Nora Stuart’s day has gone from bad to worse. First, she’s hit by an exterminator’s van then she overhears her boyfriend hitting on the ER doctor. That’s particularly awkward as they are all doctors in the same hospital. Now Nora finds herself recuperating back at her childhood home on Scupper Island with the mother who she has never understood, and the angst filled teenage daughter of her incarcerated sister. However, there may be an upside to her self-imposed exile and his name is Sully. But even as they grow closer, Nora still has many personal things to deal with. Sully’s family hates her because she won a college scholarship they consider should have gone to Sully’s twin brother Luke, her niece has a chip on her shoulder the size of Scupper Island and her ex-boyfriend is not so sure he wants to be an ex (and a small problem with lying).
Now That You Mention It was just plain fun. I fell in love with Sully from the moment he appeared and although it took a bit for me to warm up to Nora by half way through their story, I fell in love with her too. They both had family issues that needed to be worked through and neither were looking for a relationship. Nora’s friends were a welcome addition that brought smiles to my face, especially Xiaowen, who I hope to see again in another Kristan Higgins book. Readers can’t go wrong with this feel good story! On a side note, I have to admit the bird and oven scene had me practically in tears with laughter!
