My One and Only. Finished 4-25-20, 4/5 stars, romance, 379 pages, pub. 2011
Divorce attorney Harper James can’t catch a break. Bad enough that she runs into her ex-hubby, Nick, at her sister’s destination wedding, but now, by a cruel twist of fate, she’s being forced to make a cross-country road trip with him. And her almost-fiancé back at home is not likely to be sympathetic.
Harper can’t help that Nick has come blazing back into her life in all of his frustratingly appealing, gorgeous architect glory. But in Nick’s eyes, Harper’s always been the one. If they can only get it right this time, forever might be waiting—just around the bend. from Goodreads
Harper has a hunky boyfriend, a coveted house overlooking the beach, and a successful career as a divorce attorney. Just as she’s trying to propose to hunky boyfriend her step sister calls with the news that she’s marrying Harper’s ex-husband’s brother. Hunky boyfriend comes in handy in these situations as they head to Montana for the wedding that Harper hopes doesn’t take place.
This is not your normal romance. Yes, there’s first love never forgotten, regret and steamy scenes, but there is also heartbreak, divorce, strange family ties and a hero and heroine not quite like the others. I didn’t care for Harper for awhile and my issues with ex-hubby Nick remained, BUT the book had its charm and the last few chapters were top-notch. I like the way that Higgins dealt with the parents and their issues in this book. For me, that where the heart was.
Higgins, as always, entertains while touching your heart.
