Now That You Mention ItNow That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Traveling Sisters Group Read by Norma with Brenda, Melisa, Susanne, Diane, and Sarah

4 stars from Norma!  This was my very first Kristan Higgins novel and I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it.  There were a few scenes within this novel that had me laughing so hard that my tummy hurt!  Even though some aspects of this novel was heartbreaking to read it was also very touching and heartwarming.

Brenda didn’t share in my enjoyment and thoughts on this one and she packed up her books and hightailed it out of the coulee, leaving me lost in the coulee all by lonesome to write this sister review.  I will refrain from expressing too much of my excitement within this review as to not trigger a rant from my normally very positive sister.  For me and my sisters (minus Brenda) we mostly all had similar thoughts on NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT and pretty much enjoyed this one all the same.

NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT by KRISTAN HIGGINS is an interesting, entertaining, humorous, and a light-hearted fun read that had some laugh out loud moments mixed in with some heavy themes to lighten the mood.  There were a lot of issues going on here as we were following Nora’s journey as she comes to terms with her past, her family, and making peace within her own life.

KRISTAN HIGGINS delivers an intriguing and captivating story here with unique and complex characters that was told in the first person narrative from our main character Nora. She was a very likeable and interesting character that was easy to relate to.

To sum it all up it was an enjoyable, entertaining, and a quick read with a satisfying ending!  Would recommend if you love a little grit within your romance novels but there was a little too much grit and serious subjects that was taken a little too lightly here for my dear sister, Brenda.

Publishing Date:  December 26, 2017

Thank you so much to NetGalley, Harlequin, and Kristan Higgins for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a review!

        Oh you are so sweet! I will def be reading it since it’s an EW title. I have a ‘free day’ tomorrow so I hope to start and finish it. Now I have an extra incentive to do so. I’d love to read the comments and see what everyone had to say! Thank you, you’re the best! But don’t hold up anyone writing their review waiting for me. I’d just be happy to read the comments and add mine tomorrow! 😊
