Summer With Shalvis Blog Tour!

I am so excited and pleased to be hosting JILL SHALVIS today on my blog!  I've got a short interview with Jill and review. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the post.

If you are a new visitor, I hope you like what you see and perhaps give the blog a follow. For returning guests, as always, thank you, and I appreciate it.

I'm happy to have you here today, Jill! Let's go ahead and begin the short interview!

What draws you to contemporary romance?
It’s what I love to read, so it’s a natural fit for me.  Plus I like writing real people with real problems and giving them happy ever afters.

How do you keep track of all your different series when writing?
I keep a “bible” with everything written down.  Right now it’s the Lucky Harbor series and the Animal Magnetism series, and they’re different enough that it’s not hard.

Plotter or write from the seat of your pants?
Ha.  Since my editor might be reading this, I’m going to go with PLOTTER.  Very careful plotter!!!  Which is the easier way to write, to be honest (but if left to my devices, I’m totally a seat of my pants kinda woman :)


Amy Michaels loves her new life in Lucky Harbor. A waitress in the local diner, she’s looking forward to her first weekend hike through the mountains. But when a wrong turn takes her off the trail, she finds herself up close and personal with forest ranger Matt Bowers. And even though she’s tempted to kiss that sexy smile right off his face, she won’t make the mistake of getting involved with the town heartthrob.
A former cop whose life went south, Matt doesn’t let anyone get too close. But something about the feisty beauty caught his eye the moment he first saw her in the diner. After a hot night under a starry sky, Matt can’t deny their attraction-or the fact that for the first time in a long time, he feels the stirrings of something more. Now it’s up to Matt to help Amy see that, no matter what is in their past, together they can build a future in Lucky Harbor.


Jill Shalvis writes heartwarming stories with wit, charm, and heart. Her fictional town, Lucky Harbor, is a place only we can dream about. It's a well crafted small town that draws the hearts of readers everywhere. I think this is Shalvis's best series yet! It makes me want to leave my big city life to go live in Lucky Harbor.

At Last, the fifth installment set in this great community features Amy and Matt front and center.  Stubborn headedness is matched with this pair as the sparks fly. Readers are sure to enjoy the good, the bad, and the quirky that comes with living in a small town.  There's life lessons to be learned, love to be found, and fun to be had.

If you're not visiting Lucky Harbor, you're missing out. What are you waiting for?  Join the excitement and make your reservations today.  At Last is another great story, not to be missed. Shalvis is on my must buy list!

At Last can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, in both print and ebook, and check your local bookstores!

  1. Fun mini-interview! I am a diehard Jill Shalvis fan - the minute a book goes up on the preorder pages on Amazon - I'm there! She's a go to author for me when I need something that will make me sigh and smile:)

  2. Nice interview, short and sweet! :) Loved the blurb to this book. I'll be adding it to my TBR list. Thanks for sharing.
