Piper Manning’s about as tough as they come, she’s had to be. She raised her siblings and they’ve thankfully flown the coop. All she has to do is finish fixing up the lake house her grandparents left her, sell it, and then she’s free.

When a massive storm hits, she runs into a tall, dark and brooding stranger, Camden Reid. There’s a spark there, one that shocks her. Surprising her further, her sister and brother return, each of them holding their own secrets. The smart move would be for Piper to ignore them all but Cam unleashes emotions deep inside of her that she can’t deny, making her yearn for something she doesn’t understand. And her siblings…well, they need each other.

Only when the secrets come out, it changes everything Piper thinks she knows about her family, herself…and Cam. Can she find a way to outrun the demons? The answer is closer than she thinks—just as the new life she craves may have already begun.

Tracey’s Review

As a fan of Jill Shalvis, it took exactly no time for me to fall in love with her Wildstone series. The characters that inhabit this world are not perfect, but, rather living life the way that most of us do, highs and lows, doing the best that they can. There is a realness to them that makes them more approachable, more relatable, more lovable, and I always truly enjoy getting to know them.

ALMOST JUST FRIENDS, the fourth and latest book in the series, is a love story, yes, but also a picture of an imperfect family dynamic. In both the relationships between Piper and her siblings, and the one between Cam and his father Emmitt, Jill shows just how hard it can be to relate to the people that you’re closest to, even when there is love.

I thoroughly enjoyed all of the interwoven stories here, and seeing the growth that occurs in all of the relationships. There is never a time that I finish one of Jill’s books without it leaving a lasting impression, and ALMOST JUST FRIENDS is no different. This is a book, and a series, that I heartily recommend. If you’re looking for a read that will hit you directly in the feels and leave you the happier for it, this is it. Happy reading. ❤️
