Forever and a Day by Jill Shalvis

Forever and a Day is the last of the Lucky Harbor novels that I read last month.  The series is nicely divided in half with the first three novels being about the three sisters who inherit the inn in Lucky Harbor (Maddie, Tara, & Chloe) and the last three being about three friends (Amy, Mallory & Grace.) Forever and a Day is Grace's story.

Grace has landed in Lucky Harbor when her money runs out. She's recently lost her job and discovered that the one she had lined up has demands she's not willing to meet. She's hiding in Lucky Harbor to lick her wounds while she looks for another one. Dr. Josh is stressed to his limits. He has a small son and is guardian of a troublemaker sister. His private practice is overwhelming him and the hospital wants to buy him out. Josh hires Grace to dog sit the crazy puppy his sister insisted they needed and it quickly turns into a full time nanny position. Meanwhile, Grace is struggling with the idea that she's not living up to her parent's dream but is starting to find satisfaction in small personal jobs in Lucky Harbor. 

Grace and Josh have the same immediate chemistry that all the inhabitants of Lucky Harbor seem to have. Josh is built from the same super hot material that every single man in Lucky Harbor is made out of and is just as dedicated to his job and family. Josh and Grace take a while to come to believe in each other's sticking power, but, as you would expect, they eventually come together satisfactorily.

I am incredibly happy to have stumbled upon Jill Shalvis and the Lucky Harbor series. I would highly recommend them to any fan of contemporary romance novels.  The books could be read out of order, but if you're starting from scratch the order of the Lucky Harbor novels is:

Simple Irresistible
The Sweetest Thing
Head Over Heels
Lucky In Love
At Last
Forever and a Day

A quick look at author Jill Shalvis' website indicates that there are a few more in the works, and I'm sure I'll be picking those up too.
