What makes life sweet?
Freshly baked breadA cool lake on a hot summer dayThe comfort of a cozy bookstoreSecond chances and new beginnings

When Harper Shaw’s life falls apart, she knows it’s time for a change. She removes everything that doesn’t spark joy—from her soul-sucking job to eating kale to making lists—and sets off for the last place she was happy, Lake Tahoe (who wouldn’t feel good there, right?) to fulfill her dream of opening her own bakery.

With her Sugar Pine Bakery in between a tavern, owned by sexy, grumpy Bodie Campbell, and a bookstore, run by her new BFF, she feels a peace she’s never experienced since…well, forever.. Then she meets Ivy, a teenage runaway, who barrels into her heart. She sees a lot of herself in Ivy and takes her under her wing, but the teenager has secrets…

When those secrets explode, it changes Harper’s new world, and she’ll learn, it’s never too late to start over, it’s never too late to figure out your life, and best of all, it’s never too late to let yourself believe in love.


  • Awesome Book

    By JenniferMitch75
    The Sweetheart List is book 4 in the Sunrise Cove books by Jill. These books are great because they are all stand alone but once you read one you will definitely want to read the rest. Harper’s story is very heartwarming and pulls you right in and I couldn’t put it down. Great Job Jill on another great book!!

    I loved this book! Right from the beginning you knew it would be good. The characters jump out at you and you can’t wait to find out how they all come together! Jill Shalvis is truly great at capturing my attention with humor and characters that seem so real you just want to find them and hang out! With the Sweetheart List it was love at first sight, just like with Harper and Bodie!! Enjoy!!
  • Harper ❤️ Bodie

    By Newberryd
    Beautifully written story about finding joy, opening your heart to love, and being a part of a loving family. Nothing and no one is perfect, it’s being human. Kindness and honesty are necessary to build positive relationships. Family is helping each other overcome adversity and having forgiveness for each others mistakes. Another wonderful Sunrise Cove story.

    I’m pretty sure that I’ve read every book that Ms Shalvis has written and I think that this is one of her best! Every character that you meet are ones that you would love to meet. I loved Harper and Bodie as a couple but, also, as individuals. The whole Campbell family, including Ivy, are people that you would love to meet and have in your life. Not that everyone had their issues, especially with trust. Some were distrustful of others, while some were distrustful of their own issues. The only problem was that this book was hard to put down and over way too soon! You can never go wrong with anything by Ms Shalvis and this would be an outstanding read for both a new and returning reader.
  • Delightfully sweet

    By ledoss
    Delightfully sweet and fun romance. This is my first read by this author, so refreshing. A quick, easy and light read. Harper, Brodie and all the characters add a touch of humor even when the story gets intensely personal. Enjoyed this book, do not miss this one.
  • Exceptional read!

    By Grinandstampit
    The Sweetheart List is a story filled with so many relationships: sibling, parental romantic and with the past. Jill Shalvis has written an exceptional book featuring all. I fell in love with the Campbell Family and the special bond between the siblings and their mother. Bodie is the second oldest son and has recently experienced some life altering events which have brought him back home. Harper come to the Tahoe area to start over. It is the last place she ever felt happy. Ivy is a run away that shows up in the area and survives with Harper’s help. The journey of their lives converge into a beautiful story in Sunrise Cove. I read this captivating story straight through. Just couldn’t put it down. A must read from this 5 star author!
