Three little birds, Pitch by my doorstep, Singin' sweet songs, Of melodies pure and true

"The Next Best Thing" by Kristan Higgins is sweet ... heartwarming ... and also a major tear-jerker! Lucy lost the love of her life, 5 and a half years ago, to a car accident. Still living with the great sense of loss .... she finally decides that she would still like to have a family of her own. But she wants someone who isn’t perfect, meaning: a nice man, not-to-handsome, would make a good father, and most importantly someone who won’t make her give her whole heart to him. As she’s already dealt with as much pain as she thinks she can deal with ... she doesn’t want to go through that loss again. This means she’s going to have to give up Ethan, her dead husband’s younger brother, who’s her friend-with-benefits. However, Ethan won’t be pushed aside so easily ...

3.5 out of 5 stars. I meant what I said ... it's heartwarming and a very sweet book about how love can heal the soul. Yet I didn't completely expect to be crying so much while reading it. =0P

For more information on this book and/or any other books by Kristan, then please check out her website.

** Title is from the song Everythings Gonna Be Alright by Bob Marley **
