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…
Fun fact: The doggy in this book is based on my sweet and neurotic mutt, Willow.

Kristan Higgins specializes in the kind of prose that makes you laugh out loud…hilarious on the surface, with a bittersweet subtext: Somebody to Loveis about falling in love, also about betrayal and second chances. Nobody's perfect in this novel, they are all…lovable in one way or another. And love, generously given, turns out to be remarkably redemptive.
