Review of Forever and a Day (Lucky Harbor, #6) By Jill Shalvis

Thanks to the publisher, Grand Central Publishing, and NetGalley for the chance to read this early!

Welcome back to the Lucky Harbor, Washington. 

The author introduced the Chocoholics: ~~ Mallory Quinn ~~ Amy Michaels ~~ Grace Brooks ~~ in Lucky in Love.  Gave us Amy’s story in … At Last.  Now for the final book in the Chocoholic trilogy with newcomer Grace Brooks, and Doctor Joshua Scott aka Dr. McHottie. 

Grace landed in Lucky Harbor due to a misunderstanding about her new job responsibilities.  She had initially relocated from NY to WA for a banking job; only to discover that her boss was a pervert.  Not wanting to put out for her new boss she left Seattle and drove until her car was empty.  She ended up at the Eat Me diner during a snow storm, met Mallory and Amy and the Chocoholics were born.  So she is stuck in a strange town, unemployed, and about to OD on chocolate.  Her next step…is to find a job…any job…before her savings runs out. 

Ok, let me stipulate up front that I wasn’t looking forward to Josh’s story.  I was exhausted just listening to the snippets we got about him from his friends book.  His life seemed like it was so chaotic.  Let’s take a look at what was already on his plate prior to his sister bringing home the demon puppy, Tank.  His family life includes bring a single dad to his 5-year-old son, Toby.  While also taking care of his 21-year-old sister, Anna, a highly functioning paraplegic with the boyfriend from hell.  His professional life isn’t any less crazy it includes 2 shifts a week in the Hospital ER, 4 shifts at his dad private practice, and volunteering as often as possible to the HSC. 

Tank, aka the antichrist, brings Grace and Josh together.  Josh needs a dog walker and Grace needs a job. 

With Grace’s strength of character and Josh’s intractability I bet Ms. Shalvis was to commit character-cide when she was writing this…the HEA is everything you expect and these characters deserve.  This book is filled with Sex & Chaos. 

A big THANK YOU to Ms. Shalvis – for continuing to return to Lucky harbor and bring me the characters I fell in love with.  I can’t wait to see what happens next in Lucky Harbor
