I absolutely loved this book. Even when I wanted to put duct tape over Harper's mouth ("Stop talking! Stop talking right now!"), I loved her as a character. Even when I wanted to smack Nick upside the head and say, "Hello? Take some responsibility here, Bozo!" I loved him. Kristan writes characters that are so real they practically jump off the pages at you, and I just don't know how she does it book after book. She is a master at putting them in situations that are so cringeworthy that you just know that if they happened to you (and somehow, you could totally see them happening to you, no matter how ludicrous they seem) you'd want to die right then and there, but somehow, they survive. Just when all hope is lost, she has a character quote Yoda, (the classic "Do or do not. There is no try." Of course.) and somehow we all make it through. If you've never read a Kristan Higgins before, do yourself a favor and pick one up. Any one. Really, you'll be glad you did. (And for the record, I absolutely did not go on the Barnes and Noble website every day for three weeks clicking the "Tell the publisher you want this book in ebook format" button until it showed up as a Nookbook. Nope, that definitely wasn't me. Even if it had been, I never clicked it more than once a day. That would be wrong.)

Martha's Vineyard Divorce attorney Harper James is mortified with the news that her stepsister Wills is marrying Christopher Lowery her former brother-n-law in Glacier Park, Montana. She and Chris' brother Nick married very young, but their marriage failed though the desire remained stratospheric as both realize when they meet in Big Sky Country. Following the wedding of Wills and Chris, to their mutual chagrin Harper and Nick travel cross country together due to a mix up. On their trek, she begins to relook why their marriage failed and why she still loves him in spite of having Dennis the firefighter as her boyfriend for more than a couple of years; mostly her introspection focuses on abandonment. This is an amusing lighthearted at times frantic second chance at love romance as Harper and Nick flirt, fuss, and fight while causing havoc across the country. The story line never turns serious as Kristin Higgins provides a wonderful jocular road trip starring a delightful divorce lawyer with a real experience on her résumé and a hunk of an architect who is her one and only, but is that enough.

I liked most of her books, this one was just okay. The main character was annoying.

One reviewer noted that she wanted to tell the main character, Harper, to just shut up at one point. The reviewer didn't get it, or Harper at all. I don't understand how when her character was so richly drawn, with such detail and love that I wanted to hug her. I was completely fascinated with Harper's complexity. Harper's love interest, Nick, is intense, lovely, irritating, sweet and just such a guy. You'll want these two to get together so much it aches. Kristan Higgins has written what I consider to be one of the finest novels of this type I've ever read, and I read voraciously. Her characters are deeply real, their journey is hilarious and sad and poignant - all the best things a book can be. As I read My One and Only I was struck by the depth of these two characters, illustrated by their growing up wounded in a modern family situation with experiences that so impacted their adult relationships. Best of all, they overcome.

I've read a lot of books by Kristan Higgins and I always love the story lines and find myself laughing out loud at the characters. I bought this book within a week of its release and was excited to read it, but I was pretty disappointed. I did not like neither Nick nor harper's characters too much. All in all I would say that I would have preferred to check the book out from a library rather than purchasing it. I don't see myself reading it again.

I love Kristan Higgins books. This one, I feel, is her best yet!! You will laugh and maybe even cry a little, but it's all good. Definitely worth the read. Be prepared to not be able to put it down.

I had a hard time putting it down because it was so funny and yet so romantic. I did laugh out loud for sure. I thought the characters were well thought out. Ups and downs of their lives made you want to keep turning the page

Harper and Nick run into one another at their siblings wedding. Yes, you heard that right. Her sister is marrying his brother. It is a weird situation all around. Harper is begging her sister to stop getting married. To wait and see how things go. They have not known each other long. It worries Harper, since for her sister it is her 3rd marriage already. Nick admits to her he still loves her. Even when she brings a soon to be ex-boyfriend to the shindig with her. He saves her when tragedy strikes, and she realizes that her feeling for him may still be there. Nick and Harper married young themselves, and had a misunderstanding that grand slammed its way into a divorce. If only they had a good example, or strength and trust in one another - they would have made it. This visit gets prolonged since, she cannot get home and has to road-trip it with Nick or wait several days for a flight. They seem to get along pretty well and it helps smooth over some ruffled feathers on the way back. I enjoyed the character development and I am glad how it turns out.
