Waiting On You-Kristan Higgins

Waiting On You Kristan Higgins Harlequin HQN, Mar 25 2014, $7.99 ISBN: 9780373778584 A decade ago in Manningsport, New York, Lucas Campbell broke Colleen O’Rourke’s heart. He left town and she became a matchmaking spinster while running O’Rourke’s Tavern with her twin Connor. Her current matching effort involves Paulie “The Chicken Princess” Petrosinky and Lucas’ cousin Bryce Campbell. Lucas’ Uncle Joe calls to ask him to come home from Chicago as his every other day dialysis may have kept him alive but his lung cancer has gotten to the point he will die very soon. With little time left Joe needs his son Bryce settled, but believes only his nephew can achieve the seemingly impossible. Knowing he would do anything for Uncle Joe and musing about his first return home in ten years, Lucas thinks of how he will react when he sees Colleen. When she sees Lucas for the first time since he devastated her heart, Colleen realizes she still loves him; but fears déjà vu all over again (Yogism) outcome. The third Blue Heron madcap romance (see The Perfect Match and The Best Man) is an entertaining contemporary. The engaging second chance at love plot is enhanced by the support cast while flashbacks to when the leads were a youthful entry add better understanding of their present day personalities.
