Jill Shalvis? OK, I’ll read it, sounds pretty good….. So I get a free copy of Jill Shalvis’ upcoming novel The Lemon Sisters while at BookCon because I purchased an older copy of one of her books. (The other book had a cute dog on it, I couldn’t pass it up). Truthfully I hadn’t heard of her, but her books sounded good, so I figured I would give them a try. Being a reviewer, I couldn’t pass
