    Awesome

    An awesome read! Holly Partridge has been taking care of her sisters for as long as she can remember. Now with her sister off her meds and missing, Holly finds herself facing the one man she never wanted to see again. Josh Hunter has a reputation. One he's earned in the past but is trying to change. But when Holly Partridge comes barreling back into Willow Park and Josh's life, that's not the easiest thing to do. This is a wonderful story of the stresses of caring for your family and the effects that responsibility can have on the rest of your life. I would definitely recommend this one!

    Heart-warming Romance

    A heart-warming romance rich with meaningful situations and real world emotion. Nobody’s Fool is the second installment in Sarah Hegger’s Willow Park series and it was just as powerful as the first, Nobody’s Angel. As with the first in the series, Nobody’s Fool features difficult, real world issues not commonly tackled in the romance genre and does it with so much heart and emotion you cannot help but find yourself deeply enmeshed in the story. Each character is extremely well developed, so much so that many of their struggles resonated with me at a very personal level. And the romance…I just loved the way Josh and Holly’s story developed. The sass and sharp banter at first, the gradual shift into mutual respect, and the fight to overcome obstacles in the end. It was beautiful, particularly the way Josh fought for and believed in Holly, even when she couldn’t believe in herself. If you favor stories with depth and heart-touching emotion, both installments from the Willow Park series should be on your TBR. I can’t wait to see what Sarah does with her next release, Nobody’s Princess.

    A Complicated Romance

    I enjoyed this complicated romance. There really was a whole lot of story packed into this novel. I really do like the fact that this series isn't afraid to touch upon difficult subjects, including mental illness in this book. I do wish that the story focused on the romance between Holly and Josh a bit more than it did. This book really felt like it was more about Holly's family issues than anything else but I did enjoy the overall story. Holly is the oldest of four sisters and has always held the role of protector. In fact she has almost raised her two youngest sisters, Portia and Emma, along with help from her sister, Grace. When Portia disappears from their home in London, Canada, Holly goes to Chicago to find her. Portia is mentally ill and has not been taking her medication so Holly has a lot to worry about and only one clue....Josh. Josh is attractive and he knows it. He tries hard to be a good person and not take advantage of anyone. When he runs into Holly, he is shocked and is quickly pulled into her quest to find her sister. The pair soon develop feelings for each other but Holly isn't sure that she can fit a relationship into her life along with all the responsibilities that she has in caring for her sisters. I really liked the story and all of the characters but felt that the romance took a back seat to the drama involving Holly's sisters. At times, Holly's sisters seemed like stronger characters than Holly since their needs really took over the book. I really wanted more romance in this story. I didn't feel the chemistry between Josh and Holly that I had hoped for. I actually think that the pair were more interesting before they found Holly's sister. Of course, they never seemed to be alone together after that happened. As each sister appeared on the page, the chemistry seemed to weaken. I wanted their actions to show what they felt for each other instead of needing to be told. I did enjoy reading this book quite a bit. This is the second book in the Willow Park series but it can definitely be read as a stand alone novel. The only thing that this book shares with the first is the setting and a few of the characters. I didn't enjoy this book quite as much as the first book in the series but it was certainly a worthwhile read. I would recommend this book and found it to be a very easy to read and entertaining story. I plan to continue reading this series and look forward to other works by Sarah Hegger. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Kensington Books - Zebra via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    You'd be a fool not to buy it

    I love this story, it's book two of the Willow Park series but can easily be read as a stand-alone novel. Holly is so believable you can imagine her small but fiery frame, her accent amusing but accurate. Josh is a study of reality that no book is only it's cover, since he's not the shallow pretty boy womanizing dog most think from his looks. Portia made me want to reach in the pages and smack her. The author portrays very well how despite being adults, the twins act like spilled petulant children at times. The symptomology of Portia illness is fairly well done. A great book by a great author. #I was given an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion#

    More about family than romance

    When her younger sister disappears without her medication, Holly drops everything to find her and bring her back home. But her only real clues are the town to which she hoped never to return and the boy she couldn't stand back in school. The one-time bad boy has a chivalrous side, and as Holly finds herself leaning on him more and more, those negative feelings she once harbored spin in the other direction and have her longing for a relationship she's not sure her life can sustain. It's up to Josh to show her that she's not alone and that she deserves to have something wonderful for herself. But... *Sigh* Just once could a bipolar character not be batshit crazy? Yes, I know it's a serious illness, and I know how important medication can be, and I know all about the psychotic breaks and the manic episodes and the feeling like the world is ending. I know because I'm bipolar. But I also know what it's like to remain functional and productive and independent without medication, and just once I wish fiction would portray that side of being a little bit nuts. Seriously, despite what television and movies and books portray, we're not all completely unhinged. The Verdict: Holly's life seems to have been a series of sacrifices. It started when she and Grace, the oldest of four sisters, did their best to hide their mother's mental illness from the younger twins, and even though their mother died years ago, it's never really stopped. All this time later, Holly is still trying to protect her sisters, at the expense of having a life of her own, and now that Portia has run off in the midst of a bipolar episode that's frighteningly reminiscent of their late mother's behavior, Holly finds herself dropping everything to go after her. The sisters' dynamic is disturbing, to be honest. Grace got married and bailed on them, leaving Holly to deal with everything on her own. Portia is bipolar and prone to going off her meds, and Emma is far too dependent and immature to handle anything responsibly. Their mother (also bipolar) died years ago, and their father is too proud and ashamed to admit that anything has ever been wrong, so he's essentially out of the picture. How Holly has maintained any sanity is beyond me. Portia's latest unmedicated adventure has her striking out for the town in which the girls once lived, though Holly can't figure out why she was drawn there. Whatever the reason, she knows she needs to find Portia before she winds up hurt or in the grip of a full psychotic break, so even though it's the last place she wants to be, Holly heads off to find her. But her awful luck continues when her car and all her belongings are stolen and she has no one else to turn to except the now-grown boy she hated in school. While Josh certainly doesn't understand everything that's happening or why Holly seems to be holding such a strong grudge, he's surprisingly chivalrous and pretty much insists on helping her — despite all the resistance she throws his way. And while Holly is loathe to admit it, the more time she spends with Josh, especially since he's doing so much to help her, the more she finds herself liking him. Though there is a strong romantic theme to the story, Nobody's Fool isn't all fluffy reconnections and heading into the happily ever after. Holly's situation is a mess, and Portia's apparent disconnect from reality makes things even more difficult for them all, especially on the romantic front. Josh is always at Holly's side, doing whatever he can to help and support her, but the story is heavily focused on the girls' journey to understand their past and Holly's need to give up some of the burden she's been carrying. It's a sobering look at the effects mental illness have on not just the individual but the entire family, and though it's a very slow, often discouraging journey, that happily ever after finally comes through. ***FicCentral received this book from Kensington Books (via NetGalley) for free in exchange for an honest review.
