Blog tour: The one that I want by Marilyn Brant

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

Synopsis:

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.

MY THOUGHTS:
This was my first Marilyn Brant book and I can happily say that it will not be my last. I loved how Marilyn made the characters come alive for me. Julia lost her husband and the father of their daughter Analise, more than 9 mons ago. After being talked into getting back out there again Julia finds herself in a soap-opera almost with not one, or two, but THREE different guys. This book was about coping with loss and learning to move on, no matter how hard it is. Julia set out to be an example to her daughter and she accomplished it. This book made me laugh and get a little teary-eyed. I can't wait to read more from this brilliant author.
