The Good Luck Sister
Reviewed in the United States on May 1, 2018
So this is one of those "drop whatever else your doing and read this now" type of books. At least, it was for me having just finished Lost and Found Sisters. Dylan and Tilly's young adult story really stuck out for me. When I learned that Jill Shalvis was giving them a novella I was over the moon about it. Probably even more so when I read the synopsis and learned that the timeline is flashing forward ten years and eight years ago Dylan up and left Wildstone and Tilly without a word and now he's back and wants to make things right with Tilly.
I think this novella is helped by the fact that there's quite a bit of setup from the previous full-length book. Most readers will be familiar with Dylan and Tilly, but even if you haven't read the first book and you have just stumbled upon The Good Luck Sister, I still think you'll enjoy it, but it's definitely better enjoyed if you've read Lost and Found Sisters first.
With that said, when we got down to the story, I'm a huge fan of second-chance romances and Dylan and Tilly's hit all the right spots for me in this regard.
Where things get a little off is probably the fact that I, literally, just finished reading Lost and Found Sisters. Everything was still fresh in my mind which is good, but Jill Shalvis uses some flashback scenes to enhance this story, said flashbacks are scenes from Lost and Found Sisters verbatim, which work well with the story and for those who haven't read the first book or maybe haven't recently read the first book, but for me it felt a little repetitive. I would have loved maybe just a couple of flashbacks that we haven't already read. Maybe during the time period where they were separated.
Overall, though, if you were like me and felt that Dylan and Tilly needed more to their story, you won't be disappointed. I would have loved for it to be longer, but I'll settle for, hopefully, seeing them pop up in the upcoming standalone sequel Rainy Day Friends.
