The Backup Plan by Jill Shalvis #booktwitter #bookreview @avonbooks @jillshalvis


New York Times bestselling authorJill Shalvis returns to Sunrise Cove with a heartwarming tale of three people who are brought together when they’re bequeathed an old Wild West inn that has the potential to pull their lives apart, but instead turns into the gift of a lifetime.

When Alice receives a call about an unexpected windfall, she’s stunned to learn the gift is a falling-apart-at-the-seams old Wild West B&B she once considered home—and she’s inherited it along with two strangers. Except they weren’t always strangers. Once upon a time, they were friends. One is her ex-BFF Lauren. The other is Knox, the only guy to ever break her heart, all while never even knowing she existed.

It turns out their lives are unknowingly entangled because they once separately helped the same woman without expecting anything in return. Years later, Alice, Lauren, and Knox are broken in their own way, with their own history—and secrets— causing them to start out on the wrong foot with each other. But according to the will, they must renovate and be partners in the inn for one year or else lose their inheritance.

Stuck together, they make a list of rules to keep the peace—rules that end up doing the opposite, but by some miracle they find what they didn’t even know they were looking for—acceptance, true friendship, and in a case (or two!), true love.


Knox, Lauren and Alice have inherited a Wild West B&B. These three have a past and it is full of hurt feelings and heart break. But, they decide to put aside their differences and come together to fix this fixer upper. It turns out to be the lifeline they all need.

I fell hard for Knox. I mean…who wouldn’t! Then there is Lauren. Talk about quirky! She is no nonsense and tough. Add sweet, mild Alice to the mix and you have a perfect blend of characters to keep this story animated!

No one does snarky like Jill Shalvis. This author has become my “go to” for anything light. I always laugh and get caught up in the story. And this one is no different. I swear, I know every character in this book, or at least, related to them!

Need a light hearted romance with a kick…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
