Book Review : On Second Thought

Kristan Higgins is fast becoming a favourite author of mine in a genre I often do not enjoy – a touch of romance, even if contemporary.

With two divorces behind me, I know all that glitter isn’t gold and that loneliness can make for strange bedfellows.

I do believe and experience love, lust and the lingering of romance but… I stick to reading/listening to psychological thrillers, detectives working on the puzzles of murders and I adore memoirs.

Back to my review.

A touching read of a woman losing her husband after a short marriage, the insecurities that come with grief as well as being a second wife.

A sister in love with the idea of love publically humiliating by the man she put on a pedestal. The adventure of finding her way back to herself. Realising you can’t pour from an empty jar.

I enjoyed the read immensely.

Narration by Xe Sands is always a treat. Amy Rubinate integrated beautifully. The story was deliciously unpredictable, characters well developed.

This book is a cupcake with ample frosting…. and I love cake.
