New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins welcomes you home in a funny, emotionally charged must-read novel about the complications of life, love and family One step forward. Two steps back. The Tufts scholarship that put Nora Stuart on the path to becoming a Boston medical specialist was a step forward. Being hit by a car and then overhearing her boyfriend hit on another doctor when she thought she was dying? Two major steps back. Injured in more ways than one, Nora feels her carefully built life cracking at the edges. There's only one place to land: home. But the tiny Maine community she left fifteen years ago doesn't necessarily want her. At every turn, someone holds the prodigal daughter of Scupper Island responsible for small-town drama and big-time disappointments. With a tough islander mother who's always been distant and a wild-child sister in jail, unable to raise her daughtera withdrawn teen as eager to ditch the island as Nora once wasNora has her work cut out for her if she's going to take what might be her last chance to mend the family. But as some relationships crumble around her, others unexpectedly strengthen. Balancing loss and opportunity, a dark event from her past with hope for the future, Nora will discover that tackling old pain makes room for promiseand the chance to begin again.

Truly some laugh out loud moments with great characters in a dreamy east coast setting. There was bit of crude and immature banter a couple of times, and I really dislike the overuse of endearments - if I‘d had to read “sweetheart,” “honey,” or “sweetie” just one more time...

Altogether a fun read though. And Harry Potter fans will love the many references to the series.

I don‘t usually laugh out loud at events in fiction. There has to be a level of reality with believable characters. The gathering referenced in this quote made me gasp, and literally LOL. I don‘t want to adult today, I just want to keep reading this!

Diversion from her normal fare and it works. Again, easy read but with a bit more oomph.

Bostonmomx2 @DianeDeMasi except for her current release, she‘s got several other stand alones that I really enjoyed. Sophie Kinsella “I‘ve got your number” I remember being quite good as well. 1y

Nora goes home to an island in Maine after many years away & tries to reconnect with her mom, sister & niece along with herself. I really loved it & had recommended to friend. But then there was bad event with an animal that wasn‘t necessary & I had revoke rec because she is a huge animal lover. I still liked it but it is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ when it could have been 5.

rubyslippersreads Thanks for the warning; I don't like anything unpleasant involving animals. 😕 2y

For some reason I have always thought KH was a fluffy, chick lit type of author. Not so much. I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would and will be definitely reading many more of her books.

Meatballs and a book. It‘s so freezing cold here with snow on the ground so a nice warm dinner is what I need.
This book is so much better than I was anticipating and I don‘t think it‘ll be my last by her.

Mehso-so

Another book that's getting rave reviews that I only felt lukewarm about. This book was okay, but it had a tonality problem I just couldn't get past. I didn't always know where it was going next and whether I should laugh, cry, or be scared. Sure, a lot of stories skip around with emotions, but somehow with this one it just didn't work. The main character was fine, but the nagging negativity of nearly everyone around her started to be too much.

I loved this book so much. It gave me warm fuzzies on those arctic days at the beginning of the month. I love Higgins female leads, they are always smart women who find love but don‘t sacrifice for it, they are just enriched by it. Above is my favorite moment Harry Potter innuendos!

I love Higgins‘ books, they are comfort reads for me. This one was no exception, although there was an assault, so trigger ⚠️ warning.

A captivating story about love and loss, letting go of the past and starting over. And over again. A story of family and friendships. A bit of romance, a dash of Mystery, and a healthy dose of humor along the way makes this a page-turner! #BrendaNovakBookGroup January book 😊

First book of 2018 was excellent. Higgins is an automatic buy. This story is about understanding ourselves and others. There is a lovely romance, but the story is about family and friendship.

I love Kristan Higgins books, and I‘ve enjoyed the more women‘s fiction direction her latest books have taken. While this heroine did have some trauma in her past, this is definitely more in the uplifting, happy category than serious. There‘s also a seriously hilarious dinner party gone wrong 😂

Often at times this appeared to be your standard chick-lit; romance mixed with some family drama but there was another element to the story that I thoroughly enjoyed and that was the drama and suspense of Nora‘s near fatal attack and the effects it had on her life. I would love for this to become a series from the author and would devour it as I have this novel.
