Book & Author details:

The One That I Want by Marilyn Brant 
(Mirabelle Harbor, #2)
Publication date: July 2015
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance


The summer after her beloved husband died in a car accident, Julia Meriwether Crane is still picking up the pieces of her life in Mirabelle Harbor and trying to help her ten-year-old daughter adjust to this difficult new reality.
After her best friend Sharlene—one of the well-known Michaelsen siblings—talks her into finally going out on the town again, Julia finds herself stunned to be the object of interest of several different men: The boy who’d broken her heart back in high school. The college ex she’d left behind. And most surprising of all, the movie actor she’d always fantasized about but had never met in person until now. Can one woman have more than one “great love” in the same lifetime? And, if so, how can she be sure which man that’ll be?
Sometimes the person you think will be best for you…isn’t the one you really want. THE ONE THAT I WANT, a Mirabelle Harbor story.


This book was a great take on the "grieving widow" story. 

Julia was a very strong, well-written character and I really liked the way Marilyn wrote the relationship between Julia and her daughter. They're both grieving the loss of Julia's husband but Julia is trying to be strong for her daughter and trying to teach her how to move on and enjoy her life all while struggling with that same thing. 

Enter Julia's friend, Sharlene, who pushes her to get back into the world of dating! I won't give away any of those fun details. You'll have to read the book but seeing Julia go through the world of dating was a lot of fun! 

There are some heavy moments in this book but overall it was a very enjoyable book. It was a very quick read for me, I finished it in about two days!
