Summary
Following the success of IF YOU ONLY KNEW and ON SECOND THOUGHT comes the highly anticipated new novel by New York Times bestselling author Higgins; a funny and bittersweet story of a woman who returns to her hometown after a decade's absence hoping to resuscitate her relationship with her family, only to discover that her homecoming is not as welcome as she had imagined. It's been over a decade since Nora left her hometown of Scupper Island, Maine, and very seldom looked back. She's carved out a successful life in Boston where no one knows her as the awkward girl with the delinquent sister and the dad who left, but a not-as-dramatic-as-it-sounds brush with death has her taking stock of her life. Inspired to reconnect with her prickly mother and snarky teenage niece, Nora returns home for the summer, where she's forced to face the people she's spent the last ten years trying to avoid, and where some revelations about her family could either heal her, or send her scrambling back to Boston on the next ferry.

As a medical professional in Boston and a very avid Harry Potter fan, this book just spoke to me! The narrator was absolutely fantastic, I don’t think I’ve ever literally laughed out loud listening to a book. Loved the storyline and am excited to read others by Higgans and listen to Sands!

Xe Sanders is a fantastic narrator. I totally cried during THE phone call, because of HOW she made a connection between the situation and the sister in me. Kristan Higgins, thank you for making a love story that covered all the facets of love; between lovers, sisters, parents and kids, friends… great work.

This is not my usual type of story. But I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was great as were the characters. I'm a sucker for the outcast kid who overcomes.

If the author had stuck with the original story line this could have been a good book.

Decent book. I know Xe Sands is a very popular reader. But her style on trailing off a lot, making everything sound like an afterthought or whiny, is very distracting to me. I know this is not shared by most listeners.

Great story. But the narrator made the book. She did such a good job of conveying the characters emotions and personalities. I’ll be looking for more books that are narrated by her.

This was a pretty good listen. The authors constant use of figurative language was too much. It was like she was trying to be a big grown-up author. Tries too hard. Also her using the term “girl parts” over and over was well, stupid. Lastly are we supposed to believe that the main character was hit by a car and also was attempted to be raped and murdered? come on.
