I received a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review.
Waiting on You is the third instalment of the Blue Heron series. I have read other books by Higgins but none from this series. I could easily follow along and would venture to guess that a few of the secondary characters were from the first two instalments.
I want to start out by saying that I was taken by surprise with this book. I was expecting a typical chic lit love story but this book was so much more. There were some seriously funny, laugh out loud moments in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed the humour and sarcasm throughout.
Colleen and Lucas were a real treat to get to know. Higgins gives you the perfect blend of past and present in order to fully understand their relationship and how deep their connection was. Colleen was a spitfire, flirt and extremely sarcastic woman who prided herself in making love connections for others in her community even when one was lacking in hers. Lucas was the boy that broke her heart and she could never quite get over. He was the hunky, strong, silent type with piercing eyes that I'm sure most women would have a hard time recovering from. They were not without their faults though. Colleen came off as a little conceited at times and Lucas was ever so slow in making decisions where they were concerned and lets not forget that he was also the one that married someone else after getting her pregnant.
As much as I enjoyed the second chance romance aspect of this book I think it was the humour and sarcasm that really won me over. Without saying too much I have to say that the Paulie and Bryce story and Colleen's mom were real treats to read about. With thneeds, painting hairy nude men and the menopausal support group it was really quite funny.
I really enjoyed this story and plan to check out the rest of the Blue Heron series to see if they are similar in humour and sarcasm.
