Waiting on You
by Kristan Higgins

Pages: 384
Publisher: Harlequin
Publication Date: March 25, 2014

Colleen O'Rourke has lived in Manningsport, New York all of her life.  She and her twin, Connor, run the local bar and not only does she  know everyone who walks through the doors, she is well known for her successful matchmaking skills.  Even though she has three babies named after her, Colleen is still single herself.  She has dated a lot (!!) of men in her day, but none of them have struck her fancy as much as her ex Lucas Campbell did.  They met in high school and dated for four years before their lack of communication forced the end of their relationship.  Colleen hasn't seen Lucas in ten years when he shows up outta the blue.  He is back to help care for his ailing uncle and will be there as long as it takes.   Will Lucas and Colleen rekindle their romance or is their past too big of a barrier to get around?

Waiting on You was a fun book to read.  Colleen O'Rourke has to be one of my more favorite characters from Kristan Higgins. Mostly because she is so flawed, quite hysterically flawed. I found myself laughing out loud several times, like when Colleen is trying to cook scallops for Lucas, then they was the scene at the ball game.  Even though there were several funny scenes there were a few times where my heart hurt for both Lucas and Colleen.  Waiting on You IS an Harlequin novel so go into it expecting a few "mushy" moments, but nothing too graphic or out of hand.

Bottom line, every now and then you just need to read a fun book that makes you feel good.  Kristan Higgins does that for me.  I always know I am going to have a good time reading her books and get a good story at the same time.   Laughing is good for the soul, right?
