Book Review | The Forever Family by Shirley Jump

Tuesday, January 17, 2023

*I was gifted this book by Forever. All opinions are my own.*

SummaryThe youngest of the three close-knit sisters, Emma Monroe is the family wild child. She’s never stayed with anything — job, apartment, boyfriend — for long, and she likes it that way. Except lately, her freedom has seemed less like a gift and more like a burden. Maybe that’s why a yoga retreat in Las Vegas leads to a spur-of-the-moment decision to marry Luke Carter, a man she’s met exactly three times.

The next morning, instead of facing Luke, Emma sneaks back home to Harbor Cove, where she should have nama-stayed in the first place. Still, it shouldn’t be difficult to annul their hours-long marriage. Except Emma’s brand-new husband arrives in town to convince her to give their marriage a chance. With the support of her family, can Emma envision a future where her biggest adventures come not from running away but from staying… and risking it all on love?

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 1/2

My Thoughts: I absolutely loved Luke and Emma. They were cute and I enjoyed the slow build of their relationship and falling in love.

The accidental marriage was interesting because it wasn’t so much an accident, at least on Luke’s part. Luke has a troubled daughter that Emma helps, and I did enjoy that character building for both Emma and Luke’s daughter.

I absolutely hated Emma’s sister, Margaret. She is extremely toxic and treats Emma like crap.

This is the second book in the series, but you don’t need to read the first.
