Goodreads:  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….

Kritters Thoughts:  Another Kristan Higgins book that was sweet, sassy and full of life.  The reader meets Parker Welles a single mom who is in an interesting situation.  The father of her child is married to her best friend and the three of them make a great support system to raise the sweetest little boy - Nicky.  A devastating blow to Parker's lifestyle happens and her world is immediately changed and it takes a village to help her get back on her feet.  

Although these books can seem to be predictable, they have heart and romance which are just the right ingredients for a sweet summer romance.  I love the ease of reading with all of Kristan Higgins books, sometimes its not only the plot that makes a book, but the way a book is written.  As well, Kristan Higgins' characters are always easy to connect with, so the story can quickly grow around such great characters.  

I would recommend all readers to pick up this book and take it to a pool or to the beach. It was easy to get into this one and the story didn't lull at all, I was swept into the story the entire time.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
