(from our DIK review) Sweet Little Lies is the start of a new series from Jill Shalvis and if you’re already a fan of hers, you will find nothing to complain about here. Pru is a secret-keeping, self-sufficient tourist tour-boat captain in San Francisco with a heart as big as the Pacific Ocean. Finn is a recalcitrant pub owner who works more hours than God sends to keep both his pub and his friends safe, successful, and happy. When Pru moves into the building above the pub, and therefore smack into Finn’s circle, the two are bound to meet, and when they do, sparks fly. But when that move appears more like a machination, Finn has some choices to make as they find their way to that happily ever after. I am generally a sucker for Shalvis’ works. I gobble them up like the literary equivalent of chocolate ice cream, and they make my soul just as happy. I love how she writes tribes of friends (or, “framily” as I call them). I love that there are always slightly kooky side characters that somehow make the world seem fuller. I love that she seems to do all that work in, like, five pages. It’s magic, what this woman does, at least to me.
