Blurb

In Sarah Hegger's latest Willow Park Romance, long-held crushes and past frenemies reunite--and wonder if there's ever a second chance to make a good first impression. .

Holly Partridge had no plans to return to Willow Park, Illinois, until her troubled younger sister Portia fled her home and aimed herself straight at Holly's high school nemesis--too-gorgeous-to-be-true Josh Hunter. Riding a manic bipolar high, Portia's only a danger to herself, but Holly needs to find her before she crashes. That means asking Josh for help.

The ultimate love 'em and leave 'em lothario, Josh was never good for anything but a broken heart. But now he's lending a hand when Holly needs it most--and revealing surprising generosity and compassion. Has Josh shed his bad boy ways? Or is Holly suddenly grown up enough to acknowledge her own mistakes? Trusting Josh could be a disaster--or the first step in banishing the past to make way for a future happier than Holly ever imagined.

My all time favorite books…


Man, this is a tough thing to answer, because I have so many. I know as soon as I finish writing my list, I’m going to come up with about twenty more that should have been on the list.

Okay, let’s give this a go.

Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice and Emma - Who can resist her wonderfully flawed heroines, or those delicious men she pairs them with?
Adam Bede by George Elliot – such a heart-wrenching story
Our Mutual Friend – Charles Dickens. Not his most well-known work, but I had to read it for my Literature degree and devoured it.
Being There – Jerzy Kosinsky, which I loved so much I went to find his other novels and loved The Painted Bird just as much.
I Know This Much to be True by Wally Lamb. Words to rip your heart out, and they did.
The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy- Douglas Adams. If you’ve read it, you’ll know why.
The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett.
All of L.M. Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables books.
The Dragon Riders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey. And most of the other series she wrote. I’ve read and reread, and reread again.
Georgette Heyers’ romances with a particular soft spot for Arabella.
The Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. Although I haven’t read the last one as it was written posthumously by another writer. Still good, but not the same
Just about every book Robin Hobb has written, but loved the Farseer Trilogy and then the Tawny Man series.
David Eddings, specifically The Belgariad and The Mallorean.
All the Daughter of the Empire books by Janny Wurtz and Raymond E. Feist

Fantasy is my favorite genre after romance, you might have guessed. As for romance, it gets even harder to choose. But let me mention a few that come to mind.

The Courtesan Chronicles by Claudia Dain
Faking It by Jennifer Crusie. Best failed sex scene you’ve ever read. Fall off the couch funny.
Blue-Eyed Devil by Lisa Kleypas. Hardy Cates *sigh*. And while I’m doing Lisa’s books. Let me add Devil in Winter, Lady Sophia’s Lover and Sugar Daddy.
The Charley Davidson Series by Darynda Jones. Epically funny, and Reyes is another of my book boyfriends.
Natural Born Charmer by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
Catch of the Day by Kristan Higgins
A Duke of her Own by Eloisa James
Mystery Man and Motorcycle Man by Kristan Ashley

Time to stop, I know, but I could go on forever. The thing that draws me to a book and keeps me loving it, and often coming back to reread is great characters. Give me character with heart and substance and I’ll read anything.

I’d love to hear about your favorites. There is always space on my To Be Read pile for more.

Author Info
Born British and raised in South Africa, Sarah Hegger suffers from an incurable case of wanderlust. Her match? A hot Canadian engineer, whose marriage proposal she accepted six short weeks after they first met. Together they’ve made homes in seven different cities across three different continents (and back again once or twice). If only it made her multilingual, but the best she can manage is idiosyncratic English, fluent Afrikaans, conversant Russian, pigeon Portuguese, even worse Zulu and enough French to get herself into trouble.

Mimicking her globe trotting adventures, Sarah’s career path began as a gainfully employed actress, drifted into public relations, settled a moment in advertising, and eventually took root in the fertile soil of her first love, writing. She also moonlights as a wife and mother.She currently lives in Draper, Utah, with her teenage daughters, two Golden Retrievers and aforementioned husband. Part footloose buccaneer, part quixotic observer of life, Sarah’s restless heart is most content when reading or writing books.
She loves to hear from readers and you can find her at any of the places below.
