One in a Million book review


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?

One thought on “One in a Million book review

  1. For this series, I don’t think it’s important to read the books in order. The Lucky Harbor series was broken into trilogies. Each trilogies focuses on three friends ( or siblings in the case of the first three books) as they fall in love. While it is helpful to read the other two books, it’s not necessary to the plot of any of them.
