Dylan's friends and Quinn all trying to make good things happen. There are some really funny lines, but I also managed to shed a few tears. For quite a short book, we get a very well rounded, romantic, and meaningful story – not that one should be surprised, Ms. Shalvis is a master at her craft.

I'm excited for the release of the next book in the series in June.
