"The kind of book I enjoy the most—sparkling characters, fast-moving plot and laugh-out-loud dialogue. A winner!" —New York Times bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips on If You Only Knew

New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins welcomes you home in this witty, emotionally charged novel about the complications of life, love and family

One step forward. Two steps back. The Tufts scholarship that put Nora Stuart on the path to becoming a Boston medical specialist was a step forward. Being hit by a car and then overhearing her boyfriend hit on another doctor when she thought she was dying? Two major steps back.

Injured in more ways than one, Nora feels her carefully built life cracking at the edges. There’s only one place to land: home. But the tiny Maine community she left fifteen years ago doesn’t necessarily want her. At every turn, someone holds the prodigal daughter of Scupper Island responsible for small-town drama and big-time disappointments.

With a tough islander mother who’s always been distant, a wild-child sister in jail and a withdrawn teenage niece as eager to ditch the island as Nora once was, Nora has her work cut out for her if she’s going to take what might be her last chance to mend the family. Balancing loss and opportunity, dark events from her past with hope for the future, Nora will discover that tackling old pain makes room for promise…and the chance to begin again.

Now that you Mention It

Good read!! It had a good storyline that kept me turning the pages until the end. First time I’ve read a book from this author. I definitely will be checking out her other books.

Dinner party scene, alone, makes this worth the read

I really like the whole book, but especially the dinner party in chapter 15. The story is about life: struggles with self image, mental health, family dynamics- and not a quick read. I was going to read in bed & fall asleep, instead I was laughing - out loud - at the dinner party in Chapter 15! I recommend this book, the whole story - but if nothing else, read it for the dinner party scene.
