It's been over a decade since Nora left her hometown of Scupper Island, Maine, and very seldom looked back. She's carved out a successful life in Boston, where no one knows her as the awkward girl with the delinquent sister and the dad who left, but a not-as-dramatic-as-it-sounds brush with death has her taking stock of her life. Inspired to reconnect with her prickly mother and snarky teenage niece, Nora returns home for the summer, where she's forced to face the people she's spent the last ten years trying to avoid.

Kristan Higgins is a marvelous story teller. Her books are always engaging and full of humor and wit. Xe Sands as the narrator is a great bonus. Her ability to add emotion and humanity to the characters takes them off the page and adds demention, making her the perfect compliment to Ms. Higgins writing skills.

Visionary gardener Tammy Hollins is making a new life for herself and her children after a tragic marriage. Plants she understands, but men...well, they're of the weed variety. She's started her own landscaping business, catering to her country music rock star brother's friends. Her first client is sexy, soulful, alpha hero material - and the one man who tantalizes her and scares her to death.

Nice to read a story about someone who has struggled with abuse and who is learning how to be their own person again.
