This week's neglected book

My Kind of Wonderful by Jill Shalvis

Series: Cedar Ridge #2
Publication Date: December 22, 2015
Publisher: Forever (Grand Central Publishing)
UNEXPECTED AND UNDENIABLE...

Bailey Moore has an agenda: skiing in the Rockies, exploring castles in Europe, ballroom dancing in Argentina. Now that she has a second lease on life, she's determined not to miss a thing. What she doesn't realize is that item #1 comes with a six-foot-one ski god hot enough to melt a polar ice cap. She doesn't want to miss out on him either, but Hudson Kincaid isn't the type of guy to love and let go. And as gorgeous as Cedar Ridge is, she's not planning to stick around.

As head of ski patrol at his family's resort, Hud thinks he's seen it all. But never has he run into someone like Bailey. She might look delicate, but her attitude is all firecracker. And her infectious joy touches something deep within him that he's been missing far too long. Now he'll just have to convince Bailey to take a chance on her biggest adventure yet . . . something rare and all kinds of wonderful.

Why did I add My Kind of Wonderful to my bookshelf?

I am kind of ashamed of the fact that this book is still sitting around unread.  I love Jill Shalvis as regular readers of my blog probably know.  I actually downloaded this book from NetGalley on October 26, 2015 and just never got around to reading it.  I did read the first and third books in the series and enjoyed them so I have no idea why I skipped this one.  This sounds like one I would really like to read and am hoping to fit it in before the end of the year.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it to others?

  1. I have odd kicks in my gallop like that, too. I have whole series read, but skipped the first one or some book in the middle yet I have it on my shelves. It does look great and perfect for this time of the year with the winter theme.

    1. I am on vacation the week of Thanksgiving so I might try to squeeze it in then.

  2. Shalvis is always a yes for me. Although her older stuff leans more romantic suspense, I still like it, because she has a knack for creating a cast of characters I love.

    1. I haven't read too many Shalvis books but have loved those that I have. I can't believe that I skipped over an arc of a Shalvis book!

  3. I don't actually have books in backlog, unless you count the classics that I haven't read and don't intend to

  9. How weird that you jumped over this but read others in the series! I'm convinced that my kindle doesn't always show me All the books I have on it - maybe the same happened to you?

    1. I probably went ahead and read the third one before publication so I could at least get that review in on time and just forgot about this one.

  13. I love Jill Shalvis and I loved Hud, so I enjoyed this book. Shalvis is a go-to for romance for me. I hope you get to it.

    I shudder to think about doing this challenge I have piles of stuff. Mostly things I have purchased or want to get from the library. I try to keep super up-to-date on my ARCs. Anne - Books of My Heart

    1. I do much better with arcs now but I have a small pile that I didn't get to every year since 2013 which has turned into a pretty big stack of books!
