Good girl Posey Osterhagen and bad boy Liam Murphy dance around one another in a whirl of attraction, miscommunication, and personal bugaboos in Higgins’s slightly marred latest rom-com romp. Successful and content, Posey lives in her hometown amid family, friends, and people who know everything about her from childhood. All she needs is a man to round things out—but surely her high school crush, Liam, is not the one. Newly returned home with teenage daughter and tragedy in tow, Liam still takes Posey’s breath away, even as she fights the attraction that will probably break her heart all over again. Higgins (My One and Only) employs her usual breezy, intimate style, which is sure to engage her fans but also emphasizes how similar the near-farcical story is to some of her earlier (and stronger) novels.
