Love can happen in a heartbeat.

Grace never thought she’d be starting her life over from scratch. Losing everything has landed her in Lucky Harbor, working as a dog walker for overwhelmed ER doctor Josh Scott. But the day his nanny fails to show up, Grace goes from caring for Josh’s loveable mutt to caring for his rambunctious kids. Soon Grace is playing house with the sexy single dad…

With so many people depending on him, Josh has no time for anything outside of his clinic and family–until Grace arrives in town. Now this brainy blonde is turning his life inside out and giving a whole new meaning to the phrase “good bedside manner.” Josh and Grace don’t know if what they have can last. But in a town like Lucky Harbor, a lifetime of love starts with just one day…


Jill Shalvis is one of the most consistently good romance writers today. I know that when I pick up one of her novels, I'm in for a feel-good romance.

Forever and a Day was an incredibly touching story. You couldn't help but smile as you read this story - as there were a lot of moments to make you smile in there. Cute, funny moments as you'd expect when a puppy and a five year-old are main characters. Josh's selflessness and protective nature just made my heart melt for him. Sheriff Sawyer has some competition for sweetest guy in Lucky Harbor. It helps that he's super sexy too. Josh and Grace had great chemistry and I loved the tension created by the fact at any moment Grace would have to leave.

Overall, a sweet, feel-good romance. A great ending to a great series by Jill Shalvis!
