BOOK REVIEW- Lost and Found Sisters by Jill Shalvis

They say life can change in an instant…

After losing her sister in a devastating car accident, chef Quinn Weller is finally getting her life back on track. She appears to have it all: a loving family, a dream job in one of L.A.'s hottest eateries, and a gorgeous boyfriend dying to slip an engagement ring on her finger. So why does she feel so empty, like she's looking for a missing piece she can't find?

The answer comes when a lawyer tracks down Quinn and reveals a bombshell secret and a mysterious inheritance that only she can claim. This shocking revelation washes over Quinn like a tidal wave. Her whole life has been a lie.

On impulse, Quinn gives up her job, home, and boyfriend. She heads up the coast to the small hometown of Wildstone, California, which is just a few hours north, but feels worlds apart from Los Angeles. Though she doesn't quite fit in right away, she can't help but be drawn to the town’s simple pleasures…and the handsome, dark-haired stranger who offers friendship with no questions asked.

As Quinn settles into Wildstone, she discovers there's another surprise in store for her. The inheritance isn't a house or money, but rather something earthshattering, something that will make her question everything she thought she knew about herself, about her family. Now with a world of possibilities opening up to Quinn, she must decide if this new life is the one she was always meant to have—and the one that could finally give her the fulfillment she's searched so long for.

I've been looking forward to reading this story for quite a while.  In fact from the very first moment I heard about it. This author has done it again.  I enjoyed every moment of it and just ate it up in one day!
Whew.  I am so glad that the story didn't disappoint.  
The main characters were great.  I really enjoyed their depth.  And the agony of the things they were going through or had gone through.  Qui,nn's life was turned upside down for sure but so was Tilly's.  I'm not saying who she is you will just have to read it to find out who she is and how she fits in the story.    Mick is a good guy who shows up in her life while she is "temporarily" in Wildstone.  He helps her more than once and is a steady guy even though neither one of them is looking for anything permanent.  Yeah, that's when some of the best stuff happens.
I also liked some of the people who were unique characters in the community of Wildstone.  They added to the fun, making things to smile at when things got tough.
I do have to say I laughed or smiled more than once at some of the truly funny conversations that happened between Quinn and Mick.  Well, not not only Mick.   It seems like anyone encountering conversations with Quinn had the opportunity to have some pretty funny conversations. That made it one of the things I liked best.   I liked how one person said that she was amusing to watch, that she was the Quinn Show. 
I liked how the story ended and the Epilogue was a good plus.

There is also a quick look into another book called, "Wrapped up in You" which is another book that I have wanted to read.
