I have not read Kristan Higgins in a long while and was happy when this audio hold came in. This book is about two sisters who find themselves going through upheaval at the exact same moment. I loved that the audio had two narrators so it was easy to tell which sister was speaking. The two narrators were very different. I liked the one that narrated Ainsley's part as it was just like her upbeat and easy to listen to. The narrator for Kate was a bit too dramatic, which is unlike Kate. The story was realistic with a contemporary-romance flair (ie: HEA) and that is why I read them :)

Great story about families, love lost and love found. I liked the characters (with the exception of Eric) and wanted to know about their stories and where their lives ended. Good read.

Love this author. I've read most of her books. Good story line, kept me reading. Although I enjoyed it, I have to agree with previous comment about the switching back and forth between the sisters stories.
As always, humor, a dog, mixed with lots of emotion.

A friend who hosts the World's Best Book Club (it really is ~ check it out on Facebook) in New Zealand recommended Kristan Higgins. On Second Thought was first on my list.

Fabulous story about love and loss. Great characters. I laughed out loud several times and cried a bit too. Gram-Gram is a hoot.

The author's penchant for switching between Katie and Ainsley's stories with each chapter was annoying for me.

Loved! this book! Couldn't put it down - but didn't want it to end. Such a good good book.

I loved this one! I couldn't stop reading and was very sorry to finish the book. I know I will re-read it.

One of the best books I ever read - in fact I re-read just two weeks later because I loved it so much. There are poignant and sad moments interspersed with a dry witty humor that has you laughing out loud.

Nearly perfect novel! Well-balanced and well-written. A good story with easy-to-root-for characters.

Funny, charming, and a tear-jerker, all rolled up into one. Fans of early Jennifer Weiner will love.
