“Higgins also has some sweet messages laced within. To me, those are the things that matter. Even though you think life has thrown you a curve ball, you can still manage to hit that home run, even if it just happens in a different way. I love that about Kristan Higgins’ books.”

I was recently in a reading slump so I decided to go back and look at what books I’ve recently loved from an author. One I’ve read earlier this year, My One and Only, is still at the top of my favorite lists so I figured I should try another Higgins book. And since this title received a RITA, I knew I had to give it a shot.

Higgins trademark humor is front and center in this novel. Maggie falls in love with a man who walks into her diner but it all comes crashing down to a halt when she realizes he is a priest. As Maddie trundles on, she doesn’t think another guy will ever compare to the sexy Irishman.

Maggie’s personality is big and bright in this book. She has loads of personality and I think that’s what makes this book so relatable. I loved the fact that this book was written in first person because it allows readers to really get into Maggie’s head. It’s a nice release from being in your own head all the time.

It also works well when Malone enters the picture because he’s actually everything Maggie isn’t. They are total opposites but I just adored how Malone handled Maggie and her wayward ways. Their time together is just so fun to read.

The only complaint I have is that because of quietness, we didn’t really get to see Malone as much as I wanted. He definitely fits that mysterious vibe throughout the entire book, never giving too much. On the flipside, as a reader, you are really able to put your own preferences in him and make him that hero that YOU love so I liked what Higgins did there.

Above it all, Higgins also has some sweet messages laced within. To me, those are the things that matter. Even though you think life has thrown you a curve ball, you can still manage to hit that home run, even if it just happens in a different way. I love that about Kristan Higgins’ books.
