On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins

Paperback, 480 pages
Expected publication: January 31st 2017 by HQN Books
Following in the footsteps of her critically acclaimed novel If You Only Knew , multi-bestselling author Kristan Higgins returns with a pitch-perfect look at the affection—and the acrimony—that binds sisters together 

Ainsley O'Leary is so ready to get married—she's even found the engagement ring her boyfriend has stashed away. What she doesn't anticipate is for Eric to blindside her with a tactless breakup he chronicles in a blog…which (of course) goes viral. Devastated and humiliated, Ainsley turns to her half sister, Kate, who's already struggling after the sudden loss of her new husband.

Kate has always been so poised, so self-assured, but Nathan's death shatters everything she thought she knew—including her husband—and sometimes the people who step up aren't the ones you expect. With seven years and a murky blended-family dynamic between them, Ainsley and Kate have never been overly close, but their shared sorrow dovetails their faltering worlds into one.

Despite the lifetime of history between them, the sisters must learn to put their differences aside and open their hearts to the inevitable imperfection of family—and the possibility of one day finding love again.

My Thoughts…

It’s official… I am a Kristin Higgins fan.     She is now a must read author for me.     I loved everything about this book.   I started it in the early afternoon and stayed up half the night having to read it.    Even when I woke up I was still thinking about the story and the characters.   Her first book, If You Only Knew, blew me away.    Now she follows it up with another amazing standalone of On Second Thought.  

The family dynamics and the friendships stick out to me.     The relationships, the friendships are so real.    They are not easy, fun, and no worry relationships.   They are tough, flawed, and need work to make them be successful.      There are families, friends, lovers, husbands, and in-laws to be dealt with.    Even the characters that you didn’t really like you understood and appreciate the impact that they made on the others in this story.      

If you are looking for a emotional, sometimes humorous story I recommend getting your own copy of On Second Thought.      It has everything I love.    Romance, friendships, and family.
