Can’t Wait Wednesday – A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Kristan Higgins
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Kristan Higgins. Higgins is another one of my auto-buy authors so I’m thrilled she has a new book coming out in a few months. This one sounds like it has the potential to be such a moving read, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy,
A LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE by Kristan Higgins
Publication Date: June 6, 2023 by Berkley
A kid walks into your bookstore and… Guess what? He’s your son. The one you put up for adoption eighteen years ago. The one you never told anyone about. Surprise!
And a huge surprise it is.
It’s a huge surprise to his adoptive mother, Monica, who thought she had a close relationship with Matthew, her nearly adult son. But apparently, he felt the need to secretly arrange a vacation to Cape Cod for the summer so he could meet his birth mother…without a word to either her or his dad.
It’s also a surprise— to say the least—to Harlow, the woman who secretly placed her baby for adoption so many years ago. She’s spent the years since then building a quiet life. She runs a bookstore with her grandfather, hangs out with her four younger siblings and is more or less happily single, though she can’t help gravitating toward Grady Byrne, her old friend from high school. He’s moved back to town, three-year-old daughter in tow, no wife in the picture. But she’s always figured her life had to be child-free, so that complicates things.
When Matthew walks into Harlow’s store, she faints. Monica panics. And all their assumptions—about what being a parent really means—explode. This summer will be full of more surprises as both their families are redefined…and as both women learn that for them, there’s no limit to a mother’s love.

I just saw this one yesterday (day before?). That is some set up, and I am sure Higgins will get some tears from me too
Oh wow, this sounds so good! And very emotional too. Great choice, I hope you get to read it😁
June can’t come quickly enough!

I like the sound of this one! The premise is pretty similar to another book I just read, Not Since Ewe.
Oooh interesting! I hope you get to read this one soon.
My WoW post.

As an adoptee myself, I think this sounds like an intriguing book. I’ve never read anything by Kristan Higgins, but perhaps it’s time I remedy that. Thank you for sharing!

It sounds like it would be a very emotional read but hopefully a heart-warming one too with a happy ending! It would definitely be a hard to put down story!

The doggo! I think this is going to be such a good read — what a mix of characters all brought to gether around the theme of parenthood. I feel like crying will be involved when reading this!
It’s been a while since I’ve read a book by Higgins, but this one is calling to me. I hope we both love it.
