Out of the Clear Blue Sky

release date: Jun 07, 2022
Out of the Clear Blue Sky
From New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins comes a funny and surprising new novel about losing it all—and getting back more than you ever expected. Lillie Silva knew life as an empty nester would be hard after her only child left for college, but when her husband abruptly dumps her for another woman just as her son leaves, her world comes crashing down. Besides the fact that this announcement is a complete surprise (to say the least), what shocks Lillie most is that she isn’t heartbroken. She’s furious. Lillie has loved her life on Cape Cod, but as a mother, wife, and nurse-midwife, she’s used to caring for other people . . . not taking care of herself. Now, alone for the first time in her life, she finds herself going a little rogue. Is it over the top to crash her ex-husband’s wedding dressed like the angel of death? Sure! Should she release a skunk into his perfect new home? Probably not! But it beats staying home and moping. She finds an unexpected ally in her glamorous sister, with whom she’s had a tense relationship all these years. And an unexpected babysitter in, of all people, Ben Hallowell, the driver in a car accident that nearly killed Lillie twenty years ago. And then there’s Ophelia, her ex-husband’s oddly lost niece, who could really use a friend. It’s the end of Lillie’s life as she knew it. But sometimes the perfect next chapter surprises you . . . out of the clear blue sky.

Pack Up the Moon
They used to joke about it. Like many brilliant scientists, Josh sometimes had trouble remembering things that needed doing in the “real” world—like buying groceries, eating regular meals, and talking to people. But he was happy to have his beloved wife, Lauren, remind him with her “honey do” lists. He just never realized how much he would need one when she was gone. Being a widower is not something Joshua Park ever expected. Given his solitary job, small circle of friends and family, and the social awkwardness he’s always suffered from, Josh has no idea how to negotiate this new, unwanted phase of life. But Lauren had a plan to keep him moving forward. A plan hidden in the letters she leaves him, giving him a task for every month in the year after her death. A plan that leads Joshua with a loving hand on a journey through grief, anger, and denial. It’s a journey that will take Joshua from his first outing as a widower to buy groceries…to an attempt at a dinner party where his lack of experience hosting creates a comic disaster…to finding a new best friend while weeping in the dressing room of a clothing store. As his grief makes room for new friendships and experiences, Joshua learns Lauren’s most valuable lesson: The path to happiness doesn’t follow a straight line. Funny, sometimes heart-wrenching, and always uplifting, this novel from New York Times bestselling author Kristan Higgins illuminates how life’s greatest joys are often hiding in plain sight.

CATCH OF THE DAY Perpetually single Maggie Beaumont almost believes that her perfect man is out there waiting for her. With her infamous romantic past—including a failed long-term relationship with her high school sweetheart and a dead-end crush on the new priest, Father Tim O’Halloran—it’s becoming more and more difficult to picture anyone rolling into the small town of Gideon’s Cove just to sweep Maggie off her feet. So when Father Tim offers to set Maggie up on a series of blind dates, she decides she has nothing to lose and lets him play matchmaker. THE NEXT BEST THING Lucy Lang wants a husband. She’s not looking for anyone special, just someone decent and reliable—but definitely not a man she’ll fall in love with. A young widow, Lucy already loved and lost her soulmate, and she doesn’t want to risk that kind of heartbreak again. But sick of being lumped in with her cursed “Black Widow” aunts, Lucy is motivated to give up her casual and completely inappropriate relationship with Ethan Mirabelli, her handsome neighbor, and search for something more dependable. SOMEBODY TO LOVE After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon''s Cove to sell the only thing she now owns—a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping. When her father''s wingman, James Cahill, asks to go with her, she''s not thrilled…even if he is fairly gorgeous and knows his way around a toolbox. Second on Parker’s list: find a nice man to have a no-strings-attached summer fling with…if that’s even possible in a small town.

Does being nobody''s fool mean that you''re nobody''s love? Colleen O''Rourke is in love with love...just not when it comes to herself. Most nights, she can be found behind the bar at the Manningsport, NY, tavern she owns with her twin brother, doling out romantic advice to the lovelorn, mixing martinis and staying more or less happily single. See, ten years ago, Lucas Campbell, her first love, broke her heart...an experience Colleen doesn''t want to experience again, thanks. Since then, she''s been happy with a fling here and there, some Olympic–level flirting and playing matchmaker to her friends. But a family emergency has brought Lucas back to town, handsome as ever and still the only man who''s ever been able to crack her defences. Seems like maybe they''ve got some unfinished business waiting for them – but to find out, Colleen has to let her guard down, or risk losing a second chance with the only man she''s ever loved. \"Higgins [offers] strong storytelling and a refreshing, sarcastic edge...thoroughly entertaining.\" – People magazine

One step forward. Two steps back. The Tufts scholarship that put Nora Stuart on the path to becoming a Boston medical specialist was a step forward. Being hit by a car and then overhearing her boyfriend hit on another doctor when she thought she was dying? Two major steps back. Injured in more ways than one, Nora feels her carefully built life cracking at the edges. There''s only one place to land: home. But the tiny Maine community she left fifteen years ago doesn''t necessarily want her. At every turn, someone holds the prodigal daughter of Scupper Island responsible for small–town drama and big–time disappointments. With a tough islander mother who''s always been distant and a wild–child sister in jail, unable to raise her daughter – a withdrawn teen as eager to ditch the island as Nora once was – Nora has her work cut out for her if she''s going to take what might be her last chance to mend the family. But as some relationships crumble around her, others unexpectedly strengthen. Balancing loss and opportunity, a dark event from her past with hope for the future, Nora will discover that tackling old pain makes room for promise...and the chance to begin again.

Devastated and humiliated, Ainsley turns to her half–sister, Kate, who''s already struggling after the sudden loss of her new husband. Kate has always been so poised, so self–assured, but Nathan''s death shatters everything she thought she knew–including her husband–and that sometimes the people who step up aren''t the ones you expect. With seven years and a murky blended family dynamic between them, Ainsley and Kate have never been overly close, but their shared sorrow dovetails their faltering worlds into one. Despite the lifetime of history between them, the sisters must learn to put their differences aside, open their hearts to the inevitable imperfection of family–and the possibility of one day finding love again.
