Review of All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins
To Be Released: July 27, 2010
5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “One Happily-Ever-After Rocking Chair...and no sign of any forthcoming babies to rock in ol-Georgebury, Vermont. For Callie Grey, turning 30 means coming to grips with the fact that her boss (and five-week fling) is way overdue in his marriage proposal. And way off track because Mark has suddenly announced his engagement to the company's new Miss Perfect. If that isn't bad enough, her mom decides to throw her a three-oh birthday bash in the family funeral home.
Bad goes to worse when she stirs up a crazy relationship with the town's not so warm and fuzzy veterinarian, Ian MacFarland, in order to flag Mark's attention. So Ian is more comfortable with animals.... So he's formal, orderly and just a bit tense. The ever-friendly, fun-loving and spontaneous Callie decides it's time for Ian to get a personality makeover. But dang, if he doesn't shock the heck out of her, she might actually fall for Vermont's unlikeliest eligible bachelor....”
All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins was an absolutely hilarious story. I loved every minute of reading it because it had the best dialogue and the best characters. I gave All I Ever Wanted by Kristan Higgins 5 smirks because it made me laugh, cry, feel heart break, and every single other emotion there is. I loved that this book pulled me in at the very first chapter and made me feel emotions because the characters are written so well they could very well exist in real life.
