Kristan Higgin’s latest book, My One and Only, made for the perfect escape reading this weekend. The story, about a divorced couple forced to spend time together offered some laughs, a couple of tears (I’m a sap) and my favorite kind of ending to a book… happy ever after.
Harper is in her 30s with a successful career as a divorce attorney on Martha’s Vineyard and a (hot) firefighter boyfriend of 2 1/2 years. She’s wants to settle down and have kids and decides now is the time. So she proposes to her boyfriend who isn’t exactly jumping for joy at the idea. Complicating matters she finds out (in the middle of her proposal) that her younger, irresponsible sister is engaged to a man she’s know for only a short period of time. They are getting married in Montana in 2 weeks. And worse yet, the fiance, is Harper’s ex-husband’s brother. (AWKWARD.) Harper is less than thrilled and concerned about her sister. This is her 3rd wedding, they haven’t know it each other for long and Harper has a pretty jaded view of marriage because of her career. But she loves her sister so off to Montana she goes.

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.
Kristan Higgins is one of my favorite contemporary romance writers. She’s another author I stumbled into reading due to my kindle. (Thank you samples!) I devoured her books. They usually keep me up late because they are just too good to put down.
But after reading The Next Best Thing I was a little worried. The book fell flat of my expectations and I was disappointed. But last year she bounced back with All I Ever Wanted and my fears were put to rest. I’m looking forward to her latest, My One and Only due out March 29th.
Just when she thought she had life and love all figured out…
Divorce attorney Harper James can’t catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister’s destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she’s being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancé back at home is not likely to be sympathetic.
Harper can’t help that Nick has come blazing back into her life in all of his frustratingly appealing, gorgeous architect glory. But in Nick’s eyes, Harper’s always been the one. If they can only get it right this time, forever might be waiting—just around the bend.
So what are looking looking forward to reading? What else should I add to my wishlist?
