"Fall in love with Jill Shalvis! She's my go-to read for humor and heart."-- Susan Mallery, New York Times bestselling author
Beloved New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis begins a new series--Sunrise Cove--set near beautiful Lake Tahoe, with a heartwarming story of found family and love.
During the snowstorm of the century Levi Cutler is stranded on a ski lift with a beautiful stranger named Jane. After strong winds hurl the gondola in front of them into the ground, Levi calls his parents to prepare them for the worst...but can't bring himself to say goodbye. Instead, wanting to fulfill his mother's lifelong wish, he impulsively tells her he's happily settled and Jane is his girlfriend--right before his phone dies.
But Levi and Jane do not.
Now Levi's family is desperate to meet "The One." Though Jane agrees to be his pretend girlfriend for just one dinner, she's nervous. After a traumatic childhood, Jane isn't sure she knows how to be around a tight-knit family that cherishes one another. She's terrified, and a little jealous. But an unexpected series of events and a host of new friends soon show Jane that perhaps this is the life she was always meant to have.
As Jane and Levi spend more time together, pretend feelings quickly turn into real ones. Now all Jane has to do is admit to herself she can't live without the man she's fallen in love with and the family she has always dreamed of.
Fall in love with Jill Shalvis! She's my go-to read for humor and heart.-- "Susan Mallery, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author"

Levi and Jane do not meet under the best of circumstances, it actually might be the worst of circumstances... Cue a fake relationship that becomes very real for both of them fairly quickly, where they both doubt that they deserve love, or that what they have can be something that will continue to grow over time.
Levi's family is full of nosy people, but I loved them! And Jane's found family is so amazing I want to share it with her :)
Shalvis always manages to tug at my heartstrings, and I felt all the feels reading about Levi and Jane, and how they were able to help each other because they had emotional strength in different areas.
I enjoy the character development & writing style of Ms. Shalvis. As always, the first book in the series introduces us to the main characters, the location & sets the scene for the series. Her descriptions of the characters & location allow you to bond with the characters & have you emotionally involved in the outcomes. After a start like this, I can’t wait for the rest of the series!
The Family You Make we are not only introduced to a new book but also a new series. We meet Jane and Levi. Jane and Levi meet under an unusual and exciting yet stressful situation. Their chemistry is undeniable. Enter a fake relationship that turns more real. I just love the Fake Relationship book trope. I really enjoyed watching Levi and Jane grow individually and together. Their journey was heartfelt.
I loved all the secondary characters especially Charlotte and Mateo. Even though Levi's family seemed very nosey and at times frustrating, I loved them. I felt as if I were actually there and not reading a book. Jill Shalvis captivated my heart and soul from page one. I cried and laughed and had many heartswooning moments. I couldn't put the book down. I became invested in The Family You Make. I felt I could relate to them personally. The Family You Make is a story of love, friendship, family and hope.
Levi and Jane meet under stressful circumstances. And both need a faux partner so they decide to pair up and be the person the other needs to keep others from trying to set them up. But along the way, Levi and Jane realize that they have actually fallen for each other.
Levi has a very nosy, loving family who are all up in each other's business. And Jane finally realizes that she has a family who cares about her. She has a family she has made of friends who are her real family.
"The Family You Make" is a feel good book you didn't know you need right now. It is a cold bitter January in parts of the world so grab a copy of this wonderful book and curl up with your favorite hot drink and just escape into this wonderful group of characters.
Jane rents a room from coworker/friend Charlotte. Charlotte doctor has her own issues with trust but handsome ER doctor/next door neighbor, Mateo hopes to break down the barriers. Jane also has trust family issues and soon finds out that the best family is what you find not with what you are born with.
Loved this cast characters, so many laugh out moments. Two heartfelt relationships that I loved . I highly recommend this book!!
Everyone in the book has issues with relating with others, but the love comes through no matter what. Even Levi's dad opens up a little. I like that it's obvious that blood family is not the only type of family that exists and is not necessarily the most important type.
My only negative response to the book is the section with the gondolas. I'm already scared of the things. I may never ride one again.
As always, I can't wait for the next book. As I said, I always enjoy them.
4.5 out of 5 wine glasses.
