My new favorite Kristan Higgins book. A story about a girl who has avoided love afer an intense break up and divorce. At first I didn't understand her apprehension towards love and commitment but as the story slowly unfolded - which I loved, I was able to completely understand her story and why she was the way she was.

I loved the unfolding love triangle and really wasn't sure where our main character would end up - which I love. Sometimes my favorite part of a book is when I guess wrong! I flipped and flopped back and forth as to which guy I thought may work better for her. I am still not sure if I like the road she chose, but I was glad that I didn't know too far ahead of time.

The ease of reading made me rate it as a perfect beach read - I was on my way to Vegas for a work trip and it was the perfect companion while travelling. Definitely a read for an audience of ladies!

This is a really good book! It made me laugh, cry, sigh, worry... I loved it and read it almost non-stop from cover to cover. The road trip the couple takes together is great- to me it's the best part of the book.

The heroine Harper is deliciously snarky, almost too much in the beginning, causing me to dislike her for about the first 50 pages or so. Then suddenly, her heart starts spilling out over the pages, and you can't help but love her. There are a few "head-slap" moments where she makes choices I definitely wouldn't have, but as is typical with a Kristan Higgins book, the happy ending came along, tied up the loose ends, and left me smiling. I definitely enjoyed it.

Kristan Higgins continues to improve as an author with her latest. I like her books more and more each year. This one is a bit different from her previous ones. It features a couple of exes on a road trip for most of the book. While I found the beginning a little slow, it really picked up when Nick and Harper met up again. They have a great chemistry between them that is seen in their great banter. While we never get to read Nick's thoughts or point of view, it really came across that he still cared about her. Throughout the book, the reader sees the development of their relationship in college, their marriage at a young age, their divorce, and their reconcilation. The reconcilation takes most of the book, but they both must deal with their own issues (her abandonment issues and his work-a-holic and control issues)but they both emerge better people, willing to make changes in their lives in order to be with the one person they each realize is their true love. My only tiny complaint is about the cover. I was born and raised in New York state, and I can assure you that the license plate featured on the car hasn't been used in a good 15 years or more. To conclude, a great read and the best of the author so far.

Another winner from Kristan. I have read enough of her books that now I feel like I am on a first name basis with her! Harper is a divorce attorney thrown into an uncomfortable situation with her ex-husband Nick when her younger sister becomes engaged to Nick's brother. The wedding in Montana leaves Harper stranded and Nick offers to drive her to the next airport. Lots of shared memories start to shatter Harper's icy exterior. A side trip to meet the mother she hasn't seen since she was a teen is heart wrenching. The scene when Harper decides to throw her cautions to the wind is wonderful! 4 stars!

This was another good story by Ms Higgins. I really didn't like the heroine much at all until the end. Then I understood why she was like that and it all made sense to me. The romance was nice, the fun parts were good, and the characters were believable, but I felt it needed more from the supporting characters. (However, I did love BeverLee!) I recommend this book for some summer reading.
