Read the book that has book clubs everywhere falling in love! From the New York Times bestselling author of If You Only Knew comes an irresistible, heartbreaking novel.
Praise for On Second Thought:
“Higgins has perfect pitch when it comes to her upstate New York protagonists and their expanded worlds that even extend to Brooklyn. Emotional depth is seared into every page along with wry banter, bringing readers to tears and smiles. Another hit for Higgins.”—Library Journal, starred review
“A captivating read about two sisters dealing with love, loss and new beginnings. What sets this book apart is how one event changes both women's lives. Kate is refreshingly frank in her inner monologue, and Ainsley is charmingly self-aware and wry.”—RT Book Reviews, *5 STARS* Top Pick!
“Higgins' complex, witty characters will seem like close friends, and readers will savor each and every page as they find that love comes in many different flavors and forms. Demand will be high for the latest from this women's-fiction star.”—Booklist, starred review
Ainsley O'Leary is so ready to get married—she's even found the engagement ring her boyfriend has stashed away. What she doesn't anticipate is being blindsided by a breakup he chronicles in a blog…which (of course) goes viral. Devastated and humiliated, Ainsley turns to her older half sister, Kate, who's struggling with a sudden loss of her own.
Kate's always been the poised, self-assured sister, but becoming a newlywed—and a widow—in the space of four months overwhelms her. Though the sisters were never close, she starts to confide in Ainsley, especially when she learns her late husband was keeping a secret from her.
Despite the murky blended-family dynamic that's always separated them, Ainsley's and Kate's heartaches bind their summer together when they come to terms with the inevitable imperfection of relationships and family—and the possibility of one day finding love again.

Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these On Second Thought: A Novel I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

My second thoughts.
I started reading this on the fortieth anniversary of my husband's death and just finished a while ago. At first I was somewhat put off by the beginning of Kate's story in the first chapter. However, knowing my Kristan wouldn't suddenly write something that would let me down (unless she was truly taken over by aliens) I persevered. Please believe me when I say this is one of Kristan's finest and most mature books and you will love it. Kate and her sister Ainsley's stories will take you through all the emotions, including plenty of LOLs. It's not a book for sissies. I'll be 70 in a couple of months and loved the stories of women who lost and then won in the world of love at about the age that I did not. I never found my "second thoght" but it was nice to read about two women who did. Thanks, Kristan. You made me smile, again.

Funny and emotional - a great pairing with Higgins' "If You Only Knew"!
On Second Thought is a standalone, women's fiction novel written by the fabulous Kristan Higgins. In my opinion, this would be an ideal read after experiencing the perfection that is If You Only Knew – at least this is the order I followed due to publication dates and the fact that we get a few cameos from the former's MC's. Yay!!! But other than that, On Second Thought stands on it's own and it's just as good (well a close second place at least). It features alternating POV's from two half-sisters who are both facing individual heartbreaks. Their grief is real! ...and one thing I loved about these parallel portrayals is that Ms. Higgins shows that loss is loss whether the person you're mourning is still alive or gone. The grief, confusion, and anger (and all the underlying stuff) are the same and all are valid.
Similar in style to If You Only Knew, Ms. Higgins takes these heavy emotions and incorporates hilarity, family issues, romance, a villainous “other woman”, and another mysterious hero. This familiar setup is in no way repetitive or distracting, but again shows that Ms. Higgins wins at her storytelling capabilities. It's got laugh-out-loud scenes, a memorable man-hungry grandma, an eye-rolling narcissistic ex, some super sweet moments, sexy times, and soul-splitting heartbreak. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars, right? Check it out.
My favorite quote:
"Sometimes, a smile was the bravest act of all."

ON SECOND THOUGHT is a story you won't want to put down, and won't want it to end.
By Cindy Customer
As usual, Kristan Higgins has crafted a wonderful story full of complex and interesting characters. Kate, Nathan, Ainsley, Candy, Jonathan, Eric, and Daniel the hot firefighter made for a wonderful cast of characters. There are others in this story who added so much to the story, too, but the aforementioned were my favorites. There is humor, sadness, and romance of course. Most of all this novel was full of life. When you pick up a Kristan Higgins book, you know you will find a story you will love and characters you will want to read more about. ON SECOND THOUGHT is a book everyone should read. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
