      Coleen was popular;not mean-girl popular, just really well likedI think I have read almost all the books that Ms Higgins has written. I have loved them all and she is an auto-buy for me. This one was no exception. Actually this one was nearly better than all her other good books.She’d forgotten how he looked, like a pirate, like Heathcliff of the moors, dark and slightly dangerous except for his eyes, which could be so sad. And so happy, too.Colleen O'Rourke is in love with love Coleen and her [...]

      ★★★½Waiting on You is the third installment in Kristan Higgins's adult contemporary romance series titled: Blue Heron. This was another very likable addition to a sweet and romantic series. Waiting on You incorporated complicated family dynamics in regards to the hero which made me tear up a bit. With palpable emotions and a few pretty laughable scenes, this one was a great addition to the series. My favorite quote:“I’ve found that if you expect the best of a person, you generally get [...]

      I truly think this is Kristan Higgins best book that she's written so far. No lags in pacing, her characters are multi-layered and down to earth, and there just seemed to be so much depth to this entire story many people involved and yet they all played a decisive role in how this book played out.My heart is thumping in my chestwhat an ending, what a story! This is my first five star read by this author and it just blew me away. This is quality writing laced with more than a touch of humor, inun [...]

      I've debated with myself about even writing a review, but I'm just too frustrated! I love Kristan Higgins. This is the only book of hers that I've read that has frustrated me so much. Colleen O'Roarke is a tough, take charge woman, who doesn't take any crap from anyone. Except when it comes to her first love Lucas Campbell. Even though as far as she knew he married someone 2 months after Colleen ended their 4 year relationship because he refused to tell her that he loved her and completely freak [...]

      5 second-chance stars!Ten years ago, Lucas Campbell broke Colleen O'Rourke's heart. It was devastating. Colleen had moved on for the most part, but fate intervened when Lucas comes back to Manningsport to take care of family business. Suddenly, Colleen's walls are tested especially when Lucas seems intent on winning her back. What followed is one of the most wonderfully bittersweet story about love second chances, forgiveness, family and community. This book hits all the right spot for me.Collee [...]

      This book was a real page turner for me and I kind of wished it didn’t end yet after I read the last page. Unfortunately, I make these comments for the wrong reasonsIt’s a page turner for me because I couldn’t stand a lot of the scenes, particularly the ones where the author was probably trying to set up funny moments (eg any scene involving Paulie and Bryce or Colleen trying to cook dinner for Lucas). A lot of other readers may find them funny, but they just made me cringe and feel immens [...]

      10 ++++++ STARS!!How do you write a review about a book so perfect, you can't stop thinking about it? Crying happy tears about it? Wishing you could tell the world about it?Giving this book 5 stars doesn't seem fitting. It isn't enough of a rating to justify how I felt reading it. LOVED IT! This is the 3rd book in KH's Blue Heron series and although I fell in love with the first one, The Best Man, this is probably the best of the series so far. We finally get Colleen's story, the vivacious and f [...]

      I love the way Kristan Higgins writes. Her writing offers more style, flair, wit and warmth than pretty much any other contemporary romance author out there. (Speaking of which, prospective readers should know that she focuses so heavily on the characters' friends, relatives and various subplots that many have always considered KH's work 'chick lit'/woman's-centric fiction rather than actual romance anyway.) The fact that I love the way this author writes helps explain why I continue to try her [...]

      Como todos lo de esta saga, es un libro para reir ( mucho, muchisimo), sonreir e incluso tener un momento de reflexion sobre la vida de los personajes Es el libro que mas me he reido por las ocurrencias de la madre (y demas menopausicas), las situaciones de intentar hacer de casamentera y los pensamientos de Colleen. Leer libros asi da gusto, te deja con una sonrisa en la cara para todo el dia y eso se agradece mucho. Seguire esta saga con ganas renovadas cuando saquen los siguientes libros ( le [...]

      I am really enjoying Kristan Higgins writing and this Blue Heron series is fantastic. But I am in a bit of a reviewing funk and can't seem to pull my head out of my Well you get the picture right. I've already moved on to book #4 but wanted to let you all know this one got thumbs up from me. :)

      Originally posted at The Book NymphoThe Matchmaker gets matched!The set upColleen O'Rourke has a breezy personality with a witty, flirty retort for everybody. But underneath that generous heart is a serious bruise, created when the love of her life, Lucas Campbell, the only man she's ever loved, left her 14 years ago. Now he's back in town for a brief stay and he still takes her breath away. The issuesNo one understood why Lucas left Colleen so abruptly, including her. He had his reasons but the [...]

      This was my first book by this author. I was pleasantly surprised to like her work. I found her characters interesting, their issues realistic without being drama rama ridiculous. I liked them I found it easy to connect with them and wanted them to succeed.Two children from broken families, fall in love and crash in disaster. His mother died and his father was sent to prison. He is sent to live with his uncle and his wife who makes sure he feels unwelcome. She has a father who cheated and left h [...]

      Kristan Higgins, where have you been been all my li-i-i-ife?I loved this book and I can't wait to start on her entire catalogue. I haven't read chick-lit this good since I finished all of Susan Elizabeth Phillips's books.

    15. A_Ryan on said:

      A brilliant read for any romantic soul who enjoys a bit of a laugh and a bit of a cry too. This series just gets better and better and the characters continue to tug at your heart strings even the damn 6ft dog!Waiting On You tells Colleen's story (although how exactly she is part of The Blue Heron is unclear. She is obviously linked to the youngest daughter, Faith, having been her best friend since school and it is this acquaintance which has somehow sufficed). Colleen is like a modern day versi [...]

      02/21/2015 --I had tears at the end of this one. This is my third book by this author and I know the formula she uses to write her stories, but it works for me. She has a good, solid story. She creates really believable, likeable [for the most part] characters. Not a ton of angst, but enough to make the love worth the effort. People who know that love ain't easy, but with the right person, it is so worth it. What's not to love?Bryce in this one was a bit much. A 31 year old man who acted like a [...]

    17. BookLover on said:

      This is a great series. I loved book one and two, but this book has been my favourite in the series so far. I find Kristan Higgins writing to be very funny. The dialogue between Colleen and her twin brother Connor cracked me up.Colleen's deadpan comebacks for the come-ons made towards her were so funny. My favourite was"Oh, my God, are you flirting with me? Give me a second to take off my panties, and I'm yours."Kristan has a way of weaving in characters around town so that you feel like you are [...]

      Wow!Very emotional story which had extremely sad parts that really got to me as it brought back some very sad memories - I am just thankful that I was home and in private when reading it.As a norm I prefer a lot more steam in my romance but will forgive that if the story is good and I like the authors style. This is the second KH story I've read and I am looking forward to reading more ☺

      Ten years earlier, Lucas left Colleen to marry another woman. A woman who was pregnant with his child. In those ten years Colleen's life has been in a holding pattern. She dispenses advice, sets people up, but has never been able to get over her first love.When his uncle tells him he isn't long for the world, Lucas drops everything and returns to Manningsport to be with him in his last days. And now divorced the way is clear for him to fix up his past mistakes. But Colleen is wary and her life i [...]

      Una persona de cuyo criterio me fío me recomendó a esta autora. Al mirar entre los libros que había publicado, me di cuenta de que hacía tiempo había leído otro suyo, Tirando del anzuelo, y me dejó algo fría. Escogí Te esperaré solo a ti un poco al azar. La verdad es que los títulos me parecen poco atractivos, y las cubiertas, ni te cuento. En fin: historia romántica de personajes un poco planos (para mi gusto), escritura ágil y agradable de leer, pero poco más.

      Colleen O’Rourke loves fixing up the people in her hometown of Manningsport. She owns the local bar with her twin brother Connor and can be found behind it mixing drinks and dispensing advice to her customers. She’s quick to spot a potential couple and move to make it happen. There are a plethora of little Colleens in Manningsport, named for her by grateful parents. There’s even a Colin and a Cole, the birth of a male baby not deterring some from honouring Colleen for her contribution.But [...]

      Got the mixed feeling all over again! It seemed like the expected reaction for the whole series (so far).This is the third installment of the Blue Heron series and this time it was Colleen's turn. Colleen O'Rourke, part owner (the other half is her twin brother, Connor) of the popular bar in Manningsport (well, one of two restaurants in town, actually), the seemingly ever cheerful woman who always have something nice to say to all her patrons.Hmm wrong I was about Colleen (and I think it's safe [...]

    23. Keertana on said:

      By now, it's no secret that I adore Kristan Higgins. While her covers scream "chick lit" and her writing is humorously effortless, the depth found within her love stories forced her books to transcend the stigma of mindless, cheesy "chick lit." While her latest, Waiting on You, is nowhere near as amusing, romantic, or steamy as the previous two installments in her Blue Heron Series, it is still perfectly satisfactory for a gloomy day and, as always, is guaranteed to put a smile on even the stern [...]

      I've stopped crying so I can review this. Doesn't matter that my eyes are swollen and I can hardly see the screen. So my first K.H book was My One and Only. This was back b4 my e-reader time when I would walk into the library and rent books to feed my addiction. My 2nd book was Just One Of The Guys. Which will hands down always ALWAYS be my favourite book by Kristan Higgins. That book tortured my soul. I cried and I laughed and I cried and I laughed. Shit then I cried some more. By the end of th [...]

      Kristan Higgins is a wonderful writer and I'm always excited to read her books. In Waiting On You, Colleen O'Rourke is shaken when the only man she's ever loved returns to Manningsport. It was pretty much love at first sight for Colleen when Lucas Campbell first came to town to live with his uncle when they were teenagers. Colleen was never one for dating until Lucas. After falling totally in love with him, and expecting to spend her life with him, they have a horrible argument after she finds o [...]

      Is it just me, or are Kristan Higgins' heroines growing more and more abject as time goes on? Colleen O'Rourke is the town "glue" girl of Manningsport, NY, the one who knows everyone, is friends with everyone, and spends much of her time matchmaking while she works in the restaurant/bar she co-owns with her twin brother. Ten years ago, her boyfriend of four years abruptly told her he was marrying another woman, and she's never had a serious relationship since. Of course, when now-divorced Lucas [...]

      I liked this one better than the last one which made me vaguely uncomfortable. Overall, I enjoy this series and am looking forward to continuing on!
