Rainy Day Friends (Wildstone #2) Reviews
I’m giving up on getting a bikini body, so pass the butter, please. Grandma says the good Lord put alcohol and carbs on this planet for a reason and I’ll be damned if I’m going to let Him down.
But after Kyle had passed away, some things had come to light. Such as the fact that he’d hidden an addiction from her. A wife addiction. It’d gone a long way toward getting her over the hump of the grieving process.
Most of my wrinkles are from laughter, except for these right between my e ...more
Jill Shalvis new Wildstone series have been all winners for me starting with Lost and Found Sisters, followed by Good Luck Sister and now Rainy Day Friends.
“I’ve learned that life is a crapshoot, and at any moment someone can walk into it and change it forever.”
I loved this book. I loved it more than I expected I would. That sounds like a backhanded compliment but let me explain. This book was marketed as Women's Fiction, a genre that I read but not exactly my go-to genre. There's always a r ...more
In the second book in the Wildstone series, this time we have a heroine who suffers from panic and anxiety. As a person who suffers from the same, I found this incredibly fun to read about. I thought that Jill Shalvis did a really good job of exploring the issue and making light of it in some instances. Overall, I thought she did a good job with it. My only complaint about this is that the anxiety only really occurs when Lanie is alone. When she is with her friends or Mark, we don’t really see ...more
Like in the previous book in the Wildstone series, this one is about not one woman but two women who'll meet under shocking circumstances but will eventually find the silver lining of all this. Lanie, a thirty-year-old woman who lost her husband just six months ago, only to learn after his death that she wasn't his only wife... And River, twenty-one, a young woman who lost her mother at fifteen and was lonely ever since. Both put up walls around their heart but doesn't stand a chance against the ...more
I was in the middle of reading a pretty tough and heavy book and I needed a break from it. I had to read and review RAINY DAY FRIENDS soon so I figured it would be the perfect book to take my mind off my current read and to help get me over the middle of a book slump. And man was I right, RAINY DAY FRIENDS was just what I needed. Light. Funny. Emotional. Exactly the kind of story that I love to read during the summertime.
Lanie’s husband died six months ago. And instead of grieving about his deat ...more

*I received a free copy of [title] from [publisher] via Edelweiss. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review, which is honest and unbiased *Rainy Day Friends was a very emotional read. I cried so hard! But I also laughed and swooned very hard!
Lanie had really been through hell and back before Rainy Day Friends even started. She felt like nothing in her life was right anymore, which is one of the reasons why she took ...more
Finding a new path…
I felt guilty for my thoughts while reading Rainy Day Friends. I wanted to hate a pregnant woman. I wanted to hate a man in the army who dedicated his life to his career instead of his family. I wanted to hate a mother for blaming her child for her mistakes. But, in true Jill Shalvis fashion, I learned to love them more for their life blunders.
The choices we make in our lives lead us down a path. Sometimes the path we choose is bumpy and can even take us ...more
Seriously Rainy Day Friends was like book crack to me. Once I started reading this story, I didn't want to put the book down. This book made me laugh out loud in public while reading, gave me happy signs and even a few tears.
Lanie Jacobs needs a break from her life in after discovering her husband not only married her, but several other women. I loved how Lanie was a bit of a fish out of water around the Capriotti clan in the beginning. As she never had a close knit family, suddenly being drawn ...more
