SOMEBODY TO LOVE
After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon’s Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns—a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father’s wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she’s not thrilled…even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox.
Having to fend for herself for the first time in her life, Parker signs on as a florist’s assistant and starts to find out who she really is. Maybe James isn’t the glib lawyer she always thought he was. And maybe the house isn’t the only thing that needs a little TLC…
Included in Best Fiction, 2012, Kirkus Reviews
Kristan Higgins specializes in the kind of prose that makes you laugh out loud…hilarious on the surface, but with a bittersweet subtext: Somebody to Love is about falling in love, but also about betrayal and second chances. Nobody's perfect in this novel, but they are all…lovable in one way or another. And love, generously given, turns out to be remarkably redemptive. —National Public Radio
Strong storytelling and a refreshing, sarcastic edge...unfolds with genuine emotion. Thoroughly entertaining.
Higgins has another winner with this delightful romance.—Romantic Times
Romance fans and lovers of women’s fiction will devour this witty and tender novel. Highly recommended. —Library Journal, starred review
