Somebody to Love

After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon's Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns—a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father's wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she's not thrilled…even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox.
Having to fend for herself financially for the first time in her life, Parker signs on as a florist's assistant and starts to find out who she really is. Maybe James isn't the glib lawyer she always thought he was. And maybe the house isn't the only thing that needs a little TLC….

My Take:

For anyone who is well versed in the books of Kristan Higgins (that would be me) this is not your first introduction to the headstrong & confident Parker Welles, her son, or the town of Gideons Cove.  You may remember Parker from The Next Best Thing... I know I do... and Gideons Cove was the setting for one of my favorites Catch of the Day!

Parker Welles is in over her head & James Cahill is JUST the man to dig her out.  The familiarity of the people & places that weave in and out of this story are an added bonus to the charming story line filled with unforgettable characters.  No requirement to read the 2 books that came before Somebody To Love stands all on it's own, but I can't imagine why you wouldn't want to read all three.


I received this book in digital form from Harlequin (via NetGalley) for reading and reviewing
