OrangeReviewStarThere's no way unattached Emmaline Neal can avoid attending her ex-fiancé's Malibu wedding. But for that she needs a date—a gorgeous date with no strings attached, someone just like divorced winemaker Jack Holland. And Jack is more than willing to oblige. With the unwanted attention he's been getting for saving some reckless teens from drowning and the sudden reappearance of Jack's faithless ex-wife, a platonic weekend trip across the country sounds just about perfect. (If only they knew!) An abundance of well-drawn secondary characters, down-to-earth humor, and skillfully handled emotional issues add depth to an already enjoyable installment in Higgins's popular series.
VERDICT A reluctant hero haunted by the reckless teen he couldn't save and a smart, plucky heroine with issues of her own are blindsided by love in a spirited, truly funny, and emotionally satisfying romance you won't want to put down. Humor and heart in one stunning package! Higgins (Waiting on You) lives in Durham, CT.
