Kristan Higgins Excerpt: On Second Thought

Kristan Higgins

On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins

Ainsley O'Leary is so ready to get married—she's even found the engagement ring her boyfriend has stashed away. What she doesn't anticipate is being blindsided by a breakup he chronicles in a blog…which (of course) goes viral. Devastated and humiliated, Ainsley turns to her older half sister, Kate, who's struggling with a sudden loss of her own.

Kate's always been the poised, self-assured sister, but becoming a newlywed—and a widow—in the space of four months overwhelms her. Though the sisters were never close, she starts to confide in Ainsley, especially when she learns her late husband was keeping a secret from her.

Despite the murky blended-family dynamic that's always separated them, Ainsley's and Kate's heartaches bind their summer together when they come to terms with the inevitable imperfection of relationships and family—and the possibility of one day finding love again.

Get a sneak peek at Kristan Higgins's On Second Thought (available January 31, 2017) with an exclusive excerpt of a selected scene.

But since we’re a fifty-fifty state, he had to buy me out, so I got the girls done—” she pointed proudly to her bosom, which big enough to hold a generous plate of pasta— “had a little refreshing done and took my sisters to France for a month. Oh, that made him mad!” She smiled fondly.

RITA Wayback Machine: Kristan Higgins on Deanna Raybourn’s Silent in the Grave

Silent in the Grave by Deanna RaybournWe’ve asked a few Romance Writers of America RITA winners and nominees to discuss their favorite winners from past RITA awards. Please welcome Kristan Higgins, who is a double RITA winner in years 2008 and 2010.

Here’s the backstory:

In 2008, we met Sookie Stackhouse and her coterie of vampire admirers as True Blood debuted on HBO. Katy Perry had just “Kissed A Girl,” while we were in the midst of deciding who would be President. Brett Favre left the Green Bay Packers, Heath Ledger wowed  us as the Joker in The Dark Knight, and we were all about “recession dining.”
