Book Review: It's in His Kiss by Jill Shalvis

This is my first read by author Jill Shalvis, It's in His Kiss and I found it to be a great story of finding one's way in a new town, following your heart in life, work, and romance. I plan on reading more of her books!

Set in Lucky Harbor on the Pacific Ocean, Becca Thorpe retreats here for a get away from her family and problems in her home town. She takes up residency in an old building next to Lucky Harbor Charter that offers fishing trips, scuba diving, and boat building. There are a few handsome men that run the charter.

Becca meet Sam-from Lucky Harbor Charter as she is looking for the address of her new rental. He's a bit short in conversation with her, but over time they get to know each other. She begins a new job as the office manager for the charter business. Organizing and helping the guys run the business she finds herself with and offer the town to teach music to the school children. 

The relationship between Becca and Sam grows as does her relationship with the friendly warm towns people. Things are going her way, new job, new boyfriend, new friends, and then old family show up in Lucky Harbor.  The family she moved away from to be on her own. Now her brother and parents are in town asking her to return. Her brother Jase is needy and Becca has been taking care of him for so long she now wants her own life.

Will Becca stay in Lucky Harbor and let her family return home without her? Will Sam let that happen? I can't tell you that-but it's a great book to read!

The sun, the sand, the surf, the boats, the Pacific Ocean town of Lucky Harbor, the romance, the not-so-romance, and friends becoming Becca's family of friends.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews.

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
