Just finished Once in a Lifetime and thoroughly enjoyed the story. I am a Lucky Harbor fan even though I wasn't sure about this one.

Turns out Aubrey isn't as mean and cold as she has appeared in previous books. I though there was more substance to Ben than some of the other Lucky Harbor hero's. Has anyone else read it and what did you think?

I agree with your comments 100%, Dani. While I've enjoyed all of the Lucky Harbor books, I think this one was my favorite.
I'll be sad to see this series end.
A side comment: If you're on Facebook, "Like" Jill's page (if you haven't already). She makes hilarious posts. I love reading about her black Lab, Frat Boy.

I love this series, but this one is my favorite of all of them. I appreciated what Aubrey was trying to do with her list. There was more to Sam than I expected. It is one of my favorites of the year.

Agreed ladies - this was an excellent book! The entire series has been great. I understood the list, and wanting to make things right. Just think, how the world would be a better place if we had more Aubreys out there!

Jill Shalvis will be at Lori Foster's Reader and Author Get Together in Ohio the first week of June. Dani, Lynne & I are going and I am really looking forward to meeting her.

Her FB page is great. She has a dog, Fratboy, who is absolutely hysterical! I pretty much visit to see what he's up to, and the luscious male models she post pics of! :shock:
