    Rainy Day Friends is book two in the Wildstone series by Jill Shalvis. I have often proclaimed my love of all things Jill Shalvis. But just when I think I couldn’t love her any more, she writes a book like this one, and more love spills out. I don’t know how she does it but I love her more with every book!Lanie Jacobs is broken. She lost her husband of five years, six months ago. But while grieving for the man she thought loved her, she found...

    5 - "Still wow." Stars!We return to Wildstone for the second book in Jill Shalvis’ series of the same name. And I can hands-down say that Rainy Day Friends is one of the best books I have read by this author.From the introduction to the whole of the Capriotti family and their winery business in general, to Lanie Jacobs and Mark Capriotti, and their relationship specifically. There aren’t many authors that can tell a story with such heavy them...

    4.5 StarsI needed this book. I needed the sweet building of love, intimacy, and friendship. I needed to know that compassion and humanity still existed, even if it's just on paper. Rainy Day Friends was a heartwarming and affecting book about betrayal of the ultimate trust and learning to not just forgive others but yourself, as well. It is a story about finding companionship, faith, and loyalty when you least expect it. It is a story that focuse...

    I ADORE THESE BOOKS! I really did mentally shout that. Seriously, I woke my husband up last night by laughing out loud. I wanted to send quotes to a friend, but it was a little late to text, I had tears in my eyes and had to rein in the silent laughter because I worried I would wake up the family and there were highly emotional parts on all the feelings! Read the books! I really should say - I was super lucky to read an early digital arc, and sta...

    And she does it again! I know when I pick up a Jill Shalvis book, it will be a well written book that is humorous and have a cast of characters that I'd love to have in my world.

    I want to be a member of the Capriotti family, either by blood or by choice! I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was funny, witty, and emotional. And, don’t get me started with Mark, very hot, alpha, and considerate to Lainie and his daughters. I’ve been a fan of Jill Shalvis’ for years and have probably read everything that she’s written and feel that “Rainy Day Friends” is in the top five of her books (actually it’s number 1). This...

    This book kinda surprised me; I liked it a lot more than I was anticipating. Lanie is picking up the pieces of her life after the death of her husband; the husband that seemed to collect wives the way one would collected travel thimbles. Lanie feels lots of things; but most of all she feels as though she is unloveable. When she takes a job on a winery, far from her home, she is taken aback by the welcoming, nosy, loving family that runs it. Enter...

    To find strength, fears have to be faced, life has to be lived and pain has to be felt. For in our weakest moments is when we are at our most powerful. Rainy Day Friends gives one woman the courage to take on heartbreaking betrayal and reach for the stars. Shalvis is at her best when she takes on reality. Lanie Jacobs is a manifestation of women everywhere. She gave her heart with the best of intentions and came away with more heartache than she ...

    Another amazing, heartfelt story of family and love. These Wildstone books are more emotionally layered and focus on the family dynamic as much as they couple(s) but still have all the same Shalvis humor and banter. Lainey and Mark, River and Holden, Sam and Sierra, River and Lainey, Mark and his daughters, Cora and Everyone: so many relationships and exploration of what love, family, forgiveness, and bravery all mean.

    Shalvis has long since been one of my favorite authors and again she does not disappoint. The wild stone series is a bit different from her other books but I love them just the same. Less romance more focus on family and friends. I adored the Capriotti family. Fun and boisterous and nosy as all get out. Lanie definitely needs that in her life. At times being inside Lanie’s head was painful, she’d been through so much because of her jerk husba...

    I think this book is the best book by Jill Shalvis that I've read. I loved Lanie and Mark and all the other characters involved. Who wouldn't love working at this family winery where most employees are family members and lunch is catered every work day. The Capriotti's are fun, nosy, and in your face. Which as an introvert I would hate it but love it too. I love everything about this book. The only thing I can say I didn't like, which is a person...

    Rainy Day Friends by Jill Shalvis is a Wildstone series book and of course another great one from this author. I loved the format of this book, and I really don’t think I’ve seen it before, of each page having an interaction between Lanie and her anxiety.Lanie (Delaney) Jacobs is 30, starting a new job 2 hours away from her old life and leaving everything behind (including her anxiety) for 2 months. Unfortunately her anxiety decides to come ...

    Love…..often times it is beautiful and fills your soul. Then there are times when love crushes your soul and leaves you broken on the inside. Especially when the love you counted on was nothing as you imagined. A stark realization from the life that you thought you had. For Lanie Jacobs – love ended up crushing her heart. The man that Lanie was married to for years hid a secret. A secret that had consequences that have come crashing into Lani...

When I saw this new release (and that cover) I knew this had to be the one I grabbed for first.

    For the last year Lanie Jacob's has been mourning the loss of her husband, it broke her heart in two when he left this earth, especially knowing they would never grow old together. But what she didn't know is that her loving husband was playing a loving husband to several other women during the course of their wedding. All that time she thought she was his one and only, but that couldn't have been farther from the truth... and damn did that sting...

    IF there is ONE book that you need to get a hold of as soon as it releases- it's this book. I needed this book. There is magic to Jill Shalvis' ability to capture a good story and deliver it to her readers. She draws you in, makes you feel like you are a part of the story and weaves her way through your life until it feels like she's almost telling YOUR story. I was lucky enough to get an ARC in paperback. I told myself I'd read one chapter and I...

    PoignantWhile there is plenty of the classic Jill Shalvis humor in Rainy Day Friends, this one hit me right in the feels. I’m a sucker for a strong single dad Hero, trying to keep it all together, putting love on the back burner. Single dad to 6-year-old twin girls, I might add. Oh, and did I say he was a Deputy Sheriff and veteran? Catnip city!Mark is part of a sprawling family, by blood and by choice. A collection of strays, employees, and fa...

    I always enjoy a Jill Shalvis book but Rainy Day Friends almost got me thrown out of a waiting room because I laughed loud and hard. What a great story! As someone of Italian heritage, Ms. Shalvis hit the nail on the head with the Capriotti family and how crazy a big, extended family can be. I felt like I was back in my hometown.Simply put, the story is about Lanie Jacobs and Mark Capriotti. Lanie has been raised as a (let’s call it) loner whil...
