THE NEXT BEST THING
Lucy Lang isn't looking for fireworks...
She's looking for a nice, decent man. Someone who'll mow the lawn, flip chicken on the barbeque, teach their future children to play soccer. But most important... someone who won't inspire the slightest stirring in her heart...or anywhere else. A young widow, Lucy can't risk that kind of loss again. But sharing her life with a cat named Fat Mikey and the Black Widows at the family bakery isn't enough either. So it's goodbye to Ethan, her hot but entirely inappropriate "friend with privileges" and hello to a man she can marry.
Too bad Ethan Mirabelli isn't going anywhere. As far as he's concerned, what she needs might be right under her nose. But can he convince her that the next best thing can really be forever?

“The Next Best Thing was so much more than I could have hoped for…Filled with heart, heartbreak, family, loss and love, Higgins shows women of all ages yet again that life, love and happiness have to be gained from within before we can truly appreciate them.”
The Next Best Thing is certainly not one to miss…It made me remember why I love contemporary romance and why there should be more of them.
