When I saw via live feed that Jill Shalvis won the 2015 RITA award for Contemporary Mid-Length Romance at the recent Romance Writers of America convention in New York City, I knew I had to read her book. One in a Million was, indeed, a winner.
The plot was not too revolutionary. Two people, each dumped by a previous love interest, are commitment-phobic.
The characters, however, are what made this book a delight for me. Callie is a lovable klutz whose business as a virtual wedding planner means receiving hilarious text messages from a series of panicky bridezillas. Tanner is a delicious alpha male, trying to learn how to be a dad to a teenage mini-me.
Callie’s social media savvy grandma leads the supporting cast with flair. As is often the case with books set in small towns, Lucky Harbor is also a character.
Callie’s two BFFs have their own earlier books. I have not read those yet. Is it important to read a series in order?
