    Mesmerizing, heartwarming, and brilliantly crafted

    Now That You Mention It is a touching story that immerses you in a tale about confronting the past, embracing the future, and discovering one's true self. The prose is well turned and fluid. The characters are unique, flawed, genuine, and lovable. And the story is an exceptionally absorbing tale about life, love, forgiveness, familial drama, friendship, courage, community, and happiness.   Now That You Mention It is the perfect mix of hope, heart, grit, and humour and undoubtedly Higgins at her best. It is so much more than expected. It makes you laugh, makes you cry, and leaves you with a smile, and I absolutely loved it!

    Enjoyable

    I find Kristan Higgins books highly entertaining. I feel like I know the people she writes about and whatever locations she sets her stories...I can imagine them. Well done!

    Now that you mention it

    It is clear that Kristan Higgins takes delight in writing. Her books, although threaded with the sometimes harsh realities of life, are full of light. Her main character is relatable and believable. Kristan was able to seamlessly tie the past to the present in this latest venture that delves more deeply into life themes than your average romance novel. You won't be disappointed with her latest foray into the trials and tribulations of a thirty-something gal pal and her side-kick pooch.

    Now That You Mention It

    Now That You Mention It was a bit different than what I expected. When I first meet Nora, she seems a little insubstantial. Like there was really nothing to her personality. She's a successful doctor, dating another successful doctor - until she gets hit by a car - and then dumped while she believes she's actually a ghost. The scene was devestating for her, but Kristan Higgans gave it just a bit of a lighthearted feel somehow. The bulk of the story takes place when Nora returns to her roots - Scupper Island. Everything and nothing has changed, and Nora still feels like she doesn't belong. Throw into the mix her mother, who still can't seem to show any affection, and her niece, a moody and withdrawn teenager whose mother is in jail, and Nora puts on a brave face and starts to pretend that everything will just be OK. But, of course, it isn't. There are old high school rivals, bullies, and mean girls to contend with. And a few are still holding a very serious grudge. But Nora tries not to let that get to her. She's determined to make the most of what she has - even if it doesn't seem like much at times. I loved how determined Nora was, while still showing a vulnerable side, and I really loved how much she loved her family and was willing to do just about anything to reconnect with them. In the long run, Nora grows into someone far more complex and likable that she was at the beginning. There a a few fantastic twists and turns with the people around her, and I was really surprised be a couple of them. I highly recommend this book. It was an enjoyable, relaxing listen with just enough excitement laced throughout.
