Lucy Lang isn't looking for fireworks. She's looking for a nice, decent man. Someone who'll mow the lawn, flip chicken on the barbecue, teach their future children to play soccer. But most important: someone who won't inspire the slightest stirring in her heart - or anywhere else. A young widow, Lucy can't risk that kind of loss again. But sharing her life with a cat named Fat Mikey and the Black Widows at the family bakery isn't enough either.

I'm a big fan of Kristan Higgins, I've read most of her books and absolutely enjoy everyone one of them. This one I was kinda lost, I got this book thinking it's was book 2 of Gideon's Cove but in fact this book has nothing to do with Gideon's Cove. Still I continue on, the story itself is entertaining, got lots of laugh out of me but the going back and forth between Lucy and Ethan all because of Lucy's not knowing what she wants and needs almost made me want to stop. The narrator was awesome like always, to me if it was another narrator I would have walked away from this one.
