Book Review: Jill Shalvis’ “Wrapped in You”

A free short story revolving around love and See’s chocolates. Yum. My Take A sweet assessment of the mistakes Hannah has made, as she stands in line at See’s and learns an important lesson about relationships. She’s always right. So pay attention, guys, we ladies are always right *grin*. Be warned you may need to visit your closest chocolates shoppe! Right after you kiss your honey! The Story It’s been a horrible three weeks. Ever since Hannah broke off her engagement to Gavin. Three weeks in which she’s tossed and turned, longed for, and cried over Gavin. The Characters Hannah is an ER nurse who dumped her fiancé Gavin three weeks ago. Her mother is a maternity nurse at the same hospital as Hannah. Gavin creates handcrafted wood furniture for Reclaimed Woods, an upscale shop in the Cow Hollow district of San Francisco. He’s one of the city’s Artists on the Rise this year. The Title The title is a play on both See’s Candies and love when one becomes “Wrapped in You”.
