Too Good To Be True by Kristan Higgins

Too Good to Be True by Kristan Higgins Summary:

When Grace Emerson’s ex-fiancé starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she’s seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr. Right? Someone…exactly unlike her renegade neighbor Callahan O’Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart.

Whoa. No. Callahan O’Shea is not her perfect man! Not with his unsavory past. So why does Mr. Wrong feel so…right?

 My Review of Too Good to Be True by Kristan Higgins:

Grace Emerson’s ex-boyfriend is a prick. Seriously. And her younger sister? A spoiled moron. Grace sure isn’t perfect either.

Luckily, she has better luck next time around in the love department with her neighbor Callahan (I love the name Callahan, by the way). She accidentally hits him with a hockey stick…and then a couple of other times too. Luckily, he has a well-developed sense of humor. He also appreciates that Grace’s neurotic tendencies can be construed as cute instead of completely insane.

Once again, Kristan Higgins and both her trademark humor and poignant moments hit dead-on and make Too Good to Be True fabulous.

One of my new favorite swoon-worthy moments of all time also occurs in this book. Four words: Gone With the Wind.

Anyway, I’ve come to regard Kristan Higgins as one of my favorite comfort read authors. I know that when I pick up one of her books, I will get a well-developed love story, tons of hilarity, and also a few moments that leave me in need of Kleenex. She is great at making her readers get caught up in the lives of her characters. My favorite book of hers remains Just One of the Guys, but this one is a great read as well.

    Sometimes these types of books can be cheesy and not what I usually go for. Your approving assessment makes me want to give this one a chance, and I'm actually looking forward to it! Thanks!
