The Next Best Thing by Kristen Higgins

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. So it's goodbye to Ethan, her hot but entirely inappropriate "friend with privileges," and hello to a man she can marry. 

Too bad Ethan Mirabelli isn't going anywhere. As far as he's concerned, what she needs might be right under her nose. But can he convince her that the next best thing can really be forever?

What can I say? This book was so emotional that I could not stop reading. It will definitely capture everyone attention because it has so much love and warmth. Lucy has experience a tragedy when her husband died. However, she never let go or move on. This novel definitely explains how difficult it is to let go of someone and how hard it is to love someone else. Lucy believe that she does not deserve another person to love because she afraid to lose them too.  However, the unexpected happens. She is definitely in love with her dead husband brother, Ethan. Yes, she was difficult and stubborn that she did not love him at all, it was just lust. But Ethan does not give up. He always love from the start. It took a long time to let go, but she definitely realize that she will always love Ethan and want to be with him. This book has so much emotion that I can understand how hard it is for widower to move on. A good read! Everyone should read it. 


  1. Thanks for the review. I have a couple of Kristan's books on my TBR mountain and must get to them. I have heard nothing but good things about her books.
