In Your Dreams (Blue Heron #4) by Kristan Higgins

In Your Dreams

Emmaline Neal is a cop in a small town. She is happy with her life, her job and her dog. Sometimes she is lonely but she tries to keep herself busy. Her parents still live back west and she is grateful to have her adopted sister in her life, although she is too perfect sometimes.  When a wedding invitation arrives she finds herself in desperate need for a date, hopefully male and striking.

Jack Holland is overwhelmed by the hero worship after saving some kids from getting drowned. But one is still in a coma and this makes Jack feel very guilty. When her sister asked her to help Em with her predicament he jumps to the idea. A few days away from home is what he needs. To his surprise he enjoys Em's company and he wants to get to know her better.

If only his ex-wife was not so needy....

My thoughts:

Disclaimer: I love Kristan Higgins books. She always transportsN me to small town family home where there is happiness, loss, a pet and funny moments. Her books always make me laugh, cry, squirm, LOL (yes, this one did it too and I almost woke up my hubby from all the laughing).

I love the Blue Heron series. The characters have become like family. And with each new book you get to see some of the new developments in their lives. Pru is still crazy, Levi's still serious, Tom is still the perfect Brit.

I like Em, I thought she was sweet but she wasn't a doormat. She was onto Jack's ex from the get go. I felt so bad for what her ex- fincĂ©e did to her and how her parents behave toward her.. And don't let me get started on poor Jack. His ex-wife definitely didn't deserve him. She was selfish and superficial.  But, Jack did made some mistakes and he made me want to scream at him a couple of times. I knew he was a good guy but he needed to stop the southern bell sooner.

If you like contemporary romance, you should add Kristan's books to your TBR. I know I do.

Favorite Quotes:

“Yeah, yeah, you’re gorgeous yourself. And where does a winemaker get washboard abs, by the way?”

“Next time we use handcuffs, it’s my turn,”

“Here’s the thing, Jack, I want a devoted husband and three extremely wellbehaved but delightfully irrepressible children. You up for that? Because otherwise, let’s skip dinner, since I’d probably fall in love with you in twenty, twenty-five minutes, then spend months resenting you for not feeling the same about me.”

“Hush, woman. We’re dating."

Cliffhanger :No
