My Kind of Wonderful by Jill Shalvis

Title:My Kind of Wonderful

Author: Jill Shalvis 
Release Day: December 22, 2015
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing


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.

One thing I know for sure is that Jill Shalvis can create amazing characters who aren't going to be easily forgotten.

Hudson Kincaid made his first appearance in Second Chance Summer. He's one of the siblings trying to keep a ski resort afloat. Hudson is very loyal to his family. He takes care of his mom who has dementia and he is super responsible with his work. He manages the mountain as part of the ski patrol, and he's a cop too. He has a twin, Jacob who left years ago after a fight with Hudson which has caused guilty feelings for years. Hudson is not ready to love someone new or put them ahead of his work until he meets Bailey.

Bailey Moore has spent most of her life fighting death after she was diagnosed with lymphoma. For the first time, she has been told her cancer isn't back. Bailey has made a list and she is ready to start living it. First thing on her list is to do a mural. Specifically, a mural at Cedar Ridge where Hudson works. She was not counting on falling for the stubborn guy. 

There is nothing like reading a romance where all the characters have something to contribute. The Kincaid siblings are all well-developed characters. 
Hudson could be stubborn, but he did listen to his family when he was making a mistake. 
Bailey was sweet. She had no time to sugarcoat her feelings and she was ready to give them a chance. 
Reading My Kind of Wonderful has only intrigued me into finding out about the mysterious Jacob. I can't wait for his book.

Start from the beginning with book one in the Cedar Ridge series, SECOND CHANCE SUMMER! 

Cedar Ridge, Colorado, is famous for crisp mountain air, clear blue skies, and pine-scented breezes. And it's the last place Lily Danville wants to be. But she needs a job, and there's an opening at the hottest resort in her hometown. What has her concerned is the other hot property in Cedar Ridge: Aidan Kincaid—firefighter, rescue worker, and heartbreaker. She never could resist that devastating smile . . .

The Kincaid brothers are as rough and rugged as the Rocky Mountains they call home. Aidan has always done things his own way, by his own rules. And never has he regretted anything more than letting Lily walk out of his life ten years ago. If anyone has ever been in need of rescuing, she has. What she needs more than anything are long hikes, slow dances, and sizzling kisses. But that can only happen if he can get her to give Cedar Ridge-and this bad boy-a second chance . . .
