Book review: Waiting On You (Blue Heron #3) by Kristan Higgins
ebook provided by Netgalley and the publisher
Does being nobody's fool mean that you're nobody's love?
Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love... just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis and staying more or less happily single. See, ten years ago, Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart... an experience Colleen doesn't want to have again, thanks. Since then, she's been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting and playing matchmaker to her friends.
But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town, handsome as ever and still the only man who's ever been able to crack her defenses. Seems like maybe they've got some unfinished business waiting for them—but to find out, Colleen has to let her guard down, or risk losing a second chance with the only man she's ever loved.
Kristan Higgins has a way about her writing that just sucks you in and let's you have a good time. This is book 3 in the Blue Heron series but i think you can read this as a stand alone and be fine. Colleen O'Rourke is the town match maker she has several babies named after her because of it. She fun and pretty and the town loves her for all that and her big heart. For all her matchmaking her love life has been non existent for the past 10 years. Her first love Lucas Campbell left her and married someone else. Now though he's back in town to help a dying uncle with his last wishes and it puts him back in front of Colleen and single again. Confident, cool Colleen has no idea how to deal with Lucas and the feeling it still seems she has for him. Lucas has his own mixed up feelings but he knows there is something between Colleen and himself that he has to figure out. He doesn't belong in Manningsport he think so if they were to get together then what? Colleen is a part of the town and would never leave. It's fun to watch these two figure there way around each other. Add in Colleen's twin brother and her family drama, friends and the town people and there are so many laugh out loud moments. Somehow Kristan Higgins makes you want to keep reading to find out what's funny thing is going to happen next. Colleen gets all the best dialogue. If you want to just down and relax and enjoy yourself this is the book you need to read.
