Used with permission. 9780373772247 Maggie's misadventures have entertained the gossips of Gideon's Cove for years, but at 32 she's getting frustrated with her lack of marital prospects. Accordingly, she embarks on a determined campaign, aided by the new priest in town, who is embarrassed by the crush she has developed on him, and by the members of her family, including her identical twin sister, who are only too eager to see her happily married. Fans of Janet Chapman's and Marcia Evanick's Maine-set contemporary romances featuring working-class people with complex lives and family issues will find many of the same elements in Higgins' second romantic comedy, starring a protagonist narrator who is a charmingly muddled, good-hearted, but impulsive and outspoken woman wanting desperately to settle down with Mr. Right. But since he is nowhere to be seen, she lavishes her attention on good works, her restaurant, her family, and her faithful golden retriever, while ignoring the one man who may just be her perfect match.--Welch, Lynne Copyright 2007 Booklist
