New Release Review! NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT by Kristan Higgins

Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins Synopsis: 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…

New Release Review! ON SECOND THOUGHT by Kristan Higgins

On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins Synopsis: 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 being blindsided by a breakup he chronicles in a blog…which (of course) goes viral. Devastated and humiliated, Ainsley turns to her older half sister, Kate, who’s struggling with a sudden loss of her own. Kate’s always been the poised, self-assured sister, but becoming a newlywed—and a widow—in the space of four months overwhelms her. Though the sisters were never close, she starts to confide in Ainsley, especially when she learns…

Saturday Morning Video: How Kristan Higgins Met McIrish (Bonus clip from LOVE BETWEEN THE COVERS)

Very reminiscent of the in-between bits from When Harry Met Sally… LBTC Bonus Clip – Kristan Higgins – How I met my husband from Laurie Kahn on Vimeo. OMG, so cute! I almost expected her to say, “At that moment, I knew. I knew the way you know about a good melon.” 😉 If you missed it, check out the trailer for Love Between the Covers here. It’s definitely a must-see video, if you love romance!

New Release Review: IF YOU ONLY KNEW by Kristan Higgins

If You Only Knew by Kristan Higgins Blurb: Sisterhood in all its drama, hilarity and tears is at the heart of New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins’s thoroughly captivating new novel, featuring the wit and romance that readers have come to expect from the much-loved creator of the Blue Heron series… Wedding-dress designer Jenny Tate understands the happily-ever-after business, yet somehow she’s still involved in her ex-husband’s life. In fact, Owen’s new wife may—inexplicably—be Jenny’s new best friend.

What to read, what to read… (with a flowchart!)

         I found this graphic while procrastinating grading my final exams checking my email yesterday–too cute not to share! But seriously–no one reading this is going to limit themselves to just ONE romance hero this summer, right? Because that would be so, so wrong….   (Clicking on the graphic will take you to the HQN site, where you can read synopses of each book pictured.) I have already read Waiting on You by Kristan Higgins–loved it; I think it’s my favorite of her Blue Heron series so far. I’ve only held off reading Katie McGarry’s Take Me On because I’m hoping…

This is No Time to Panic! (Or is it the perfect time to panic? A Week in Review 11-22-13)

Maybe even six days too long. My weekend is pretty booked up too–don’t people understand I have to write? I’m on deadline here! And woefully behind! Oh, and my laptop officially died. I’m fairly certain the repair shop I took it to (and will never visit again, obviously) had a hand in it, though they deny it. Hey, guys–it was working fine when it came in, except for the crack in the screen. You “fix” the screen and suddenly it won’t turn on? The power button becomes permanently stuck down? The plastic protecting the hinge cracks off? Um, none of…

What I’m Reading: Week in Review (11-3-13)

  My keyboard is on fire this first weekend of NaNoWriMo, I tell you! Okay, maybe not exactly on fire. Unless when you look to the left of this panel you see a really big number in my NaNo widget. Then you’ll know I had a really productive afternoon here. I can dream, right? I tried to get as much reading in as possible before November 1st hit, which explained why I spent most of day one figuring out how to use Aeon Timeline for the first time and remembering how to use Scrivener again. On the plus side, I found out…

What I’m Reading: A Week in Review as NaNoWriMo Approacheth…. (10-26-13)

Mini Moe #2 and I are headed over the border today–to the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-Lake to see Our Betters by W. Somerset Maugham. It’s kind of last minute–a friend had extra tickets. Their website says it’s similar to Downton Abbey, which we’ve both watched and liked…well, MM#2 liked it until she saw the season finale last year. Since then she’s been a little bitter; hopefully nothing like that will happen this afternoon. It’s recommended for ages 14 and up–fingers crossed that I won’t have to spend too much time covering her eyes. NaNoWriMo begins this Friday! Don’t worry–still plenty of time to…
