Goodreads:  Does being nobody’s fool mean that you’re nobody’s love?

Colleen O’Rourke is in love with love… just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, New York, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis and staying more or less happily single. See, ten years ago, Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart… an experience Colleen doesn’t want to have again, thanks. Since then, she’s been happy with a fling here and there, some elite-level flirting and playing matchmaker to her friends.

But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town, handsome as ever and still the only man who’s ever been able to crack her defenses. Seems like maybe they’ve got some unfinished business waiting for them—but to find out, Colleen has to let her guard down, or risk losing a second chance with the only man she’s ever loved.

Ope’s Opinion:  I started reading this before I went on my vacation to the beach and finished it while I was there. It was the perfect book for this vacation.  Since I read Blue Heron one and two, picking up three was easy to get into.  It was fun to see where all the characters are now. 

Colleen’s story was a fun one to read. I enjoyed reading about her Lucas.  They had a long complicated love story.  Seeing their second chance at love melted my heart.

The ending was exactly what I expected and what I wanted.  I am looking forward to the next one that Kristan Higgins writes.
