Praise for On Second Thought:

“Higgins has perfect pitch when it comes to her upstate New York protagonists
and their expanded worlds that even extend to Brooklyn. Emotional depth is seared into
every page along with wry banter, bringing readers to tears and smiles. Another hit for
Higgins.”—Library Journal, starred review

“A captivating read about two sisters dealing with love, loss and new
beginnings. What sets this book apart is how one event changes both women's lives. Kate is
refreshingly frank in her inner monologue, and Ainsley is charmingly self-aware and
wry.”—RT Book Reviews, *5 STARS* Top Pick!

“Higgins' complex, witty characters will seem like close friends, and readers
will savor each and every page as they find that love comes in many different flavors and
forms. Demand will be high for the latest from this women's-fiction
star.”—Booklist, starred review

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
