Review: The Next Best Thing by Kristan Higgins

Wow! It was so windy last night, I'm surprised there was still a roof over my head when I woke up this morning! I hate it when we have such strong winds, it's just scary :( Snowstorms, thunderstorms, I don't mind... but strong winds...

It's almost the end of the Vancouver Olympics Games - only 3 days left :( I'm sad. I don't know what I'm going to do after it or actually, what I'm going to watch. Lucky for me, the Tim Horton's Briers is starting on March 6 :P Oh, and I still need to go watch the Percy Jackson movie...

Meanwhile, this week-end, I'm going to be reading, watching the Olympics and helping a friend paint her new condo. Should be fun :) What about you, any plans?

Oh, by the way, I have a review up at Breezing Through :P Ames and I discussed The Next Best Thing by Kristan Higgins. I really like Ms Higgins's style, unfortunately, this book didn't totally work out for me. Still, I'm looking forward to her next release :) For more details about my thoughts, you can go here.


The Next Best Thing by Kristan Higgins
published by HQN Books in February 2010


Lucy Lang isn't looking for fireworks...

She's looking for a nice, decent man. Someone who'll mow the lawn, flip chicken on the barbeque, teach their future children to play soccer. But most important... someone who won't inspire the slightest stirring in her heart...or anywhere else. A young widow, Lucy can't risk that kind of loss again. But sharing her life with a cat named Fat Mikey and the Black Widows at the family bakery isn't enough either. So it's goodbye to Ethan, her hot but entirely inappropriate "friend with privileges" and hello to a man she can marry.

Too bad Ethan Mirabelli isn't going anywhere. As far as he's concerned, what she needs might be right under her nose. But can he convince her that the next best thing can really be forever?

  2. Rosie Sounds like a busy week-end :) how did you do? I know you finished at least one of the Julie James :D Although I haven't seen any lists yet... :P

    Nope, her condo is quite easy to paint... except that she has a popcorn ceiling... ugh, I didn't know they still made them!
