MY REVIEW OF “RAINY DAY FRIENDS ” BY Jill Shalvis Kindle Edition William Morrow Paperback June 19, 2018
“Rainy Day Friends” by Jill Shalvis is an entertaining, captivating, emotional read. The Genres for this story are Fiction, Women’s Fiction and Romance. The timeline of the story is in the present and goes only to the past when it pertains to the events or characters of the story. The story takes place mostly at the Capriotti family run Winery.
The author describes her characters as complicated and complex possibly due to the circumstances in their lives. This is novel about betrayal, heartbreak, second chances, family, friends, love, and hope
The Capriotti family is an outgoing, boisterous, and friendly family. One of the things that I like best in this story, is that the Capriotti’s seem to be a family that believes in second chances and being kind and helpful to others.
Lanie Jacobs takes a graphic design job at the Winery after she finds out that her deceased husband holds a deep dark secret that embarrasses and torments her. Lanie tries to keep to herself but finds it is very hard to do so with this family. River Brown also arrives at the Winery, pregnant, and under false pretenses takes a job there as well. Little does Lanie realize that Riley has some dark secrets that can cause a rippling effect.
I would recommend this novel to those readers that enjoy Women’s Fiction, Romance, second chances, with a touch of suspense.
