    1. Just when I thought there was no way Kristan Higgins could steal my heart yet AGAIN—or hold me captive with her snarky humor, smart writing and endearing characters—she goes and does it. I know, what was I thinking? How can I consider myself an optimist at heart when I’m always waiting to be left disappointed? Through Nora, Kristan Higgins conveys a meaningful message that resonates within the pages of a stellar read, a true standout, an utterly captivating experience. Similar to If You On [...]

    2. This was my second novel by Kristin Higgins and I loved it! Kristin Higgins has a definite sharp humor in her novel and the characterization is on point my friends!I started this book on Sunday and didn't get out of pj's all day! So, I've heard Higgins novels are known for romance but this one I don't think it's really a "romance" per say. This book was honestly a breath of fresh air and just what the doctor ordered for Kendall ;)I adored Nora what a kick ass character with a strong sense of str [...]

    3. 4 StarsDr. Nora Stuart is not having a good day. She feels like she’s been hit by a mack truck – the crazy thing is, she’s actually been hit by a Van (sounds like the craziest thing ever right?!). When she wakes up in the Hospital, she overhears her ER Doctor boyfriend Bobby flirting with another doctor telling her that he was planning to break up with Nora that weekend (no joke!). Talk about a disaster. When she’s finally able to leave the Hospital, Nora has no interest in moving back i [...]

    4. 3.5 This is just one of those novels, the ones I occasionally need to read when my life is stressed or as a nice, welcoming break between other heavy or intense books. Not that this doesn't tackle some heavy issues, but all in all it is a book that leaves one feeling hopeful, warm hearted. The setting of Scuppers island in Maine was also a draw, since I have never read anything set here, nor in fact heard of before. It is also the fourth book I have read in a short period of time concerning bull [...]

    5. Traveling Sisters Group Read by Norma with Brenda, Melisa, Susanne, Diane, and Sarah4 stars from Norma!  This was my very first Kristan Higgins novel and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. There were a few scenes within this novel that had me laughing so hard that my tummy hurt!  Even though some aspects of this novel was heartbreaking to read it was also very touching and heartwarming.Brenda didn’t share in my enjoyment and thoughts on this one and she packed up her books and hightail [...]

    6. 5 stars!Sometimes it takes a few years before you understand what you're worth. And who's worth your time."It's official. I have my first five-star read of the year. And so well-deserved, too. I don't know how to review this book that would give it justice. It was hopeful, heartwarming and breaking, funny, and oh so beautiful. I'm so happy I got to read the chance to read this. I'll let you in on a secret—I'm tearing up a little as I'm writing this review. Not because this was a total tearjerk [...]

    7. Nora Stuart grew up on Scupper Island, Maine, a small island three miles from the state’s coast and was shaped by two major events in her life: her father’s departure when she was 12-years old and pretty awful high school years. Her salvation was winning a competitive scholarship only available to islanders that took her away from her hometown for the next 15 years, even though that came at a price. When she’s injured in an accident, Nora returns to Scupper to recuperate, facing a communit [...]

    8. “Say a grizzly bear came down from Canada and bit off her arm. Mom would just shoot the bear, sew her arm back on with the thick black thread she used to sew our buttons back on when we were kids, then butcher the bear, make it into chili and use the skin as a rug.”Doctor Nora Stuart goes home to Scupper Island after being hit by a van. She doesn’t have a warm relationship with her mother or her niece, who is there because her mother is in jail. Nora hopes to get closer to her niece. She [...]

    9. If you're in the mood to sink into a cute and slightly quirky read that is mostly lighthearted fun, this is the book for you. I'm generally NOT a fan of romance, and while the book certainly has romantic moments, they're not overdone or even the backbone of the story itself. Yes, there's some romance. There's also a lot more. Family issues, dealing with your past, guilt, secrets, grief, and new beginnings. While most of it is very light, there is one part somewhere in the middle that involves a [...]

    10. This is my first time reading Kristan Higgins and wanted to read this book due to the glowing review from my pal Melissa. This book definitely lives in a world of its own- there is a LOT going on here to the point where I wouldn’t know how to classify it as a genre - some romance, some darkness touched upon, with a healthy dose of other heavy themes. However, there were more than several instances where I found myself laughing out loud and for this reason alone, I will DEFINITELY be back for m [...]

    11. With every new release I read from Kristan Higgins, I am more and more amazed at the complexity and palpable emotion she brings to her characters. In Now That You Mention It, she has written a heroine that I fell absolutely in love with. Readers get to follow her from present to past and forward again and witness first hand some very stressful events that show how very human and resilient she is. Higgins also brought attention to underappreciated medical professionals and important awareness to [...]

    12. 3.75 - 4 Stars"sometimes it takes a few years before you understand what you're worth. And who's worth your time."

    13. 3.5 stars. This is my third KH book, and while it wasn't my favorite, it was still very enjoyable. This was a Traveling Sister read. You can find this and other reviews in their blog at:twogirlslostinacouleereading.What I liked:-The characters. I even liked the teens, and I rarely like teens in novels- I liked that the romance was a minor part of the book, it wasn't insta-love, and it didn't have too many eye-rolling moments. -I liked that some serious issues were dealt with in a "lighter" manne [...]

    14. This book deserves all the stars. It's rare that I come across a book that is so good that I literally can't put it down. I started it yesterday, stayed up late, got up early to read more, read while I worked out - I didn't want to stop! It was absolutely fantastic - one of KH's best yet. Loved loved loved every minute!!

    15. 4.5 StarsI loved Nora! I was completely sucked into her story; unraveling the past, and hoping for a satisfying future for her! I felt bad for all that she went through. God, high school can be so hard! The kids were awful to her, yet Nora rose above it and became an accomplished woman. Leaving Scupper Island, where she grew to become a doctor in Boston, she hasn’t returned for fifteen years, and who could blame her? After an accident leaves Nora banged up and without a boyfriend (good riddanc [...]

    16. Mesmerizing, heartwarming, and brilliantly crafted!Now That You Mention It is a touching story that immerses you in a tale about confronting the past, embracing the future, and discovering one's true self.The prose is well turned and fluid. The characters are unique, flawed, genuine, and lovable. And the story is an exceptionally absorbing tale about life, love, forgiveness, familial drama, friendship, courage, community, and happiness.  Now That You Mention It is the perfect mix of hope, he [...]

    17. “I was hit by a car, and according to the Hallmark Channel, I’m supposed to come home.”The opening for this story grabbed a hold of me and then didn’t let go. Kristan Higgins is great at delivering an underdog heroine, but I wasn’t quite prepared for what she had in store for me with Nora Stuart. Nora, after experiencing a “life flashing before your eyes” accident, decided it was time to go back to her childhood home, Scupper Island, to face her past and repair the relationships in [...]

    18. I'm a huge, HUGE Kristan Higgins fan, and I think she does that middle ground between women's fiction and romance like no other. Now That You Mention It was another wonderful, nuanced, lovely book in that style, and a great offering for long-time Higgins devotees and newcomers alike. I connected with Now That You Mention It immediately. First of all, it gives MAJOR props to my alma mater, Tufts University (what, what!) and takes place in a little island off the coast of Maine, where I spent all [...]

    19. 4.6 STARSHonestly, I don't know how she does it, but Kristan Higgins always puts together such wonderful stories. I was on the fence at the ending of this one I felt a little cut off at the knees I was just not ready for it to be over yet. I would have liked to have a better resolution there at the end. There were too many stones left un-turned. I can't go into detail, but in short, I think this book could have been a hundred pages longer. (And I don't say that often.)All in all, another wonderf [...]

    20. Now That You Mention ItKristan HigginsReceived from EdelweissNora Stuart's father left the small island of Scupper, Maine when she was twelve years old. Her high school years were horrible and her only saving grace was earning a full scholarship to Tuffts University. She leaves the island becomes a doctor, but always wonders why her dad left all those years ago. When he left Nora and her younger sister Lily were never close like they were when her dad was around. Nora misses her sister terribly [...]

    21. A quick fun read! Some laugh out loud moments too! I want to move to Scupper Island, a tiny coastal town in Maine (that is if the winters weren’t so brutal). Lol

    22. I'm in the minority on this one. I think I would've liked the book better if not for a number of niggling issues that killed whatever sympathy I had for the characters. ARC provided by the publisher

    23. “I was hit by a car, and according to the Hallmark Channel, I'm supposed to come home.”The Hallmark Channel and I are BESTIES around the holidays, so this one was pretty much in the bag. Nothing earth shatteringly unique here, just a cozy, satisfying story with great characters to root for. Sigh. Kristan Higgins just gets better and better.

    24. Oh man this book was everything for me. I LOVED it. Nora was a fabulous character that was super easy to root for. After an accident she goes back her hometown on Scupper Island and i loved this community. Lots of quirky characters really made the story have a humor to it but also a lot of heart. There were so many things covered in this story and all handled beautifully. I can't wait for more Higgins books in the future.I like Saturday Night Live but am not a crazy fan. I probably watched most [...]

    25. There are an extremely limited amount of authors I fangirl over, I mean truly go crazy for and Kristan Higgins is one of them. I’m not kidding when I say I don’t even read the blurb for her novels before I’m desperate to read them, I think they’re THAT good. This is such a cliché thing to say, but her books get better and better and I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite, but I can highly recommend every single one, and yes I’ve read them all. You know how you get people asking fo [...]

    26. A perfect read that is light,easy, and filled with likable characters. A definite recommendation for a vacation/beach/summer read.

    27. I received a copy of this title via Edelweiss. It does not impact my review. I have been a fan of Kristan Higgins for years now and have read all of her books – most of them multiple times. Whenever I need a pick-me-up her books do the trick. I don’t read a lot of straight up Romance books so she has become my go-to when that’s what I’m in the mood for. Her last few books, though, have moved out of the Romance category and more into Women’s Fiction. While the books have obviously stil [...]

    28. Kristin Higgins always delivers a sweet romance filled with lots of snarky banter, witty one liners and humor left and right. And even though her books are filled with all things that make me smile, they still manage to convey a deep meaning of family, love, and other goodness. Her latest isn't an exception to the rule, however it does have a slightly different almost more solemn and darker feel to it. Not in the “someone is murdered and had to stash the body somewhere” darkness but more of [...]

    29. This is such an entertaining read. My first book by Kristan Higgins, it certainly won't be my last - it is so good. Female friendship and family relationships are recurring themes. The characters are so well defined and interesting, yet very imperfect. There were hilarious moments - I laughed every day. Everything is not sunshine & roses; there is quite a bit of darkness. The message, the take-away in this book is: life is what you make it. This is a story that will stay with me.
