A perfect summer beach read! The characters are delightfully imperfect humans who have mishaps and misunderstandings on the way to their happily ever afters. There are also great scenes of small town life and visits with characters from Higgins' other books. James has been interested in Parker for a long time, but usually she won't even give him the time of day. Then when her world is turned upside down she doesn't have much of a choice but to accept his help. Slowly she realizes he is a great guy, but there are a few more bumps in the road before they're on the same page at the same time.
Another Kristan Higgins book that was sweet, sassy and full of life. The reader meets Parker Welles a single mom who is in an interesting situation. The father of her child is married to her best friend and the three of them make a great support system to raise the sweetest little boy - Nicky. A devastating blow to Parker's lifestyle happens and her world is immediately changed and it takes a village to help her get back on her feet.
Although these books can seem to be predictable, they have heart and romance which are just the right ingredients for a sweet summer romance. I love the ease of reading with all of Kristan Higgins books, sometimes its not only the plot that makes a book, but the way a book is written. As well, Kristan Higgins' characters are always easy to connect with, so the story can quickly grow around such great characters.
I would recommend all readers to pick up this book and take it to a pool or to the beach. It was easy to get into this one and the story didn't lull at all, I was swept into the story the entire time.
