Though the sisters were never close, she starts to confide in Ainsley, especially when she learns her late husband was keeping a secret from her.
Despite the murky blended-family dynamic that's always separated them, Ainsley's and Kate's heartaches bind their summer together when they come to terms with the inevitable imperfection of relationships and family—and the possibility of one day finding love again.
There’s a reason why Kristan Higgins is a New York Times bestselling author. Actually there’s about a million of them. But here are a few that are abundantly clear to me after reading On Second Thought:
Long-story-short, if you’re a Kristan Higgins fan, you’ve probably already pre-ordered this book. Like always, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re not a fan, pick this one up. Give the author a chance. You won’t be disappointed, either. I won’t say anything else, lest I lapse into childish fangirling and squealing. Can’t have that happen. I have a reputation to uphold.
Full disclosure: the publisher generously provided a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
Does this book contribute to or help crush the romance stigma?
Crushes it! This one is clean and sober. No rehab needed.
